If you’re like me (and why wouldn’t you be?), you just made a strict resolution to cut down on the number of plastic and resin representations of Chris Hemsworth allowed in your living space. It’s a delicate balance, really, but there is a subtle tipping point between whimsical collection and police evidence. And while we’re barely a week into the new year, I’m willing to make an exception to my resolution for Sideshow Collectibles’ gorgeous Sixth Scale Limited Edition Thor from Marvel Studios’ The Avengers.
The film-accurate figure is lovingly crafted in the image of Chris Hemsworth, highlighting a newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume, accessories and Thor’s weapon of choice, the mighty Mjolnir. Approximately 12” (32cm) tall and with over 30 points of articulation, Thor comes with not one, not two, but THREE pairs of interchangeable hands. You always want a nice selection of hands for daily casual, formal wear or for beating the life out of your evil brother. Thor’s cape is detachable, so if your Iron Man figure makes fun of him, he can ditch it before going into battle.
At $199.99, it also goes against the resolution to live within my means, but after this singular purchase, I can easily go back to all the resolutions that prohibit this sort of purchase.
This limited edition figure is available for pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles and will ship in February.
