hmmm, thats where I pre-ordered from.... might have to drop them an email when I get a chance as I haven't had any shipping notice for mine yet
Looking good Tommy.
The pics with Thor look really smart.
Any plans for poses yet??
As he is in the pics is how he'll be staying nice and simple pose with him
Must admit he's grown on me as the day has gone on lol
if you don't mind me asking when did you order it from them?
there's still no sign of mine
It was the 23rd June, although I was pro-active about my order. When I heard others had got there's I emailed him and asked when mine was going to be shipped as others had got there's and he said it was shipped that same day and got it a week later.
cheers, I was getting ready to get annoyed if you'd ordered after me but it was september when I stuck the order in so must of missed out on their first batch
did email them last weekend and got an almost immediate response that it should be posted 'next tuesday' so was expecting some movement last week but thinking about it he may have meant this tuesday coming
will just have to be a bit more patinet
It does look good. Have they sorted the issues out with it?
Mine should be here this week for Collectables direct.
I've also found the pose he'll be going in too, if I can do it
Just paid off my final OSB payment. Woohoo!
Do they take payment automatically when it's due in stock? I haven't been contacted or had payment taken
They send you an invoice via email and then you go into Paypal and pay it.
If you haven't received the email, I would check your Paypal account anyway.
Hopefully that means they will be shipping soon
I paid mine up front back in June so fingers crossed it will be here soon
Shipped this morning.
First come, first served basis, so if you haven't gotten an email yet, you'll be in the next batch.
Looking forward to your pics.
That's cool I'm in no real hurry...I'm still faffing about with Jack Sparrow at the mo lol
Let us know what you think
Apologies for the terrible photos, I had such a hard time photographing this guy. Also, as much as I'd probably hate to admit it, I do see Evans in the sculpt from certain angles. It's in the eyes.
Some things to be mindful of:
1. The head/neck on mine wasn't firmly on, leading to some comedy giraffe neck. Push that thing down. Hard. Don't be shy.
2. Really stiff joints, as well as the knee joints not being lined up correctly with the boots. I went to bend his knee and found it turned halfway around his leg. The arms in particular, are very stiff.
3. The shield has a little clasp that can popped open with tweezers and makes putting it on that much easier. I believe there are some instructions on how to put the shield on properly, but being a man, I said 'fook that' and did it my way.
4. If you're putting the revolver in the holster, angle the little pin up the way, it makes attaching it to the flap again, that much easier.
5. Don't be afraid to pull the boots off and tuck those trouser legs down. If the lower leg comes off with the boot, DON'T PANIC! It just pops back on again.
6. The shield is a fingerprint magnet.
Hate the machine gun, the hands won't hold it convincingly enough, plus Captain America doesn't need no stinking shooter, so in the box it remains.
Thanks for the heads up, mine arrived today. Looks great, but the new headsculpt is a bit of a let down from the protoype I feel.
rebel_scum your display needs more Thor and less Spiderman
Thor stays with Odin, awaiting Loki.
How about some sex appeal?
So OSB sent out my cap America using UPS and just wanted to know if ups deliver on Saturdays??
You didn't get it today??
Mine was sent by UPS yesterday & arrived today.
I would probably assume though that they don't deliver on Saturday's
Pretty sure they are a Monday to Friday operation.
Hope your's gets there soon though...he's awesome
Nate mine was collected by ups today which sucks been waitin forever for this figure and will have to wait till Monday, waitin this long for it had made the novelty wear of a bit cheers for replying back Neil!!
No worries buddy...sorry to hear it's only been collected today.
Honestly though the wait is worth it...the figure is immense & just so cool.
You won't be sorry.
How'd ya get on fitting the Shield Neil?
Haven't tried it yet.
I haven't got my cabinets sorted out yet so until I can get him setup in there properly & then I'll tinker properly.
Until then he has joined the growing tower of Hot Toys in the corner of the bedroom lol
What you got now? And what's on your to get list?
I thought it was just me that stacks them up in the corner.... only got 5 to open at the minute but have just got a few notices for statues so will need to make space to stack them before they arrive
Only got 3 at the mo...
MkIV Iron Man
Jack Sparrow (On stranger Tides DX)
To buy once the pre-orders go up...
Robocop Version 2
After that I have a couple I'm still umming & Aahing about...
Black Suit Spidey
Sucker Punch Babydoll
Then it's a case of wait to see what they do with Avengers & Green Lantern Licence's but I expect a figure or 2 from them as well at some point
This really was probably the most expensive hobby to ever get involved in lol
What have you got now & what's in your Hot Toys future??
Does it not come with a tracking number? If it's out on delivery today it should say so on there tracking site.
