This is HPC Toys second project: Film Series 002 1/6 scale "Jail Hero". I have already posted a first-part review of the box packaging and contents with detailed pictures and close-up views HERE and now for the second-part review, we just have to see how the figure looks with his prison shirt on. In the action movies, it's usually the other way around i.e. he comes in with full wardrobe and wears less and less clothes as the film progresses, a formula made successful by Die-Hard where the everyday cop (Bruce Willis as John McClane) gets caught in a terrorist takeover of an office building and must try to stop the terrorists and save his wife all by himself.
Interestingly enough, John McClane from Die-Hard 5 "A Good Day to Die Hard" was HPC Toys first figure released. Reviews of HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure posted in my toy blog earlier HERE and HERE :)
HPC Toys Film Series 002 1/6 scale "Jail Hero" 12-inch collectible figure is wearing the blue prison shirt over his white tank top and blue jeans with black belt. He also has on a pair of black suede leather boots. He is armed with a 1/6 scale Browning Hi Power 9mm pistol with slide release lever which is the safety that blocks the trigger when the hammer is back. Scroll down to see more pictures
As covered in the previous post, the white bunny is the only thing Cameron Poe (Nicolas Cage) has to connect him with the real world where he longs to be reunited with his wife and daughter whom he has never seen, having been sent to prison for eight years for killing a man who was threatening his then pregnant wife who was carrying his child. All these events are recored in the 1997 film "Con Air" on which this 12-inch figure is based upon.

And here's a picture taken of HPC Toys Film Series 002 1/6 scale "Jail Hero" 12-inch figure (left) standing side-by-side with HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure (right). These are very nice figures and are highly recommended if you are into movie-related figures.
