Still planning on getting all these figures--and since this one doesn't have a light-up feature besides the base I'm betting it won't be too expensive--$150 at the most

I like it, but am disappointed with the typical bashers on FB who say they'll pass and stuff. If you don't like it good and do us all a favor and don't bash HT. They give us almost everything and we still have whiners and moaners.

But I did have intrest in this so i'm a bit disappointed.

Buttmunch
12-12-2010, 11:42 PM
I think the problem is the hair is too neat. Lets face it, Bridges is a bit sloppy looking. The figure looks more like 'just stepped out of the shower' Jeff Bridges in a white bathrobe.

robbiethepainter
12-12-2010, 11:44 PM
I think its the hair. Its a little too slicked and perfect. Same with the mustache. Too perfect.

If it's on par with Tron, I dont see the problem....:dunno

It's not as if Tron is this amazingly well written piece of film...it's cool effects project, with decent acting, and a pretty clever plot. If this movie can pull that off, i'm A-OK with that.

Maybe it's the lighting in their photographs that makes him NOT look like Jeff Bridges? I don't think I'm being too picky here but we've seen Hot Toys NAIL the sculpt completely. Something isn't there.

The Entity
12-13-2010, 04:55 AM
Could be the lighting, but I think the eyes are a tad close together, plus maybe a bit too far back in the head...

Furthermore the nosebridge is a bit too wide I think...

12-13-2010, 07:32 AM
The chance to get a Jeff Bridges figure is too good to pass up, and it is a really nice looking figure, but something is just a little bit off to me. The face looks more like Kurt Russel around the eyes, and I can't quite put my finger on it. The two outfits though is great, and this may be first Hot Toys figure.

They wont because it was never intended to be R-Rated. If the Coens made it PG-13...THEY made it PG-13. They're not the kind of directors you push around. They're way past that stage.

Plus, it's not like the original movie was super violent and girtty.....it WAS G for godsakes. G was G back then....not the same as the PG rating.

Well I know that they had to trim some stuff down in order to get that pg 13 rating [a finger chopping scene] and some other stuff. I just wish they could have left that stuff in and still put the movie out the way they originally made it.

If the movie just completely rocks maybe I'll think about purchasing this figure. Looks great as always, LOVE the base, and I think the sculpt is excellent...just kind of boring overall.

Would love to have a Bridges to add to my collection...but would rather wait for a HT's Dude then spending the cash here.

To me, it's only boring because the likeness isn't there. If it was dead on, boring it would not be. TOTALLY COOL it would be.

Of course but what if it's still not 100% when they're done? It's a lot of money for a figure that they may improve upon few months later.

exactly. if the figure is this simple, with no distinctive features and practically zero accessories, then the head sculpt is the main selling point. it has to be done accurate or it makes for a boring figure. aldo raine and godfather are great figures precisely because of that.

btw, who is this jeon young tae? that's 2 tron headsculpts that he/she's done so far, and both are done poorly. ht should get someone else for quorra.

you guys in the US are lucky that way. here in asia once you pre-ordered you cannot cancel. after the pics and specs are shown, you only have about 2-3 weeks to decide to buy or not, then it's a done deal.

I could be wrong but I think he's one of their head sculptors. I think he did the T-1000 which was pretty fantastic. Perhaps these will be tweaked further before "showtime". Hopefully.

ok i just checked. you're right, he did the t-1000 sculpt, which was less than accurate when the proto was shown, but turned out great in the end. we shall see if that can be replicated for tron.

Have you seen a preview of the film? Just curious because how would one know that the figure doesnt capture the charatcer of the film if you havent seen it yet? IMHO you cant really know what the character of a film is like based on just still shots of an unreleased film or previews. I dont mean to be an ass, just wondering if youve seen it.

the costumes are well-made though. and i like the base. too bad the light disc doesn't actually light up.

With something so small I don't think it's possible to make the light disc light up by itself


If you compare the photos between the sculpt and Jeff Bridges, they do have quite a bit right---but I think they made his jaw too big

The disc is the Spin Master Sam Flynn Deluxe available at Target, Walmart etc.

