Medicom 1/6 "Jango Fett" Geonosis Version Pt.2


The face sculpt possesses very good likeness of Temuera Morrison as Jango Fett in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones.

Surprisingly, the colour scheme and design of the helmet are similar to the one in AOTC version.

Take a closer look at the head sculpt - the paint work is not up to Hot Toys standard. But, Medicom managed to capture the likeness of the actor.

The differences between Geonosis version and AOTC version are colour of the jumpsuit and design of the jetpack.

Nothing special about the jetpack and no gimmick in the metallic blasters.

Overall, I still consider this is a good figure as it's very articulated. The figure can hold a lot of great poses and it was released in 2011. Please click here to see its packaging.

Enterbay 1/6 "Jay Chou" World Tour Edition Ver. A Pt.2


Enterbay had captured the likeness of Jay Chou perfectly. This is the 1/6 scale official licensed figure and it was released in 2008.

For the outfit, it appeared in Jay's MTV "Cowboy on the Run 牛仔很忙" and the song is written and composed in his eighth studio album "On the Run! 我很忙".

Enterbay also did a great job in colour application on the head sculpt and everything looks realistic and natural.

Unfortunately, Jay's right leg is a little bit longer than his left leg. So, display stand is needed. His pair of cowboy boots are stiff and thus, no ankle articulation at all.

If Enterbay includes a guitar or a microphone with stand to the figure, that is definitely a plus point.

Besides a wristband, Jay wears his necklace with a rose shaped pendant. I am happy that the hat is made of velvet which makes it looks convincing. To see its box package, please click here.

Medicom 1/6 "Jango Fett" Attack of the Clones Ver. Pt.2


Medicom released the 1/6 scale Jango Fett in 2007. Jango Fett's clone and adopted son is Boba Fett.

The design of Jango's jetpack is similar to the one belongs to Boba Fett. The only difference is their colour schemes.

It's obvious that the helmet does not fit the head. That's why the lower part of the head is exposed. You can also remove the helmet from the figure.

Unlike Boba Fett, Jango carries two blasters with him. His plastic helmet and armour plates look metallic and realistic.

As the joint between the left leg and the hip is broken, I was not able to pose the figure during my photo shoot. Please click here if you want to see its box package.

Medicom 1/6 "Songokou" in Dragonball Z Pt.2


Look at the head sculpt, Medicom had nailed the likeness of Son Goku in Dragon Ball Z.

Medicom also developed a highly poseable body with muscular arms for this character.

The neck and shoulders are molded in one rubber piece to keep away from showing any joints.

I love how Medicom was attentive to detail as fabric was used to add realism to Goku's costume and even Goku's belt has wire to enhance his poses.

Due to the two piece design to Goku's boots, his ankles provide a wide range of movement. No stand is needed here.

As I was lazy to search for his extra hands in my toy room, I did not show Goku in his fighting poses. You may see its box art and design here.

Hot Toys 1/6 "Princess Leia" Bespin Version



The above is the standard packaging design by Hot Toys for its Star Wars toyline.

Besides an extra pair of hands, a display stand and a cloud city themed graphic card, there are no other accessories come with the figure.

The face sculpture has good likeness of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films.

Besides lifelike eyes, eyebrows and lips, the paint work on the facial skin is fantastic. Everything looks natural and realistic.

Leia's robe is unique with stand up collar decorated with printed graphic patterns and burgundy red lining. The bottom edge of her robe has wire which allows you to enhance her poses.

Take a closer look at Leia's braided hair and bun - it's really a detailed hair sculpture.

As the outfit does not restrict her articulation, you can get a lot of great poses from the figure.

Leia has tight joints and she can stand on its own feet. This is also my first Leia figure by Hot Toys.
