    well if Hot Toys have a Disney deal then I'm sure they will be doing the next Star Wars movie figures.

    the only way I would have bought this is, was if the horns was removable and under it was rooted hair for miss jolie, but as it is for me this is an easy pass. kind of glad to be honest I have enough Hot Toys figures on pre-order. I need another one like I need a hole in the head, but for those who like this I am Happy.

    Re: Hot Toys – MMS247 – Maleficent: 1/6th scale Maleficent

    I really hate to say this but this is pretty disappointing. I was very excited for this figure but the lack of hands, no multi posed raven, and lack of accessories is killing it for me. I mean, no wings? Wasn't that a huge part of the movie? The dress also doesn't seem to meet the craftsmanship standards of a typical Hot Toys figure. It looks stiff and Barbie clothes-like instead of the flowing gown I would expect.
    I really hate to complain because I REALLY want to like this and buy one(the face looks great!) but I just can't justify it as it looks right now. Hope they come out with a deluxe version somewhere down the road.

    Wouldn't/shouldn't have expected wings for this based on the time-line of the character (ie: obviously AFTER the wings were cut off)......

    Don't know about the "lack of hands".....I see many pairs.....

    Agreed, the dress/gown looks below HT standards, most notably in the last photo....maybe a bad photo.....?

    I can't find anything to complain about here. It's a beautiful figure.

    Don't want to spoil anything but there is precedent for her to have her wings with this incarnation. And the hands are far less than what is usually included with other HT offerings. I also can't get over the hand that's grasping the staff. It looks stiff and unnatural. Kinda like a Barbie hand or something. Same can be said for the bird.

    I haven't seen the movie...so I am just judging the figure on it's on merit. the way it is now just does not do anything for me. The horns on the head makes the figure for me useless for anything else. Had she had a optional head without the horns...(I will assume she did not appear in the movie minus the horns) she would be so bought, but since she do not , I can't find any reason to buy this figure. For those who saw the movie and loved the character her you go!!!! Enjoy!!!!

    Nope. She went black because she lost her wings (cut off by the bozo).....she was brown with wings.....and had different horns....

    Did you see the movie? Again, I don't want to spoil it but there's a precedent and I don't mean the brown version. Her horns were also the same- just her head is wrapped in leather that goes partly up the horns. About 3/4ths of her horns are exposed in the black version.

    WOW! HT is really putting out figures to become SW Sith in my collection!! And a raven for my custom Crow figure to boot!

    He's right Mark, that scene at the end, what she's wearing is different.
    It's very similar, but it's a completely different outfit. So the scene where she confronts King Stefan, which is where HT decided to make the figure, the addition of wings wouldn't make sense.

    Haven't seen the movie... Yet! But aside from the head sculpt and the staff, I don't really see anything to justify what will no doubt be a $240 figure. I'm sure there are others that are very happy with it, and I say, Enjoy! I'll have to pass.

    Not just the non-removable horns but the wildly exaggerated cheekbones (which are true to the make-up in the movie) will disappoint anyone who might have liked to use a Hot Toys Angelina sculpt for any other purpose than Maleficent itself. Too bad. For the kind of use that I would make of it, I am not sure the Hot Toys @$225 would really give me much more than the Premium Maleficent in the Disney store $35 US or even the massmarket version @$25 (which also exists in a brown winged version), with me making some tweaks to the latter.

    Now very annoyed at myself that I never got the Sideshow Tim the Enchanter (John Cleese, Monty Python and the Holy Grail), because wouldn't these two just make a cute couple?

    I don't know about that but he does make a terrific donour figure, I believe mine is now part gladiator, part Templar Grand Master and Nadon (SW Hammerhead) has his staff! .
    Which are the Disney figures you're talking about? are they 1/6?

    Yes, they are 1/6. They are 11.5" meaning they don't seem to have the typical Playscale/Barbie reduction.

    Disney Store has this at $35 US: http://www.disneystore.com/maleficen...53953/1000259/ and here is a winged version [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Maleficent-11-5-Royal-Coronation-Collector/dp/B00J9APCFA/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_0_1[/ame] or this [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Disney-Royal-Coronation-Maleficent-Diaval/dp/B00K55NNT0/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_2_0[/ame]
    and here is the $20 "regular" movie Maleficent [ame]http://www.amazon.com/Maleficent-11-5-Dark-Beauty-Doll/dp/B00J9APGGA/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_0_0[/ame]


    Buy them all twice with the money you were going to give Hot Toys, and you''ll still have lunch money left over.

    BTW the Disney store offers those below (cartoon versions, some bash potential) often on sale as low as 2 for $15 US. Quick joke: when I was buying the dolls below the salesgirl asked me, "I see you like the Villains?" and I replied, "Excuse me - none of those allegations were ever proven in a Court of Law."
