Review Asmus Toys 1/6 scale 007 The BOND suit for 12-inch Figure - Daniel Craig Skyfall?

continued from previous post...

Daniel Wroughton Craig (born 2 March 1968) is an English actor, best known for playing British secret agent James Bond since 2006. Craig achieved international fame when chosen as the seventh actor to play the role of James Bond, replacing Pierce Brosnan. Though he was initially greeted with scepticism, his debut in Casino Royale was highly acclaimed and earned him a BAFTA award nomination, with the film becoming the highest-grossing in the series at the time. Quantum of Solace followed two years later. His third Bond film, Skyfall, premiered in 2012 and is now the highest-grossing film in the series.

In Skyfall, the film opens in Istanbul, where we see MI6 agents James Bond and Eve Moneypenny chase a mercenary, Patrice, who has stolen a computer hard drive containing details of undercover agents placed in terrorist organisations by NATO states. Bond is not in his usual tuxedo but is seen wearing a silver / grey suit instead.

This is the Asmus Toys 1/6 scale 007 The BOND suit for 12-inch Figure which comes with silver jacket, silver pants, fashion styled shirt, patterned tie, silver watch, leather belt and black shoes. This particular suit seems most appropriate for the ZCWO 1/6 scale Articulate Body AB02 which comes with the Daniel Craig looking head sculpt (reviewed in my toy blog post HERE).

The packaging has all the above-mentioned items kept sealed in a plastic bag. Here's how the 1/6 scale clothes look on the ZCWO AB-02 12-inch figure. I haven't put on the jacket yet as I wanted to show how he looks with just the shirt and pants on.

Close-up pictures taken of the Asmus Toys 1/6 scale 007 The BOND suit fashion styled shirt and patterned tie.

I was pleasantly pleased that this wasn't just a plain white shirt but this 1/6 scale shirt actually has patterns on it. I like the cut and fitting too.

This is the 1/6 scale silver watch that is included. The less said, the better.

And here's how debonair 1/6 scale Daniel Craig looks with the Asmus Toys 007 The BOND suit for 12-inch Figure. NOTE: The pistol is NOT included with the set but something I have and added for the complete look.

James Bond is just NOT complete without his Walter PPK

We always see James Bond in a tuxedo so it's nice and refreshing to see him wearing something else for a change ;p
