Earlier this year, the CG-animated Japanese cyberpunk film, Appleseed Alpha, was shown at a special screening at San Diego Comic-Con and was well-received by fans. This reboot of the Appleseed film series takes the story to a post-apocalyptic Earth where two mercenary soldiers, Deunan and her cyborg partner Briareos Hecatonchires, must save the world from an evil cyborg. Today, Hot Toys is delighted to officially introduce the 1/6th scale Collectible Figure of the iconic cyborg - Briareos Hecatonchires!
The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Briareos Hecatonchires in Appleseed Alpha featuring newly sculpted mechanical head, newly developed muscular armored and textured body, specially tailored costume, highly-detailed weapons, and a hexagonal figure stand.
