“We know each other.  He’s a friend from work.”

If you’re anything like your friendly neighborhood jman, you’re really looking forward to Marvel Studios’ Thor:  Ragnarok.  And Hot Toys new sixth scale Gladiator Thor figure is only fueling that anticipation.

Based on actor Chris Hemsworth portrayal of Thor in the upcoming feature film, the figure features an all new sculpt of Hemsworth complete with his bitchin new hair cut, beard, and red gladiator paint markings.

With over 30 points of articulation, the figure comes with movie accurate costuming including: a detachable shoulder cape, weathered gladiator armor and faux leather belt and black boots.  Of course, no Thor figure would be complete without Mjolnir.  But, since the mythical hammer is, shall we say, indisposed, Hot Toys is packing Gladiator Thor with a bunch of other groovy weapons like two swords, two daggers and a red and metal colored mace.  Thor also comes with a shield, helmet, several hands (in various states of openness) and a specially designed figure stand with nameplate and movie logo.
