Mattel Hot Wheels 1:50 "The Flintmobile"

The packaging is simple and it looks very nice.

Barney Rubble and Fred Flintstone are the two characters sitting in the flintmobile.

The overall paint job and sculpting of the toy are good.

It rolls very well.

Everything is made of plastic except the bottom part of the vehicle.

In my opinion, this is the best movie in 2014. I am going to watch it on Blu-ray tonight.

Art Figures "Dredd" Heavy Armoured Special Cop Pt.2

The facial sculpt especially the lower part of it resembles Karl Urban as Judge Dredd perfectly. It’s obvious that the skin texture is good with realistic paint job.

The leather boots are well replicated with great details and the Lawgiver pistol fits nicely in the holster.

As usual, weathering is applied to add realism to the accessories and outfit.

Dredd uses his wrist device to communicate with headquarters.

Although Dredd never removed his helmet in the movie, I am still happy that Art Figures releases removable helmets with the figures.

All joints are fairly tight and they can hold a variety of poses.

For Lawgiver pistol, you can choose displaying it with short barrel or long barrel.

The gloved hands have bendable fingers. But for realistic poses, I personally prefer those sculpted hands.

Left above is my favourite picture of this post :)

Dredd's outfit is amazing especially the stitching on the leather jacket and pants. The tactical vest with name plate looks movie accurate and all zippers work very well.

Look at the helmet with visor..It’s kind of clean to me as there are only scratches painted on the surface.

Besides helmet and pistol, the figure comes with two magazine holders, a smoke grenade with holder, an explosive mine with holder, a respirator in pouch, a belt with eagle designed buckle, a first aid kit, a foldable knife and three spare magazines.

Thanks to Benedict Choo for dry brushing with gold on the shoulder pads to match the colour of the name plate.

The respirator fits his face well but it drops easily when moving the figure.

Lastly, I highly recommend you to get the figure if you are a huge fan of Dredd 2012. This figure is value for money and the price range is not even close to Hot Toys. You may see its box package here.
