Two peas in a pod!
Here are pictures of DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade J (stylized Jason Statham) and Spade 2 (animated Vinnie Jones) 12-inch figures standing side-by-side. Spade J (Jack of Spades, real name Ogier, Nelson's step brother) and Spade 2 (Nelson, dealing in drugs and guns in Rio) were released by DAM Toys under their new Gangsters Kingdom line but both bear a lot of resemblance to real life actors Jason Statham and Vinnie Jones respectively, even though they are rendered in a very caricature-like manner. The sculptured hands also match the head sculpts and they look really good (quality is top notch too!). Best part of it all is: they are value-for-money i.e. NOT expensive and easily affordable which is great when there are so many figures to choose from nowadays :)
IMHO this could be the line of the year for DAM Toys because this is something totally different from the usual line of military figures and military uniform sets being offered by 1/6 scale manufacturers OR the movie-related figures from Hot Toys, Play Imaginative and Sideshow Collectibles (mainly Star Wars). We've been bombarded by so many Iron Man figures from Hot Toys and Play Imaginative that some of us have become numb and jaded to the overkill. I'm just glad I'm not a hard core Iron Man fan / completist collector who must have everything that is Iron Man being offered - phew!

Spade J was reviewed earlier HERE, HERE and HERE
DAM Toys quality is very good here in terms of the stitching and tailoring of the fabric outfits and clothing plus accessories. The 12-inch figure bodies are nice and tight with no loose joints and the 1/6 scale head sculpts are really NICE
What I love about 1/6 scale figures is that you can easily strip them and put them in different clothing sets, and kitbash or customize them as a different characters altogether. I'm eager to put Spade J in a suit and transform him into animated Frank Martin the Transporter.
Spade 2 could just as easily be customized as Frank Castle the Punisher

What a fine pair they make. This dynamic duo will soon be joined by Spade 3 and the terrific trio they'll become ;p
Very pleased with these DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade J and Spade 2 12-inch action figures and I would highly recommend them to anyone
