Incoming – Hot Toys 12″ Jack Sparrow (At World’s End)

8 08 2007

I share the same joy with many other collectors for holding out on buying the Medicom Jack Sparrow. Honestly, I was over the moon when I found Hot Toys announcing their own 12″ Jack Sparrow figure! Overpriced and dubious scale were some factors that I hesitated on the then seemingly excellent Medicom Jack Sparrow. But don’t be mistaken, it is still a good product… it’s just that I believe a similar product out of Hot Toys would be better. At least the scale would be 1/6.

And so it was that collectors have started putting both products together in side by side comparisons. Here’s an example from Shaun’s post. Draw your own conclusions. It looks DEFINITELY better! I recognised Johnny Depp faster in the Hot Toys figure even though it has somewhat a sleepy or drunk look to it. In fact, the inferior resemblance in the Medicom is now obvious.

Anyway, look to the review. Can’t wait to break it out!

This is really one awesome figure.
This is probably the most accurate/life-like figure I have ever seen.
Top quality!
