Pop Toys presents X09 of Style Series – 1/6 scale Master Ninja Suit with Henri Ducard head

This will be POPTOYS next release - Pop Toys X09 of Style Series 1/6 scale Master Ninja Suit (Suit Pattern). The “style series” is a series of 1:6 scale action figure, which is characterized with exquisite tailoring and workmanship. “X” in the logo represents a pair of scissors. At the same time, it is the first letter in Pinyin of Chinese character “Xing”, which means style.

This Pop Toys presents X09 of Style Series – 1/6 scale Master Ninja Suit (Suit Pattern) will come with a 1/6 scale Head sculpt, Black Suit (Jacket and pants), Purple Shirt, Leather Belt, Black Tie, Black Shoes, Visor/ Mask, Walking stick with concealed blade / knife, Gloved Hands x 3. Note: body in the picture is not included. Body in the picture is Hot Toys’ narrow shoulders male body.

In the 2005 superhero film "Batman Begins" based on the fictional DC Comics character Batman, co-written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Liam Neeson is Henri Ducard: A mysterious man who trains Bruce Wayne in the martial arts. Initially posing as a subservient member of the League of Shadows, an organization led by Ra's al Ghul, it is later revealed that he is Ra's al Ghul himself who used the name "Ducard" as a pseudonym to hide his true identity.

Here's Henri Ducard wearing the gas mask to protect himself just as the League of Shadows prepares to vaporize the city's toxin-riddled water supply, making it airborne and creating mass hysteria and violence.

Liam Neeson has been a Jedi Knight in George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, ex-CIA agent in the "Taken" films (check out my kitbash of Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills HERE), Zeus in "Clash and Wraith of the Titans", Admiral Shane in "Battleship", John "Hannibal" Smith in "The A-Team" and Aslan in "Narnia"

This looks pretty good. The suit is nice and the head sculpt of Liam Neeson as Henri Ducard does bear the actor's likeness and the resemblance is quite close.

HoT Toys never did release any Liam Neeson as Henri Ducard / Ra's al Ghul 12-inch figure so this will certainly make a nice addition to complete any Batman collection.

The suit looks great, but I really dig the gloves.
