Adding to the year’s craveable assortment of superhero figures is the newly released Hot Toys Ant-Man on Flying Ant Miniature Collectible. Fans with a penchant for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s size-shifting, bug-borne crusader should find plenty to appreciate once they get the tiny figurine under their microscopes.
Measuring roughly 3.5 inches in length and with a wingspan of just under 4.5 inches, finding adequate display space for the Hot Toys Ant-Man on Flying Ant Miniature Collectible shouldn’t be much of an issue. Although its dimensions may pale in comparison to the larger Hot Toys sixth scale, Artist Mix, and Cosbaby movie figures (which include multiple Ant-Man variants as well as his diabolical nemesis, Yellow-Jacket), the diminutive piece stands as an eye-catching and display-worthy addition to the company’s line-up of Movie Masterpiece Series Compact collectibles. The sculpt and painted finish faithfully depict Scott Lang in his guise as the film’s titular hero atop his aptly named carpenter ant companion, Antony. For such a tiny figurine, the contours and colors of the iconic Ant-Man suit are well represented while the body and wings of his lifelike (albeit gargantuan) airborne steed deliver a satisfying level of detail. While the Hot Toys Ant-Man on Flying Ant Collectible offers little in the way of articulated posing options, it does come with a figure base with a translucent rod atop of which the duo of soaring Marvel heroes can be displayed and swiveled. The stand is emblazoned with the film’s logo which further accentuates the presentation.
The Hot Toys Ant-Man on Flying Ant Miniature Collectible released in early February (2016) at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $39.99 USD.
