Cool! I'm down for a 1/6 Jake Gyllenhaal faux-Persian Prince figure!

As long as the movie doesn't suck.

This is true. I thought it was going to be a video game version, but then I saw the pic in the first post. :(

There have been numerous designs for the modern Prince. One for each new game, actually:

http://www.mcgamesandtoys.com/images/Prince_of_persia_two_thrones_PC_CG.jpg

the 3 above are the same prince character, just from different games.
The one below is from a fairly recent reboot of the Prince of Persia franchise. I think the movie clearly picks and chooses some design elements from the game.

i had no idea this movie was even happening. i thought that was jared leto in the poster at first. then it got me thinking, as talented as jake gyllenhaal is, leto might have looked more the part for this.

i'm sure a figure will look incredible. i'm in if the movie is good. less interested in avatar and clash of the titans.

Seems like the movie version is just as good/better than the video game version as far as looks/design goes.

Are there any specific villains from the game that they might have used in the film? I assume all we're getting is Jake and a villain.

there's the Vizier which is who, I believe, Ben Kingsley is playing. it would be neat to have a figure of Ben Kingsley

I love that they picked this license, i must have sent them 50+ emails begging for PP game stuff, but ill gladly settly for this as its close enough, and jake isnt an ugly guy, plus they just anounced a new game and from what i can tell they are going back to the original prince from the dominating 3 games i love so dearly.

that last game was a slap in the face

There seems to be quite a variety of characters they can do given what we've seen so far in the previews. Here's hoping the line succeeds so we get a complete set.

I want the Watchmen too but unfortunately the rest of them will probably never get done because the movie didn't do huge business and it is now old news, very sad but that is probably the case

I actually hope this movie is as good at PoTC 1 so they give us more than Dastan, I hope we get Gemma's character as well. We could see Ben Kingsley's character too, but that's even less likely.

I recently saw some commercials on a Dutch movie site about this movie and it suddenly got my attention. I watched the trailers again after that and I enjoyed them better than when I first saw them. I guess this movie slipped under my radar a bit. Maybe because I never played the games or anything... :dunno

Anyway, now I'm definitely looking forward to see what HT is gonna do with this license. The could do some great stuff IMO.

:lecture Exactly, me too!
I think it would look great to display Dastan and Tamina figs side by side :)
And a Ben Kingsley figure would be pretty awesome too!

By the way, is that Gemma Arterton in your sig, Hunnipot?

Well it wasn't "crappy" but definitely not iconic or good enough to buy a $150 figure from (imo) unless you really like the actor or something.

It wasn't as bad as people are saying, I had a good time watching it. Hope you enjoy it Ingo!! Let me know! :)

Having now seen the film I'd have to say that Dastan is probably the only character we'll see from the movie, unless it does PotC type business. And I'm okay with that. Actually the only other character that I think worthy of the HT treatment is the Chief Hassansin. Of course I'd buy Gemma Artherton and Ben Kingsley if they made them, but their outfits aren't that interesting.

I too have just returned from seeing this. I thought it was good. Very classic adventure film, though I don't think it'll hold up as well as the real classics of the genre.

Like some have mentioned earlier in the thread, Dastan wears two distinctly different outfits throughout the film. The first outfit is the one you see in posters and billboards for the film with the chest armor, but the second one is used for the majority of the film (though it goes through some changes).

I'd rather have the latter outfit. Actually, If I were wishing for things, I'd would like HT to include the extra parts to display the figure any way we want (as Dave mentioned).

the second outfit:

the movie is a major dud: bad reviews, 3rd place to the 2nd week of Shrek #4 and Sex and the City #2. Pretty embarassing. Hot Toys will probably only make one and Sideshow is now stuck with a very pricey PF based on a dud. Good reason to not make stuff before a movie has proved itself. By the time the HT and SS stuff comes out, this movie will be long forgotten.

Deckard
06-01-2010, 06:42 AM
From the trailers this movie looked absolutely retarded, but I dunno what it's based on really, all the swirling sand and CGI crap falling apart just didn't interest me, and when I was at the theatre Saturday night I overheard some young kids coming out of a screening who thought it was pretty stupid, which isn't a good sign since it should appeal to younger audiences.

Not that I care about this license or anything but it doesn't bode well for other video game films.

