Thomas dips into the quantum realm to review Sideshow‘s new Hot Toys Ant-Man figure
Along with the Wasp, Hot Toys released Ant-Man from Ant-Man And The Wasp. It is the third version of the character they have made, each version had a different suit from each of his previous appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The box design is the same as The Wasp – similar to the Star Wars box, meaning no open window box and instead of a picture of the figure inside the box, there is a picture with the cast & crew listed.
This figure comes with 6 interchangeable hands, 2 disks, a shrinking lab, an alternate handle for the lab, a tiny Ant-Man figure, a Scott Lang headsculpt, batteries for the helmet, a retracted helmet (to display with the head), additional hand joints, a basic stand, and a backdrop. The stand is red, Ant-Man’s color, and features both a small picture of Ant-Man and the logo of the movie. The nameplate is Scott Lang.
The cardboard backdrop is the same in design as the Wasp except that this time it features pictures of Ant-Man shrinking. The suit is fantastic, once again Hot Toys has done an amazing job! Several parts move like the shoulder pads but be careful not to remove them as they are not removable. They move to allow a better articulation range for the figure!
Just like the Wasp, the helmet has a metallic feel and features a beautiful LED light-up feature.
The Scott Lang headsculpt has been the topic of many talks on the internet since the figure was released because of the smiling face. I have to say when I first saw the pictures I was skeptical but seeing it in hands, it is a great sculpt. You can see Paul Rudd in there. Being Ant-Man, giving him a smiling face isn’t a problem.

It is a pretty good figure and is a great addition to The Wasp!
