I haven’t watched The Truman Show in years, probably since it was released in movie theaters way back in 1998. The story about Jim Carrey’s Truman Burbank, a man living a life that is, unbeknownst to him, completely fabricated for a reality television show, ended up being insanely prescient about the nature of our entertainment and social media lives. The last thing I could imagine wanting is an action figure of Truman, but I’ll be damned if Present Toys hasn’t gotten me reconsidering that thought.
The sculptors and painters over at Present Toys have done an excellent job on the likeness for Jim Carrey. Carrey’s elastic facial expressions can sometimes be tricky to capture without venturing into caricature territory. While that might be fine for some of his roles, Truman Burbank is not one of those roles. Both portraits provided for the character promise to be restrained yet accurate and I hope they look as good in hand.
Otherwise, the figure isn’t much to talk about but that’s its strength. The character is supposed to be an unassuming Everyman and this figure captures that. Getting the tailoring and the likeness correct is all you need and Present Toys has nailed it, in my opinion.
