If you’re a fan of high end collectible toys, you’re probably familiar with Hot Toys. While Hasbro might dominate the toy store shelves selling plastic to kids, Hot Toys aims squarely at adult collectors with their life-like figures from their wide array of licenses such as Marvel, DC Comics, Star Wars, Predator, Terminator, and more. While the prices aren’t cheap, the amazing attention to detail, quality of materials used, and aftermarket value of the figures and vehicles due to the limited quantity of product, make many collectors extremely happy to pay whatever price to own the item. I own a few Hot Toys. They’re great.
I’m currently in Hong Kong because I’ve been covering the world premiere of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction. While most of the press left town on Friday, I decided to spend a few extra days exploring the city since I’ve never been to Asia. Yesterday, while wandering around Mong Kok (a popular shopping district) with friends, we stopped in at the Hot Toys “Secret Base” retail store. From the moment you walk in, you’re overwhelmed by some of the most amazing collectible toys. Since I know many of you would love to see what’s on display, I took pictures of everything. Hit the jump to check out the pics.
