So for all of you guys who were clamouring for a Davy Jones, check out the Hot Toys website: http://www.hottoys.com.hk/



It looks absolutely fantastic. I, who wasn't going to bother with this figure, am definitely getting it.

Now for Barbossa and hopefully a Spinetti and his mate!

Nice find! He looks great. I'm not surprised to see nothing that's made out of cloth, looks like it'll be akin to HT Alien figures.

This figure is unbelievable looking... I'm guessing even though there are 20 POA, he's gonna be a fairly restricted figure. I just can't see much poseability with the thick coat and the limitations of his design. But either way, this figure looks amazing and is a must-have!

Nice, but I'm going to be as mindlessly critical as the SSC critics.

I'd like to see more differentiation in texture. It's obviously all molded plastic, but the screen character had slimy seaweek, rough coral, ragged cloth, etc. This kind of looks no better than the 12" NECA.

lerath666
01-18-2008, 07:10 PM
Yeah, I would of prefered a cloth outfit, with molded coral and other things attached to it. but if it's all flexable rubber, then I can live with it.

My thoughts as well.

A 1:6 body over a molded plastic shell is lame.

The sculpt and accessories are nice but this figure isn't worth the average Hot Toys price.

galactiboy
01-18-2008, 07:16 PM
I'll disagree on that its not worth it, but I I do think fabric that had been coated would probably look better. I think this is definitely the best Davy I've seen in the scale... but it is possible he might be a bit too shiny overall.

I agree. The Neca sculpt is just as good. On the shelf you will have saved yourself $100.

The textures will be better on the Hot Toys one, having a mixture of plastic and silicon. It will have more articulation. Be able to hold a cane and a sword, have some added extra accessories, the pipe, chest, heart, cane/sword, keys. I would think it will loose lower body articulation, cause he'll probably only be able to stand. So basically it will look the same as Neca's. From Hot Toy$ pics, it's great eye candy.

I am more than pleased with Hot Toys representation with the figure. I know there will be limited articulation and no cloth in the figure may make it more "toy" like, but I really dont see how HT could have done it any other way. Given the design of the character I dont know how you could translate it to 1/6 any better.

That said, it does look a lot like the Neca figure, but in person will be undoubtedly better.

Sachiel

The HT head sculpt looks like the movie.

01-18-2008, 09:34 PM
He looks awesome, wow! Unlike Neca's, it actually looks like him. But, I'm content with the 16" Disney Excl which also looks like him.....i'm holding out for Barbossa and Tia Dalma, all I want. Though I might get that Cannibal Jack, we'll see, but Tia and Barbossa are where its at and at the top of my want list.

01-20-2008, 11:05 PM
I wish his outfit wasn't all rubber/plastic, but considering all the detail and all the sea-life growth on his clothes on top of the fact this is a mass-produced figure I can understand that ultimately it may have been cheaper to go this route for both the company and for the collectors.

I just hope his coat is flexible and doesn't hinder much of the articulation.

I think the biggest problem with Davy was that most of the merchandise was more based on the concept art rather than the final design. I think a Davy 2.0 would blow away anything that HT has done recently.

Fan
07-09-2012, 12:12 AM
I'm searching one myself but even though it's a little sad that it's so hard to find it now I think it's better this way than as if there was a 2.0 or something like that.

Think so because Hot Toys will surely destroy their own market one day if they re-release each and every figure again and again and it's not to bad for their image and our feeling about the figures if there are at least some figures that stay legendary.

Otherwise there will be a mass of every type of figure one day and probably nearly none of them will keep it's worth (as seen with the Tumbler and the Mark I...), which will also mean that Hot Toys wouldn't be able to charge such high prices as they do now.

darthviper107
07-09-2012, 07:44 AM
I think it's fair for the most popular characters to re-release them when they didn't do that well the first time, the stuff with Batman is a bit overboard though. Like Joker 2.0 is awesome but not necessary

They could do this one so much better now though I'd really like them to redo it.

He really deserves a re-release. I own this figure and enjoy how much has this guy fetch, but I really hope HT release him again with the current standard they have!

But again who am I that HT would listen to me. There's too much Iron, Pred and Bats in HT's mind lol.

I've noticed the crab leg on mine is severely bent at the tip. I guess having him stand on it these past 7 years is causing it to buckle under pressure. Anyone else having this problem?

I haven't had mine nearly as long but I checked anyway. Mine has a slight curve, def not straight as an arrow, whereas the angle of yours is much sharper.

I don't know if it matters, but the crab leg on mine is displayed pointing inward, at say 4'oclock whereas yours is outward approx 10 o'clock.

Maybe the crab leg on yours is rotated incorrectly and causing this? Or maybe mine is wrong? I have no idea, just something I noticed. :lol

Here's a product photo maybe you can compare to:

:lol Mine is on a stand, but that's a good question! I think if mine were bending like his I'd prop the crotch grabber up a bit and try and alleviate the weight on it. :huh

I refuse to use stands, those black discs break up the "illusion of reality". Either way, I don't think the strength of the stand would be able to hold the figure up high enough to relieve the pressure on that point of the crab leg. The stand is designed to stop a figure from tipping over, friction holds the wire part up, but the weight of the figure would just push the stand back down, so I don't think it would work.

In any case, I just dunked it in hot water and it slowly straightened itself out. . . so all's well.

I went back to the first post to see when the thread was started. . . twas a surprise.

Kinda funny though, I pulled him out the cabinet to inspect, and no damage or anything like that, this thing is fully "rubber" or rather soft PVC. So, I remain convinced that all this "rubber rot" stuff that's going around is just poor handling or adverse weather conditions.

Glad to hear you got it straightened out (no pun intended). I get why you don't like stands, many collectors don't for that very reason. I like them. I like having a base to display them on. But anywhoo, I will say that I think you're a tad wrong about stands and it falling back if elevated from weight. I have many superman figures and 3 out of the 5 are in flight poses with the "crotch grabber" extended well above standard height. None have fallen back down in the weeks they've been in these flight poses. Even with how heavy Zod is, the "crotch grabber" can still elevate him. Food for thought :wink1:

I'd love a Davy Jones if I could afford one.

Finally got the real deal Davy MIB for a decent price and love it! Easily one of my top three figures of all time.
