    Arnie's body is nice.. Great how the arms are independent to the body.

    That Dutch headsculpt is gonna fetch a pretty penny, it's already at $40 with 5 days left.

    I like it that Dutch's muscle body has better sculpt. Notice how the arms looks better than Bill's one piece muscle body.

    wow they actually sculpted Arnie's body in 1/6 scale....compare this to an Arnold 80's beefcake pic and its uncanny.

    I'm confused why would hot toys have a different body for billy, clearly dutch body would have more articulation?

    Not to be a hater here, but considering the quality of Dutchs' headsculpt, the Billy one sucks. The straight on shot he looks like a girl. I know they don't have approval for his likeness but the whole sculpt just doesn't look up to HT's standards.

    Re: Hot Toys Dutch & Billy Photo Review ( Indirect Via Ebay)

    For the price I would be paying I would like them more screen accurate. Definately these figures will need more work to make them screen accurate (if all possible, especially with the rifles since they were using a hybrid of the A1/A2 models ie. carrying handle of an A1 with handguards of an A2). Desert Eagle would've been better than using a remold of an M1911A1 that they probably had already. Agree with FET on this, lots of remold/reused items from previous releases on this one: M16A2 Rifle w/ M203, Knifes, sidearm, and boots. Like the shoulder holster although and the machetes. Still for the price the weapons would've been done better than using rehashes.

    I'm loving the look of these. The specially molded Arnie body is brilliant to make him look beefier than Billy, Scupts are good too..Arnie one being outstanding!

    Re: Hot Toys Dutch & Billy Photo Review ( Indirect Via Ebay)

    Overall they look great but I have to agree that for the price they could have been more screen acurate with there weapons. I'm still picking Arnie up. I would have picked up billy but the head sculpt is so dissapointing. They should have gone with someone else.
    Here's an idea; someone may do or comission someone to do an accurate billy head sculpt.

    By the way thanks for all of the picks.

    I'm betting that if you strip the paint off of that Billy headsculpt,that Sonny Landham is under there

    Re: Hot Toys Dutch & Billy Photo Review ( Indirect Via Ebay)

    Billy's body looks like the old HT Rambo/Rocky muscle body. But in some of the preview pics, Billy's bod had the new style Arnold cut shoulders. Why the change??

    Its interesting to see the RE5 figures loaded with new weapons or new variations (AK stock) of reused weapons and these two highly anticipated cash cows are given this sort of treatment. Arnold is a $150 figure for .... sake.

    ...Humm, kind of glad I never tried to pony up the dough for these now. Kind of underwhelmed here, though I'm sure that the Predator creature itself will deliver. I really think they should have modded the standard muscle body to have shoulder articulation.

    Anyone else wonder if the Chris body will be the same as Ahnuld's?

    I think it would have been a better photo review if you actually had the stuff in hand,took your own pics, and could make personal observations about the gear,sculpts and bodies yourself.

    Hot toys is going green with all the recycling it is doing with these figures.

    Hmmm,

    Comedy tache aside, Dutch looks rather good, on the other hand, Billy looks like Kathy Bates! What were they thinking!?

    I like the Chris Redfield better and he looks a lot like Mark Blucas when he was Riley in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

    CHEERS!

    Pistols are wrong. So much wrong and so little right. Good base to start with but gonna need some work. The work is fun but shouldn't be required at these price points.

    Dutch and Billy have removable carry handles on their rifles which wasn't in the film, etc.

    Billy's armor looks like a remod of the HT Marine Drake armor

    Boots look like rehash from HT Colonial Marine beet

    Non machete knives are rehash of Rambo knives

    Gloved hands look like rehash of HT VN Gunner gloved hands

    That is a really nice shoulder rig that Billy has, etc

    I bet Billy wouldn't have faced the predator with that!

    Look pretty damn good in general. Dutch's sculpt is awesome. Billy's is ho-hum. Way overboard on the camo. Sucks they didn't use M16A1's.

    Great HS on Arnie.

    I think he'd be personally offended by the legs though; symmetry was important with him, this is a bit asymmetrical... lol..

    Finally I have a little time to open mine. Man this thing is just beautiful. Limited movement though. But that is what I can live with. I do change the grenade to Soldier Story's, much better.
