New from Heroic - Face Off (Preview)

"Face/Off" is a 1997 action film directed by John Woo, starring John Travolta as FBI Special Agent Sean Archer and Nicolas Cage as Freelance terrorist Castor Troy. The two are sworn enemies who assume the physical appearance of one another after undergoing an experimental surgical procedure to switch faces, hence "face OFF" but it also means "to face off with each other" - great play on words.

And now coming from Heroic, you get two faces for the price of one :)



Heroic 1/6 scale Castor Troy 12-inch figure from "Face/Off" will include a John Travolta as Sean Archer head sculpt as well as other goodies.


Castor Troy's (Nicolas Cage) weapons of choice are two gold titanium nitride plated Springfield Armory M1911-A1 V-10s fitted with custom gold inlaid grips, that he keeps in two small-of-the-back holsters.


1/6 scale Troy's custom in his small-of-the-back holsters for his custom Springfield Armory M1911-A1s


Since Archer has taken Castor's face,


Castor has no choice but to put on Archer's face.


I can see two figures to be had right here, with the two headsculpts and two outfits presented :)


The pill popping, chain smoking Castor Troy will have his 1/6 vices too, all nicely presented in a customized hand crafted case.


Heroic "Face Off" 1/6 scale Castor Troy figure will even come with the clergy's outfit of a full collar shirt and cassock (the long-sleeved, hoodless garment most often made of lightweight black fabric. Cassocks are generally ankle-length).

Keanu Reeves as Neo wore a similar outfit in "Matrix Reloaded". So many kitbash possibilities with this set.


Even comes with "spare" faces for the "face off"

It seems that the head sculpt of Nicholas is a way better than John..This is a nice figure anyway :P

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

yup desmond, this "Face Off" set is actually a "knock off" HS of Nicolas Cage by Soldier Story USMC Flame Thrower & John Travolta HS by Hot Toys Fireman lieutenant. Nic HS is much better CHEERS
