Posted by

Taking advantage of the movie boom of “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings“, Hot Toys, while launching the Shang-Chi action figure, also brought us another action figure, the father of Shang-Chi, Wenwu. The biggest highlight of this figure is the head sculpture of the Wenwu figure is based on the Hong Kong star Tony Leung. Let’s take a look!


Wenwu Action Figure

This Wenwu action figure adopts a 1/6 scale, and its height is about 28cm, which is approx. 11.02 inches.

And this action figure recreates the look of Wenwu wearing the Ten Rings’ uniform in the film, it uses real fabric materials, and the overall tailoring is also quite good.
We can see the shoulder armors and the corresponding dark-red lines on the surface are all recreated.

In addition, the belt is also very eye-catching, whether its armor details, exquisite tie ropes, or even the Ten Rings logo are all depicted.

The iconic ten rings on the forearms of Wenwu are also recreated. According to Hot Toys’ introduction, special paint is also used on the ten rings this time, which can show luminous reflective effect by UV black light torch.

Of course, it is the same as the Shang-Chi action figure, also has nearly 30 points of articulation, which can act out a variety of different scenes.

The biggest highlight of this action figure is this head sculpt.
Tony Leung has been in film for more than 30 years, has performed countless classic works, accompanied the youth of a generation, and is a real popular idol.
It is the first time I saw an action figure modeled on him, and I am really excited about it.

The whole head sculpt itself has been crafted very carefully.
Like the Shang-Chi action figure’s head sculpt, some details are also very delicate. Facial pores, sharp eyes, slightly closed lips, and even eye socket wrinkles are all depicted.

But compared to the stills, this head sculpt always feels less like Tony Leung, unable to capture Tony Leung’s facial essence.
I believe the problem may still originate from the look in the eyes. The eyes of the Hong Kong best actor are not so easy to catch.

I can only say that I can barely recognize who this is. Only the appearance is similar, but no similarity in the eyes.
I hope Hot Toys can further optimize it before the official release.

In addition to interchangeable forearms and a large number of hands, this product also comes with a specially designed figure stand and a large number of ring power blue special effect parts.

Used with the main body, it can reproduce the scene in the movie very well.
In fact, there are many undisclosed accessories in another Shang-Chi action figure. I believe one of them must be Shang-Chi’s yellow special effect part as shown in the picture above.
