Half-Life: Something about this Gordon Freeman action figure doesn't look like Gordon Freeman

Headcrab likeness is great though

TODO alt text

Despite this Gordon Freeman action figure from NECA ticking all the requisite feature-defining boxes, there's something not quite right about its 7" plastic homage to Valve's Half-Life hero. Have a look:

Glasses? Check. Goatee? Check. Crowbar? Check. HEV Suit? Check. Undeniably it's all there, but more in a passing resemblance sort of "hey that dude looks like Gordon Freeman" kind of way. It definitely seems too beefy-looking. That said, it has 20 points of articulation, two sets of interchangeable hands and comes with gravity gun and headcrab accessories and is consequently a cool piece of official paraphernalia.

Above: The headcrab likeness is spot-on (shame it's not Lamarr though)

The Gordon Freeman action figure will cost $18 and will be available at all retailers that sell such things from September.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
