Holy shit, this figure is awesome! Hong Kong based, figure designer/manufacturer, Hot Toys, is well known for their incredible action figures from movies such as ‘Iron Man’ and ‘The Dark Knight’. Well, Hot Toys (who is collaborating with Sideshow Collectibles) signed a huge licensing agreement with LucasArts to make 1:6 scale articulate action figures for Indiana Jones. I can honestly say that every Indy figure that came out in the past looks like shit. Other than the signature clothing, the facial sculpt was less than spectacular and it makes me cringe. This is not the case with Hot Toys x Sideshow Collectibles’ Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark: Indiana Jones Movie Masterpiece DX05 1:6 scale collectible action figure This bad ass version of our favorite professor of archeology comes with an array of accessories such as his signature whip, brown fedora, and even a golden Fertility Idol statue! It even comes with Hot Toys’ “Parallel Eyeball Rolling System” which allows Indy’s eyes to adjust pending on his pose. I have collected about 80% of all of Hot Toys’ releases and this figure makes me giddy like a little school girl. It’s THAT freakin’ awesome. Indy will release in the summer and goes for about $250. Like most Hot Toys figures, this figure will go up in value. Hit the jump to check out more pix!
Adidas… Oh, you sneaky loveable bastards… Last month, iGT showed a glimpse of next years Star Wars themed collection from Adidas Originals and Lucas Arts. Now we finally get to see whole she-bang! While some of the sneakers and shoes are very subtle when it comes to it’s relations to the Star Wars universe like the Imperial AT-AT Walker high-top sneakers, some of the designs are quite in-your-face epic such as the X-Wing fighter pilot uniform, TIE fighter, and Planet Dagobah inspired shoes and clothing. The collection will be split into three different waves according to the theme type.
- Characters Pack: This pack takes the most iconic moments and characters from the Star Wars saga and brings them to life across five sneakers, two short sleeve T-shirts and the Superstar Track Top.
- Vehicles Pack: For this pack, we have taken inspiration from the well known vehicles and crafts from the Star Wars saga and translated them to our five most iconic adidas Originals sneakers and two key adidas Originals apparel models. Across these models we have paid homage to the distinguished features of airborne crafts and land based vehicles from both sides of the Force and executed them to appeal to both adidas and Star Wars fans alike.
- Direct Pack: Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers appear in this pack as well as in the Characters pack. Also, the Women’s Game Mid silhouette that appears here is inspired by Princess Leia, featuring gold detailing paired with a modern high-top silhouette with matching apparel.
This epic collection is only the first season collection so it is safe to assume that there will be more to come. The collection will be available through Adidas Original stores and participating retailers. I personally will be dropping a shit load of credits to get some of these goodies. Will I wear them? I do not know. I am not sure I can handle some dumb Star Trek bastard accidently steppin’ on my kicks. Unless, she’s really cute. I’ll let it pass.
