Royce: "This planet is a game reserve. And we're the game."
This is my third part review of the Hot Toys MMS "Predators" Royce 1/6 scale collectible 12-inch figure. Royce (Adrien Brody) carries an AA-12 automatic 12 Gauge shotgun throughout the movie. The AA-12 is fitted with a drum magazine loaded with Frag-12 rounds, as well as a Surefire M900 weapon tactical light foregrip. Before this "Predators (2010)" movie, I didn't even know that this gun existed. Now we are all the wiser for it.
Having seen this Hot Toys Royce wielding the smaller weapons like the two edged weapons / blades (1:6 scale combat knife and machete) he comes with as well as the modified M1911 pistol in the previous post, here's how he looks with the AA-12 shotgun.
This is a 1/6 scale Aitchisson Assault Shotgun or AA-12 automatic 12-Gauge shotgun. It is a shotgun that thinks it's a machine gun. Originally designed in 1972 and perfected around 2007 it has practically zero recoil and will fire a wide variety of ordnance (high explosive, etc) at a rate of 350 rounds a minute. It's in use with various law enforcement agencies and Special Forces but is not available to the wider public.
This Hot Toys 1/6 scale AA-12 comes with a removable drum magazine and rifle sling. Everything else is pretty much attached.

Another close view of the Hot Toys 1/6 scale AA-12 shotgun (this time it's the left side of the weapon). Comes with a removable drum magazine. Also check out Royce's wrist watch. During Dragon Models DML reign, they almost always included a watch with the figure they were releasing. Hot Toys followed suit with their military figures but that novelty has since passed.
Royce: "We're being hunted. The cages, soldier, all of us. We were all brought here for the same purpose. This planet is a game preserve, and we're the game. In case you didn't notice, we just got flushed out. They sent the dogs in. Just like you would if you were stalking boar, shooting quail. They split us apart and they watched. Testing us."

Isabelle: "What happened to you? What made you so fucked up?"
Royce: "There is no hunting like the hunting of a man. And those who've hunted armed men long enough, and like it, never really care for anything else thereafter."
