Moon Knight Unleashes His Unique Brand of Justice at Hot Toys

A new Moon Knight action figure based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the character is on the way, courtesy of Hot Toys.

Hot Toys recently showcased the "screen-accurate" sixth scale collectible through Sideshow. According to the release, the Moon Knight figure boasts "a newly developed head sculpt with LED light-up function; wrapping bandages [that] are fully sculpted to capture his mystic appearance; a finely tailored Moon Knight costume consisting of armor[ed] parts [and] also [a] cape covered with ancient symbols and patterns, [and] fabric belt in addition to the sculpted boots."


The toy's accessories include 10 sets of interchangeable hands, replicas of Moon Knight's "signature crescent blades" in multiple different sizes, a crescent moon-themed backdrop, and a figure stand. The figure stand sports the Moon Knight series logo and a character nameplate.

News of the Hot Toys figure follows reports of two new Funko Pop! collectibles also intended to tie in with the Disney+ series. The first of these figures is inspired by the costume Moon Knight wore on the cover of Marvel Spotlight #28, his first-ever solo comic book appearance back in 1976. The second shares a more direct connection with the Moon Knight show itself, replicating the dapper look of Steven Grant's Mr. Knight persona to charming effect.

While both the Hot Toys and Funko Pop! Moon Knight toys are only available for pre-order at the moment, fans can get their hands on other merchandise connected to the show now -- and without spending a dime, either. Marvel Studios included a QR code in Moon Knight Episode 1, "The Goldfish Problem," that grants those who scan it access to a free copy of Werewolf by Night #32, Marc Spector/Moon Knight's first appearance. This is apparently only the first of several free comics the studio intends to share with fans over the course of Moon Knight's six-episode run.

There's no word yet on which titles will be featured next. However, one potential candidate is Universe X. Although the relatively obscure series seems like an odd choice, Moon Knight's head writer Jeremy Slater recently referenced the cover of Universe X #6 by artist Alex Ross as a key influence on the series. "Look at that thing. Tell me that’s not awesome," Slater tweeted, as part of a thread explaining how Ross' artwork inspired Moon Knight's supernatural take on its protagonist's costume.

Moon Knight is currently streaming on Disney+, with new episodes released on Wednesdays.
