Hot Toys 1/6 "Finn & First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper" in TFA Pt.2

As mentioned in my first review, the face sculpt resembles John Boyega pretty well.

Great weathering done on the outfit especially the pilot jacket.

To avoid missing the bombs, I put them in Finn's bag.

Besides adding "height" to the figure, I believe the transparent parts also enhance better articulation.

The design of the pistol grip hand is bad as it cannot hold the blaster firmly.

The BlasTech EL-16 blaster with sling is a weapon which Han Solo gave it to Finn.

Although Finn's head is a little bit over-sized, he still looks cool in his pilot jacket.

The skin colour matches very well from head to neck and hands.

As usual, texture of the skin looks natural and realistic.

All joints are tight except the right thigh to the hip.

As the material of the pilot jacket is soft, it does not restrict the body movements at all.

No problem for rotation of the head but it's hard to move the head facing down.

Took more pictures of Finn wielding Luke's lightsaber.

A close-up shot of Finn holding the lightsaber (right above).

Overall, I was pleased to have Finn in my collection and it looks great with Kylo Ren on the shelf.

ThreeZero 1/6 "Rick Grimes" in The Walking Dead Pt.2

Although the likeness of the head sculpt needs improvement, the paint work on the beard, hair and eyebrows is great.

The wrinkles on the forehead and those around the eyes look natural. Skin texture and skin tone are equally realistic.

The machete is made of plastic and it fits nicely in the sheath which is attached to the left side of the belt.

You can find three pouches attach to the back of the belt. Two of them hold speedloaders.

What?!! The magazine is not removable from the AK machine gun. This is not acceptable. Even those small factories can produce that. Why can't ThreeZero do so?

I like Rick's cowboy boots as they are well sculpted and weathered.

Overall, Rick's outfit looks dirty. His jeans were beautifully faded and torn.

Took some pictures of Rick wielding his machete to kill walkers :)

Surprisingly, the pistol has a swing-out cylinder which reveals its fully loaded chambers.

Talking about Rick's favourite weapon, it's definitely Colt Python. He has been carried it since Season 1.

As the figure has pretty tight joints, you do not need to use any display stand for basic poses. Please click here if you want to see its packaging.
