Every year, Hot Toys distributes a catalog from their Secret Base location in Hong Kong. Inside, it shows all of the new licenses that they have acquired, the figures that have already been announced but have yet to be released, and finally some new collectibles as well! One Sixth Society took many hours and scanned each and every page of the new catalog for you! With that being said, let’s look at the Hot Toys Catalog 2017.
We’ll run through the Hot Toys Catalog chronologically, and right off the bat we have a lineup of the Guardians of Galaxy Vol. 2 team! We have Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon which have already been announced. Then we have Gamora and Drax which are to be expected, but also interestingly is a Baby Groot 1/6 scale figure. It will be interesting to see if we get a Baby Groot sixth scale figure, or if it refers to the one that will be coming with Rocket. Next up, we have some figures that have already been announced. We have Doctor Strange, as well as the highly sought after Hulkbuster Armor from the Avengers: Age of Ultron film joined by all of Captain America: Civil War characters. While these figures have already been announced, it is nice to see them shown as upcoming releases.

Hot Toys Catalog of Collectibles
Alongside the other Marvel characters, we also have a collectible that I am anxious to see; the Ironman armor that is opened at the back. After more Marvel characters, we are treated to a few of the licenses that Hot Toys has; Spiderman: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor Ragnarok, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Obviously we have seen two of these already, but it is exciting to know that we have figures from Thor Ragnarok and POTC on the way!
Next we get into Star Wars, namely collectibles from Rogue One. We have Jyn, Chirrut, and K-2SO, but we also have a photo of Baze. Many collectors are clamoring for Baze to go along with Chirrut, and this photo should give some hope. We also have Vader some troopers from Rogue One accompanied by an Assault Tank Commander that has not been formally announced yet. There are plenty of more Star Wars figures shown, with an appearance of Rey’s Speeder bike from The Force Awakens, as well as the Millennium Falcon cockpit. Time will tell if these large vehicles will be put up for order or stay forever inside the Hot Toys Catalog.

After Star Wars, we go into DC territory. We see all of the Suicide Squad and Batman V. Superman figures that we have already seen, accompanied by some Suicide Squad figures that have not been announced like Joker in the silver suit, as well as his henchmen. We also get a graphic of the Justice League, to the surprise of no one. Finally we get the Batmobile and Bat Signal from BVS, albeit with no release in sight.
After DC, we have miscellaneous licenses in the Hot Toys Catalog. The Resident Evil 6 figures have already been released, as well as the Alien Warrior. The Alien Warrior is shown alongside Ripley. Next we have the Back to the Future 2 Marty McFly with Doc Brown. With the pair of them is the Back to the Future 2 Delorean, which I know several collectors are very excited for. Last up we have the Cosbaby catalog which displays a variety of Cosbaby figures from all of the licenses previously mentioned, as well as a few more! A very interesting point is that there is a Cosbaby license for Aliens, of which there has not been any collectibles from Hot Toys in several years. Hopefully the Cosbabies are a sign of things to come. The Cosbaby Catalog can be seen here.

The Hot Toys – 2017 Catalog has a ton of collectibles on display for prospective consumers. While some of the things shown are not new, there are plenty of new things to pore over. It shows exciting things to come in 2017, and it should be expected that Hot Toys has plenty of other surprises in store.
