Review II: Figure Club 1/6 Mad Cop 12" figure is Stansfield from "Léon: The Professional"?

continued from previous post...

If you already own a 1/6 scale Jean Reno as Léon: The Professional 12-inch hitman figure like me - check out my post HERE, you would be looking out for a Gary Oldman as corrupt DEA agent Stansfield figure to partner Léon on the display shelf / cabinet :) Well, Figure Club has just recently released a Mad Cop 12-inch figure which must have been inspired by Gary Oldman's Stansfield character in the movie.

In the beginning of the film, Mathilda's (Natalie Portman's debut role) father (Michael Badalucco) attracts the ire of corrupt DEA agents, who have been paying him to store cocaine in his residence, after they discover that he has been stealing some of the drugs for himself. They give him a chance to come clean. He doesn't. The next day, they storm the building and kill everyone inside the apartment!


Stansfield (Gary Oldman): I like these calm little moments before the storm. It reminds me of Beethoven. Can you hear it? It's like when you put your head to the grass and you can hear the growin' and you can hear the insects. Do you like Beethoven?
Malky: I couldn't really say.




Norman Stansfield (Gary Oldman) uses an Ithaca 37 with a tactical flashlight mounted on the pump fore-end, and fitted with a pistol grip when raiding Mathilda's (Natalie Portman) house. Malky (Peter Appel) also uses an Ithaca 37 with an extended magazine tube.


Stansfield dances through Mathilda's house while playing Beethoven in his head, armed with an Ithaca 37 with a pistol grip and tactical flashlight.


Stansfield: You don't like Beethoven. You don't know what you're missing. Overtures like that get my... juices flowing. So powerful. But after his openings, to be honest, he does tend to get a little fucking boring. That's why I stopped!
[laughs and sighs]
Stansfield: Toss the apartment.


Here's another look at the Figure Club 1/6 scale Mad Cop head sculpt. You can see more pictures of the head sculpt in the previous post :)



Here's a close look at the 1/6 scale Figure Club Mad Cop's pump action shotgun


Is there another 1/6 scale Gary Oldman as Norman Stansfield head sculpt out there? You'll have to check my NEXT POST to find out ;p
