This is the completed look for the Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale "God Complex: Hades" Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Figure which I had done a part one review in my last post. Having shown pictures of the packaging and contents previously, here's how Hades looks with his helmet, pistol and staff.
In Greek mythology, Hades is the brother of Zeus. After the overthow of their Father Cronus 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. Those whose calling increase the number of dead are seen favorably. He is the King of the dead but, death itself is another god, Thanatos.
In The "God Complex" universe created by Bryan Lie of Foxbox Studio, 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. Check out their site HERE for more information.
This is the second 1/6 scale figure to be released by Foxbox Studio after their initial release of the very limited (only 100 pieces were produced) "God Complex: Hermes" 12-inch figure (check out my reviews HERE and HERE) and going by their sequence of characters, the next one will be Inari and he looks just as cool as the rest of them :) They are all beautifully designed and not having human heads takes away the pain of having to achieve the life-likeness of the head sculpts. Plus these heads are way cooler ;p
Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale God Complex Hades Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Figure comes with a cool head with rather unique "helmet" which is attached via magnets, a cool all black suit with beautifully designed neck and shoulder armor plus a gun and a staff.
What's more to be said? Ultra Coolness :) You can tell I'm loving this figure, can't you? There have been too many military figures, too many cop and police figures, too many movie-related / licensed and unlicensed figures out in the market already so when a very unique figure comes along like this, I get very excited about it!
Scroll down to see more turnaround views and pictures of this very fine Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale "God Complex: Hades" Limited Edition 12-inch Collectible Figure that is pretty awesome indeed.
Like I mentioned earlier, the staff isn't just a staff ;p It's rather unique and you'll just have to find that out in the next post when I reveal more...
