Incoming – Sideshow 12″ Faramir

14 08 2007

My recent slew of Hot Toys acquisitions have seen me struggling to pull Sideshow’s 12″ Faramir out for a review. Somehow, Hot Toys products are just so much more fun to fiddle with. Anyway, Sideshow’s Boromir was a really good product surprisingly although there were doubts about its sculpt when the promo pics were first released. Well, this trend seems to run in Denethor’s family as we observed that Faramir’s sculpt doesn’t really resemble David Wenham. Resemblance these days have a pretty high standard… all thanks to Hot Toys’ Jack Sparrow!

Bolstered by the fun I had reviewing Boromir, I just had to get the other brother. Although not the apple of his father’s eye, Faramir was a skilled warrior who commanded the respect of Gondor. Captain of the elite Rangers of Ithilien during the War of the Ring, Faramir was no softie(as the movies might have portrayed him) when compared to Boromir. Very impressive resume, let’s see if the Sideshow figure holds similar promise in the review ahead!
