As part of their expansion into the designer/vinyl toy market, Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles have come together to create an Ant-Man Cosbaby Collectible set. Based on Marvel’s 2015 feature film, Ant-Man, the set features Scott Lang, Hank Pym and the dastardly evil Yellowjacket in all their stylized, deformed glory.
Created by David Michelinie and John Byrne, Scott Lang made his Marvel Comics debut in Avengers #181 (March 1979). An ex-con, Scott was hired by Stark Industries as an electronics specialist. In a move of desperation to help his sick daughter, Lang would steal the Ant-Man suit from the long since retired Hank Pym. Hijinks would ensue. Pym would eventually allow Lang to keep the suit, thereby assuming the mantle of Ant-Man.
Hot Toys Ant-Man Cosbaby set features stylized versions of the characters from the film. Each figure measures 3.75 inches in height. And while the figures aren’t articulate, they do have bobble heads. The quality and attention to detail that Hot Toys is known for, is all there. Like the helmet on Darren Cross’s Yellowjacket figure. It features translucent, yellow lenses over the Yellowjacket mask. Decked out in the character’s trademark yellow and black suit, the Cosbaby figure also has Cross’ backpack with two stingers ready to, well…sting?!?!
The Scott Lang Ant-Man features the figure in the red, dark grey and silver costume. The oversized helmet is painted a metallic silver and has translucent red lenses.
Finally, there’s the Hank Pym “Black Out” Ant-Man figure. Basically a repaint of the Scott Lang figure, the helmet (and costume) on the Pym figure is painted in a matte black. Hank’s helmet is also minus the translucent, red lenses of the Lang figure. The Hank Pym “Black Out” figure is only available as part of this collector set.
Unfortunately, though, the Ant-Man Collectible set is sold out. However, Scott Lang and Yellowjacket are still available for purchase, individually. They retail for $15.99 and are available right now for purchase on Sideshow Collectibles website. Fans of cosbaby or designer/vinyl toys are gonna want to check these figures out.

Many thanks to the good folks at Sideshow Collectibles for providing the figures for review.
