Yet another 1/6 scale Bruce Willis 12-inch action figure. This is also another Bruce Willis as Detective John McClane figure from the Die Hard film series. "Live Free or Die Hard" (released as "Die Hard 4.0" outside North America), is a 2007 American action film, and the fourth installment in the Die Hard series.
The fourth film "Live Free or Die Hard" aka "Die Hard 4.0" was released in 2007, 12 years after the third film "Die Hard With a Vengeance (1995)" but still proved that Bruce Willis has what it takes to be an action hero :)
Brother Production Presents New York Detective "DIE HARD JOHNNY" is obviously an unlicensed 1/6 scale Bruce Willis as Detective John McClane 12-inch figure as he appeared in the fourth Die Hard movie and I think this is the best interpretation of the famous actor as John McClane by far.
Here's a screen shot of Bruce Willis as Detective John McClane as seen in "Live Free or Die Hard" aka "Die Hard 4.0" for comparison. As is his trademark by now, John McClane always starts off clean but comes off at the end of the movie looking bruised, dirty and worse for wear but still alive and kicking. Or as we say it in the toy world - "battle damaged" ;p He is after all, a foul-mouthed, wisecracking, no-nonsense New York cop with an itchy trigger finger and a never-say-die maverick spirit.

Subway had released a similar "Die Hard 4.0" 1/6 scale Bruce Willis as Detective John McClane 12-inch figure way back in 2008 (You can view the pictures HERE) but this latest version definitely comes closest to Bruce Willis' likeness and the whole outfit fits better and looks way better too.
There are so many 12-inch action figures that are based on Bruce Willis and the characters he play that I have a label just for him. And the current count is 25 blog posts / entries just on 1/6 scale Bruce Willis :) To see most of them together, check out my post "Will the real Bruce please stand up?"
