REVIEW: Will Turner TCF

Img_5818

Background

The newest character from Tonner Doll’s officially licensed Pirates of the Caribbean Tonner Character Figure line is – Will Turner.  Portrayed by actor Orlando Bloom, the blacksmith’s apprentice/pirate is one of the three main characters from the Pirate’s trilogy.

With this figure, Tonner, having already released three different Elizabeth Swann TCFs and one Captain Jack Sparrow figure, completed the trio of swashbucklers (in pirate outfits).

Packaging

The Will Turner TCF is stowed away in the Pirates of the Caribbean themed rectangular Tonner packaging.  The figure is packed in there wearing a hair net, so if Orlando Bloom ever plays a lunch lady in a film…you’re all set.  As always, this figure is well packaged in a secure fashion.

Accessories include: soft tweed waist wrap; faux leather brown belt; faux leather brown sword holster; single hoop earring; Aztec gold medallion; resin sword; figure stand.

Our Opinion

I don’t know if photos of the initial face sculpt for the Will Turner TCF are out there, but he looked a little feminine…and not much like Orlando Bloom.  Well, Tonner went back to the drawing board and got it right.  Dare I say perfect?

This face sculpt might be the best in Tonner’s Pirates of the Caribbean line.  And I thought they did a pretty good job on the Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swann TCFs. 

Of course, the clothing is top of the line.  They look like a miniature replica of the actor’s actual outfit.  Which is obviously what they’d be gunning for.  But be careful with the resin sword as it might break if you put too much pressure on it. (I'd suggest not using it in any of your fruity adult cocktails)
