I’m looking forward to see the Astro Boy movie which will be in theaters this October but I think I’m more excited to see this Astro vinyl figure from Hot Toys. Deep in slumber, Astro Boy looks really cool in a diorama set up. Those wires attached to him make the figure look more interesting, like he’s suspended in air. ^^
Approximately 12.5″ inches tall, (I guess this includes the whole set-up), this Astro Boy figure allows limited movements and is set to come out in the fourth quarter of this year. Check out the movie trailer below.
The classic Astro Boy is also available from Hot Toys. This 1/6 scale figure (approximately 9 inches tall) is more poseable with 22 points of articulation. Also included are 2 sets of interchangeable posing hands, battery-operated illuminated eyes for X-ray vision mode, interchangeable arm cannons, interchangeable rocket boots and a figure display base with Astro Boy movie logo.
Oh, and you can open up that box on his chest to reveal a positive blue energy inside which I think is pretty cool too. ^^
