Hot Toys Teases Their IM2 Whiplash Figure
March 23, 2010

In their latest newsletter the good people at Hot Toys are teasing their upcoming Whiplash figure from their Iron Man 2 line.   We’ve already seen what an amazing job they have done on War Machine, we have no doubt that Whiplash will be equally as incredible!

Guess who he is? An electrical technician, weapon designer, assassin or villain?
 
Holding sophisticated metal-like whips, wearing burnt and torn jumpsuit, carrying real-like electricity generator on his back, he is fiercely heading to battle against the armored superhero Iron Man!
 
Coming with full gear of highly detailed weapons and accessories, this collectible figurine shall be amazing enough to enter your collection, not to mention the newly developed head sculpt with realized likeness of the leading actor, Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke! Another highlight of the collectible is the forceful muscular upper body which is widely covered in patterned tattoos! Just like other Iron Man collectible figurines, the light-up function is expected, presenting on his chest.
 
Curious about how he looks like? More photos are coming! 

 

 

We’ll keep you updated when they post full pictures and the stats.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
