Incoming: Mivi 1/6 The Outsiders 12" Figure

This is another 1/6th scale 12-inch figure that will be released by Mivi. Earlier Mivi had given us a preview of their "Due Date" 12-inch figure of Ethan and his 1/6th scale dog Sonny (see the preview pictures HERE) and this latest figure is called "The Outsiders".

If you google "The Outsiders", you'll discover that "The Outsiders" was a 1983 American drama film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, an adaptation of the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. The film was released in March 1983. The film is noted for its cast of up-and-coming stars, including C. Thomas Howell (who garnered a Young Artist Award), Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio, and Diane Lane. The film helped spark the Brat Pack genre of the 1980s.

But unfortunately, Mivi's 1/6th scale 12-inch figure "The Outsiders" has got nothing to do with Patrick Swayze or any of the brat pack :(


Mivi 1/6th The Outsiders 12-inch Figure (300mm tall) will come with 1/6th scale Head sculpt, 12-inch Figure body, High school uniform (consisting of shirt + pants), leather jacket, Black T-shirt, Jeans, and Cloth (canvas) shoes. Accessories will include a diorama base with stand / pole for a boxing sandbag (punching bag), boxing gloves and necklace. Scroll down to see more pictures ;p




It seems nobody can figure out which film or who this figure is based on. Is he part of a gang or is he a loner? Not sure what Mivi's strategy is. It is quite hard to sell something that is not popular or famous.




You may pre-order this Mivi 1/6th scale The Outsiders 12-inch Figure from TFH (The Falcon's Hangar)

Apparently The Outsiders is a Taiwanese TV drama (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/The_Outsiders)
