DAM Toys surprised everyone when they first released pictures of their upcoming new line of Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale figures with Spade J who looked a lot of an animated Jason Statham 12-inch figure (check out my earlier post HERE)
Well, DAM TOYS has just released preview / prototype pictures of their second 1/6 scale Gangsters Kingdom figure which they are calling Spade 2 (GK002#) and he looks a lot like Vinnie Jones! Vincent Peter "Vinnie" Jones (born 5 January 1965) is a British actor and former professional footballer.
DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 Spade 2 12-inch figure will come with 1/6 scale head sculpt, 12-inch Action Figure body, sunglasses, Black T-shirt, Long Sleeve Tee (hooded sweater), Baseball Jacket, blue jeans, skating board shoes (one pair), interchangeable hands x 3, Remington 870 Compact Shotgun, metal baseball bat, whiskey flask, whiskey flask carrier, Gold watch, Gold Necklace.
Well you certainly don't want to mess with Vinnie (DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom Spade 2) because Jones was renowned for his "hard man" image during his playing days. He was sent off 12 times in his career, as well as holding the record for the quickest ever booking in a football match, being booked after just three seconds for a foul on the opposition player Dane Whitehouse in a Premier League tie between Chelsea and Sheffield United in 1992.

Vinnie Jones made his 1998 feature film debut in Guy Ritchie's "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" alongside Jason Statham. The film brought Guy Ritchie international acclaim and introduced actors Vinnie Jones, a former Welsh international footballer, and Jason Statham, a former street merchant and men's wear model, to worldwide audiences. Jones later starred in Guy Ritchie's next blockbuster "Snatch" as Bullet-Tooth Tony. Jason Statham was in that one too, along with Brad Pitt.
I just love the artist who sculpted the two head sculpts for Spade J (Jason Statham) and Spade 2 (Vinnie Jones). You can tell right away who the characters are supposed to be even though they are done in caricature style.
Check out that head sculpt - AWESOME!!!
I can't wait to get my hands on these two DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade 12" figures. They are just one of the beautiful things to come out this year for 12-inch figure collectors. And the best part is, they are NOT pricey like Hot Toys customized series of figures which cost more than even their movie licensed figures. I just don't get that!
Check out that baseball jacket - DEATH baseball!

Medicom Toys had released a 12-inch GANG figure who also wielded a baseball bat some time back: Kai from the Saru gang in the anime series "Tokyo Tribe 2". You can check out the pictures HERE
