I had forgotten I started working on this Hannibal Lecter Action Figure post and left my computer for a few hours to eat some sloppy joes and self-serve fro yo, and when I came back I was looking right into the muzzled mug of Hannibal F'ing Lecter! Holy crap Blitzway nails the realism, even at 1/6 scale.
The action figures, available in versions Hannibal Lecter White Prison Uniform and Hannibal Lecter Straitjacket, are forthcoming releases (Q1 2018) in a highly detailed nod to 1991's Silence of the Lambs. In promoting their beady-blue-eyed cannibals with over 30 points of articulation, Blitzway reminds us that the film is the first American horror movie to win an Oscar in all five top categories. That's Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actress for Jodie Foster, and Best Actor for our Hannibal, Anthony Hopkins. I wonder if Hopkins has seen this action figure of his character, and if it freaks him out so much he can't look in the mirror for days after.
That's how much it freaks me out.
Both versions of the Hannibal Lecter action figure will come with a complete set of "artifacts", ranging from an orange prison uniform and straitjacket, to masks and movable gurneys, to Dr. Lecter's drawing props and authentic patterned carpet. Enjoy the posable fun with some fava beans and a nice Chianti, or perhaps another dish from Dinner with Lecter.
