Mads Mikkelsen’s interpretation of iconic cannibal Hannibal Lechter was not only amazing on its own, but rivaled that of Anthony Hopkins’ famous take on the character. While the actor wasn’t able to continue the role beyond a few seasons of the Hannibal show, he now gets to be immortalized in 1:6 scale thanks to Present Toys.
Most reboots or sequels fail to hit the mark, especially when it comes to films that are remade for network television. While Silence of the Lambs still remains a classic movie thriller to this day, even film sequels like Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon paled in comparison. However, Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal, with Mads Mikkelsen as the titular character, was an outlier. The show was excellently done and not only rivaled the original film, but served as a great prequel to the story. Being able to place this figure beside one of Hopkin’s version is going to be exciting.
Present Toys has captured the character directly from the show, complete with Hannibal prepared for serving dinner. I love that they went with this look for him, which is spot on to a scene from an episode. Here’s hoping got other characters from the series, such as Will Graham!
