Hot Toys True Type Figure ( tom cruise likeness )



love the articulation on the Hot Toy's true type figures...realistic and when worn with fabric costumes the outline and body structure's kinda accurate...


Using this True Type body for the james bond kitbash...hence removal of the Cruise head.

haha...i paid $38 from csc's toyz crazi...the dealer was a very nice man and placed it on preorder for me about three weeks ago...

as for the likeness..its not spot on..but there are minute details which they took for the headsculpt...most online forum collectors dub this Hot Toys true type body the ''lookalike'' slightly to Tom cruise...

and yeah its the caucasian (special edition) true type...
