Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell is an important character on Prison Break. Enterbay has done a great job for this figure as the head sculpt resembles Robert Knepper perfectly. Besides sculpting, the skin texture and colour application on the face are top notch.
The dagger is made of metal which has certain level of detail on its handle.
T-Bag comes with 2 sets of outfit. They are prisoner uniform and casual outfit. The above is the casual outfit T-Bag wore after escaping Fox River (Season 2).
As there is no paint work done on the neck extends to the upper torso, the skin colour between the face and neck is different.
Enterbay is also attentive to detail as they have used their slim type body for this character to replicate the actor's body size.
I like the pink striped shirt and it is well tailored to fit the figure.
As the jeans fit close to the legs, they limit the lower body articulation.
The sculpted boots look great but they restrict the ankle movement.
T-Bag can't hold a lot of great poses as he has weak ankle joints. A figure stand is required for some poses. Despite the issues as mentioned, I am still happy to own this figure as it has perfect likeness to Robert Knepper. You may see the box packaging here.

TTL has done an amazing job on the head sculpt as it possesses great likeness to William Fichtner, an American actor who has appeared in a number of films and TV series.
William is popular for one of his roles as Alexander Mahone, a FBI Special Agent in Season 2 of Prison Break.
Besides the life-like eyes, everything is well sculpted especially the wrinkles. They look very natural.
The hair also looks real as TTL has applied some colour tone on it.
The shotgun is the only accessory comes with the figure and it is nothing special.
In Season 2 of Prison Break, Mahone's primary weapon is his Glock 19 pistol. The above shotgun is similar to what William used as bank manager on The Dark Knight (film).
For the business attire, it fits the figure well and does not restrict the overall articulation.
But, the figure has "weird" shoulder joints. They restrict the movement of both arms.
Mahone's legs are weak and thus, he can't hold his action poses for too long.
Overall, I am still happy to get this figure as Mahone is one of the important characters on Prison Break. You may see the box packaging here.

Comparing to Michael Scofield figure, the head sculpt has great likeness to Dominic Purcell as Lincoln Burrows on Prison Break.
In the plot, Lincoln was being set up for the murder of the Vice President's brother. Lincoln's brother, Michael Scofield then planned to help him escape from prison.
As the black leather-like jacket has been deteriorated, I replace it with the denim jacket by Did Corporation.
Besides realistic skin colour, every facial feature was beautifully sculpted with very good paint job.
The denim jacket matches very well with Lincoln's white top and faded jeans.
Lincoln's pair of faded jeans is soft and they look so real.
Obviously, Lincoln's casual attire does not restrict his action poses.
No extra hands were given to Lincoln and thus, very limited dynamic poses you can get from him.
Lincoln has pretty tight joints and has no issue to stand on his own feet.
Besides great sculpting, Hot Toys has captured the actor's facial expression accurately.
The pistol is the only accessory comes with Lincoln and it fits in his hand. For the box art and design, please see here and here.
