Hot Toys Aldo Raine & Hans Landa from "Inglourious Basterds"

"Inglourious Basterds" is a 2009 war film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Brad Pitt, Mélanie Laurent, Christoph Waltz, Eli Roth and Diane Kruger. The film tells the fictional story of two plots to assassinate the Nazi Germany political leadership during the Second World War, one planned by a young French Jewish cinema proprietor (Laurent), and the other by a team of Jewish Allied soldiers led by First Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Pitt).

And since the release of Hot Toys MMS134 (Movie Masterpiece Series) 1/6th scale Col. Hans Landa Collectible Figure with Christoph Waltz likeness from the "Inglourious Basterds" movie (see previous post), I just had to take pictures of the two 1/6 scale figures from the film released by Hot Toys.

What a fine pair these two make!

I've already covered on the Hot Toys 1/6 scale 12-inch Standartenführer (Colonel) Hans Landa figure in my previous posts, with his SS Officer peak cap, German Grey Field officer blouse with the single-oakleaf tabs on both collars, and Colonel Shoulder Tabs plus awards and decorations, black trench coat, Officer riding breeches, General Officer leather belt and tall knee high black leather-like boots.

And this is Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Series MMS118 "Inglourious Basterds" 1/6th scale Lt. Aldo Raine Collectible Figure with the Brad Pitt headsculpt in full resistance fighter gear, with all his accessories and weapons. I've already reviewed this 12-inch figure HERE and HERE

These are the only shots I have of LT. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) wearing his cap and carrying all his gear, accessories and weapons (a lot more stuff than what Hot Toys Col. Hans Landa came with)

Close-up of Hot Toys Lt. Aldo Raine Collectible Figure with very good likeness of Brad Pitt

Towards the end of the film...
Lt. Aldo Raine: [Aldo shoots Hans' driver Hermann, and gives Utivich a knife] Scalp Hermann.
Col. Hans Landa: Are you mad? What have you done? I made a deal with your general for that man's life!
Lt. Aldo Raine: Yeah, they made that deal, but they don't give a fuck about him. They need you.
Col. Hans Landa: You'll be shot for this!
Lt. Aldo Raine: Nah, I don't think so. More like chewed out. I've been chewed out before.

Aldo takes out his classic American Bowie knife from the hard leather sheath...
Lt. Aldo Raine: I'm gonna give you a little somethin' you can't take off.
[After he carves the swastika on Hans forehead]
Lt. Aldo Raine: You know somethin', Utivich? I think this just might be my masterpiece.
