Hot Toys rarely disappoints with their sixth scale figures, and their upcoming Ghost Rider collectible figure from the Marvel television series Agents of SHIELD is no exception. As you can see, this particular figure is the hottest of Hot Toys figures, and I believe that it is their first from Agents of SHIELD.
Hot Toys describes the figure thusly:
Expertly crafted based on the appearance of Ghost Rider, the collectible figure features a newly sculpted skull with LED light-up function and articulated lower jaw, a fire-shaped hair sculpture and a finely tailored costume to create impressive likeness. Ghost Rider also comes with 2 styles of chains and a number of fire effect accessories to simulate him using his superpowers. He will be standing on a fire-themed figure stand with Ghost Rider nameplate and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. logo.
Sadly, the Hot Toys Agents of SHIELD Ghost Rider figure is slated as a Toy Fair exclusive that’s “only available in select markets”, so getting your hands on one won’t be easy (or cheap). Hot Toys did release a Ghost Rider figure based on the movie starring Nicholas Cage a while back, though the only place for collectors to get that figure these days is through 3rd parties on Amazon or eBay. Odds are that’s where the general public will be able to pick this figure up - at a premium of course. The only other option that we know of is the sixth scale figure from Sideshow Collectibles. UPDATE: Sideshow has opened up a waitlist for the $229 figure here.
