Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS157 Sucker Punch 1/6th scale Babydoll (approx 12-inch) Female Collectible Figure was released in May 2012 to much hype and fanfare. She was hot and all the reviews were good. I missed out on this figure due to other commitments and was glad to be able to get her again this year, at a much lower price then the original. In fact, I was able to get both Hot Toys Sucker Punch female figures for the price of one which just makes me one happy collector See my haul of September 2014 posted HERE

Having done a two-part review of the recently released Original Effect OE Killer Instinct series 1/6 scale Righter 13.5″ tall female action figure HERE and HERE, I think it’s a good time to do comparison shots of OE Killer Instinct Righter with OE Killer Instinct Sam. After all, they are both supposed to be from the same series and yet they both look so different from each other in terms of uniform / outfit. Killer Instinct Sam looks rather rugged as if she lives in a post-apocalyptic world whereas Killer Instinct Righter looks like she came from a sci-fi futuristic world. Whatever it is, I like them both from their anime / manga looking stylized female head sculpts to their different outfits. I actually prefer this series to OE’s original Army Attractive series of which 1/6 scale Viola female action figure was the first. Check out my review HERE and HERE.

So that about covers it for now
Mark Richard Hamill (born September 25, 1951) is an American actor and filmmaker. He is known for portraying Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, voicing the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series (along with its spin-offs and the acclaimed video games Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City).
In celebration of Mark Hamill’s birthday this year, Kotobukiya posted this picture of their Star Wars Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia ARTFX+ Statues alongside Han Solo and Chewbacca. Lots of Star Wars announcements recently, with Sideshow Collectibles Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi 1/6th Scout Trooper Figure (previewed HERE) and the Sideshow Collectibles 1/6 scale Speeder Bike (pictures HERE) as well as the Hot Toys MMS261 Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope 1/6th Han Solo 12-inch Collectible Figure (posted HERE) and Hot Toys MMS262 Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope: 1/6th Chewbacca 14-inch Collectible Figure (pictures HERE)
George Lucas’ multi-film Star Wars saga has had a significant impact on modern American popular culture. Star Wars references are deeply embedded in popular culture; references to the main characters and themes of Star Wars are casually made in many English-speaking countries with the assumption that others will understand the reference. Darth Vader has become an iconic villain. Phrases like “evil empire” and “May the Force be with you” have become part of the popular lexicon. The first Star Wars film in 1977 was a cultural unifier, enjoyed by a wide spectrum of people.
And these four (Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia) have played a very big role in making Star Wars such a success.

Science fiction since the original 1977 Star Wars, particularly in film, has often been influenced by and compared to Star Wars. Sounds, visuals, and even the music from the films have become part of the tapestry of American society. The film also helped launch the science fiction boom of the late 1970s and early 1980s, and made science fiction films a blockbuster genre. It has also been parodied in films and short videos, such as Spaceballs.
Star Wars fundamentally changed the aesthetics and narratives of Hollywood films, switching the focus of Hollywood-made films from deep, meaningful stories based on dramatic conflict, themes and irony to sprawling special-effects-laden blockbusters, as well as changing the Hollywood film industry in fundamental ways. Before Star Wars, special effects in films had not appreciably advanced since the 1950s. Star Wars was also important in the movement towards the use of computer initiated imagery in films. The commercial success of Star Wars created a boom in state-of-the-art special effects in the late 1970s.
The 1977 Star Wars pioneered the genre pastiche, where several classic film genres are combined in one film. In Star Wars, the genres were science fiction, the Western, the war film, and the quasi-mystical epic.
