Sure all of the focus at San Diego Comic Convention is on Hot Toys’ 1/6 Avengers and Star Wars, but they had a handful of video game figures that really excite me. I mentioned about a week back that Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong from Resident Evil 6 were in Hot Toys 2015/16 product catalog. They were only illustrations, so I was hoping it wasn’t a project that got cancelled. It turns out it was not as Hot Toys had both Leon and Ada on display at their SDCC booth!
As the precedent that was previously set both figures come loaded to the teeth with accessories. Leon looks fantastic and is a vast improvement from the Resident Evil 4 figures they did many years ago. I prefer this Ada because she is actually clothed so I don’t have to deal with the odd seamless elbows and knees the RE4 version that came out last year has. I hope to have more info as far as release date and price soon.
We also have the second figure in the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance 1/6 line. The original Hot Toys Raiden has just hit Japan, and is currently making its way to the US. This new version is the Inferno Armor from the game, and I must say that the red is striking! His new red katana is amazing looking. I’d assume he’ll be similarly priced to the original Raiden which is about $300.
