Incoming: Play Toy (Item No.: P008) 1/6th scale Athletics Girl 12-inch Female Collectible Figure

"May the odds be ever in your favor!"

The Hunger Games is a 2012 American science fiction adventure film directed by Gary Ross and based on the novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins. The story takes place in a dystopian post-apocalyptic future in the nation of Panem, where boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18 must take part in the Hunger Games, a televised annual event in which the "tributes" are required to fight to the death until there is one remaining who will be crowned the victor. Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) volunteers to take her younger sister's place in the games. Joined by her district's male tribute Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson), Katniss travels to the Capitol to train for the Hunger Games under the guidance of former victor Haymitch Abernathy (Harrelson).

This is Play Toy upcoming release: (Item No.: P008) 1/6th scale Athletics Girl 12-inch Female Collectible Figure. Product Details: 1/6 scale female head sculpt, 12-inch female body, One-piece Suit, boots, bow, arrows x 4, quiver, kneepads, pose-able Hands x 8, Figure display stand. She looks much better than the previously previewed Kumik 1/6th scale "Jenn" The Hunter in The Game (see the earlier toy blog post HERE).

I tell ya, Play toy and Very Cool sure have been cranking out some interesting stuff as of late. Hot Toys has got to be a little worried.

IMHO, Hottoys is still safe for now. Their sculpting and paint quality is still a head higher than Play Toy and Very Cool...but competition is always good for the end consumers...

IMHO, Hot Toys are over priced. I have regreted what I paid for what I got on them in the past so these new guys are getting all my money. I also like the subject matter better from the competition.

Don't disagree with that.. they are getting a bit pricey these days. I'm also being more selective on what I buy these days from HT. I suppose that is the price they have to charge to cover whatever royalty/license fee they have to pay, unlike PT and VC.

Hopefully, competition will bring HT's prices down and make it more affordable for us collectors. But i doubt that will happen unless they up their game on head sculpt and quality.

To each his own I suppose on the subject matter.
