Hot Toys 1/6 "Wonder Woman" Movie Version Pt.2

To me, this is not the best head sculpt produced by Hot Toys. The resemblance to Gal Gadot is only 7 out of 10. Her slightly open mouth does not show the realistic teeth. But, the paint application on her face is superb.

As the manufacturer has applied gel to the hair, it's easier for collectors to style it for personal preference.

The skin color of the facial sculpt matches very well with the rest of the body.

Diana's shield is made of plastic and it was held by three straps that went over the forearms.

I like the design of the combat boots with right amount of weathering and realistic paint job.

Diana also wears shoulder harness to hold her sword and Lasso of Truth.

The plastic sword looks realistic and it has lots of carvings on the blade and hilt.

As Diana's costume is made of hard plastic, it's almost impossible to rotate her waist.

No support base is required here as Diana has tight joints. She can stand on her own.

While seamless body gives you a better representation of body shape and muscle, it restricts the overall articulation.

Anyway, I am pleased to have this figure in my collection and you may see its box art and design here.

Even figure received special hair treatment these days! Wow! Agreed on the facial sculpt having less resemblance and probably look closer to the actress from side view. Good idea not to have joint on the bare shoulder for better looks and realism. With less articulation, it seems more of a statue or complete figure than action figure. The weathering to the armor is well applied.
