Mission: Impossible III is the third installment in the Mission: Impossible film series. Tom Cruise returns as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt, who is forced by an arms dealer to steal a mysterious technology known only as "The Rabbit's Foot" in exchange for his kidnapped wife. The 2006 sequel marked the feature film directorial debut of J.J. Abrams (Lost) and co-stars Maggie Q, Ving Rhames, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
It looks like the "Mission: Impossible III" film was the inspiration for Brother Production Presents 1:6 scale "Mission Important" Custom Hand Made 12-inch Action Figure. Ethan Matthew Hunt is a senior field operations agent for the IMF (Impossible Missions Force), an elite, top-secret espionage and covert operations agency that handles dangerous and highly sensitive international missions that have been deemed "impossible". He is portrayed by Tom Cruise in all four films that have been released thus far.
This is not the first Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt figure to be released by Brother Production. They had earlier released the Brothers Production Presents 1/6th scale Final Mission 12-inch figure which is very much based on Tom Cruise as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt in "MI4: Ghost Protocol". You can check out my reviews HERE, HERE and HERE.

On the slipcase cover of Brother Production Presents 1:6 scale "Mission Important" Custom Hand Made 12-inch Action Figure, there are two different pictures which seems to suggest that the set comes with what looks like two outfits but is actually just a change of jackets.
Brother Production Presents 1:6 scale "Mission Important" Custom Hand Made 12-inch Action Figure comes with Realistic Likeness Head sculpt (made of PVC), 12-inch Base Muscle Body, Brown Leather-Like jacket, Grey Military Jacket, Green T-shirt, Blue Jeans with belt and buckle, Military Boots, Military Belt, 1:6 scale H&K G36 (Made of ABS), Drop-Down Holster, Pistol (Made of ABS), Smart Watch, Gloved hands x 1 pair, extra Hands x 3 pairs.
Here's the 12-inch "Mission Important" Custom Hand Made figure with all the 1/6 scale accessories laid out
The 1:6 scale H&K G36 assault rifle comes with a foldable stock and two magazines, one black and one clear.
The miniature G-SHOCK watch is pretty neat. Pistol does not have spare magazines. In the "Mission: Impossible III" film, Ethan Hunt is seen with a few pistols such as the Beretta and Glock 17 but the 1/6 scale pistol included with this set isn't either gun.
Brother Production Present 1:6 scale Custom Hand Made "Mission Important" 12-inch Figure holding on to the H&K G36 assault rifle. He's wearing Brown Leather-Like jacket, Green T-shirt, Blue Jeans with belt and buckle, and Military Boots.
Close-up shots of the 1/6 scale brown jacket, similar to the one worn by Tom Cruise as IMF Agent Ethan Hunt in "Mission: Impossible III".
During the bridge ambush, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) grabs a Heckler & Koch G36K assault rifle from the trunk of his Lincoln Navigator and uses it against the mercenaries sent to free Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman). So here's 12-inch Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt armed with a 1:6 scale G36K rifle.

Scroll down to see the close-up pictures taken of the Brother Production Present "Mission Important" Custom Hand Made Figure 1:6 scale head sculpt. IMHO it's a very good resemblance of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt with the likeness pretty much spot on.
And here's how the 12-inch Tom Cruise figure looks without his jacket on. That's a 12-inch Base Muscle Body under the Green T-shirt. More on the body in the next post.
