Just when you thought you have already seen what 1/6 scale civilian outfit you want to put on for Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon (see previous post), out pops another Inspector outfit from another 1/6 scale manufacturer / company with bonus head sculpt and 12-inch figure body - all these in two days (I only just saw this!)
PIRP Toys 1/6 scale Inspector Outfit Set also comes with Bonus 1/6 Head Sculpt & 12-inch Figure Body and is expected to arrive November 2012.
The PIRP Toys 1/6 scale Inspector Outfit Set includes: Glasses, Gray Raincoat, Gray long sleeve V-neck Sweater, Tie x 2 (crimson dotted and dark brown), Pants, Gray Wool Scarf, Dress Shirt x 2 (blue gray + striped), Belt, Socks, Shoes, Police Badge, Pistol, Holster and Cigarette. BONUS: Figure and Head Sculpt included free with purchase of this set. Scroll down to see more pictures and the link to pre-order this Police Inspector outfit set
There has been an ongoing debate in the forums as to what Gary Oldman as Lt James "Jim" Gordon actually wore in the Christopher Nolan Batman films. Some say the scarf, vest and jacket of this particular Inspector outfit set is wrong and that ZCWO got theirs right (see previous post) BUT that the tie is right here and the clothes seem to be better tailored with the police badge included.
I think once you plonk the Gary Oldman Jim Gordon head on, he looks just like the character from the Batman films. As a plains clothes Gotham City Police Department detective, I think Jim Gordon has more clothes that those seen in the movies and as long as he looks good in what he wears, who are we to question? Anyone who doesn't know better will take one look at the head sculpt and say,"Hey! That's Jim Gordon!"
So what do I think? Well, if you have the funds, buy both :) Mix and match till you get it the way you want Jim Gordon to be attired. All the loose bits can be used for kitbashing other figures; I've been doing that for years ;p Check out my stash HERE and that is also growing haha
The bonus 1/6 head sculpt looks a lot like Hot Toys Toy Fairs Exclusive "The Dark Knight" 1/6 Lt. Jim Gordon 12" Figure doesn't it? See pictures HERE
The 1/6 scale miniature glasses / spectacles are different from Hot Toys version though and looks to go into the side of his head under the hair.
