He's supposed to be Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer), the leader of the renegade Nexus-6 replicants which "Blade Runner" Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) has to hunt down and "retire".

Of the many films Hauer has done, Blade Runner is his favorite. As he explained in a live chat in 2001, "BLADE RUNNER needs no explanation. It just IZZ [sic]. All of the best. There is nothing like it. To be part of a real MASTERPIECE which changed the world's thinking. It's awesome."

Leather-like futuristic coat with hidden wire for poseable collar

Newly-developed male body with tattoo prints

At the climax of the film, Roy Batty protectively cradles a pigeon. Brother Production's miniature pigeon will be made of resin. Word to the wise: Don't drop it since it's a "clay pigeon".

As Roy's life ends, he delivers a soliloquy on his life: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die."

This figure is meant to accompany the Brother Production 1/6 scale 12-inch "Blade Hunter" released in August 2009 and reviewed HERE

This is the best Roy Batty headsculpt so far. No company has ever been able to make a really good Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) so here's hoping these guys can do it! We've had great Blade Runner costumes and guns for 1/6 scale but that Harrison Ford is one tough guy to sculpt!
