Sorry if this is in the wrong place, or has been posted before. I found this and figured the people here would enjoy seeing these.

They are pics from the man who sculpted the wolverine likeness.

hope everyone enjoys.

Yeah this was posted a while back, but I had no idea it was actually Kojun's own personal figure.

Very interesting, I would never want my own Wolverine permanently that way but certainly appreciate the quality of his execution.

Looking at his blog, I missed that he was the head sculptor for Aldo. While Connor and Wolverine have been iffy for likeness, Aldo's without question in my book, glad to see a piece from him at HT showing he can turn out likenesses for them as nice as some of his private work, I wasn't sure the HT schedule wouldn't hinder him from doing his best work.

Awesome!

I can't wait until Hot Toys starts doing all the old Marvel movie figures! I want an X-Men outfit Wolvie, Spider-man (though I get the feeling HT might wait for the "new" Spidey movie), Ghost Rider (isn't he already on the way?) and much more!

Wow.. Kojun does it again! :rock
I can still remember his Jack Sparrow sculpt. Awesome!

Cool custom, well done, but somehow, I don't like battle damaged characters. Removes all their generic quality and sets them in particular time frame of a scene...

So I like the reg version better! :D

I am of those who think that to the figure it is not necessary to modify it., but I have to admit that it is a very good work, as that of so many other artists.

personally i think kojun is overrated in this forum. let's hope if ever al pacino or deniro get a chance to be made a figure by ht, kojun is not the one to do them. give me yulli anyday over kojun.

Because the Almost Bale Wayne, smooshed Schwarzenegger Dutch and the not so Hamilton Sarah Connor sculpts are soooo much better. :rolleyes:

Kojun and Yulli have their good subjects and not quite as good subjects. It isn't really fair calling one better than the other. I think people are a bit overzealous about Kojun being the new kid on the HT block, though.

while yulli did some less than stellar works, she's also done some truly eye-popping sculpts like, say... the BR joker, to have earned our devotion. i looked through kojun's past works(depp, deniro, pacino, etc.) and there's nothing close to the caliber of BR joker.

now though... post aldo raines, i'd totally get it if people start praising him to high heaven. his aldo is beautiful, it's worthy to occupy the same display space with BR joker. but pre aldo, i really dont get what the hype was all about. so far, yulli still has better batting average.

That's like what, one sculpt? :lol Botched likenesses and Ledgerworship aside, both produce phenomenal art that obviously command's HT's prices regardless of how off the sculpts are. Personally, I'd say their playing field is level.

Kojun did John Connor as well, probally the best 1/6th figure released last year IMO.

His Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark sculpt is quite nice too. I own the John Connor and Wolverine and Goemon and those are quite nice, though Goemon is the only one that I could really say has a uncanny likeness to the actor it's based on.

So, yeah I like Kojun's work quite a bit, but not any more or less than Yulli's, which is well repped on my shelf. I love her Jack Sparrow and Joker sculpts. It's not really fair judging either on the same level because Yulli's work has been in the public eye a lot longer so we've seen her ups and downs much more than Kojun's.

Actually, the HT sculpt I'm most impressed with comes from neither sculptor. The Godfather sculpt was from Kang In Ae.

that's 1 example. cannibal jack sparrow would be 2. t-800 arnold would be 3. i'm sure there's more. the hype for kojun had started here way even before he's done anything close to that level. that's my point.

one of the best figures i own, but not one of the better likeness IMO.

BR joker sucks IMO. Even the DX isnt 100% spot on, like lmarsqd's joker sculpt.

I think her best work to date would be kamui gaiden.

I am not digging THAT battle damaged Wolverine :huh The craftsmanship is solid but with that sculpt / expression, I prefer the clean look.

I'll give ya the Jack Sparrow, but it's really not saying much given that most companies who've produced work from the flick have captured Johnny's likeness relatively easy. As for the T-800, Arnold is still off a bit. She's not elongating his face between the eyes and the bottom of the nose like she should to truly nail the likeness.
