Review MC Toys 1/6 scale Snow Space set – DiCaprio as "Dom" Cobb in Inception snow scene

Leonardo DiCaprio fails to win Oscar once again!

Many had hoped that the 39-year-old actor would finally get his first Oscar almost 20 years after he was first nominated. However, Matthew McConaughey was throughout the frontrunner for the best actor Oscar for his turn in Dallas Buyers Club and finally went home with the prized statuette. DiCaprio was nominated for his portrayal of financial crook Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street".

You could say Leo was left out in the cold >_< which brings to mind the snow scene in the 2010 British-American science fiction heist thriller film "INCEPTION" written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film stars a large ensemble cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Dileep Rao, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, and Michael Caine. DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a professional thief who commits corporate espionage by infiltrating the subconscious of his targets.


This is the MC Toys F-029 1/6 scale Snow Space set for 12-inch figures which I had mentioned briefly in my earlier post - February Haul HERE. This is quite a nice snow outfit set and I really haven't seen that many all white snow sets in a while. Plus this set looked perfect for kitting out 1/6 scale Leonardo DiCaprio for the Inception movie Snow Scene. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures



MC TOYS F-029 1/6 scale Snow Space set (pictured above) comes with Snow coat, Snow pants, Snow boots, Gaiters, Chest rig, Back Pack, Glove, Beanie, Snow goggles, Base layer (white long sleeve sweater), Arm sleeve.


Here's the 12-inch Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb figure wearing the base layer (white long sleeve sweater), white gloves, snow pants and boots


The boots (boot-feet type) are well detailed and nicely done

Nice one Alex! I'm really tempted to get this. Time and again, I've picked it up and put it down.
