Brother Production Hard-boiled "Harry" Review 1

Recently released by Brother Production, their custom-made 1:6 Hard-boiled Harry is obviously Clint Eastwood as San Francisco Police Department Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan. The film "Dirty Harry (1971)" did so well when it was screened that it spawned four sequels, "Magnum Force (1973)", "The Enforcer (1976)", "Sudden Impact (1983)" and "The Dead Pool (1988)". Clint Eastwood's iconic portrayal of the blunt, cynical, unorthodox detective who is seemingly in perpetual trouble with his incompetent bosses, set the style for a number of his later roles and, indeed, a whole genre of cop films.

Brother Production Hard-boiled "Harry" came with white long sleeve shirt and maroon colored striped tie, dark gray pants with belt and buckle, socks and "leather" shoes. Also included is a crimson red wool sleeveless vest, Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum revolver (resin), leather-like shoulder holster and hot dog (resin)

The sculpt and outfit are great, but I can't help but think that the sculpt could've been a little bit smaller? Be interesting to see him in the jacket, that might pull it all together :)

hi bighatdino, perhaps it's my photography skills or lack thereof as the figure is quite proportionate and does not have a big head :) also, he wears his pants rather high up his waist,unlike the fashion of today where many wear hipsters. check out the next post and let me know what you think

Nice work but I'm afraid the barrel on his model 29 is too long. Harry carried the 6.5 inch version not the 8 inch.
