heh, it's sheva's arms all over again.

This time, however, I too prefer the game accuracy. the red eyes were neet... I'll wager these will look pretty good too... especialy if lit from behind his sunglasses...

Have they said HOW his lights will work yet? where the power switch will be?

well... there are have been a few comments ill-disposed towards the updated eyes. Coupled with it being a Biohazard figure, its not totally dissimilar academically, wouldn't you say?

How is it like Sheva's arms all over again?


Sheva was announced, some people liked her, some didn't. Hot toys changed something about her, some fans were outraged.

Wesker was announced. some people liked him, some didn't. Hot toys hanged something, some fans are outraged.

while it's not 100% the same, it's a similar situation.
and from my position on sheva's arms, i can understand how some of you feel about the eyes. but at least with wesker, you can choose to turn the eyes off if you don't like them.

Oh! You meant in the general way. Okay yeah, you're right it is similar to Sheva. You can probably say the same about a lot of HT products.

Maybe there aren't that many. I can only think of one at the moment, and that would be the Dark Knight New Suit Batman figure. The final figure changed a lot from the prototype, and not everyone was happy about it. Head sculpt, suit details, the works.

I was going to mention Marcus Wright, but I think most people were happy when the head sculpt was altered. Maybe the Alien figure? Not too sure about that one.

I wonder how long wesker can last, the shirt is made of rubber same as the boots, checkers long coat and pants are made of paper thin plastic (or atlease feels like plastic)
