Kevin Feige wasn’t the first president of Marvel Studios, but he has gotten a lot of credit for the company’s long string of blockbuster hits. And deservedly so, as Feige has helped Marvel stay relatively true to its source material while catering to casual movie fans as well. Now, Feige has received one of the ultimate honors from Hot Toys: his own Marvel action figure!
Recently, Feige was at Hot Toys’ headquarters in Hong Kong to get a first-hand look at some of the upcoming Marvel statues and figures, including a life-sized Doctor Strange. As part of the occasion, Hot Toys presented Feige with a one-of-a-kind 1/6 action figure of himself, complete with its own packaging!
We’re not sure if Feige intends to leave himself “mint in the package,” but if he is so inclined, his action figure does come with a few accessories. There are apparently some inter-changeable hands, as well as a producers chair from Avengers: Age of Ultron, a clapperboard, and an Avengers stand.
According to Hot Toys’ Facebook page, “Mr. Feige was incredibly amazed and happy to receive this figure of him and was in awe of its stunning likeness and phenomenal details!” It is quite an impressive gesture from Hot Toys, and Feige definitely seems to be enthusiastic about it.
There may not be plans to make another copy of this figure, but we have to wonder if there would be fan interest in seeing it made alongside other important figures from Marvel’s film history, including Joss Whedon and Stan Lee. But if Hot Toys ever went that route, we’d suggest that legendary Marvel artists like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby would also be deserving of being immortalized as action figures.
