Review 1: Play Toy P003 1/6 The Villain 12-inch figure - Jean-Claude Van Damme as Jean Vilain

In the 2012 American ensemble action film "The Expendables 2", Jean-Claude Van Damme portrays Jean Vilain, the leader of an opposing team of mercenaries known as the Sangs. In the beginning of the film, the Expendables are ambushed by international criminal and arms dealer Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme), his right-hand man Hector (Scott Adkins) and his mercenary group (the Sangs), and are forced to watch Vilain kill their comrade, sniper Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth), the team's newest recruit and Ross' protégé. Leader Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his team of merry men vow to seek vengeance on Vilain.

Van Damme was intentionally distant from the cast and crew during filming to stay in character. Commenting on the role, Stallone said: "We’ll have a big showdown between me and Van Damme, which has been anticipated for a long time, so it should be a good one." Van Damme was offered a role in The Expendables, but ultimately turned it down.


This is the recently released Play Toy P003 1/6th scale The Villain 12-inch figure OR Jean-Claude Van Damme JCVD as Jean Vilain in The Expendables 2 which comes with 1/6 scale head sculpt, 12-inch figure body, 4 swappable hands, black leather coat, long sleeve black T-shirt, belt, tactical belt, boots, sunglasses, AUG assault rifle, pistol x 2, pistol magazines x 2, shoulder holster, metal hunting knife, hunting knife sheath, figure stand.

In the film, Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme), leader of an Albanian criminal group known as the Sang, uses a Walther P99 with a gold-plated slide as his sidearm. But that's not what is included with this set. The pistols included appear to be Colt M1911A1 pistols.


Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme) carries a Steyr AUG A3 with an Aimpoint Micro T-1 red dot sight as his primary firearm in the film. This looks to be a 1/6 scale version of the Steyr AUG A3 rifle but no red dot sight is added. In its place is a sniper's scope and carrying handle.

I think the 1/6 scale sunglasses gives the 12-inch Play Toy "Villain" figure a better likeness and resemblance to JCVD. Check out the rest of the pictures below.

Headsculpt just isnt there. How is the quality of the AUG?

The AUG is just okay - nice accessory but not top notch stuff.
