MIVI 1/6 scale Teddy Bear
Ted is a 2012 American comedy film directed, co-produced and co-written by Seth MacFarlane, with MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis in leading roles. The supporting cast included Joel McHale and Giovanni Ribisi.
The movie is about John Bennett (played by Mark Wahlberg) who as a result of a childhood wish, made his teddy bear, Ted, come to life and has been by his side ever since. However this friendship is tested when Lori (played by Mila Kunis), John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
Ted was an okay movie, those movies that you watch once and you don't crave to watch it again. However I did like the main character Ted, the carefree, weed-smoking and swearing teddy bear, basically what you would not expect from a teddy bear!
MIVI drawing inspiration from the movie has produced Teddy, a 1/6 scale Teddy Bear. This is one teddy that would fit nicely into my collection.
The packaging is pretty cool. The packaging looks like how you would present a piece of jewellery to your wife or girlfriend. They even tied a nice ribbon on it.
The sculpting is pretty good on this figure. Their attempt to create the soft texture like on a real teddy bear was a success. However it does remind me of those bear ornaments found in gift shops.
We are given 2 interchangeable heads. One is a happy look while the other is a more stressed out/ sad look of Ted. Both are done well.
The accessories are super limited. Besides the two heads, you get 2 red cloth aprons. Not sure why we get an extra identical red apron but without his name tag. Maybe they just wanted to give us a replacement whenever we need it.
The articulations are also limited on this figure. Only the head and two arms are articulated. A pity we don't have articulation in the legs so that we can pose him sitting down.
Also the joints at both the arms are slightly loose on my figure.
Imagine with a 1/6 scale sofa, a custom Mark Wahlberg and the ability for Ted to be displayed sitting down, you have one great display piece!
Overall a fun piece to have in any toy collection. For fans of the movie, this Mivi Teddy bear does fit the bill.
There is also another version of Ted from I Love u Teddy. It does look better and have more accessories but the price is also higher.
Ted ready for work
