With Justice League hitting theaters this week, there is naturally a lot of excitement surrounding DC right now. Of course this also means that fans are being given the opportunity to pick up a lot of tie-in merchandise for the big movie. And of course with superheroes, the toys are always some of the most sought after tie-ins to the movies. But while the kids no doubt already have lots of toys for them to grab for the holidays, the collectors also want something to look forward to. So Sideshow and Hot Toys are providing just that, with some special made toys that you definitely won’t want to let the kids get ahold of to smash around.
These figures of the members of the Justice League are each carefully crafted to look identical to the actors they are based on. With lower quality toys they may say they are based on the movie, but you usually have to squint your eyes to see anything resembling the actors from the movie. Not with these figures, though. These figures are so meticulously crafted after Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and their fellow Justice League stars that they genuinely look like real life photos of the actors in the close up shots of each toy.
The lineup will feature all the members from the movie, including Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman, and the Flash, all of whom are available for pre-order now, and Superman and Cyborg being set to be available to order soon. Each figure is about a foot tall, and includes a variety of accessories, including different hands to pose the heroes with or without their weapons. There are also some deluxe versions of the figures to pick up, such as the deluxe Wonder Woman that includes the Amazon with a black hooded robe and has greater flexibility for being displayed.
The incredible realism of these toys is the kind of quality you’ll have to pay for, though, as each figure is currently priced at more than $200. However, the figures do have payment plans available if you’re thinking about buying all the members of the Justice League. It will be some time before you get to see the figures up close, though, as orders on most of the figures won’t be shipping out until between October and December of 2018. But if you’re a big Batman fan, the Batman figure is coming a bit sooner, with an expected shipment date of between April and June 2018.
Each figure is specially crafted to replicate not only the actors from the Justice League movie, but also the exact details of their outfits. If you see Justice League this week and wind up becoming a big fan, you’ll probably have to wait until after the New Year to place an order for the home release of the movie. But you can still put in an order for an early Justice League gift to look forward to with one of these incredible life-like figures.
