Venom has been reimagined in vinyl at the hands of INSTINCTOY and Hot Toys, which have produced a 34cm tall alien Symbiote figure which features five points of articulation. The model features a maneuverable head which has been sculpted to incorporate white eyes and sharp yellow teeth alongside a detailed skin texture and interchangeable facial expressions. Its wrists and ankles are also articulated.
The figure’s face can be switched between two iconic looks — a menacing teeth-baring grin or a long protruding tongue. The entire collectible has been painted by the artist Lok Ho, who has detailed veins, tendons and skin throughout the villain’s muscular black body. Reflective blue tones and white chest webbing complete the design.
The Hot Toys x Marvel Comics 80th Anniversary x INSTINCTOY Venom figure will release between late 2019 and early 2020. Take a look at the model in closer detail above.

Hot Toys continues to collaborate with different talented artists and designers to bring in more diversity to fans and collectors. Joining Hiroto Ohkubo for the first time, Hot Toys is very delighted today to present the mind-blowing creative work – Venom Artist Mix Figure Designed by INSTINCTOY to celebrate Marvel Comics 80th Anniversary! The character is a sentient alien Symbiote with an amorphous, liquid-like form, who requires a host, usually human, to bond with for its survival. After bonding with a human host, the Symbiote bestows its enhanced powers upon the host. When the Venom Symbiote bonds with a human, that new dual-life form usually refers to itself, in plural first person pronouns, as “Venom”. The vinyl-made Venom Artist Mix Figure is specially crafted based on the appearance of Venom in Marvel Comics. Measures approximately 34cm in height, the re-imagined figure portrays the ominous presence of Venom through his hulking physique, glossy black skin color scheme with reflective blue tones, distinctive web-like patterns in white stretched across his chest, two newly developed interchangeable heads sculpts including a grinning head sculpt and one with his signature long sprawling tongue. Designed to be a semi-articulated body with the ability to perform head, wrist and ankle movements. Available only in selected markets. Experience the dreaded feeling the web slinger feels whenever he meets the terrifying and aggressive villain! Reserve space for this truly impressive art piece for your Marvel Venom collection! #HotToys #ArtistMixCollection #Marvel #Venom #INSTINCTOY
