Enterbay 1/6 Real Masterpiece Scarface War Version Preview

"Say Hello to my little friend!"

Scarface is a 1983 American epic crime drama movie directed by Brian De Palma, written by Oliver Stone, produced by Martin Bregman and starring Al Pacino as Tony Montana. A contemporary remake of Howard Hawks' original 1932 film of the same name, the film tells the story of Tony Montana, a Cuban refugee who comes to Miami in 1980 as a result of the Mariel Boatlift, and becomes a drug cartel kingpin during the cocaine boom of the 1980s. The movie chronicles his rise to the top of Miami's cocaine empire.

Al Pacino starred as Tony Montana, born in the 1940s, served as a soldier in the Cuban Army and was a prisoner in the 1970s for a series of unnamed criminal charges. Tony is one of the many 125,000 Cubans on the Mariel Boatlift to Miami in May 1980, one-fifth of whom has a criminal record.

From Enterbay will come this Real Masterpiece 1/6 scale Scarface War Version 12-inch figure of Al Pacino as Tony Montana from "Scarface"

Tony Montana (Al Pacino) uses a Colt AR-15 with a Fake M203 grenade launcher attached during the final battle. In one of the film's more memorable moments Tony yells out "Say hello to my little friend!" and blows a door down with a 40mm grenade, killing several of Sosa's men. Also of note is that he has two magazines taped together 'jungle style'. After expending his first two magazines, he inserts a single 30 round before the end.

The Fake M203 grenade launcher was custom made for use on the film and the firing pin has been removed to prevent the use of live rounds. The launcher was fabricated because the property master was unable to locate any live firing grenade launchers for production. He had this M203 grenade launcher hand crafted (not molded) by the studio prop department. The launcher was created with an extra large trigger guard and wider ribbing on the barrels than are found on the traditional M203 design.

Tony Montana: "You wanna go to war? We take you to war, ok?!!"

The film has since gathered a cult following and has become an important cultural icon (particularly in the hip hop community), inspiring posters, clothing, and many other references. The film's grainy black and white poster is a popular decoration and is still in production; as a result of its popularity it has been parodied many times.

Personally, I'm not too excited about this release :( Not too keen on this figure and the fact that it's by Enterbay doesn't excite me either. Chalk it down to bad experience and impressions.
