Hot Toys releases a first look at their Peacemaker sixth-scale figure, which includes his sidekick, Eagly. Peacemaker is the DC Comics character made famous in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad last summer and now in the spinoff show on HBO Max. Played by actor John Cena, Peacemaker is the central character in the new show, which has been a powerhouse for the streamer; the finale alone broke the record for the biggest single-day release for an HBO Max Original series.
The Peacemaker series was written by James Gunn while in quarantine during the filming of The Suicide Squad, which was later greenlit by HBO Max. Gunn also directed a number of episodes for the show, which co-starred Leota Adebayo, Freddie Stroma, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, Robert Patrick, and Chukwudi Iwuji. Peacemaker was renewed for season 2 just ahead of the finale, which will find Gunn even more hands-on while he continues to develop other shows for the streamer.

Now, Hot Toys jumps on the hype train for Peacemaker, releasing a first look at their upcoming sixth-scale figure, which has a number of unique features and accessories that fit the mold of the character. The figure comes with two helmets, an axe, a sword, his signature long-barreled pistol, and a uniquely tailored costume. Created in the likeness of Cena, the figure also comes with a detachable tongue to change up Peacemaker’s “ready-to-rock” facial expressions. Finally, the figure will come with Peacemaker’s trusty sidekick, the Bald Eagle known simply as Eagly, complete with spreadable wings. Check out the announcement post below with multiple images of the figure:
While Peacemaker has been a tremendous success for HBO Max, with both Gunn and Cena being the catalysts, the creators have a full dance card before they can return for another season of the show. Gunn is currently shooting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for Marvel Studios (and just wrapped the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special as well), while Cena just finished work on Matthew Vaughn’s spy thriller Argylle with Henry Cavill and is currently filming the action flick Freelance for director Pierre Morel (Taken). Gunn also wrote the screenplay for the Looney Tunes movie Wile E. Coyote, which Cena is slated to star in, so the duo appear to have formed a strong working relationship since The Suicide Squad debuted.
With Peacemaker’s massive popularity, it only seemed like a matter of time before the titular antihero got the Hot Toys treatment, and rightfully so. It’s been a strange turn of events for a character that began as mostly “a joke” but has since become something much bigger than anticipated. Initially, Peacemaker was supposed to be killed off in The Suicide Squad, but Gunn found a sneaky way to revive him in the post-credits, which seems to have been a very smart move given the success of the series. Now, fans can have their very own peace-slaying sixth-scale Peacemaker in a hyper-detailed Hot Toys figure to celebrate this wildly violent, crude, heartfelt, and twisted character who has become a household name in a very short span of time.
