To the critical whiners who say that "this" sculpt sucks, and "that" sculpt doesn't look like who it's supposed to look like-- to you all-- I say thee nay! (To quote the God of Thunder.)
This right here? This looks like a friggin' shrunk down Bruce Willis. Look at that squint and that shit-eating grin. That is Bruce Freaking Willis, my friends. (Now my only question is: why doesn't my beloved Indy look this good! Why, God!? Why!?!)
I'm a life-long GI Joe fan. A hard-core Joe-Head. GI Joe, in my opinion (it's my blog after all, who else's opinion is it gonna be?!) is the best toy line of all time. And.... I never saw this movie. I will watch it when it comes on Blu-Ray, but the last one was so damned blasphemous to my beloved Joe, and I'd heard that this one wasn't much better, that I just couldn't bring myself to see it. I feel like I know how I want to see Joe done on the big screen, and let's just say that it doesn't involve Bruce Willis or "The Rock" being anywhere near it. Did you see Zero Dark 30? Remember the last 15 minutes? Hello GI Joe. But we aren't ever gonna get that, because we can only get movies based on a toy line that's sole purpose is to sell more of those toys, and that is exactly what we got earlier this summer. ...oh, well.
Getting back to the figure (finally, right?), this will be another "Toy Fairs" Exclusive, just like the recently announced Captain America. What does that mean? Well, it might not mean much., or it might mean a lot.
In most cases, Sideshow will get any and every "exclusive" that Hot Toys offers. But, there's always a chance that they may not, although it's unlikely. I'd expect to see more on these "Toy Fair" (aka Convention) Exclusives direct from Sideshow any day now.
BRUCE. FREAKIN'. WILLIS. NO DOUBT!
