It’s Christmas! If you’re reading this now, you’ve probably already opened all your presents and made a pile of all the gift cards/cash. So what are you going to spend it on, eh? How about using it to pre-order Hot Toys’ newest collectible: Mantis from The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special?

Even with all these accessories and costume parts, Mantis still comes in at a lower price than other MCU Hot Toys figures. She’s only $264, but she won’t ship until the first half of 2024. It sucks that she won’t arrive next Christmas. Oh, well.

I love the attention to detail, but I wish Mantis came with a second portrait with a smiling face. Unfortunately, her vacant expression clashes with all the cheery holiday accessories Hot Toys managed to cram in.
