Dont get me wrong guys I am a huge Alice and HT fan, I don't want to bash this figure and would love to get it, but the likeness looks horrible to my eyes.:horror

Don't be fooled by the pictures. She's perfection!

The eyes and nose seem off. A bit too close together and stretched IMO. It's so close that it works at some angles and not at others.

vareika
05-22-2011, 09:51 PM
I think in the zoomed out pictures (full body shots), the likliness seems off, but in the close up face shots they look good. So in conclusion - the sculpt is not to bad, but if her head is slightly tilted downward, her eyes look to slanted and the glare is too intense, while as if you look at her face closeup she almost looks as if she is sporting a small smile.

Marcus Wright
05-22-2011, 09:52 PM
Those who know my posts should know that I havent critisized any toy ever so far in all honesty.

But this looks plain horrible to me. When I first saw it I though it was some 10$ version of Alice from another company.:panic:

Wait, maybe HT hasnt really released that many female characters and they are just not that good at recreating females due to lack of experience and I am just having wrong expectations? Can anyone correct me.

P.S. I am writing so much because I really wanted to get this figure, but I am not sure anymore.:(

noisetrigger
05-22-2011, 09:59 PM
I agree with all the sentiments here. The sculpt does indeed look weird in the wide shots but perfection in close up shots.

I have a theory here. Maybe those wide shots where taken much earlier, like maybe before the HS was modified?

The CU shots were taken more recently, after it was approved but HT just didn't want to waste time to redo them all again.

Regardless I am excited. If it looks good close up I am not worried anymore.

This will be my first HT female figure.

It's amazing though that with the 2 hairstyle, even tho the hair is almost identical, I like the one that's parted more towards the ear. It seems to look more identical to milla. Maybe cause that's how I seem to remember her in the movie. Anyway, I like that hairstyle better on her.
Beautiful sculpt, another must have for me. :)

I'm not quite sure why, but she just looks really...bad to me. At the very least, I'm disappointed. It's hard to pinpoint exactly why, but she strikes me as really awkward looking. The facial expression is bizarre (mostly do to the slightly open mouth) and her base outfit doesn't quite look right (though I like the winter wear).

Man, im gutted. This has been my most anticipated HT figure of all time. And i will buy it. But i can barely even see Milla even in the close-up shots.

Im hoping we get a DX version somewhere down the line with a new head sculpt(s) and alt costumes from the previous games. All though id buy the other 3 figures of her too if thats the road they take. But after seeing this face id rather they sat down and did the face from scratch. :(

The negativity started a lot more faster than I expected for this figure. Usually takes a few more pages for that to happen.

I am still firm in my belief that this is just a picture problem. It will look great in hand. For some reason, most of HT proto shots never look really good to me (Wolverine, Blade, Barney Ross, GR, DX04, Thor, etc...). If I based my PO on their proto shots I would have skipped a lot of fantastic figs

Those still on the fence better make a decision now. Don't go hunting for one at a higher than usual price later like with GR and DX BL.

This will be one of those highly sought after figure in the future.

I love the head sculpt. It not exactly accurate but I love the slightly parted mouth showing a hint of teeth. This is how 98 percent of people look with their faces relaxed. Makes for a much livelier head sculpt. Hope the rest of the sculptors take note and follow suit.

I think Hot Toys dropped the ball showcasing this today. Especially after Friday's teaser, we all thought you know who would show up today. It's a bit like expecting steak and being served a hamburger

This is exactly what I was thinking. The eyes are not quite right and is face too long. I image you used Photoshop to shrink the head and tweak the eyes? I can't figure out how Hot Toys can do solid male sculpts, but they can't get the females right. Whiplash is a perfect example. I think Abigail Whistler is the only female figure that came close.

Wish they made her from part 1 when she was normal. I like the sculpt tho.

Same here... figure looks great but that movie was the worst of the series, which is saying a lot since all of the movies have been shat :lol

But I do like the red dress look from RE1 and would add the figure to my collection mostly since my wife really likes them.

It would have been really nice if HT made Alice from the first movie instead. I still haven't seen the third or fourth installments of the RE movies. But, since I do like Milla and this is not a bad looking figure of her, I may pick it up.

I think the figure looks great. I totally see Milla in there, but I can acknowledge that some minor tweaks would help. This looks pretty much the same as the figure they showed earlier this year, doesn't it? It concerns me slightly because there were big complaints about her likeness back then as well, and they didn't seem to make any changes to the sculpt.

Of course there's still time to fix it before it's released.

the 'role' is iconic, Reeves' movies for the most part were not so great, except for Somewhere in Time. Sorry I have never been the biggest Superman fan, but I do love superhero movies and I have seen them, but the rabid fanaticism that is expressed here sometimes about the length of time between the announcement and then the reveal is a bit absurd. If anyone is upset about the lack of HT announcing Superman then express that in the HT Superman thread and leave the HT Alice thread to be discussed for what it is.

They took long enough to reveal the figure after the "leaked" photos of the toy show, I doubt there will be any (more) tweaking of the figure.
Although it seems to me that just making the head a little less elongated would do the trick, which shouldn't be too difficult by just adjusting the molds.

