Can A 13″ Sculpture Of A 75-Year Old Man Be Called An Action Figure?

The company called Hot Toys make just that… hot toys. I came across a 13″ Agent Coulson figure on eBay and bit on it early only to drop out at $25.00. It ended up going for $181.00. Every other Hot Toy figure I saw on eBay was in the $150.00 and up range. So these guys are doing something right.

I came across this on-line:

Now I love the Dark Knight movie and I think Michael Caine is an amazing actor, but you have to be a very dedicated collector to want to spend that kind of money and an action figure for a 75-year old man (he’s 80 now).

I got these images off of their facebook page¬†and no purchasing details have been released yet. I’m not sure if you can buy Alfred separately or only with the Batman Armory and if there is a jumbo option that includes Bruce Wayne. I’m sure that information will come along soon enough… and as I most likely will not be tracking down one of these for myself, I will admit that is one damn find sculpting job. You can almost hear him say, “Some folks just want to watch the world burn.”
