really awesome figure i must say..though its accessories are much lesser than most..particularly like the face mask and hat....

where'd you get from and for how much?

I bought from Falcon and the price is around S$140. You may go down to CSC and they are also selling at the same price..

Eh, Hot Toys' headsculpts are the best, even for the more moderately priced military figs. I don't know which actor HT is drawing inspiration from, but he reminds me of the psychic cop on Heroes. I really could've gone bonkers over 12" figures from Heroes during season 1. :P

Hi, i bought this hot toys ERT (male) figure jus weeks ago and while i am trying to pose the figurine, his right knee joint snaps and now i have a one legged ERT = ="
Is there any way to save the figurine? (I am a newbie collector,getting a new true type body will solve the prob for now, but i really doubt that is the best way to deal with this issue. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! ^^

Benji - To me, I will glue back the knee joint as this figure is not worth of buying another new nude body for replacement. Of coarse, we have to sacrify the pose ability of the broken joint. If you think this figure is worth for getting a replacement body, don't hesitate to buy it, bro :p

benji said...

Thanks for the reply bro. Since the purchase is only2 weeks old, I decided to gave them a call and they r willing to replace the figure for me. If the new body do "give way" again, i guess i will have to glue or drill the leg to make it more flexible. I pray my upcomin RE5 chris will last longer. The pain/love of owning a 12 inch is really going to taunt me down the road lol. Time to get a detolf glass-cabinet = = (Thanks again!)

If the shop owner is willing to replace your figure, it's not a worry anymore. Try to be more gentle when posing any 12inch figure in the future and this will minimise the incident of breaking the joints :)

Hi sorri to bother u again. Have u been to CSC U-toys before? I am thinking of getting some HOT TOYS figures from them. Their prices r pretty cheap, but i guess i need to ask around before making any purchase ^^

desmond said...

Yes Benji, the toys selling at U-Toys are normally cheaper. I always hang around CSC during lunch time because my office is nearby there. You may go to Invasions and look for David besides U-Toys. His price is also reasonable. Almost all the toy shops at 2nd floor are worth visiting. Reasonable!!

Thanks for the prompt reply. Their HOT TOYS prices(U-TOYS) r $40-$50 cheaper than what i can find from other stores, so my early concern is bootleg and stuff. Bootlegs r always a big issue for me. Guess i will go to their store and take a look. Thanks again! :)
