Set in the future when robotic technology is thriving, this live-action adaptation of the popular anime follows an amnesiac cyborg, Alita, who finds herself awakens in a future world that she does not recognize.
Hot Toys announced a 1/6th version of the new heroine from Alita: Battle Angel. The figure features a newly developed head sculpt with separate rolling eyeballs (PERS!), her highly detailed body which displays the complicated mechanical design, a beautifully tailored outfit with fine textures, a blade, a heart attachable to the body and multiple interchangeable hands and feet to match with the cyborg body. Along with the figure, it also comes with an elaborated diorama figure stand inspired by the battle scenes.
Not sure how easy it will be to get that clothing on and off, but it looks to be a very versatile figure display-wise. Hot Toys originally showed this with synthetic hair but has changed it to sculpted for the release apparently.
Should hit the streets for pre-order soon and I’m going to venture a guess of at least $240 for this one due to the intricate body design.

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.
