Review 3: DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade 2 (Vinnie Jones) is packing heat

continued from previous post...

Finally! After reviewing the box and contents of DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade 2 12-inch figure HERE and then stripping him to his black t-shirt HERE, we get to see Nelson (Spade 2's other name) with his baseball jacket back on and carrying his Remington 870 Compact Shotgun, ready to hit the streets of Rio where he's running a business dealing in drugs and guns - that's what the box description says of this character, the second figure to be released under DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom series, the first figure being Spade J (Jack of Spades, real name Ogier, Nelson's step brother). You can check out the review of Spade J HERE


This Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale figure series by DAM Toys has been a most refreshing change from the usual offerings by other companies, either movie-related or military themed. It's always nice to see something different and although some companies try, they don't always get it right. Examples of NOT getting it right are Steam Factory's 1/6 scale Knight Captain Locke 12" Steampunk figure (previewed HERE) and CooModel's 1/6 scale Cowboy Skull Brothers Big Brother (with Movable eyes) - pictures HERE. I just don't get it haha




DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade 2 12-inch figure comes with a 1/6 scale head sculpt (which looks a lot like Vinnie Jones - albeit animated but still bearing a very GOOD likeness), 12-inch Action Figure body, sunglasses, Black T-shirt, Long Sleeve Tee (hooded sweater), Baseball Jacket, blue jeans, skateboarding shoes (one pair), interchangeable hands x 3 (2 + 1), Remington 870 Compact Shotgun, metal baseball bat, whiskey flask, whiskey flask carrier, Gold watch, Gold Necklace.


Here I've removed the hooded sweater (see my previous post with pictures of Spade 2 with just his sweater and baseball bat) and dressed him with just his black tee and baseball jacket


Love the embroidered picture on the back of his jacket showing the grim reaper Death playing baseball


DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade 2 12-inch figure cuts a mean side profile view as well


The 1/6 scale Remington 870 Compact Shotgun is very nice except that the six shotgun cartridges are loaded upside down and are non-removable so I couldn't take them out and reload them in the holder :(


Here's DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Spade 2 (Vinnie Jones) armed with his baseball bat and shotgun. You definitely do not want to mess with him ;p


Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures. Why so many? Because this guy is just too much fun to shoot and he looks good in every which way




More close-up views of Spade 2. Enjoy the pics :)

Damn, @lex, your attention to detail, background research, and knowledge of each figure's gear and weapons never ceases to amaze me which is one of the reasons why I enjoy reading your blog articles and reviews so much.

I wish you never mentioned the shells! lol Now I see that they are upside down all the time now.

That's two for two that DAM Toys has messed up the weapons/accessories in this line. Ogier's pistol was too small and his ankle holster wouldn't properly fit in his boot, his hat stains head and he doesn't come with hands that can hold his knife convincingly. Now this shotgun shell fiasco! Good thing the head sculpts and clothing more than make up for it!

Cheers,
Kaido

Thanks Kaido for the kind words :) I'm no expert myself and only try my best with what little I know haha

Totally agree with you that the head sculpts and clothing more than make up for the mistakes. Still one of the best lines this year.

Cheers
