After many, many years of bootlegs and customs, Hot Toys finally nailed down the Matrix franchise and has released the first (of many, presumably) figures; the ONE, the only, Neo.
As portrayed by the ever-stoic Keanu Reeves, Neo is one of the most iconic sci-fi movie characters of all time. At first glance, it looks like Hot Toys has nailed another one. They’ve been on a pretty good streak lately with likenesses and this is no exception. No doubt it will be nitpicked over the next 8 months before its released but I think it’s pretty solid.
From Hot Toys:
With high anticipation from fans worldwide, Hot Toys is very excited to present the latest 1/6th scale Neo collectible figure from the award-winning science fiction film The Matrix. With meticulous and careful craftsmanship, the very stylish 1/6th scale figure features a newly developed head sculpt highlighting stunning likeness of Keanu Reeves as Neo in the movie, the signature form-fitting outfit and long coat with sophisticated tailoring, “lots of guns” including assault rifles, various types of submachine guns, and pistols, the iconic sunglasses, and a specially designed dynamic figure stand!
No detailed list of features yet, but the accessories shot show “lots of guns”, eight hands, duffle bag, glasses, and a branded stand with a flexible neck waist grabber – for those extreme slo-mo poses.

Toy photography melds his childhood dreams of comic book illustration and film directing with his design talents and – in his mind – justifies the ridiculous money he spends on these things. When he’s not shooting, he enjoys kayaking, catching up on good TV and building seemingly endless custom figures.
