Hot Toys Toy Fair Exclusives 2013 will be Captain America, Joe Colton & evil Superman

From Hot Toys:
It’s summer time again where some of the biggest toy fairs will be hosted. To celebrate the start of this bustling season, Hot Toys is thrilled to share with you a first glance at one of the Toy Fairs Exclusive items this year – the Star Spangled Man Version of Captain America Collectible Figurine.

Please stay tuned for the pre-order information of the “Star Spangled Man with a plan” as well as the reveal of more Hot Toys 2013 Toy Fairs Exclusive items.

Besides Captain America (Chris Evans), General Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) from G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) and evil Superman (Christopher Reeve) from Superman III will be the Hot Toys Toy Fair Exclusives for 2013. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures

The addition of the cue cards on the back of Cap's shield is a nice touch. You can check out my toy blog post of 1/6 scale Chris Evans as Steve Rogers in Classic Captain America costume by Captain Action HERE and HERE

Superman's Evil Persona was a separate being that was created from Superman, due to exposure to Synthetic Kryptonite which temporarily separated him into two beings. Apparently, most of his unpleasant characteristics were imbued on his evil twin, who acted without morals or care for others.("Superman III" - This character exists in the films continuity only)

General Joe Colton is portrayed by Bruce Willis in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. In the film, General Colton has one of George S. Patton's M-1911 pistols. 1/6 scale Bruce Willis head sculpts have been released by the dozens and it shouldn't be too difficult to kitbash a Bruce Willis General Joe Colton figure.

These are what the Toy Fairs exclusives will be for Hot Toys for 2013. I think a lot of us are breathing a sigh of relief and thankful that this will not be hurting our pockets or wallets much ;p
