Review II: Hot Toys Dawn of Justice 1/6th scale Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman Collectible Figure

continued from previous toy blog post...

Here are more pictures of Hot Toys MMS359 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 1/6th scale Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman Collectible Figure with lots of close-ups to zoom in on the nice details that Hot Toys has so painstakingly put in to make this 12-inch figure look good. For me, there isn't a better looking Wonder Woman figure so far than this one by Hot Toys. The smaller sized action figures by other manufacturers such as Square Enix, Mezco, Medicom MAFEX etc just look like toys compared to this Hot Toys 1/6th scale Wonder Woman. By combining and using various materials to produce this figure, Hot Toys has created yet another movie masterpiece of museum quality.

Even though I say this is the better Wonder Woman so far, I wouldn't say it's the best. I have some issues with it. One of them is the painting of the teeth, making Gal Gadot look like Bugs Bunny with her buck teeth. And although Hot Toys took time to develop their own 1/6th scale female seamless body, its range of movement is rather limited, thus preventing collectors from putting Wonder Woman in more awesome poses. It also seems like Hot Toys female body has a rather long neck, making Wonder Woman look like Giraffe Gadot at certain angles. Phicen Limited (now called TBLeague) has already developed and released lots of seamless female bodies which are extremely flexible and can be posed in so many different ways. If only Hot Toys had used their bodies instead, then this figure would have been phenomenal.

Hot Toys MMS359 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 1:6th scale Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman Collectible Figure's costume consists of gold tiara, red-blue-and-gold armor, silver bracelets and red-and-gold boots. The shoulder strap holds her Lasso of Truth and Sword when she isn't using them. She also comes armed with her shield.

Check out the close-up shots of the Hot Toys Gal Gadot head sculpt.

Her sword has engravings on it. Not sure what it means. The silver bracelets are interchangeable with the gold translucent ones which are included. Her Lasso of Truth is made of wires which can be manipulated / posed with some twisting.

NEXT: Let's see how all three of them (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman) look standing together as a group.

Can the straps for the sword on her back be opened? That way you can store her shield there.

I haven't tried that. The shoulder strap had to be put on her and is then fastened at the back so it could work.
