Hot Toys "Barney Ross" in The Expendables Pt.1


I love the over all graphic design of the slip case. It has a movie logo with title and name of the character printed in front. At the back, it shows an image of the movie character.

As for the box packaging, the back shows an image of the body tattoos with a list of production credit printed in white.

The front has a skull-patterned window that partially shows Barney Ross and his accessories within. There is another plastic tray that holds the alternate outfit of the figure.

Let's take a closer view of the head sculpt. I have no doubt the figure has a perfect likeness of "Sylvester Stallone" as Barney Ross in "The Expendables". Even if I have not done any review on this figure, I highly recommend to get him if you are a huge fan of Stallone :)

Stallone will be delighted to see a toy of him in his latest movie that make him look younger. Great character from a great movie that entertained me a lot. Nice sculpt and I like those cool tattoo design.

hehe, do a short review to poison me more bro :P

deSMOnd said...

Yes Dennis, the figure looks young and the most important thing to me is the likeness of the head sculpt. Besides realistic tattoos, those veins done on the forearms are so real and texture of the skin is top notch :)

Jason, I wish I can but recently I have been very heavily committed in term of work and my wedding preparation. I am also busy unpacking all my toys from cartons and categorise them with different poses so that they look nice in my shelves. Look forward to finish displaying them :)

Bro, good that you pre-ordered this figure too. If I can get Stallone's signature, this figure is definitely NOT FOR SALE anymore..Let's day dreaming now..Haha!!
