Once again Hot Toys has created a wonderful figure. This is the Mysterio figure we’ve all been waiting for!
The Spider-Man Far From Home collection from Hot Toys wouldn’t be complete without Mysterio. And he has finally arrived today!
THE BOX AND ACCESSORIES
The box for the Spider-Man Far From Home figures have some of the best designs. Each features Mysterio’s fishbowl at the front and inside a promotional drawing of the character. That part can be removed to see the full promotional drawing and reveal a window box. I do hope the Spider-Man No Way Home boxes will keep a similar design.
This figure is Hot Toys’ biggest surprise in years. Indeed, when the figure was released, it was also announced that it included a Jake Gyllenhaal headsculpt! It made a lot of fans happy including me. This figure also comes with interchangeable hands, illusion effects, smoke effects, and a display base.
The display base is a simple one featuring the Mysterio symbol and some effects along with the name of the movie. To that base, you can add the two smoke effects for an even better display in your collection! As for the illusion effects, they work just like the Mandala effects that came with Doctor Strange. You have to insert the hands into the back, it’s very easy to do!
I have to applaud the teams at Marvel and Sony for that. In the comics, he looks so ridiculous with that fishbowl. And yet, in live-action, they have made something so cool! His costume features a huge amount of detail that Hot Toys has captured beautifully! If you have a UV flashlight, you can point it at the costume and cape to see some luminous reflective effects! Unfortunately, I don’t have one so I can’t show you how it looks. Though I do have pictures of the LED light-up fishbowl and it looks great!
This figure has over 30 points of articulation. For even better poseability, the boots are two separate pieces to allow feet articulation. The cape also has a wire at the bottom to adjust it for action poses! However, due to the nature of the material for the suit, it is recommended not to display the figure in the same action pose for a long period of time.
Hot Toys has once again crafted an incredible headsculpt! It really looks like Jake Gyllenhaal. No matter the angle, you can definitely recognize him.
The Jake Gyllenhaal headsculpt alone makes this figure worth buying!
The Hot Toys Mysterio figure is distributed by Sideshow Collectibles and is available to pre-order now.
