DAM Toys has been highly successful with their 1/6 scale Gangsters Kingdom series, having already produced and released a total of eight 12-inch figures so far, six regular releases and two exclusives (limited production run sold at toy fairs). You can check out the review I posted of the most recently released figure, Dam Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale "Diamond 3" 12-inch figure on my toy blog HERE and HERE.
AMZ Toys hopes to emulate DAM Toys' success by producing a rival line along the Gangsters' theme which DAM has managed to run away with. Too bad AMZ seems to have fallen short of the yardstick in terms of quality and skill. I'm just not jumping at this as I did when I first saw the preview pictures of DAM Toys Spade J figure (posted HERE). The final delivered product was just as good looking as the prototype. You can check out my reviews of the DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale "Spade J" 12-inch figure (an animated / stylized Jason Statham) HERE, HERE and HERE.
AMZ is trying for a stylized Jay-Z 12-inch figure but the 1/6 scale head sculpt looks more like Bill Duke. It's "A" for effort but the final prototype does not resonate well with me. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures. Be sure to click on them for bigger and better views.
