Do you want to see the greatest Eric Draven statue of all time or do you want to see the greatest Eric Draven statue of all time? Take your best shot, funboy! Well, I’m going to make your day. Ladies and gents, behold – the greatest Eric Draven statue of all time! Sideshow Collectibles sent me this figure to review, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
I’ve been collecting various Eric Draven figures for the majority of my life so I can easily attest to the fact that I’m kind of an expert in what makes an Eric Draven statue so great. In fact – I distinctly remember my second action figure of all time being one. The Crow’s held a soft spot in my heart for a number of years and is largely responsible for the Melissa you see today.Imagine my delight when I discovered that Hot Toys, one of my favorite and most lusted after toy companies, was releasing a sixth scale Eric Draven. I drooled and immediately knew that it was only a matter of time before he would be mine. Luckily, Sideshow beat me to it and now I get to share how awesome this figure is with you.
The Hot Toys Eric Draven stands at an impressive 12 inches, complete with an assortment of accessories and removable layered clothing. The box itself is an art piece; after you remove the initial cover, the figure is displayed through another layer – the broken window that Eric swings through after awakening and slathering on his infamous makeup for the first time. Squeal-worthy.The attention to detail is simply incredible: the to-scale stitching on his guitar straps, the texture of his “just crawled of the grave” hair, the contrast between his ripped clothing and taped off sections, the details of the wedding ring on his necklace, the feathers on the crow. I have never seen a more accurate depiction of Eric Draven. Hot Toys really knocked it out of the park with this one.Paint Job: They did an unbelievable job with the paint – the likeness to Lee is uncanny. His facial expression is indisputably perfect – I can actually feel the emotions behind it. It’s almost as if I’m looking at a picture of Lee himself!
Sculpt: Hot Toys is famous for their impeccable attention to detail in their sculpts, and this one is no exception. Not only is his face outstanding, but the curvature of the fingers in his hands really depict what makes Lee’s Eric Draven, Eric Draven.Poseability: As with most Hot Toys figures, you can pose the sixth scales into a variety of different positions and experience seamless interaction with their included accessories. Eric can hold his guitar flawlessly, as well as kick, punch and do other Crow-type things. The only restraint lies in his pleather pants – if you took them off I’m sure his legs would be 100% poseable. Not that you would take off his pants, of course. No way.
Accessories: The sixth scale figure comes complete with a guitar, guitar strap, a realistic looking crow with accompanying stand, four sets of interchangeable hands, wedding ring on a necklace and removable leather jacket. It’s a little less than other Hot Toys figures I have (some include a few different heads), but I’m satisfied with the amount. There’s really nothing else you could have included!
