opening of Hot Toys 1/6 scale Mars Attacks!! Soldier and Ambassador

Mars Attacks is a 1996 comic science fiction film directed by Tim Burton and based on the cult trading card series of the same name. The film uses elements of black comedy, surreal humour and political satire, and is also a parody of multiple science fiction B movies. Mars Attacks! stars an ensemble cast, which includes Jack Nicholson, Lukas Haas, Annette Bening, Jim Brown, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Glenn Close, Martin Short, Michael J. Fox, Jack Black, Natalie Portman and Danny DeVito.

I love the box design, very retro...makes the actual figures pale in comparison.

Only 13 points of articulation so don't overdo your pose :P

Nice illustration at the back of the box

Martian Soldier





Martian Ambassador

the cape is nicely done, the red sprinkles does not comes off easily.




Height Comparison
LEFT-medicom, RIGHT-hot toys

Here's my youtube video on the rolling eyes system for this figure, i think my soldier suffers from cock eyes, am going to bring it back to the shop to change. Overall, the articulation is not much but the feel and material quality is quite high for these 2 figures.

hey ken, i need some advice over here, i just got my joker dx over from tfh, but the button from the green waistcoat's missing. i'm wondering if its possible that it'd be replaced or something?


i've just mailed them. was wondering if you have previous experience of successful replacements?

depends if there's available stock to exchange, normally if the toy just arrives is ok with the guys at tfh. Have you search the box? i saw some guy in the forum also have missing buttons but he manage to find it.
