MC Toys. The End Walker. Review.

Cursed be the ground for our sake. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for us. For out of the ground we were taken, for the dust we are... and to the dust we shall return 

Today I will review this figure and I will show you some pictures I took of it few days ago.
I was very excited about this new figure because I like the movie very much; for me, the book of Eli is one of the best Post-apocalypses movies ever and I don´t understand why it hasn’t became more popular.

First thing to know, this is not a set but a whole figure so nude-body, headsculpt and even a modest box are included. Do not expect a Hot toys boxing but if you appreciate nice boxings for the figures you collect, this one will do the job. ( Sorry this time I didn´t take a pic of the box).

What I really like about this figure is its price, 75 euros (shipping not included) which means it is a very affordable figure to collect.

As you can see this figure “seems to be” Denzel Washington in the movie “the book of Eli”. This resemblance comes more from the accessories than from his headsculpt which doesn´t look like the actor very much. 

But if you don´t like the face too much, don´t worry, figure comes with a wool hat, sun-glasses and a scarf you can “disguise” his face with. Seriously, these accesories are quite cool and they also represent the movie so much, so you won´t miss a nice HS this time.


If you want to compare the figure with the real character from the movie, go to my previous post and you can see many pictures there.

Accessories are movie accurate specially weapons, they look worn-out and also they have details of "post-apocalpisis" customization. 

I find the machete for instance a piece of art. Figure comes also with a shoot gun, a pistol, and an Ipod. No extra ammo is included so make sure Eli makes every bullet count.

The BOOK of Eli is not included; that is a shame! for we have so many figures armed to the teeth, it would had been cool for once to have a reader in the gang. I wouldn´t have minded to pay extra money for the book and for the bow and those cool black arrows eli shots so accurate.

Figure´s clothes are also the ones Eli wears on the movie.
This is good but the fabric mc toys has used with them is too spandex, too shinny and also too thin. 
If you are used to customize your figures, you definitely have to work on this one and get this guy “mad max” dirty. I am sure the result will be terrific.


I hope you like the pictures of of this MC Toys End walker and Happy new year everybody!!

  1. Jako, though I didn't watch the movie, I like the outfit and accessories very much. The shotgun and machete look so realistic. This is a great weathering job done by MC Toys and even better than Hot Toys. If the head sculpt is good, this will be a very good figure for collection. Anyway, I may consider to get this figure if I have extra money. Happy new year to you and your family too!!

  2. Happy new year to you too Desmond!!. All the best!
