Re: Hot Toys Jake Sully Avatar review
Cheers for the great review! I actually thoroughly have enjoyed the movie every time I've watched it, in fact it was the 1st film in years that actually made me weep a little out of happiness and sadness! I've been putting off getting Jake for a bit now as he's closer to 300gbp than $300 over here but thanks to your review I think HT will get a chunk of my cash next payday!! There are a couple of things you pointed out that you didn't like but still work for me such as the expression, I can't remember him looking particularly aggressive in any part of the film in fact he spent most of the time wondering around like a stupefied toddler which I found quite endearing especially with Neytiri calling a stupid child most of the time!. As for the skin texture, well he's a bad carbon copy of an alien species in the film (has 5 fingers instead of the Pandorian 4, including the thumb) and to be honest your great photographs show some very nice skin texture so I'm a bit confused on that one. Thanks for the tips on the delicacy of the feathers and the belt snaps, the only downside I can think of is the problem with the Velcro on the knife sheath but since I hate the idea of Velcro on this figure I'll just remove it and attach it with a fine leather or waxed thread thong. I really hope they make a Neytiri as the SSC statue is the only other option.
pukingdog: What I like about your build threads, is that they start out like chaotic car wreck footage, which morphs into great figures. Your style is fearless.
