I’m going to be honest with you: when I first saw the Star-Lord Sixth Scale Figure by Hot Toys on the Sideshow Collectibles site, I wasn’t bowled over. Maybe it was the fact that he was helmeted in most of them, or the lighting in the pictures, but I sort of went “hunh, cool” and went upon my merry way.
Then I saw some pictures of the figure without the helmet and rocking the Walkman. Bam, I was in love. They even took pictures of him dancing and it was like looking at a mini Chris Pratt! So, when Sideshow sent me one of the figures for review, I knew I was going to have fun with the unboxing.
This figure is gorgeous. The detail in the sculpt, the insane perfection of the outfit—the jacket alone is a frickin’ masterpiece. I’m seriously blown away by the workmanship. This figure is definitely my personal favorite of any of the figures I own and he’s already got a very special spot in my collection.
I had a blast taking the pictures and went completely overboard, as you’ll see after the break.
