Review Brothers Production Presents 1/6th scale Final Mission 12-inch figure - Tom Cruise as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt in MI4: Ghost Protocol

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (also known as Mission: Impossible IV, or Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol) is a 2011 American action film, the fourth film in the Mission: Impossible series and stars Tom Cruise, who reprises his role of IMF Agent Ethan Hunt, and is director Brad Bird's first live-action film. Upon release, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol became a critical and commercial success, becoming the highest-grossing Mission: Impossible film, and the highest-grossing film starring Tom Cruise.

"Ghost Protocol" is a black operation contingency that disavows the IMF (Impossible Missions Force, fictional independent espionage agency). In so doing, Ethan and his team are to take the blame for the attack / bombing of the Kremlin, but will be allowed to escape from government custody in order to track down "Cobalt" the antagonist / villain.


This is the recently released Brothers Production Presents 1/6th scale Final Mission 12-inch figure which is most likely inspired by Tom Cruise as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt as seen in the 2011 film Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. The picture above is an attempt to replicate the shot used for the promotional posters for the film where Ethan (Tom Cruise) has his face obscured under a hood to stay hidden since there's an international manhunt out for him. Scroll down to see more pictures :)




The box packaging, as with all of Brothers Production's box packages, is nothing to write home about. Just a plain black elongated box with a sticker stuck on it. The picture below shows the basic figure found inside the box the moment you open it.


Brothers Production 1/6 scale Custom Hand Made FINAL MISSION figure is based on Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol. The basic figure comes dressed in black tee, leather-like black jacket with hood, brown pants and shoes / boots



This newer 12-inch figure body seems much better than the previously released ones which had pretty weak joints.


Check out the Brothers Production Presents Final Mission 12-inch figure 1/6th scale head sculpt


Does it resemble Tom Cruise? I think the likeness is quite good



And here's how the figure looks with the hood up




The black leather jacket is quite nicely done and fits the figure well


Other 1/6 scale accessories and items included with this Brothers Production Presents 1/6th scale Final Mission 12-inch figure: Black vest, climbing pants, special climbing gloves like the ones used in the film, socks and climbing shoes


Also included: alternate 1/6 scale head sculpt, black belt with buckle, wind goggles, gloves, laser glass cutter with pouch, walkie-talkie radio with pouch, utility pouch


The alternate Brothers Production Presents Final Mission 12-inch figure 1/6 scale head sculpt has the "hair swept back" look with eyes slightly looking to the side. Is it Tom Cruise? I can't imagine it being anyone else
