I was absolutely blown away by the quality of this figure. Fully articulated yet the joints are hardly noticeable. The amount of detail on the figure is out of this world. It was like they took Scarlet Johansson and shrunk her down. This figure cost twice what I normally pay for a 12" figure. It's definitely not a mere toy, it's a collectable. Saying a Hot Toys figure is like a toy is like saying a Picasso painting is just a picture.
This made me think it would be interesting to see someone come out with Tron-themed ball-joint dolls... actually, I'd think they'd be easy enough to make for someone who's into them, as long as you could find or make appropriate clothing (which wouldn't be hard, since judging from the programs at the EOL club, the "look" in the Grid seems to run toward techno-punk, and ball-joint dolls tend to run toward goth and punk fashions), considering a lot of people fully customize these types of dolls with face, wig, clothing, etc. They'd be uber-awesome if done right...
