Alice

You know what's an iconic movie? The answer is not Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D. That movie... oy. I could write a whole essay about Milla Jovovich and Paul W.S. Anderson's weird vanity series based loosely on a video game. They've done 5, met on the first movie then had a kid and got married. But all that's really important is that the people at Hot Toys put out a figure based on Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) from the aforementioned 3D movie.


This is my first Hot Toys figure that wasn't a nude base body I got on sale. Don't get me wrong, I picked it up on e-bay where I got a deal since the box was messed up and it was missing a few accessories (oh no, I only get 31 of the 35 accessories that I'd just put in a drawer anyway? And you'll shave off $20? Okay.)

The face is a pretty good likeness, and I really like the articulation, although I find that the rubber boots restrict some of the movement in the ankle joints, limiting some of the posing potential.


And this might be superficial, but for some reason I think the harness makes her look bulky.


One thing, although in these pictures you can see that the Alice face has a slightly open mouth, revealing two teeth, when you see it in person that isn't immediately visible. So it doesn't take away from the figure as much as one might think, although now that I see it, I can't help but see it in every close up picture I take. OH GOD, WHY WON'T IT STOP STARING AT ME?!

On my version the magnet holding the hair in place came off, so I've got to re-glue that. (The hair can be swapped out with another set of hair, hence the need for a magnet system to swap out. Other than the fact that the magnet came loose, I really like it as a system for the interchangeability.)

  1. I can't believe you actually got this! I have a bunch of the accessories for her that I got seperately for my 'Mercenary Tinkerbell' kick I was on a few months back. Most of those accessories ended up in a drawer too :)
