1:6 Kitbash Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb 12-inch figure

Inception is a 2010 science fiction action heist film, written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film features an ensemble cast starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Dileep Rao, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a professional thief who specializes in conning secrets from his victims by infiltrating their dreams. [source: wiki]


This is the Nobody Toys "Dreamcatcher" 1:6 scale head sculpt which IMHO has the BEST likeness of Leonardo DiCaprio so far. There's no 12-inch body or figure, just the head but what a head it is. This "Dreamcatcher" headsculpt by Nobody Toys is way aHEAD of the others and the resemblance to the actor is amazing.

And this is a promotional poster for "Inception" with Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb, the Extractor.


And these are more close-up pictures of the stunning Nobody Toys "Dreamcatcher" 1:6 scale head sculpt of Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb, who is offered a chance to regain his old life in exchange for an almost impossible task: "inception", the planting of an idea into a target's subconscious.


And no, you are not dreaming this. "Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange." But this is as real as it gets.


To quote Dom Cobb: "I think positive emotion trumps negative emotion every time."

Hey Alex - what suit are you using for this? Looks nice!

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

Hi Brian, I believe this suit was from Saturday Toys "Men in suits" series. They had released this suit with a William Fichtner head sculpt.

You can check out my post at http://toyhaven.blogspot.com/2008/12/william-fichtner-as-gotham-national.html for the other suit as well CHEERS

Hi Alex..

Nice suit.. Excellent Bash.. Are the shoes also included in the "Men in suits" set? Btw.. What lens are you using for your 1/6 figures? Should I pick one (lens), what lens should I choose, a 35mm prime lens or a 50mm prime lens? I'm using a nikon d5000 camera.. Thanks so much..

Hi Marq

The Saturday Toys "Men in suits" series came complete with figure and shoes as well.

As for the camera I use, it's the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3. I found a site with a full review: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/TZ3/TZ3A.HTM

I have to apologize as I'm not good at all with cameras and lenses. According to the site, it says that the camera has 10x optical zoom lens (equivalent to a 28-280mm lens on a 35mm camera). I do enjoy taking pictures of my action figures and the camera I have seems adequate enough. I really don't know what to look for in a camera :(
