I hesitated on ordering this item as it's torso is made of rubber to simulate Hellboy's musculature, which means it may disintergrate over time...
But I went ahead anyway as I've always liked Hellboy's premise of a demon made good.
The preview pix made his face look rather long and I'm glad it isn't the case in the final product.
Hot Toys did a top notch take on his costume and accessories.
He comes with his weapons Big Baby & Samaritan as well as an extra pair of hands. The open palmed Right Hand of Doom has bendable fingers.
The bullets in Samaritan's barrel are removable...
...as it is with Big Baby.
The hammer on Big Baby is movable.
His torso sculpt differs from the other rubber body figure I own, which originates from an earlier PMC figure. The material feels the same and I hope it holds up as well as the PMC figure. Fingers crossed.
Of course, this also means that the upper body's articulation is restricted. Hot Toys has included an instruction sheet with graphics depicting the recommended range of movement to avoid damaging the body. Thankfully, the legs contain the usual True Type articulation, which means funky leg poses are possible.
Highly recommended for big fans of Hellboy, as you'll have to live with the limited articulation and possible eventual disintegration of the rubber parts on this figure. Will look damn cool on the shelf though.
