Saturday Toys Men's Clothes Series - Men Suit Set 01B

I was looking forward to this set when it was announced, and finally picked up one of the sets today.



Simple packaging, WYSIWYG.





The cut of the suit looks identical to the one from Saturday Toys' earlier Prison Wardrobe release. The material for the jacket feels similar but thinner cloth is used for the pants. The shoes come with laces, which is always a nice touch. Not shown are the white socks, which IMHO, should've been black instead.

Besides the obvious colour differences, the collar of the white shirt isn't as wide as that of the light blue shirt from the earlier Saturday Toys' suit.







Thankfully, the final headsculpt didn't differ too much from the promo pix...







...so the likeness of a certain actor is still intact.

The figure comes with a pair of glasses...



...and a handphone, in a different colourway from Subway's Contemporary Heroes 3W Detective.



As speculated earlier, the S1 body is similar to Subway's Contemporary Heroes 3W Detective, with some slight differences, which will be discussed in a later post.

Here's the figure with the nude body and head from Saturday Toys' US Marine Gear Set 2.0.



While the tailoring is of Saturday Toys' usual standards, the suit doesn't seem to hang well on the S1 body. Especially at the legs, which I find are too short, causing the trousers to bunch up at the cuffs. Pity that the suit doesn't fit well on the nude body they personally developed. Here's the figure with a Hot Toys True Type Caucasian (Relaunch Version) dressed up in Saturday Toys' Prison Wardrobe Suit.



I'd expect the suit to look better on a Hot Toys True Type, and will only do a switch when I can be bothered to fiddle with the jacket's buttons, which are easy to remove, but a biatch to fit back.

    That's a nice suit--something we need more of in the 1/6 world. The ones that came with the Talking Presidents figures were great.

    By the way, I think that head sculpt is supposed to be William Fichtner.

    Even before reading writinman's comment, I also thought that the sculpt looks like William fichtner in his FBI days in PrisonBreak. How much does this figure costs?

    If Hot Toys were to make a figure like this, they'll probably charge us for about US$90.00, although admittedly, the tailoring and headsculpt and articulation would be better.
