This Isn’t a Photo of Zoe Saldana as Gamora


Regular readers know I’m always quite impressed with Hot Toys – but this is a new level even for them. The only reason I know that’s not a photo of the actress is because I got it from the Facebook gallery for the Guardians of the Galaxy toy.

Zoe’s long overdue for some good toys – the Star Trek figures from Playmates and Mattel’s Avatar figures were not exactly masterpieces. But what with this and the excellent Marvel Legends likeness, I have hopes for some decent Neytiri stuff when James Cameron finally stops diving and starts filming blue cat people again.

This doesn’t make up for the weird Gamora omissions in a lot of the mass-market merchandise. But if it’s any consolation, this crushes them all.
