If I had to list my favourite films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy would easily crack the top five. There’s just something magical about that flick: The right cast, the right director and the right attitude. My second-favourite character in that band of misfits? Easily Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, the deadliest woman in the galaxy. Yeah sorry, I dig Gamora but Mantis is by far my favourite.
In a film anchored by Star Lord’s taste in music and Groot’s…Grootiness, Gamora is a fierce blade with a surprising warmth to her character. Moreso even in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where she shines yet again. Her official impossibly realistic action figure from Hot Toys doesn’t look too bad either. Check it out below:
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The Gamora Sixth Scale Figure specially features:
- A newly painted head sculpt with an authentic and detailed likeness of Zoe Saldana as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- Green-coloured face with movie-accurate facial expression and make-up
- Long curly black and purplish-red real fabric hair implantation
- Specialized body with over 28 points of articulation
- Approximately 28 cm tall
- Eight (8) pieces of interchangeable hands including:
– One (1) pair of fists
– One (1) pair of relaxed hands
– One (1) pair of hands for the sword
– One (1) right hand for holding the sword
– One (1) right hand for holding the gun
- Each head sculpt is specially hand-painted
- One (1) reddish brown and black-coloured leather-like long coat
- One (1) black-coloured leather-like vest showing the edge of the white tank top
- One (1) long sleeved burgundy shirt
- One (1) pair of black-coloured leather-like pants with patterns
- One (1) pair of black boots
- One (1) black and silver-coloured belt with holster
- One (1) blaster
- One (1) fully extended sword
- One (1) folded up sword
- One (1) Aero Rigs jetpack with armoured chest plates
- One (1) miniature Baby Groot holding a bomb
- Specially designed figure stand with character nameplate and movie logo
My only complaint with these figures lately? I’m starting to wish that Hot Toys would give the realistic faces some more emotion, instead of relying on neutral expressions with each new release. For me, going the safe route robs these little fellas of some of the life that they’re more than capable of projecting from a toy shelf. Anyway, Gamora should arrive next year between July and September.
Better start saving those space credits though, because Gamora will set you back around $251/R3200. That’s like, half an Infinity Stone.
