The BEST Hans Landa headsculpt (sorry Hot Toys)!!!



Being a huge Tarantino fan, I snagged myself Hot Toys' Lt Aldo Raine 1/6 figure sometime back with the hope that Col Hans Landa would be as equally good to go alongside The Apache himself. However, Hot Toys did the unthinkable and gave fans a rather 'youthful' looking Hans Landa and a pretty inaccurate headsculpt at that too! Sorry HT, looks like there's a constant thorn in your flesh as DID's obviously catching up with ya'! Don't believe me? Read on.

Take a look at the comparison pics below.....the on-screen Hans Landa (as played by Christoph Waltz) is on the left hand side.....Hot Toys' ver. is at the top-right....while DID's prototype headsculpt is at the lower right of the collage below. See the massive differences! DID's definitely got it spot-on....better than HT this time!


These proto pictures were taken off a forum, and of course collectors are all getting excited anticipating DID's final product. Judging from these proto pics, it's gonna be sweet!!! I'm sold!

Bro, absolutely agree with you..This headsculpt is much better than HT version. The likeness is accurate :)

Here, here. The Hot Toys one looks nothing like him! Have also just watched the Green Hornet and am becoming a huge Christoph Waltz fan! :)

Are there any other versions out there? I distinctly recall seeing one version where they had two head sculpts -- one was the serious-looking one and the other was one with a slight smirk.

Was that the Hot Toys or the DID version? The hot Toys version looks very plastified, not at all lifelike. If I'm going to spend upwards of $150 I want the best one(s) out there . . .
