Well, life has certainly gotten busy and I’m way behind on posting some new collectible photos. I have been sitting on some of these for a while. Terrible how being an adult prevents you from getting to play sometimes. Today I have Hot Toys Jesse that I received from Sideshow. He is a fun addition to the named clone collection, and I hope that with success of him, Captain Vaughn and others, we might see ARC Troopers Echo and Fives in the future. The sculpt is awesome. A great likeness of Temuera Morrison with Jesse’s large Republic Crest tattoo, the way we get different variations on his image is awesome and shows how talented the artists are. Sculpt and make of the armor are similarly well done, as is usual for Hot Toys. We have some great detail and the pauldrons are awesome. Paint is excellent, again the Republic Crest tattoo is stunningly realized on the rendered portrait. We have battle damage and paint chipping on the armor pieces and very interesting amounts of different shades of blue and grey. I think the clones as a line of figures are just getting better and better. Hot Toys is certainly getting the practice. Accessories are nice here. Dual blasters, blaster rifle, ammo pouch, survival backpack unit (reminiscent of the Sandtrooper), comm-link with hologram, and helmet with visor accessory. We have a lot of options for very dynamic posing. I thought it would be interesting to try a more relaxed pose, the “hurry up and wait” of the military so to speak. Looking back I think I could have done a bit more to get it a little more natural looking, but not bad. And shows the flexibility of these figures even with armor. Another great addition to my collection. I can’t wait to have this with the rest of my 501st platoon that is shaping up. As always, happy collecting! #SideshowCollectibles #HotToysCollectibles #StarWars #ToyPhotography #YesSideshow If you liked this post and may be ordering this figure, please use my referral code (if you are feeling charitable): https://www.sideshow.com/collectibles/star-wars-clone-trooper-jesse-hot-toys-909745?me=9bc2bf3t
