Hot Toys is having a great time making all sorts of cool collectibles for Avengers: Age of Ultron. These new offerings will take your collection all the way from deadly to cute.

First up, the Iron Legion Sixth Scale Collectible Figure, which features over 25 points of articulation, LED-lighted eyes and rectangular-shaped RT on the chest. The armor has metallic red, white and navy blue colored paint and weather effects, along with Avengers decals. The chest armor is also removable.

It also comes with: One pair of interchangeable forearm rockets, one pair of palms with articulated fingers and light-up repulsors, and one pair of battle palms with a light-up repulsor.

Personally, I’d be freaked to have it in my house for fear it would become Ultron.

For those of you who like a dose of cuteness with your toys, there’s also the Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby Series 2!

This series features Tony Stark’s new Iron Man Mark XLV suit, Ultron Prime, Ultron Mark I, War Machine Mark II, Black Widow and Vision. Plus, the collectible set of seven includes a Tony Stark (Mark XLIII Armor Version).

How brilliant is this?

This set of six Alien toy eggs comes in it’s own protective egg carton, just like the ones you get at the grocery store. We strongly advise you don’t mix up the two. The set includes three unhatched eggs and three that have little face huggers who are looking to make some close, personal friends. They’ll be available from NECA later this year with pricing to be announced.

See the NECA tweet after the break.

There are plenty of Lego-themed games out there, but none of them embrace the idea of a first person shooter. Visual effects artist Andrew McMurray decided to change that by adding Lego minifigs to games like Portal, Bioshock, and Counter Strike. Even Skyrim is in there as a bonus. Too bad there isn’t a playable mod.

These Star Wars die cast race cars are wonderfully quirky little cars. The set of five includes R2-D2, C-3PO, Yoda, Darth Vader and a stormtrooper in unique designs. The fronts look like each character’s face, kinda like the cars in the Pixar movies. They will be available for preorder (in Asia anyway) beginning in July.

batman sketch figure top

This looks like a sketch done with pencil and paper, but what you’re looking at is a figure that will be available at this year’s SDCC for $40. It’s part of the Designer Series of figures which bases action figures on the style of a particular artist.

This one is based on Batman: Hush artist Jim Lee. It will measure 7″ tall and comes in a box with a sketch done by Lee. There will also be a pricier $300 limited edition of only 150 pieces that will have original Lee artwork.

lego-adventure-city-stop-motion

At first “Lego Adventure in the City” seems like a typical day for a Lego snake who lives in a “small house on top of a very high building” that he travels to on a rocket. Yup. Totally normal day so far.

Everything seems fine until a wave of murky gray LEGO bricks threatens the entire town and the snake jumps into action to save the day.

Aside from the mix of fantastic LEGO and live-action stop motion animation, the story is narrated by the cutest child voice ever.

This adorable short, written and directed by Rogier Wieland for Lego China, took six animators and two set builders to to complete. As you’ll see, an incredible amount of work and passion that went into this project.

Watch the short and the behind the scenes video after the break.
