Toysheadquarters Vol:003 1/6 Fighter with causal wear PREVIEW

This will be Vol:003 1/6 scale Fighter with causal wear 12-inch figure by Toysheadquarters, scheduled for January 2012 release (that's any day now). Product will include: 1/6 scale head, Red Jacket, black vest / tank-top, blue Jeans and black shoes / sneakers (non boot-feet type). NOTE: The 12-inch figure Body will NOT be included!

The 12-inch figure is based on Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden, a soap salesman who befriended Edward Norton in the 1999 American film "Fight Club" based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk. The Narrator finds that bare-knuckle brawling makes him feel more alive than he has in years, and soon the two become friends and roommates, meeting informally to fight once a week. As more men join in, the "fight club" becomes an underground sensation, even though it's a closely guarded secret among the participants.

This isn't the first figure to be inspired by the film "Fight Club". There was the Brother Production Fighting Club "Tayler" 12-inch figure released in last year (see my REVIEW & PICTURES). The outfit by Brother Production is more authentic and movie-accurate then this release by Toys Headquarters. Brother Production also offered more accessories, including hands with Tyler's rings.

Do note that this set does not include the 12-inch body which is shown here just to model the clothes that come with this FIGHTER set

THe 1/6 scale Brad Pitt head sculpt by Toysheadquarters looks more like a young Colin Ferrel or even a cross between Brad Pitt with Giovanni Ribisi OR as a goofy kid brother version of Pitt. In terms of likeness it could also pass as an in-between of Edward Norton and Brad Pitt.

Loading Toys also released a Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden head sculpt late last year as part of a two-pack head sculpt set that included a 1/6 scale Edward Norton head as well. You can check out the pictures HERE
