The Rebel commented: “I love my unofficial title, precisely because I have earned it.” Brilliant dialogue frm Tarantino!!! This figure deserves to be picked up! (didn't show up like it should)

Bro, I think the likeness is not close to the real actor...

Any idea of how much it'll be?

The Falcon's Hangar has it for pre-order at SGD185 (that's in Singapore dollars). Check out the link:

The head likeness is poor this time probably HT's artists did not select the apppropriate photos from which the sculpting was based. In most shots of the movie, Christ Waltz has a cunning smiling face with his mouth's corners slightly moving upwards, which is the signature facial expression of the character in the story. However, HT inappropriately based their sculpture on a more "serious" facial expression of the character, not being able to portray the signature expression of Hans Landa in the movie. Perhaps the artists did not watch the movie and hence couldn't correctly capture the "essence" of the "Hunter". The facial expression of Dragon's figure on the same character (available for pre-order about 6 months ago) is much better than this one although the skin texture is inferior to HT's. I am a fan of QT (the director) and Chris Waltz but have to skip this one because of the poor likeness ! Disappointed !
