“Hey! I’ve got so many more stories to tell.” An evocative phrase from one of Stan Lee's most successful cameos.
The iconic creator of Marvel’s comics, Stan Lee, used to happily sneaking into the movies of the license. This is called a cameo. And Hot Toys takes the opportunity by making a very realistic figure of the one from the Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2.
Remember, it was this suspended moment during which we see Stan Lee sitting in a yellow cosmonaut suit surrounded by aliens, who are none other than the Guardians, witnesses of historical facts within the galaxy. He tells them what is happening on Earth with a disconcerting naturalness. Directed a year and a half before his death, this cameo has a special flavor and a surprising format: it’s cut in two parts between this moment and one of the post-generic scenes, making a real running gag.
Back to Hot Toys. To create this figure, the Chinese manufacturer did not skimp on details. Hyperrealist, the 1/6the scale reproduces the elements from the scene with one more : Stan Lee’s face displays a broad smile. We are amazed by the appearance of the skin and the precision given to its legendary mustache. Side accessories count interchangeable gloved hands, a yellow and very cool backpack, the rock on which he sits and his detachable space helmet. Obviously Stan Lee, would not be Stan Lee without his lightly smoked glasses…
So Hot Toys adds them ans realises a master stroke by capitalizing on the famous creator of one of the most transgenerational licenses in the world.
Presented at the Toy Fair 2019, this exclusive figurine will be soon available in a few stores. More informations soon.
