I loved Sweeney Todd. Not because I felt good after the movie - it's a tragedy from the start till the end, but because the songs and theatrics were grade A entertainment. I can point out the one about turning people into pies that's to me worth the price of admission. :P
Mr Todd is an interesting character, so I had high hopes for the figure. Medicom once again chose to use their short[er] RAH body - so he's dwarfed by Hot Toys' Jack Sparrow which is a shame (use taller bodies already Medicom!). The clothes are decent - he's got three layers of clothing on with hardly any puffiness, and his only "accessories" are an extra grasping hand, and two razors - one opened and one folded.
While the headsculpt isn't nearly 100% accurate - I think the cheekbones need slightly more definition, it's probably an improvement on Medicom's part. I'm spoiled by Hot Toys' sophisticated painting jobs (who isn't?), so it's easy for anything else to pale in comparison. Still, it's decent enough. Collectors don't really want to complain when they've shelled out big bucks for a fig - they want reasons to love it. I'll just pretend I do. XD
*Alright, I love my Sweeney Todd fig. I'm just afraid he'll break my heart like Peter did. (See previous post)