I would encourage anyone who is in the same boat as me and wants perfection in their purchase, to post on facebook, and email them too. Supplying the photoshop may also help. I've heard they only took feed back once. For the Terminator Marcus. Its not due out until Q4, so hopefully if there are enough voices there is time for change.

that's how you do a female fig! best female ht fig, BY FAR. this will be my first ht female, and i actually hate all the r:e films. new benchmark has been set, and this bode well for future ht females, i hope.

my only complain is the 2 hair sculpts look too similar, practically identical. the difference should be more substantial than 'now you see my ears, now you dont'.

Completely disagree with your logic here. Only the Superman crybabies are having issues with this. Wanting a Reeve Supes since they did the Returns one, I can honestly say, I don't take any issue whatsoever with the way/order they did this. RE isn't as big a license as Superman, so it makes sense Alice would get a reveal before him. And I was honestly surprised they showed anything pre-con for Superman.

Fans of the movies are posting daily about the figure (good and bad) and discussion hasn't been halted a bit despite all the little drama queens having hot flashes in the Superman thread. :huh

____ all the psychotic little entitlement douches who've overhyped the living hell out of the Reeve Superman with their daily rants and redundant photoshopping skills demanding HotToys bend to their whim. If HT were smart, they would've held off Superman until SDCC or one of the other high profile cons in Asia and given him the proper unveil he deserves. Instead, they're sickeningly catering to the crybabies with all the little previews and sneak peeks.

Only by people like you who pop in here to ____ on Alice because your precious Superman hasn't had official specs listed yet. :nana:

The thing is I haven't _____ed about it. The film is pretty bad, but I was one of the few who thought that the figure look good.


I think the figure looks really nice, but I have no interest, as the movies are awful. It looks great for the fans though

Afterwards I made the hamburger comment, but I was only pointing out that a weaker licence like this should not have come out between Superman previews.
I also can't stand all those people who jumped on the Superman bandwagon just to tear it to pieces.

Not sure if you can. Plus Hot Toys is always getting photos removed from Facebook. They say "This photo contains copyrighted material and will be removed."

Could always try sending it directly. I've sent suggestions for prototype improvements to info.hottoys.com.hk, and they've responded.

US prices aren't available yet. Maybe SSC will announce US preorders on Thursday. Preorder for Japan is up and it is about 16000Y (MSRP 20000Y). I'm going to guess SSC preorder price will be $150-160US.

You came here complaining because the figure you expected to be released was NOT when you wanted, then you call this a "weaker" licence because you didn't like the movies, "bad" movies in your opinion...

I think Hot Toys dropped the ball showcasing this today. Especially after Friday's teaser, we all thought you know who would show up today. It's a bit like expecting steak and being served a hamburger

That not only tells me that you don't like the figure by comparing it to hamburger (and if you do, that was a sucktastic metaphor on your part) and Superman to steak, but a single post like this sets the ball rolling for the crybabies to come in and hate on the figure for no other reason than because HT didn't release the specs for the figure they're feeling entitled to. :huh

Well face facts it is a weaker licence, whether you like it or not.
I like Platoon, and I don't like Pirates of the Caribbean, but guess which one is the weaker licence? So bias has nothing to do with it.
And I am only disliking the people who were all over Superman hyping it up only to tear it down, because the eyes are 2mm to close together.

No, I like Hamburger, but I would be disappointed in being served it if I was hoping for steak, which I like more.
Look I am not looking for a fight so I am done talking about this figure, but I will say that I don't get the hate for it, and I think it looks like the actress in close up. The legs look a bit chunky, but that might be just the boots giving that impression

Didn't this figure kind of get teased at the anniversary shindig? it was also in a catalog next to demon batman and scarecrow..And we saw it before the specs.

I don't really get what the problem is...the superman figure is going to come out too. they teased it with a logo and now half his face and his shoulders...it wouldn't be a good tease if it was like a week before they released the friggin official specs.

Yeah the RE movies kind of blow...but I like it. Believe it or not, there are people that have been pulling teeth waiting to find out some official news on this for like half a year now. That's longer than a weekend.

As far as weaker license goes...I think the video games have a good enough following that people would be really excited to get even movie versions of characters. Even if they are bitter about it.

It's your own fault that you speculated incorrectly and got your hopes up...not ours, not Resident evil, not milla jovovich, and not hot toys.

At least your not getting divorced for 2 million dollars and finding out you have a bastard son with some busted house keeper with a rock for a face..."STOP WHINNNING"

superman will come out and you'll be really happy one day.


On a side note, I sure as hell hope that the dark knight rises license comes out before a jump to 200 dollars a figure.

Not looking to start one either. It's these little trivial licenses that should be the meat and potatoes of HT's non-convention announcements, which this was. And they should've stuffed the Reeve previews and done a full reveal (which you've already agreed with so we're on the same page) at SDCC. If you look at it like professional wrestling, it really gets diluted when you have belt matches every other week instead of saving them for the big Pay-Per-Views. This is no different. :huh :lol

All you who wonna pass on this release greatly reduce the chances for future announcements of Alice from the previous movies.
So remember this when HT announce the withdrawal with releasing only Milla from the original RE (not a fact).

