Hot Toys MMS175 Avengers Thor – Video Review and Gallery

Video review of Hot Toys MMS175 Avengers Thor

The Mighty Thor, whom wields the mighty Mjolnir! Hot Toys have done it again with a stunning Representation of Chris Hemsworth as Thor from The Avengers. A brilliant likeness from head to toe, boots to hair.
Thor comes with a small parts count, that being said he comes with one of my favourite items so far. Mjolnir, Thors hammer. Made of a mixture of metal, plastic and leather it is a stunning piece.

Where the figure falls down is the articulation, though not as bad as you may think. His legs are well articulated especially in the ankle and knees, the split boot/shin guard does a lot to help this. He has waist articulation still due to softer plastic on the torso armour. He loses his ab crunch though due to the harder upper armour. The head is still fairly poseable as the hair sculpt has a great layered effect and pliable plastic. His arms are the weak part, due to going for screen accuracy with the armour plating. Elbows will still get 90 degrees and reasonable outward motion on the shoulders. They are fairly limited in upward motion. It’s acceptable as the look more than makes up for it.

This figure is a fantastic display piece and the use of a flight stand would not go astray ๐Ÿ™‚
I highly recommend this if you are an avengers collector it’s a must. Otherwise I’t isn’t a first place draft pick, Though it is up there.

  1. Hey Kal El Reviews, just followed a FB link of Kool Kollectibles and thought I’d check out what you thought of this figure – and I see you’ve got a heap of awesome reviews on here!

    I’m just going through your backlog now. Incidentally, I just launched the Toy Enthusiast Forum Australia at http://wednesdaytoys.forumotion.com/ and I would like to invite you to come along and say ‘hi’ – and obviously feel free to place links there whenever your new reviews go up.

    We all love talking about toys there, and it would be great to see you there sometime as well.

    That’s about it for now. If you have any questions or thoughts, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Kind regards,
    Jarrod
