Review 1: AX2 "Boom!" Series Collection #2 1/6 scale Rei (prototype clone) 12-inch action figure

REI Backstory by AX2:
He is the key to cloning, he is seeking for his path... his name is Rei. In the storyline, Rei, the main character, is the first clone experiment and he is the only clone soldier survived after the civil war with his own kind. He then became the key for cloning, and was hunted for such reason.

This is the just released AX2 "Boom!" Series Collection #2 1/6th scale Rei (prototype clone) 12-inch action figure. According to their facebook page, AX2 Studio is a start-up art production studio based in Los Angeles, California. If you want to know the backstory of BOOM! Series, you can check out AX2 blog page HERE. "Boom!" Series Collection #1 was the P.D.B. Armor and Rei. P.B.D Armor stands for Purified Brain Device Armor. It is an armor designed to maintain the stability of clone soldiers' mind, which avoids them endanger their length of life from losing their mind after massive killing. You can check out the pictures HERE. Boom! P.B.D Armor & Rei was sold to an anonymous collector. Only one piece was produced.

Due to the overwhelming response, AX2 decided to produce and release "Boom!" Series Collection #2 1/6 scale Rei (prototype clone) 12-inch action figure. I really like this figure. There's a certain anime / manga vibe about him and I'm a fan of stylized head sculpts as well as figures from the post-apocalyptic era or theme. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures and what this figure comes with :)

Packaging is the standard shoe-box design type with a very nice illustration of Rei on one side of the lid cover.

Remove the lid / cover and you get to see Rei in the top tray with a pair of extra gloved hands

The bottom tray holds AX2 "Boom!" Series Collection #2 12-inch Rei's 1/6 scale accessories: one huge gun, two swords and additional pair of shoes (exclusively for the first 100 pre-orders)

"Boom!" #2 Rei Instruction Sheet and certificate of authenticity

Here's Rei out of the box and without his jacket. He wears a white short sleeve T-shirt with black sleeves sewn on to give the impression of having a double layered outfit. He also wears three-quarter pants, gloves and shoes.

Scroll down to see the turnaround views :)

The back of the T-shirt bears the AX2 company's logo

Look what Rei has attached to a chain and secured to his pants

Looks like a wallet ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

12-inch Rei's 1/6 scale accessories include: two swords, one huge gun with sling, extra pair of gloved hands and additional pair of shoes with laces (exclusively for the first 100 pre-orders)

Handcrafted gift only available for the first 100 pre-orders :)

Majorly influenced by 3A Tomorrow King, no?

But the execution looks fantastic!
