“I eat green berets for breakfast and right now I'm very hungry.”
The movie Commando starring Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a critical and commercial success when it hit theaters in 1985. The film’s combination of action scenes and humor has set its place as a cult classic among fans. Today Hot Toys is delighted to present the new 1/6th scale collectible figure of the one man army – John Matrix!
The John Matrix collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando featuring newly developed head sculpt with war paint and muscular body, specially tailored outfit, and a large array of detailed weapons and accessories.
Retired Delta Force Operative Colonel John Matrix is informed by his former superior Major General Franklin Kirby that all the other members of his unit have been killed by unknown mercenaries. The mercenaries, among them Bennett, an ex-member of Matrix's team fired for overt brutality in service, attack Matrix’s secluded mountain home and kidnap Matrix’s young daughter Jenny. John Matrix decides to go after the kidnappers himself and rescue his own daughter.