Seriously how hard can it be to make a winner out of a game like Halo, Half Life, Bioshock, etc. These things make way more money then films, it seems like the next logical step is adapting them properly. Film studios really don't get it.

Yep, its always good to remember that when it comes to HT you really never can tell. The Spirit is probably the oddest example... but if I were a betting man I'd say Destan will be the only figure.

Eamon
06-01-2010, 07:24 AM
The Spirit is a bad movie.
Prince of Persia if anything is merely an ok movie.
Though I really enjoyed it.

Aside from the princess, I cannot think of what other figures they could do anyways.

Darkseed
06-01-2010, 07:57 AM
I haven't seen the movie yet however, I will. It isn't received very well by many but neither was XMO: Wolverine and I enjoyed that movie very much.

In regards to the HT figure, I always give them a look. A connection to the movie character isn't always an indicator whether I buy or not. Hopefully I will see the movie and figure specs soon.

With The Spirit they had announced 3 figures before it came out and bombed. For this they only announced one.

PoP was #2 for the weekend, but isn't likely to do blockbuster business.

Well, PoP actually reached number 1 internationally, and I'm sure Hot Toys observes more than just stateside b.o. gross.

In the U.S., was there really any doubt that the film would struggle to hold its own against a giant, tired ogre and a pack of old, wrinkly hags?

Runawaybrain
06-01-2010, 11:55 PM
Haha comment of the day. Disney expected about $200 mil stateside from this as franchise starter. Doesn't look like it's going to happen, but it could find legs. Wouldn't be the first time. That said, the Dastan is cool, and given the performance, I'm happy to be getting him at all.

talking about the old wrinkly hags, I've never seen Sex and the City, tv or movies so know nothing about it except I don't ever want to see it because that sarah jessica parker is scary ugly. That Matthew Broderick must have a large supply of paper bags in the drawer in table next to their bed.

Sands of time was a solid 8.5/9 out of 10. Great story and visuals (for its time), the controls were great (as with all of them). Just a lot of fun to play! I haven't played the very latest one, been busy with Red Dead Redemption.

The newest one is really a departure from the original trilogy... it's a simpler, more casual game... from the puzzle solving to combat and how the game handles death. Beautiful game nonetheless. I still think Sands of Time is the best in the series.

I just saw this movie...and I had the strangest feeling of deja vu. It was like Clash of the Titans all over again except not as good. PoP was well made, had good actors, but things just happened. It felt very middle of the road. Maybe a Dastan figure could be cool, this will be a hard sell for me, but he was likable in the movie. :dunno

The teaser figure looks pretty good, but I'd have to see the movie first. Then, I'll know if this figure is worth it or not.

I don't think there's much between them and I probably enjoy Clash more. But I do think POP is a far better executed movie.
Clash I feel is a very clunky movie with no human charm at all. The characters were very bland and I think Danstan was far more fun to watch than Perseus I thought.

Deak Starkiller

Yeah but to me the difference between the two were COTT had big chunks missing but if they were put back in you have a chance to have a great movie. POP was just there with everything but that certain something to really make it stand out. It is like watching POTC without Jack Sparrow...Will Turner is likeable but completely vanilla. Hell Elizabeth Swan had more going for her. I am still torn on how I much I liked PoP. Meh. :huh

Hot Toys seems to save the female figure slots for badass chicks. Tamina had attitude a plenty yes, but she was a damsel in distress more than anything.

Two outfits and the accessories look cool however, IMO something looks amiss about the lower portion of the face. Perhaps it will all come togther with a full face shot.

I am quite interested to see more.

They seem fearful of doing larger eyes on their characters and this is one character/actor who has larger eyes.

Im with you. I actually like Wolverine and even Term Salv. Were they the greatest? No but it was fun tv. I even like the Transformer sequel. Have yet to watch the original. This one looks good. The skin texture is pretty intense right now but Im sure it will be smoothed out by production.

Mighty_Jabba
06-17-2010, 09:20 PM
It was a good old fashioned adventure film. Unlike previous game adaptations it made an effort to give us interesting characters that we could care about not be bored by. That and the fact that it didn't feel like someone just filmed the actual gameplay from few different angles like in the other game based films. It was a film in its own right and that's why I think it succeeded. I hope there is a sequel because I'd like to spend some more time with these characters.

bandito
06-17-2010, 10:26 PM
not exactly perfect... but the angle is quite close... perhaps I should enlarge the top a bit more...
