Hot Toys calls down the thunder with 'Age of Ultron' Thor figure

Although most Marvel fans are looking ahead to Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, Hot Toys isn't finished with Avengers: Age of Ultron just yet. This morning the high-end collectibles company unveiled its new 1/6th-scale Thor figure, based on the likeness of actor Chris Hemsworth in the blockbuster sequel.

Standing about 32 centimeters tall, the action figure boasts 30 points of articulation, a new head sculpt (which, judging from early reaction on Facebook, isn't exactly a crowd-pleaser), four pairs of interchangeable palms, an LED light-up Mjolnir and a metal Mjolnir with lightning effect accessory, and a display stand.

Hot Toys is also introducing a 3D augmented-reality app for iOS and Android that will allow collectors to explore and take photos of a scene in which Ultron Prime's Sentries swarm the Thor figure.

Thor is targeted to ship in the fourth quarter of 2015 or the first quarter of 2016.
