In Greek mythology, Hades is the brother of Zeus. After the overthow of their Father Cronus and the Titans, he drew lots with Zeus and Poseidon, another brother, for shares of the world. He had the worst draw and was made lord of the underworld, ruling over the dead. He is a greedy god who is greatly concerned with increasing his subjects.
Foxbox Studio will soon be releasing their second God Complex 1/6 scale figure after having sold out on their first figure - Hermes (reviewed earlier HERE and HERE). This time it's going to be Hades 12-inch collectible figure.
Some background info from their site: Hellenic region is separated into three power groups and they are led by the three sibling Rulers. Zeus leads the energy company, Acropolis, Inc, Poseidon runs the maritime corporation, Aegae, and Hades is the figurehead of the largest criminal organization in Hellenic Republic, Tartarus.
While he is not exactly malevolent, Hades along with trusted gun, Cerberus II, strike mortal fear into people's hearts because Hades is not bound by any laws. Neither the Rulers' nor humans' rules meant anything to him. He judges based on his own creed and justice.
Hades is not officially a member of Acropolis, Inc, yet he plays a big part during the company's golden age. However, entering the iron age, Hades is seen to be moving further away from his brothers.
His motivation is shrouded in mystery. Nobody really knows what his plans with the humans are or which side he is on. Albeit his complex relationship with the big twelve of Acropolis, he has a relatively close affiliation with Hermes.
Check out how the helmet opens up to reveal the eyes / eye sockets - uber COOL!!!
This one's going to be another WINNER for sure! Foxbox Studio is certainly producing some very fine figures that are out of the ordinary and exceptional in their design. Kudos to the designer and production team working on these
Pre-orders will be available in January 2012 so look out for it here.
