Let’s be honest here. There are only a handful of superhero movies out there where the main villain didn’t steal the show. One such character that stole scenes and hearts? The Asgardian trickster god, Loki. Without Tom Hiddleston around, the two Thor movies and the Avengers film might have been very different flicks in the end. And ol’ Loki is back, albeit in a much smaller package.
Based off of his appearance in the latest Midgard-produced movie, Thor: The Dark World, Loki Odinson comes with all the tricks of the trade that you’d expect in a mischief deity. Extra hands, daggers, a devilish smirk, proper clothing and mystical handcuffs.
And knowing just how many fans Loki has, I’m expecting those handcuffs to be put to some sort of sordid use. This isn’t the first Loki figure from Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles, but it does feature a brand new head sculpt which hits all the uncanny valley points.
Loki measures in at around 30 of our metric centimetres and a half, for a sixth scale representation. The price? A “never trust a god of mischief around your other action figures” $239.99, or close to R2640, minus shipping.
Still worth it though, because then my Thor figure will never be lonely. And I can finally film my sitcom, Thor ‘n Loki, and create wacky adventures and you folks better knock before you enter my room and find me dressing them up and I totally wasn’t playing weird games with these guys.
