Remember the Chris and Sheva figures from last month? Those were unbelievably detailed. This time, the Hong Kong-based toysmiths of Hot Toys pulled the veil off their third collectible toy from Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360 and PS3), and he's someone we know all too well, dating back to his infamy in the very first Resident Evil - Albert Wesker.
Hot Toys lives up to the standard. The 12inch figure looks fantastic. There's crazy detail on this one as on Chris and Sheva. Notice the fine facial lines, the little signs of age on the face, the brushed-up hair (Okay, I honestly didn't mean for that to sound like a Nivea commercial), damn that's excellent toymanship.
The only thing left to do now is to fashion police the damn thing. Sure, black suit, cool. But chequered? I didn't know Wesker cared so much about fashion. But you gotta admit, chequered suit or not, that is one sick toy.
