Unboxing: GOTG2 Hot Toys Stan Lee 2019 Toy Fair Exclusive

It’s time for another Hot Toys unboxing and this time I am taking a look at the man who is responsible for the majority of our most beloved comic superhero’s – Stan Lee. This figure from Hot Toys is the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 version. Let’s get to the unboxing.

The full packaging is actually much larger than a standard Hot Toys box with the additional moon rock base/seat included with the figure. The figure box as seen above has an orange color scheme with Stan pictured on the front.

The back of the box has the standard Hot Toys design with some manufacturing details while the inside slip cover has the names of the artists who created this wonderful piece.

From Hot Toys: Marvel legend Stan Lee, makes a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 just as he’s done in every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie! In his scene, which takes place on a planetoid called Xander, Stan Lee is surrounded by members of the Watchers, the ancient race who observe everything happening in the universe and who occasionally meddle in it despite a strict non-interference policy.

You can view the scene from GOTG2 which this character is based on below:

As with most HT figures, the inside has the large clear window with the plastic holders keeping all the goods in place. Here we can see Stan laid out with his space suit on.

Often credited with transforming the industry forever, Stan The Man was an American comic book writer best known for his work with Marvel Comics. Today, Hot Toys proudly presents Stan Lee in the latest 1/6th scale collectible figure inspired by his cameo appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 as one of Toy Fair Exclusive items only available in selected markets.

The style of this figure is based off his appurtenance in the second GOTG film. I really like this costume style on him with the yellow space suit that has some great detailed weathering effects, a detachable space helmet, and a large backpack on the rear side.

The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the appearance of Stan Lee in the movie. Featuring a newly painted head sculpt with stunning likeness, a meticulously tailored costume featuring Stan Lee’s yellow space-suit in the movie, a pair of glasses, a specially designed rock-themed diorama figure stand with intricate stone details and a specially designed space backdrop with lenticular effect inspired by the movie scene when Rocket and Groot are Space-Traveling above Stan Lee and the Watchers!

The 1/6th scale Stan Lee® Collectible Figure specially features:

– Newly painted head sculpt with authentic and detailed likeness of Stan Lee in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
– Highly accurate facial expression with detailed wrinkles, moustache, and skin texture
– Body with over 30 points of articulations
– Approximately 31 cm tall
– Six (6) pieces of interchangeable yellow colored gloved hands including:
– One (1) pair of relaxed hands
– One (1) pair of opened hands
– One (1) pair of gesturing hands
– Each piece of head sculpt is specially hand-painted

Costume:
– One (1) finely crafted yellow space suit with sophisticatedly applied weathering effects, detachable helmet and life supporting backpack
– One (1) pair of yellow colored space suit pants with weathering effects
– One (1) pair of yellow and grey colored boots

Accessories:
– One (1) pair of framed sunglasses
– One (1) movie-inspired space themed backdrop
– Specially designed rock themed diorama figure stand with intricate stone details

Artists:
– Head Sculpted by Woo Chul, Ji

Overall this is a fantastic representation of Mr Lee with an incredible face sculpt and details. The space suit gives him a other worldly look which is fitting considering he created so many out of this world characters. Though the included accessories are a bit less compared to other Hot Toys I feel that they really did this version of Stan justice with an solid build, paint job, and soft goods. The additional lenticular background and space rock base/seat are great touches that help set up the scene we all remember from GOTG 2. Excelsior!
