Out of the Box: Adam Jensen ( Play Arts Deus Ex: Human Revolution)

In my post about the DC Direct ME figures, I mentioned the higher quality of the Play Arts figures that Square Enix puts out, and the Deus Ex licensed line was no exception to that.  These are lovely figures with fantastically detailed sculpts and solid accessories.


The Jensen figure came with multiple hands - a pare for gripped the included gun, a pair of fists, and a pair with the blades that one uses for stealth kills in the context of the game.  For display purposes I generally keep the gun hands on him - and since everything else is in storage at the moment (along with "Federova", the other figure from this line in my collection), he's currently on display accessory-free.



With gun and an optional left closed hand.
Not an easy pose for this figure to hold
Despite the fantastic details of the sculpt, this figure is not without its weaknesses, as it's a bit top heavy, making him a challenge to have him standing unassisted.  Additionally, the sculptural details of his vest and belt, while fantastic visually, limit his torso and hip movement, which also make certain poses a challenge.

Still, the level of detail really makes this figure shine, so I give the line top marks for that.
