Hey everyone! I have a brand new custom for your viewing pleasure. You know the past couple of weeks I’ve been on a Movie Marvel kick with Falcon and Winter Soldier, and today is no different. I never liked that Agent Coulson never got the Marvel Legends treatment, so I decided to do my own. I used a shrunken down cast of the Hot Toys Coulson figure to ensure the likeness would be as perfect as possible to actor Clark Gregg. I gave the figure a ton of accessories, including his Destroyer Gun that he used against Loki in The Avengers. Be sure to check out the full photo set and description at the official page for the Coulson custom. And Coulson here is currently for auction on eBay for anyone interested. If you know someone who you think might want a one-of-a-kind custom action figure in their collection, feel free to pass the link along. Thanks for taking a look everybody.
His name is not “Agent”. He is Agent Phil Coulson. It’s terrible that he never got the Marvel Legends treatment, so I decided to make one myself. I wanted to be as accurate as possible with this. The body is a Movie Masters Alfred with the arms and legs from a Marvel Legends Professor Xavier spliced on for the double joints (with minimal sculpting to blend the legs), and the head is a shrunken down cast of the Hot Toys Agent Coulson head from fellow toy enthusiast Ross Barrow. Using this cast ensured that the likeness to Clark Gregg would be as perfect as you can get. I printed out a Coulson S.H.I.E.L.D. name badge at hi-res and laminated it for a full “Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” effect. I gave him a removable bluetooth earpiece, removable sunglasses, glock pistol, walkie talkie, set of 8 “vintage” Captain America trading cards (courtesty of John Mallamas AKA Jin Saotome), and the Destroyer Gun he uses against Loki in The Avengers. It’s a mix of several fodder gun pieces, made to look just like it jumped off the screen, complete with an illuminated effect in the barrel to make it look like it’s ready to blast! And now Agent Coulson is ready show that he doesn’t lack conviction to any threat S.H.I.E.L.D. faces!
Hot Toys has revealed a slew of official images for their upcoming 1/6 scale 1966 Batman and Robin action figures. It seems everybody has the 1966 Batman fever lately. Mattel currently has a 6″ toy line out, NECA is releasing a 1/4 scale Adam West Batman later this year, and now Hot Toys! I think it’s amazing that this era of Batman has persisted so well over the decades, and always seems to have great selling merchandise.
