Hot Toys Abigail Whistler from "Blade: Trinity" REVIEW II

We have seen how the box packaging and 12-inch female action figure of Hot Toys MMS128 (Movie Masterpiece Series) 1/6th scale Abigail Whistler Limited Edition Collectible Figurine from the "Blade: Trinity" movie looked like in the earlier post, now let's take a closer look at the accessories that are included with this fine figure.

Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel) carries a Smith & Wesson Model 686 Magnum revolver, which she nicknames "Lucky7" due to it's 7-shot capacity as her sidearm (a 686 with a 7-shot capacity is designated a Smith & Wesson 686 Plus).

Besides the 1/6 scale Smith & Wesson Model 686 Magnum revolver, Hot Toys Abigail Whistler Limited Edition Collectible Figure also comes with a regular bow (folded), right forearm gauntlet with retractable knife and another "retractable" blade (silver spike) that shoots out from her right shoe (sneaky gal, isn't she?)

Here's Hot Toys 1/6 scale Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel) 12-inch female action figure with her Smith & Wesson Model 686 Magnum revolver, "Lucky7". She has her gauntlet (with hidden retractable knife) on her right forearm and folded bow holstered on her left leg with gun holster on right hip.

Close-ups of the right forearm gauntlet, Smith & Wesson Model 686 Magnum and Jessica Biel headsculpt.

In the movie "Blade: Trinity", Jessica Biel is Abigail Whistler. OCCUPATION: Vampire Hunter / Slayer. KNOWN ASSOCIATES: The Nightstalkers

And now I'll show you how the retractable knife is released from the gauntlet strapped to her right forearm. You can see how the blade is ejected in the series of pictures shown below. It's a bit like the switchblade knife but mechanised and spring loaded in the film.

Here's another look at Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel) with her Magnum drawn.

Abigail Whistler's Magnum revolver is stored in a hip holster on her belt by her right hip.

A much closer view of the folded compound bow that Abigail Whistler keeps strapped on her left thigh in a custom-made holder.

The 1/6 scale folded compound bow cannot be unfolded so don't even attempt it. It says so on the Instruction sheet. Check out the nice details.

Here's a closer look at the Silver spike that shoots out from the toe of her right boot.

In the last post HERE, we'll examine Hot Toys Abigail Whistler's regular compound bow and ultraviolet arc (UV bow) as well as silver arrows with time-delay explosive tips. There's also a quiver of arrows slung on her back.

They did a good job capturing the actress' likeness. Pretty good looking overall. What's the MSRP?
