These pictures taken of the Hot Toys 10th Anniversary Exhibition in Tokyo (a big THANK YOU to the guys who were there and took pictures and shared them) have been floating around on the internet and it has thrown up quite a few surprises and lots of expectations for 2011 :)
First - the usual suspects: Iron Man Mark V and Mark VI plus a host of other upcoming releases we have already seen in pre-released pictures such as Ghost Rider, SGT Barnes from Platoon, T-800 from Terminator, Barney Ross from Expandables etc etc
But check this out: Hot Toys Iron Monger! It's so recent that they didn't even have time to splash on some paint to make it look less "plasticky" and "toyish"
1/6 Thor was also there and the god of thunder looks GOOD
Let's not forget the 1/6 girls who were there as well - Resident Evil Jill Valentine Battlesuit version
I'm most excited about this :> Resident Evil Alice. Finally, a 1/6 scale Milla Jovovich female action figure is within reach and happening very soon too
