Five Hot Toys Gentleman Plus a Majestic Studios Guest



I realized that I did not have any photos of my Hot Toys guys together. There are only five of them, but I thought, it would be pleasing to see them in one photograph. Usually, I have them with other figures. Today, I brought them together for a "family" shot and then added a figure from Majestic Studios. Can you guess the outsider?

The outsider stands out easily for me, but then I know his origins. But even if I didn't know his action figure pedigree, I could guess by his facial screening. Different companies have different face rendering. As I collect, I have learned the style of different companies so if I see a doll or action figure on a shelf, I can usually guess the manufacturer. I wouldn't confuse a Fashion Royalty doll with a Mattel doll or a YNU Group Mixis with a Get Set Club doll or a Susie with a Momoko.

Action figures, though, can be trickier. Bbi and Dragon figures are trickiest for me to distinguish. Hasbro Joes and Power Team guys though are easier.

Okay, I confess: I just wanted to photograph some HOT Hot Toys LOL.

I am sooo jealous! I really want a Terrance Howard doll but have not been able to find one. He is sooo cute and he is from this area! I saw him 4 years ago with his children in the Plymouth Meeting mall.

I like the other dolls too! I love see photos.

Them really hot! Not sure about one guy, though. He pales in comparison. Pun intended. Hehe.

D7ana said...

You chose right, Niel! The outsider is Mr. Bare Chest aka Majestic Studio's Commander Adama from the original Battlestar Galactica. And yes, he is very pale, especially in comparison to the Hot Toys guys :-)
