Hot Toys' "Movie Masterpiece" figure captures the essence of the universe's worst big purple sad dad
Marvel Studios' Avengers: Endgame is currently tearing up the box offices worldwide, and in May of 2020 Japanese fans will have a chance to own their little piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a great big 1/6 scale figure of Thanos, the ultimate villain of the MCU.
The "Movie Masterpiece - 1/6 Scale Fully Poseable Figure: Avengers: Endgame - Thanos" from Hot Toys stands approximately 42 centimeters (16.5 inches) tall and includes 20 points of articulation as well as various accessories (a removable helmet, a sword), gimmicks (two LED light up Infinity Gauntlets, one with individual articulation on the fingers, one with a clenched fist), facial expressions (neutral, angry), and a hexagonal base with the Avengers: Endgame logo.
This impressive figure costs a pretty penny, retailing for 55,000 yen ($492.95 US) including tax. Western fans who want a piece of this Mad Titan's actions might have some difficulty acquiring one, because the "Movie Masterpiece - 1/6 Scale Fully Poseable Figure: Avengers: Endgame - Thanos" is a limited edition item that is only licensed for sale in Japan.
