NCS Product Synopsis
December 29, 2006
Johnny Depp's pasty-faced
interpretation of Willy Wonka from the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
movie was unsettling and somewhat artificial looking. Rigid in posture and
animated with facial tics, Willy was/is a strange guy.
Medicom takes a stab at recreating Depp's Wonka in 400%
Kubrick form and succeeds for the most part. Fitted with a top hat and natty
purple jacket, Willy Wonka carries a cane with swirly top and looks the part of
a reclusive confectioner. The figure measures 28cm (11.02") tall and features
blue eyes and bright red lips. Similar to other 400% Kubricks, the arms and legs
of the Willy Wonka figure are posable but we think he looks fine in the factory
pose. In the retail packaging, Wonka wears a pair of rose-colored glasses which
may be removed and a cane is included as an accessory.
