Hot Toys in Hong Kong...Price check Please!

Post by HotToyKid on Wed Aug 03, 2011 3:35 pm

Hi All,

Quick query regarding the price of Hot Toy Figures in Hong Kong.

Anyone know if the Hot Toys figures are any cheaper in Hong kong at retail Stores (Toy Hunters for example) since that's where Hot Toys HQ is based?

Or do they have more of a standard RRP World Wide retail comparrison price, excluding what you see on ebay where it tends to be all over the place.

I'm pretty sure they have a RRP for all Hot Toys distibuted throughout the globe. I'm probably wrong though. When pre-orders are announced the prices only differ $10 or so. I have found the cheapest way (not by much) is to pre-order them from Corner Store Comics/BBTS as our dollar is so good at the moment and use their "Pile Of Loot" option to save a little on postage. You probably do that already though. I have been collecting these suckers for the last year and a half, the ultimate action figure IMO. How many do you have out iof curiousity?

Don't know if this is really relevant but when I was in Malaysia they had a huge store with all hot toy scale bodies and bits, everything from military to sci- fi and I'm pretty sure there were a loooot of knock off head casts I think people would buy the bits for customizing and such, imagine having to paint the eyes!

Can't remember the name of the store but I'm sure you could find out something online.

I only really got into Hot Toys within the last 6-12 months so I'm a real newbie. I think they have an amazing ability to nail a character likeness and the quality of the face sculps as far as I'm concerned get better with each new product they release. That's been a major factor for me.
