[UPDATE: Pre-orders are now open]

Hot Toys has released some images of its upcoming 1/6-scale Guardians of the Galaxy Thanos figure.

Based on the character's appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Hot Toys' Thanos is a wonder to behold. While the character's face appears a little more human-like than his comics counterpart (as these film characters often go), the figure conveys all of Thanos' bulk and sheer presence. And the armor? Simply put, it looks glorious.

The cosmic baddy stands 38-cm tall (putting him close to 15-inches in height) so he should stand a head above many of your other 1/6-scale collectibles. He comes with his throne which will have LED light-up effects (ie, expect him to be on the pricey side) as well as some interchangeable hands. Oh, and did I mention he looks incredible?

Hot Toys' Thanos can be pre-ordered for a sizable (but not unexpected) US$415 and is slated for a late 2015/early 2016 release. Be sure to check out the gallery for all of the amazing images.

All hands on deck! Batten down the hatches because Funko has unleashed a flood of collectibles for Marvel's upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Rarely do we see this much merchandises for a franchise, let alone all at once but Funko intends to inundate collectors with selections from FIVE different lines in March (and a little of April).

See all the Avenger-y details after the jump.

Starscream mutilated for neat custom Hulkbuster Ultron photo
Starscream mutilated for neat custom Hulkbuster Ultron
by Scarecroodle

Pack Rat Studios has crafted a custom "Hulkbuster Ultron" and, if you like it, you can bid on it via ebay right now (or rather bid within the next 4 days).

The custom appears to be kit-bashed from a Transformers "Hunt for the Decepticons" Leader-class Starscream and an Iron Man Legends Ultron. While I can't identify the torso piece, it reminds me of something that I may have seen on one of Hasbro's Iron Man figures. It's topped off by a pretty awesome paint job on figures which originally had unremarkable paint apps.

The concept is pretty cool. Movie Starscream's design was a horrific mess that works well as a clunky Hulkbuster build. The overall design also looks surprisingly menacing and, because it's a leader-class, it's large enough to stand over most Hulk figures (be they Marvel Legends (seen in gallery) or Select). 

The custom's starting bid is US$150 and, in fairness, the HftD Starscream alone is pretty expensive on the aftermarket these days (although, if you were lucky enough to catch him at TJ Maxx/Marshall's a few years aback, he was only US$25).

While I mourn for poor ol' Starscream, I can't help but think that Michael Bay did far worse to the character. Be sure to check out all of the images in the gallery.

DST's Marvel Select movie Ant-Man unveiled photo
DST's Marvel Select movie Ant-Man unveiled
by Scarecroodle

Diamond Select Toys has given MTV News an exclusive first look at its Marvel Select Ant-Man, based on the character's appearance in the upcoming Ant-Man film where comedian Paul Rudd will play the titular role.

The release will apparently include a smaller, static (ie, non-articulate) version of Ant-Man which replicates his shrunken form. While the mini Ant-Man won't necessarily be in scale to his movie counterpart, there's only so much you can do without compromising detail. The figure also includes two alternate pairs of hands.

While I won't pretend to be an Ant-Man fan (my friend Julian, on the other hand...), but I imagine it should be an amusing film. DST has done some pretty new work here, given the source material and all. Frankly, I'm just impressed that DST can even keep up with all of these Marvel movies. I know I've been struggling.

RE:EDIT Iron Man first figure set to arrive

The first figure of Sen-ti-nel's RE:EDIT Iron Man series has arrived with Bleeding Edge Iron Man. The figure, like others will be in the series, are designed by Chemical Attack and are "edits" of comic-based Iron Man designs....

by Scarecroodle

Marvel.com has unveiled Funko's latest Guardians of the Galaxy Pop!s: a wave based on the Marvel movie-verse's cosmic villains which includes a super-sized Thanos!

The wave includes the likes of Yondu, Ronan, Nebula and The Collector, all of whom play second fiddle to Funko's Pop! Thanos. While this isn't the first time that Funko has produced some of these characters (many of whom appeared in the Mystery Minis lines), this definitely the first time we've seen Funko (or perhaps anybody else?) produce a figure for the Collector. So yeah, it's kinda big little news (or little big news?).

No word on a release date, but you might expect to see this early next year. Be sure to check out the full images in the gallery.

Now you can have Tony Stark do SCIENCE with this Hot Toys figure

You might have gleaned from my trip to SDCC that Hot Toys hasn't been stingy when it comes to making Iron Man figures. As long as there are variants to make, companies are going to make them. Their latest will be Tony Stark, ...

Deadpool joins Funko's Hikari line + new Groot photo
Deadpool joins Funko's Hikari line + new Groot
by Scarecroodle

Funko has unveiled its first-ever Hikari Premium Deadpool as well as a new (Entertainment Earth-exclusive) Groot colorway, both of which are currently available for pre-order.

Deadpool's first Hikari is listed as "Classic Deadpool" and sports a slightly modified version of the character's classic colors. While Deadpool's various costume colors raced through my mind a few moments ago, it occurred to me that we *still* haven't seen a Hikari Wolverine. When's that going to happen, Funko?

The newest Groot is labeled "Planet X Groot" (presumably unrelated to the Grant Morrison storyline of the same name?) and features a heavy yellow paint deco over a brownish base. It's an interesting color-mix, although I wouldn't rank it among my favorite decos.

Funko's Hikari Premium Deadpool (1,500 piece limit) and the Entertainment Earth-exclusive Planet X Groot (1,000 piece limit) are both slated to release early next year. As always, you can win one over at Funko's Facebook page.
