ART-FIGURES: SAVES 12-inch "Punisher: War Zone" Figure Preview

From Art-Figures comes this soon-to-be-released 12-inch figure (Product Name: SAVES, Release Date: 2010-10) with Authentic likeness and head sculpt of English actor Ray Stevenson as Frank Castle "The Punisher", 1/6 Body, Diorama Scene, M4A1 SOPMOD rifle W/sling adapter, SIG, M9, KBAR, OTB BOOTS, Flak Jacket, Black Knitwear, Black Trousers, Belt + Pistol Magazine, Military Gloves, White UNDERPants, White SOCKS, M4 Mag Pouch, SIG Mag Pouch(Holds 2). Officially sculpted by:L.J, Paint Art Directed by: L.J



"Punisher: War Zone" is a 2008 American comic book Action film directed by Lexi Alexander; based on the fictional Marvel Comics vigilante / anti-hero The Punisher. It is the 3rd film to depict Marvel Comics character of Frank Castle "The Punisher".


In the film, Castle wages a one-man war against a horribly disfigured mob boss known as Jigsaw (Dominic West).


And this ART-FIGURES: SAVES 12-inch "Punisher: War Zone" Figure comes complete with movie-accurate "Punisher" attire / outfit / costume plus weapons. Not as many as I would have liked but certainly enough to get the job done :) Adding 1/6 weapons to this Punisher's arsenal shouldn't be a problem at all.


If the actual final 1/6 headsculpt is as good as the prototype shown here, Art-Figures certainly have a winner here, as far as I'm concerned. The resemblance to Ray Stevenson is pretty spot on.


Then again, just for the outfit, get-up and gear alone is already value-for-money in my book. I'll take at least two please (many kitbash possibilities here ;>) and BLACK is always fashionable, unlike camouflaged outfits, which may be in fashion today but outdated tomorrow.


Check out the stuff on this guy, including the display stand - NICE!


Drool and double drool ;p---

hey Trav28, no news from my distributor too - will let you know when they post pre-orders

hi ethan, WL - outfit and gear is GREAT for kitbashing (lots of possibilities) altho I would have preferred more weaponry in his arsenal.

thanks ryudi for sharing, always glad to see a fellow collector's display. then i know i'm not alone and there are others like me out there CHEERS

I WANT this figure! :P The movie was awesome! And that headsculpt is fantastic! :D All though he does look a tad too sad. Maybe it's after he killed Nicky Donatelli. Who knows? :P Where was I again? Oh yeah; I WANT THIS! :D

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

hey alexander, it's supposed to be out in November :)

alexandermacqueen said...

Thanks for the heads up. :) Better start saving up now. Lol. I hope they make a Jigsaw figure too, so Punisher doesn't get lonely. ;D (All though, I know we're getting lucky just getting this figure. :D)
