Will Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder help the heroic Asgardian reclaim his spot as something more significant than the MCU’s punchline? Who knows. I can gather from this upcoming God of Thunder figure from Hot Toys that Thor is going to look friggin’ awesome at one point.
Aesthetically, the deluxe Thor action figure we found over at Sideshow Collectibles is pretty cool. The helmet is a little silly, but the gold, blue, and black armor is pretty sweet when the lightning effects are applied. Since Hot Toys figures are highly detailed and loaded with LEDs, Thor will really pop when displayed on a shelf.
The Son of Odin is $345 and will ship between October 2023 and March 2024. Phew. That’s a long wait.
The brand-new collectible figure is skillfully crafted based on the appearance of Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the movie. It features a head sculpt specially applied with luminous reflective effect that accentuates Thor using his thunder power, a specialized body to depict his muscular physique, a red-colored cape, gold and blue body armor with LED light-up function, LED light-up Stormbreaker, assorted lightning effect accessories with luminous reflective effect applied, and a figure stand.
