Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece: Thor

Sometimes people get carried away with superlatives - everything these days is "ultimate" or "extreme" it seems. But when it comes to Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece figures, what other adjectives are there? These things are insanely detailed, down to the tiniest hair! I think the skin might even have pores!

This week brought us the new Hot Toys figure from the Marvel Thor movie, and it is pretty amazing. It's so realistic, the photos can almost trick you into thinking it's actually Chris Hemsworth. A 12" Chris Hemsworth, like the tiny lap-giraffe in the commercials maybe...

And yes, I can definitely say that I'd like the tiny giraffe and the 12-inch Thor myself...though they keep insisting that the giraffe isn't real. So Thor it is.

At $224.99, quality doesn't come cheap, but it's a lot less than a tiny giraffe would be. And it actually exists, in all it's awesome, amazing, superlative coolness.

Too many adjectives? Probably. But the details are below, see for yourself.
