This is HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure fully dressed with the navy blue jacket, white and blue plaid shirt and carrying the brown Leather-like bag. I had covered the box packaging and contents in the previous post with close-up pictures of the 1/6 scale realistic head sculpt that bears a very good likeness and resemblance to Bruce Willis who plays John McClane in all the Die-Hard films as well as the new Narrow shoulder muscle PVC and ABS body. You can check out HPC Toys on FB and tell them you LIKE their page HERE.
This is what John McClane (Bruce Willis) was seen wearing when he arrived in Moscow, Russia to help out his son Jack McClane as seen in the latest Die-Hard film, "A Good Day to Die Hard", the fifth installment in the Die Hard film series. One of the consistent elements of the Die-Hard films is that John McClane starts off with a set of clean clothes and by the end of the movie, he loses most of his clothes and needless to say, what remains are no longer clean ;p
So here's HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure fully dressed with the navy blue jacket, white and blue plaid shirt over white t-shirt / vest, Brown pants, Black suede leather shoes and carrying the brown Leather-like bag. He also comes with a pistol (also covered in great detail in the previous post)
The 1/6 scale clothes all fit John McClane (Bruce Willis) nicely and are well stitched / tailored.
This figure comes with two Extra hands (4 hands in Total): two pistol gripping hands (left and right), one right hand for grasping / holding his bag and a left relaxed hand / palm.
The pictures show 12-inch John McClane (Bruce Willis) holding the bag in his right hand with pistol in his left hand (Bruce Willis is left-handed and uses his left hand to fire weapons in most of the films he stars in)
In the first Die Hard movie, McClane carries a Beretta 92F as his duty weapon. In the next two, his service pistol is a Beretta 92FS, even though the NYPD has never issued the Beretta 92 for duty use. He later uses a Sig P220 as his duty gun in the fourth and 5th movies of the series. I'm not sure what type of gun / pistol HPC Toys has included with their "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure set but it's very detailed and even comes with a 1/6 scale slide release lever on the pistol (see my post HERE for the close-up pictures)

When Die Hard was released in 1988 it changed the way action movies were made. Normally the star of the movie was either a muscled guy (Arnie, Sly), skilled in Martial Arts (Seagal, Norris) or both (Van Damme, Lundgren). Then Bruce Willis came, fresh of the TV-show Moonlighting in a movie depicting an everyday cop who gets caught in a terrorist takeover of an office building. He alone must try to stop the terrorists and save his wife. The result was a blockbuster movie that redefined the face of action. (source: The legacy of "Die Hard")
Action films would no longer require guys who have been working out 24/7, killing tons of 1-dimensional villains played by b-actors, while spouting one liners and not getting a scratch themselves. Now every Joe the Plumber out there could stand up against mercenaries and save the day.

Personally, I much prefer this Bruce Willis head sculpt to the one that Hot Toys released with their G.I. Joe Retaliation Joe Colton Collectible Figure (see the preview pictures HERE)
In "A Good Day to Die Hard", Jack McClane (Jai Courtney) hands John McClane (Bruce Willis) a Remington 870 police entry shotgun with an M4-type stock, Surefire dedicated forend weaponlight and saddle shell holder in the elevator to the ballroom.
I just had to re-enact a screen grab I saw of John McClane (Bruce Willis) with a Remington 870 police entry shotgun, holding it in his left hand.
As I said before, I highly recommend getting HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure. It's definitely value-for-money with its high quality stitching and detailing :)
For purchasing the figure the best way is to buy it from HPC Toys directly on FB (link HERE).
