Recently, Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys put out a terrifyingly awesome Carnage sixth-scale figure, showcasing the symbiote’s look in Venom: Let There Be Carnage. So it stands to reason that Carnage’s adversary Venom would get his own deluxe figure too. It’s his name in the title, after all. And now Sideshow and Hot Toys have just announced a Venom figure that puts all previous figures of the alien symbiote and “Lethal Protector” to shame.
Toy designer Studio HIVE skillfully crafted the greatly detailed collectible figure based on Venom, featuring a Venomized Eddie Brock head sculpt. As with most Hot Toys, the sculpt is a truly uncanny likeness to actor Tom Hardy. There’s also a creepily grinning head sculpt, and yet another head sculpt with a fanged mouth. Along with those sculpts, there are also three interchangeable protruding tongues. Not to mention, Venom comes with a specialized body measuring approximately 38cm tall, showcasing a high level of detailed sculpting on the skin texture.
Venom comes beautifully painted in black polarized paint, one that gives a natural shiny glow from different viewing angles. It also comes with several interchangeable symbiote weapons and accessories. Among them are a sickle, and a number of symbiote accessories with tentacles attachable to the figure’s back. There’s also a rod, many specially crafted hands for poses, and an action figure stand.
Venom’s newly painted head sculpts has a pair of piercing white eyes and sharp yellowish teeth. (No rave accessories from Venom’s big party scene, sadly. You’re just going to have to buy your own glow necklaces). This is the perfect companion figure for not only Carnage, but also Sideshow’s incredible “Venompool” Venom/Deadpool mash-up figure. You can pre-order this deluxe Venom sixth-scale figure by clicking here, for $440.00. The product’s expected shipping date is between January and March 2023.
