Hot Toys’ GHOST RIDER Shows AGENTS OF SHIELD Some Action Figure Love

Although Agents of SHIELD was the first live-action series to spin-off from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it has given onscreen life to characters we never thought we’d see–Lash, Quake, Yo-Yo, Mr. Hyde, and the list goes on–it has never gotten much merchandise love. The only Marvel Legends action figures made to tie-in with the show were of characters seen in the movies first: Nick Fury, Phil Coulson, and Maria Hill.

In the most recent season, however, the show got its highest-profile guest star from the Marvel roster yet: Ghost Rider. And neither toy companies nor collectors can resist the siren call of a character who has a flaming skull for a head.

The Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider who appeared on the show took the curse upon himself in order to save his disabled brother, and through the course of the show he briefly passed it to others, including Agent Coulson. But in the end Reyes took it back, helping his onetime adversaries in SHIELD to defeat the dangerous Life Model Decoy Aida.

Hot Toys’ version features an LED light-up head, articulated jaw, and chains in both metallic and “red hot” color schemes. He’s also battle-ready with multiple hands and flames. While he is notably missing a Reyes head, astute fans have noticed that his neck post is also orange and translucent, and Hot Toys are too attentive to detail to display a human head on that.

It’s not clear which toy fairs he’ll be exclusive to, but we should find out very soon if San Diego Comic Con is one of them. And maybe if he sells well, we can finally get some more figures from the show: Agent May and Skye need to join our toy teams, like, yesterday.
