    Uhm, it looks great.......The new generation of HT figures are soo good they don't require a repaint.

    I'm in need of a repaint though.

    Product released now?


    ShiGuangYu, do you have comparison pic for Will Tunner and Jack Sparrow or other HT male figure?

    I know HT Elizabeth is abit shorter than any HT male.

    Thank you. I'm gonna cancel this preorder if Will turn out to be a giant.

    Well, with out taking them out of the package, I just compared Jack to Elizibeth and Jack appears to be about the same height as Will is in the pics. The top of Elizibeth's head is about eye level to Jack so they should be the about the same height.

    Wow, add another pirate hat on his head and he's a giant.

    I dun remember Will Turner aka Legolas/Orlando Bloom to be that tall in LOTR.

    He must have ate a lot of calcium after filming LOTR.

    Does Will have a bendy rubber torso? The neck seems to blend flawlessly into the upper body. This also seems to be the case with the upcoming James Dean figure. Have Hot Toys perhaps introduced a new body with a hidden collar joint for their figures with exposed necks/chests?

    Simple solution, put the Will head on a Jack style body, won't that sort it? It's one of the best factory HS's I've seen in a long time.

    CHEERS!

    If Hot Toys aren't using some tall body, Will's height could very well be due to a higher location of the foot socket inside the boot. Regardless, it's a beautiful figure and I'll be picking it up in Hong Kong this weekend.

    Will Turner sure looks huge..

    Even if Orlando is 5'11 and Jack is 5'9, the differences shouldn't be so obvious,right? I think i will just have to switch out the body for Will but i must say he is one good looking piece from HT, other than the height..

    Wonder what would be the height of Davey Jones..

    Again if the height difference is due to the boots and not the bodies, then switching bodies will be pointless. We'll find out soon enough I'm sure.

    Pirate vs Predators

    Just keep Will away from any HT Predators and he won't be visually so big. Personally, it bugs me when every character in my collection is the same height. Pirates would be a cool visual display. I hope Davy is the biggest, at least as tall as Will

    Will Turner uses the new Hot Toys body, which basically doesnt have a seperate neck piece like Jack Sparrow.
    I stripped both figures of their clothings just to confirm that the only difference was the neck.
    See for yourself


    The height difference is rather obvious and I am abit disappointed that Hot Toys failed to notice this problem


    Anyway, Will Turner was very VERY depressed. Cos Elizabeth was too short and fat or rather, Hot Toys made him too tall.
    There was simply no way that he could hug her n kiss her like he did in the movie.

    So, he went for the next best person available.




    Will Turner: Jack, I have something to tell u.

    Jack Sparrow: Say no more... Will MMMmm..mmmuackz.....


    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :rotfl :omg :o
    Hope u all had a good laugh...hehe
    Sorry, I had to do it, too much stress from work n studies :P

    So it's not a bendy-neck? He just has zero lower neck/upper chest articulation?

    (That last picture made me laugh. My boss almost saw them on my screen too, that could have been an awkward explanation...)

    "Man-doll"! Now I get it! We know excatly what kind of 'action' these figures were built for.

    I'll be giving myself the Clockwork Orange treatment with ESPN for next fifty hours now.

    Judging by that pic, Will definitely has a 'stiff neck'. Huh? Get it?
