TOY PREVIEW: Hot Toys’ Agent Phil Coulson 12inch figure

June 18th, 2013 by Amy Williams Comments

We would like to say a big ‘welcome’ to our new writer Amy Williams as she looks at one of Hot Toys’ awesome upcoming figures

This is the latest Avengers figurine from Hot Toys to hit the market; released yesterday in the USA and expected in the UK in August of this year. This is the firm fan favourite Agent Phil Coulson in 1/6th scale limited edition collectable form. The collectible is based on the image of Clark Greg as Agent Coulson in the Avengers movie and as you can see is very impressive. The figurine is of the excellent quality that we have come to expect of Hot Toys and comes with a fantastic range of weapons and accessories (below).

The figure is approximately 30 cm tall and has a TrueType body with over 30 points of articulation. The figure also has five interchangeable hand pieces for holding his various accessories which include a pistol, the destroyer gun, a walkie talkie, a shield folder, a mobile phone, a staff card and his captain America trading cards stained in his blood, (I’m holding back a sob here!). Also included are the suit, shirt and tie worn in the movie and a figure stand with Agent Phil Couslon nameplate and the movie logo. The price is surprisingly at the cheaper end of the price scale retailing at around £149.99.

The box the figure is in is blueish gray in colour with a headshot of Agent Coulson and various Avengers’s logos and is a nice piece of artwork. Overall it’s the little details with this figure that make it so fantastic for example his destroyer gun has a light up function that is seriously cool.

The previous Avengers figurines have proved to be very popular with Loki selling out in the USA, so I would suggest pre-ordering this immediately as with quality like this he won’t be around for long. Especially as to date this is by far the best figure of Agent Coulson announced by any company.
