2007 Toy Awards: Best 1/6 Scale Figure – Male

We decided to divide the 1/6 scale category into two - male and female figures.  A battle of the sexes, if you will.  A lot of you might be thinking to yourself (or shouting at your computer screen): "What does 1/6 scale mean!?!"  You'll see...

#5. Spider-Man TCF from Tonner

While a number of companies could have gotten away with placing a blank body within the Spider-Man suit...not Tonner.  They went all out and included the Toby Maguire sculpt underneath the mask.

#4. Bespin Luke Skywalker from Sideshow

Sideshow's Star Wars line is a definite favorite of collectors.  And who wasn't excited to see they'd be packaged Luke's severed stump of an arm with the Bespin figure?

#3. Jango Fett from Medicom

Jango

There were a few bright spots in the prequel Star Wars trilogy, and Jango Fett was definitely one of them.  Medicom's done a great job with the outfit, accessories and the head sculpt underneath the helmet.

#2. Boba Fett from Medicom

Back to back Fett's from Medicom.  They were both quality figures, but we gave Boba Fett the edge because we're fans of the originals.

#1. Captain Jack Sparrow TCF from Tonner - Winner!!

Disney has released a boatload of licensed Pirates of the Caribbean toys.  But Tonner's line stands out in both quality and attention to detail.  An amazing piece and our favorite figure of 2007.

I have to disagree with this one. The Tonner Jack is not nearly the best 12" Jack. The Hot Toys Jack is way better, and neither of them come close the awesomeness of that Medicom Boab Fett. But I have to say the best 1/6 figure of last year was the Enterbay 1/6 Scale Real Masterpiece Jet Li Fearless Action Figure. It's $250 dollars but it's simply amazing!

Aren't the Tonner dolls 17" figures? Doesn't 1/6 scale mean a 12" figure representing a 6' tall human? (sorry, had to say it)

They're 1/6 scale if the people are 8 feet tall. I was actually going to add something about them not 'truly' being 1/6 scale. (It's actually in the upcoming female blurb) And I didn't want to create another category called best 17/72 scale figure.

I agree that the Medicom Boba Fett was great (even though mine had a broken antenna on the helmet). But they aren't 12" tall either (a little shorter). Which is somewhat annoying if you display them next to the Sideshow figures.

I haven't seen the Jet Li figure up close, so I'll have to take your word for it.

That's why I can only judge things I've actually seen. We've all been burnt too many times by seeing a Photoshopped image of a figure that looks great and then you get it and it's junk.
