With the Marvel movie slated to open in about a month, what better time for the toy company to unleash their new 1/6th scale figure in the likeness of star Chris Hemsworth?
As with all their previous figures, great care looks to have been taken by Hot Toys in crafting this piece featuring a new head sculpt that includes his newly shorn locks and the red gladiator marking he’ll sport on his face when he goes mano a mano with a “friend from work” (aka Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk) in the Grandmaster’s (Jeff Goldblum) arena.
The figure also boasts a new gladiator armor, a red cape, and a variety of cool weapons including swords, daggers, mace, helmet, and shield. The one thing missing? Mjolnir. But hey, we saw Thor’s mighty hammer being destroyed by Hela (Cate Blanchett) in all those trailers and promos, right? Thor: Ragnarok will see Team Thor trying to put a stop to the Asgardian Goddess of Death’s plans to destroy Asgard.
Hot Toys’ Gladiator Thor figure is expected to be released approximately around the first or second quarter of 2018. Have a look at the gallery below and let us know what you think.
Will you be adding this one to your collection? Thor: Ragnarok opens Nov. 3.
