Hot Toys - 300

Post by Artistix on Thu Nov 26, 2009 5:06 am

I may seem like a bit of a perv, as a human I figure it is my God given right! Laughing

300 to me was a chance to get a really good line of realistic He-man looking guys (not to mention some great ladies), & I was rather upset when Neca did not make it past their first assortment.

So now we have a really amazing company grabbing the license, & I'm very curious to see how they turn out.

I belive Hot Toys use those rubber body suits? they don't bend very well do they? can they hold any kind of pose?

it depends on the figure, but Hot Toys are the leaders IMO when it comes to 6th scale figures. cheack out images and reviews of the hellboy figure they did, that has the rubber suit, as does the dutch figure from the predator line.

I still need to pick up their Bank Robber and 3rd release Joker figures one day... But yeah, Hot Toys do amazing things in the 12inch scale, so it'll be interesting to see how these turn out.

Wow! That really does look awesome.

I'd imagine I'll be far too scared to put him in some of those poses & risk tearing the body suit.

I wonder if Xerxes would be in scale?

Very cool looking. But I'd have serious concerns about how long the rubber flesh suit would last, especially with Australian weather.

Iron Man would still be my most wanted Hot Toys product, but their King Leonidas is definitely cool looking.

Cheers.

Got hb today, will post pics soon, but Art you're right, very limited in his poses, feels like the rubber flesh suit could tear at any time, great looking figure though, high high detail!

Of course they don't just have to stand there.



Why is this in a 300 thread anyway?

Okay, fair enough, I can see that.

I think my picture addressed that they can hold a pose. Not sure if yours did though, it looks to be just standing there, so I wasn't sure why you posted it, that's all.

Just to be clear, I did not post that pic.

And I believe DBF simply posted that image so we would have a good visual of a Hot Toys body suit, I certainly wouldn't ask him to try try posing it! but it's awesome to see in your pic creecher that it is possible.

In my original post in this thread I asked about the durability/poseability of the HT body suits, hence why talk of other (non 300) HT lines is pretty much essential.

Besides, I don't think we are get in too much trouble for Off Topic posts around here...as long as it's nothing too crazy! monkey dancer Razz

And your pic shows that the bottom half can be posed no worries, but again the topic was about the body suits, your pic has no more been posed than mine.....

GAH!

My Leonidas took a tumble off the TV last night. His foot snapped off.

I could have cried.

However he does still stand & look fine with the aid of his display base....which, if I had used it from the get go, would have prevented this from happening.

Hope we see more Spartans in this line. Not really interested in anyone else. Xerxes would be awesome, but would need to be about 15" tall to be in scale!