That disc is not 1:1. Its actually smaller than the original. According to Rickprops on the RPF (the maker of the prop) the original hero discs were right about 9.25 inches give or take without the outer blade. The Spin Master is 8.5 inches without the outer blade. Still a cool replica, but just too small. Sideshow is releasing a full size off the original moulds soon!

Also some info for those that are interested. In the film there were multiple size discs used for various scenes and characters. Hero discs were the 9.25, background/ walking discs were from 9.25- 11 inches without the outer blade, and the stunt versions were 11- 12 inches without the blade. Each length disc also had different levels of finishing. Some discs had the outer/ inner rings painted, while others would light up. Some disc bodies were a two tone black scheme, while some were an opaque black body with a satin sheen. Just some info for those who dig the discs like I do.

I had 0 interest on Tron figures but wow, lets just say the movie changed my mind. The Kevin figure does need some improvement though. Did he not have a hood in the film? Or am I getting my hooded figures mixed.

I think I'll definitely get this though I do think the head sculpt needs improvement.

I'm DEFINITELY going to be displaying it with his black outfit. I wish he had an LED in his back that would shine on the white bits on it's interior though like the movie.

He did have a hood...but the weird thing is, in many scenes any sign of the hood was gone. You'd think it would be hanging down behind...but I didn't see it...very strange. My guess is it just sort of morphed out of the coat and then when he didn't need it, it would just shrink back into his coat, like their helmets...I dunno.

I haven't seen the film YET but I am on wednesday...but from what it looks like from my above photo collage, it seems as though his hair is cleaner or fixed looking on the pic on the far right so maybe that's what HT was going for?

the beard looks about the right length to me. also from my above pic, the beard looks like it needs to be more into the cheeks if anything

I personally would just age him a bit more and add the darker black spot in the beard but that's about it for me. it's a buy for me anyhow so for all I care, they can keep it the way it is

I sympathize with the sculptor, this is a hard one to capture. When I saw the sculpt I was a little disappointed so I started my own. And what do you know the darn thing looked like Gene Hackman for a while. It took about two hours for me to sculpt Hackman out of it. Itís still a work in progress but I think itís getting there.

It would be really cool if they managed to give him the hood on the final figure, but like you said It doesn't need it. I'm getting this figure regardless :hi5:

I still think the hair looks too well groomed. Bridges' hair isn't so well combed. Its wild and all over the place. Not slicked down with hair gel like the HT sculpt. And the beard is too thick as well. It wasn't as bushy as it is there.

I agree with you on the hair, its just a little too perfect. All the strands running in the perfect direction. For the beard, I wonder how you make it look thinner? I agree but it is a solid sculpt after all.

Buttmunch
12-25-2010, 10:58 PM
I would think just using less paint could make it look thinner. Perhaps have the whole face flesh tone and then paint the beard over it and not have it entirely saturate the area so you would be able to see the beard paint layering over the face paint. I dunno. But the beard does appear too thick because of not being able to see through it like a real beard. But the biggest problem is the head hair. That is just way too perfect. I don't think Bridges ever looks like that except perhaps just out of the shower :lol

His black outfit needs to light up. A big fail on HT part for not doing that. For a company that prides itself on pushing the limits of 1:6 scale, something like light up clothing is expected after all of the light up figures they have done in the past.

I see what y'all mean about the hair, but eh not a big deal to me. I like the sculpt all around.

Beard looks about right

As for the light feature, guess it's good to have for more "accuracy" but to he honest, how many of you keep the lights on with your DX stands, DX02 Sonar head, and Iron Man figs for days or when your asleep at night with all the lights out? B/c there's nopoint in having lights on in the house plus the figure lights on if you're barely going to be able to see them. I don't, maybe that's just me, but I don't mind the suit not being able to light up. It would be cool, bu isn't must for me. Plus price will most likey go up as well and I like him at what CSC is charging ($134.99)

I'm not sure it's possible at that scale--taking into account it has to actually light up the cloth, and that the cloth is removable, it's more complicated than just lighting up a suit that's skin-tight

Do you think HT could release a Flynn/Clu figure with Flynn's costume from the first film and Clu's costume from the second film? Almost like a DX so you could do either character or both with an extra body. :yess:
