Wild Work THE FIVE ELEMENT

The Fifth Element is a 1997 science fiction film directed by Luc Besson, starring Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla Jovovich, Ian Holm, and Chris Tucker. Mostly set during the twenty-third century, the film's central plot involves the survival of humanity, which becomes the duty of a taxicab driver (and former special forces major) named Korben Dallas (Willis) when a young woman (Jovovich) falls into his taxicab. Upon learning of her significance, Korben must join efforts with the girl and a priest (Holm) to recover four mystical stones which are key to defending Earth from an impending attack of pure evil and destruction.

And coming soon from Wild Work, The Five Element LOLZ. The head sculpt looks nothing like Milla Jovovich as Leeloo, the "supreme being" and the fifth element (except the color of her hair)


Wild Work is trying to reproduce Leeloo's signature outfit in 1/6 scale but me thinks they have fallen far short and the quality looks piss poor IMHO




The only nice thing are the 1/6 boots


What's worse? Wild Work tried to reproduce Leeloo's other outfit

The result? BAD BAD BAD!!!

Why can't any manufacturer give us a good Milla Jovovich head sculpt and body. The body type used here is totally wrong and unsuitable for a Milla Jovovich as Leeloo bash

This Action Figure Box set will set you back US$99.99. Wouldn't want it even if it was for FREE. Just posted this for everyone to have a good laugh ;D

Disgusting ! Looks like first aid adhesive tape.

I agree that the figure should give a better face and body. It just doesn't worth that amount.

The toy is like someone (old lady) cosplaying the five element. :P

The head sculpt looks more like Toyah Wilcox from the 80s than Milla Jovovich.

They were always onto a loser in trying to recreate a Jean Paul Gaultier outfit, and it doesn't help that they've used completely wrong materials (for example, the orange strap is rubber, not leather).

Bro, I agree with you. Wild work doesn't have any sincerity to produce this figure. Just implant orange colour hairs to any female sculpts and quoted a price of US$100 per set. They think the collectors are stupid or what...

You clearly feel very strongly about getting a decent Milla figure. :)

thanks guys for all your support.

I especially liked LEon's comment "The toy is like someone (old lady) cosplaying the five element. :P" - Ha! Ha! my thots exactly

hey Bracken, U read my feelings well :) great admirer of Milla - haven't seen any decent HS of her that isn't with an over-the-top pricing

CHEERS

@ BigHatDino - you're so spot on with that Toyah Wilcox comparison (speechless) you must have an entire library of faces at your fingertips

My gf couldn't stop laughing see that photo... Ultimate fail!!!

Even Barbie Dolls have more class...

Hopefully there'll be decent Headsculpt of Milla, like the one done by Lalla...

the strap outfit would fit better on a HT true type body female, lol

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

hey Stanley, how's your collection coming along? I've been waiting for a decent Milla headsculpt at a most reasonable price for a while now, and still hoping :)

hi carlitox, i doubt any BODY can help or save this crappy outfit Ha Ha
