Sometimes, I Like Dolls

Friday, July 15, 2011

Let's face it, a lot of people din't like Sucker Punch. I'll be honest, I had high expectations for the movie, and it kinda fell flat in most aspects. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it though. The story may have been wanting, but you have to admit the visuals were spectacular, the fight scenes more so, so that kinda served as a buffer for all the other not-so-good parts. Plus, I'm a huge fan of Emily Browning. I will not elaborate further lest I scare you, dear readers. All 3 of you.

When I first heard that Gentle Giant was releasing 18" statues of the Sucker Punch ladies, I thought about getting Babydoll. Unfortunately, they were pretty expensive. Also, they went out of stock almost immediately after they were announced. I thought that was that... until earlier this evening, when a friend of mine posted something on Google+ about new Sucker Punch figures by industry powerhouse Hot Toys. I saw some pictures of the Babydoll figure and they look absolutely posi-fucking-tively FANTASTIC. Even better than Gentle Giants' version, in my opinion.

A shitload of pictures (and some details) after the jump.




The Babydoll figure is approximately 28 cm (11") tall with over 30 points of articulation, interchangeable palms, costumes, and an assortment of accessories including her trademark pistol and katana. It is expected to come out late this year, although I haven't got a bead on the price yet. Hopefully it'll be cheaper than the $250 (about P10,750) price tag on the Gentle Giant statue.

I realize that me wanting this toy may come off as creepy to some people, but-- ah screw it. It IS creepy. Please don't judge me.
