kit - newmar1

Silver screen icons most known for playing classic Batman foes Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt are latest two classic screen ladies being replicated into 1/6 scale figures thanks to the teaming up of Phicen and Executive Replicas – the same team up that brought Caroline Munro and multiple other screen icons into the same scale.

Dressed as their iconic Catwoman alter-egos, Newmar played the cat loving villain from 1966 to 1967 (seasons one and two) while Kitt took over the role from 67’to 68′ (season three).

Both figures stand 12″ tall and feature (semi) detailed head sculpts along with Phicen’s well known seamless bodies, though, for some unknown reason, are not using the sturdy standard stainless steel skeleton with Phicen instead opting to use their inferior plastic skeleton.  Also to note is the missing of Newmar’s catwoman ‘cat ears’ headpiece which Phicen are not planning to include.

 Check out below what each figure comes with:

“I have to protect the one thing that I can’t live without. That’s you.” – Tony Stark

At last count, 1/6 scale toy company Hot Toys have released over 100+ variants of Marvel’s Iron Man (Probably exaggerated but enough Iron Man already!) and now, fans can add their very own 12″ Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts to their collection.

From the Hot Toys press release:

“In the Iron Man movie series, Pepper Potts has been a very important person in Tony Stark’s heart. As the love interest of Tony Stark, and assisting Tony in the defeat of Obadiah Stane and Aldrich Killian, Pepper has been there with the genius billionaire at the most crucial moments in the film series. Fans have been longing for a collectible figure of her and today Hot Toys is delighted to officially reveal the 1/6th scale Pepper Potts Collectible Figure from Iron Man 3!

The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts in the film featuring a newly developed head sculpt with long straight light reddish-blonde real fabric hair, finely tailored costume, an interchangeable Iron Man Mark IX right arm with LED light-up function, and figure stand!

Pepper Potts will be a great addition to your Iron Man and Tony Stark collection!”

An alternate version on this release includes a Pepper Potts and The Mark IX Iron Man which includes a Pepper Potts in Mark XLII helmet head sculpt which can be fitted to the suited body.  This solo release however includes the excellent addition of the Mark IX arm she sported in the closing moments of Iron Man 3 – totally my favorite part in the film btw!pepper-potts-with-suit-arm-and-new-powers-l

Check out all the promotional images below:

Ever since Pepper’s scene stealing moment in Iron Man 3 where she finds herself wearing part of the Iron Man armor and blasting evil Guy Pierce away, I’ve been hanging for a Pepper Potts/Rescue figure.  Hasbro teased us of a 6″ release back when IM3 was released but then balked on the figure and there’s been a slew of 1/6 scale knock-offs (they’re really really bad) and this release from Hot Toys finally quenches that thirst – even if these promo images have her stealing Homeland’s Carrie Mathison’s look…..

With numerous Iron Man/Captain America/Thor releases, Hot Toys are starting to make their mark with the female characters with 4 total Black Widow releases, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora and more recently Avengers new-comer Scarlet Witch and Marvel’s Agent Maria Hill which was revealed at the 2015 Toy Fair and is currently available for pre-order.

No word yet on Pepper’s release but keep an eye out at http://www.sideshowtoy.com for the pre-orders like I will be doing!  This one’s a keeper for me!

Hot Toys Avengers Age of Ultron 1/6 Scale Scarlet Witch First Look

Action Figure vs Real Thing
Action Figure vs Real Thing

When it comes to the world of Avengers and merchandise, it’s a well known fact the ladies who kick ass receive the fewest amount of gear on the shelves.  While Thor, Iron Man and Captain America are littered throughout the toy isles, Black Widow and the newly added Scarlet Witch have seen very little fanfare with the exception of an action figure here or there.

To be sure though, 1/6 figure production giant Hot Toys have stemmed this nasty bleed by releasing four Black Widow figures along the Iron Man/Avengers/Captain America way and have now released the first look of the brand new Scarlet Witch deluxe figure.

“Age of Ultron – the 1/6th scale Scarlet Witch Collectible Figure!  The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch in the film featuring a newly developed head sculpt with long curly brown real fabric hair, finely tailored costume, specially created hands with red translucent fingertips and effect accessories to emulate Scarlet Witch using her powers. Ultron’s heart which Scarlet Witch has taken from the robot’s body is also included as a special bonus accessory!”

With Hot Toys offering something like 20 different Iron Man Figures, it’s nice to see someone like Scarlet Witch get some lovin’!

Check out all the photos in the gallery below:

No news of release date or sale price but going off Black Widow’s Age of Ulton figure, one can expect to pay in excess of $280US for her.

Think the likeness to Elizabeth Olsen is spot on?  Think you might add this to your collection?  Sound off in the comments below!