I liked this movie in general... although the ending was very disappointing.
But well... third movie agonized with the exect same thing, so...
I really enjoyed this return of Alice to the roots of humanity, to the hateful unsuperheroic realism. The whole atmosphere of fear was present and the plot was very intrigued despite some slack in the understanding of what's happening in this poctapoc world.

I'll confess I thought Afterlife had it's moments. The scenes with Wesker and The Executioner were great but other than that, it was just the same ol' RE move to me and I just can't really stand the Alice character. That being said, even I don't get some of the negativity on this figure. I think it represents the character well and the likeness is really good too imho.

The movies were never intended to follow the games, just be loosely inspired by them, so the whole character needs to be taken in stride. Nemesis turning at the end made sense given the "almost" relationship at the end of RE1. Plus, him turning on Umbrella gave the movie some more Nemesis badassery than it would've just having him get spanked by Alice.

I hope they kill off k-mart so they can stop calling a human being k-mart. And I hope they re-cast wesker. I want val kilmer. even as a fat guy.

True but I've never really understood the point of making a movie based on a video game or book if the filmakers arn't gonna stay close to the source material. One of the things that made the games so great was the creepy atmospheres but the movies had none of that. No sense of dread or nothing. I mean yeah it had zombies and a corrupt global corporation but that was just a small part of RE and in the end the movies just didn't feel like Resident Evil even if it just to be loosely inspired by the games. The Silent Hill movie despite not having many characters from the games (similar to the first RE movie), still felt like Silent Hill much of it due to the atmosphere of the film being so similar to the game. My biggest gripe about the RE movies (mainly the sequels) was the treatment of the game characters, like totally _____ing out Jill in favor of Alice or making Carlos some middle aged Israeli guy. I actually would have preferred they just not even put in any of the game characters if they're gonna change them as much as they did.

I believe Milla will be in the next one only in a limited fashion, as last I heard it takes place in the hours in the first film between when she was dragged away by the med-techs and then awoke (apparently a day or two later) to find the city in ruins. So it isn't a reboot, but it is not a continuation from part 4 either.

I felt the same about the X-Men movies initially. It took me a while to realize that they're like an "Elseworlds" story. My first experience with that was The Running Man. I remember buying King's novel and being so ____ing stoked after reading it, then seeing the movie and being all "WTF?! REALLY?!"

Don't get me wrong, I have sorta a love/hate relation with the first movie. I hate the fact that it wasn't scary and didn't feel like the RE series I loved as well as the absence of game characters but on the other hand if I don't think of it as RE I can actually sit back and enjoy it and in the end I'm glad the first movie didn't have any game characters cause it would have ruined it for me. I'll also confess Afterlife is the only RE sequel I can watch without cringing everytime a game character shows up. I actually thought Chris and Claire were handled ok (for lack of a better word) for an RE movie and enjoyed the scenes with Wesker and the Executioner in Afterlife and I even liked the prison setting in the first half of the movie (reminded me a bit of the prison stage in RE5 Mercs) but in the end for me it still fails. The other 2 movies though no matter what I do I can't watch them even when I turn my mind off.

The fourth film, Afterlife, borrowed heavily from the fifth Resident Evil game; we expect that to continue.

While this is ordered as it stands, I would've preferred that version more. :monkey2

The only thing i see that could use an adjustment is the eyes. I don't think HT will go back and widen them. This is pretty much as good as we will get unless Milla herself has some sort of gripe about it.

Great comparison pic.
And it's pretty clear that the eyes need to be larger and the head rounder. Would be nice if HT manage to tweak it, but I doubt it.
Anyway, I'm still going to get this.
I hope the odd proportions of the body get fixed though... getting those boots on the Triad Eva body will be a biotch!

I think they are really close, without killing milla and shrinking her down to 1/6th scale, i'd say they almost nailed it.

They want to get all the hype for supes out of the way first. No need to compete.

:lecture:lecture:lecture Me too. Though, if there's no exclusive, I'll probably hit up one of the online retailers. CA tax and Sideshow's mark-up, make ordering general releases through them painful. :lol

Really? If I do order from them, it's going to be my second time purchasing from them. Any other good legit sites? [BTW, yesterday I bought a sheva for 160 dollars.] Me happy!!!

I am planning to use rewards credit on this one. With the free shipping it will be good.

I'll probably order a second one through third party though.

What more could they add to her package that'd make an exclusive??? except an Umbrella logo'd base???? she got everything but the helicopter she flew. she'll be about $160 at the online retailers.

Well, with Dutch's exclusive being tiny-assed headphones, Connor's exclusive being a tiny-assed PDA and Superman's being a tiny-assed rock with a chain, I don't think it'd take much to come up with something. Maybe the tiny-assed spiderthingy she pulled off of Claire's boobies? :huh

It's the eyes, they need to be a bit bigger.

Maybe it'll actually be Claire's bewbs:rotfl cause without them the spider thingy is just an amulet from ROTLA

I dunno. Dutch's were pretty irrelevant too without a 1:6 Huey to sit him in and plug them into. :lol
