Duke Togo is a professional assassin (just like Luc Besson's Leon). Most of his jobs are completed through the use of a customized, scoped M16 rifle. Duke's alias ("Golgo 13") is short for Golgotha, the place of Jesus Christ's crucifixion. (source: Wiki)
This is SKYNET's (same name as the famous skynet in the Terminator movies) first limited edition "A Real Japanese Hero - Golgo 13 Duke Togo" 12" action figure which I was able to get my hands on in 1999. Package comes with one 12" Duke Togo wearing black shirt, maroon tie, grey jacket and trousers, and includes an M16A2 assault rifle plus Golgo special attache case.
The head sculpt is quite good as it is accurate and true to the manga/anime
Until it is opened to reveal a weapon's case revealing a stripped M16 assault rifle with sharpshooter's scope (that is the beauty of this set - at that time i.e. 1999, there wasn't any 1/6 scale stripped M16 that could be assembled)
The stripped M16 assault rifle parts with sharpshooter's scope laid out, ready for assembly. It consists of rifle butt, scope, top receiver with rear sight, bolt carrier group, bottom receiver (trigger mechanism), two 20-round magazines, rifle barrel with front sight and hand guard.
Partially assembled M16 assault rifle - note the two swivel pins, just like the real mcCoy
News that Hot Toys will be releasing their version of Golgo 13 with his rifle case is GREAT news indeed!
