Last November, Play Toy announced that they were coming out with a 12-inch figure set called Maintenance Technician - check out my toy blog post HERE. Anyone who had seen the 2013 film OBLIVION would have recognised it right away as the character Commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise). At the time, there was feedback from collectors who saw the pictures that it had a couple things wrong with it - namely the poor detail of the rifle and the absence of dust goggles. After some time, many thought the set would never come to fruition. Play Toy has just re-released all new images this week, with an improved set. Rifle has more detail, and the goggles are there! Isn't it nice when manufacturers listen to feedback :)
Oblivion is a 2013 post-apocalyptic science fiction film based on Joseph Kosinski's unpublished graphic novel of the same name. The film was co-written, produced and directed by Kosinski. The film is set in the year 2077, sixty years after Earth has been devastated from the effects of an alien invasion. Most of humanity has left Earth for a massive tetrahedral space station (called Tet).
Tom Cruise stars as Commander Jack Harper, one of the few remaining humans on Earth assigned to protect and maintain drones that extract Earth's resources to fuel the Tet. With only a couple of weeks away from joining the rest of humanity, Jack discovers a crashed spacecraft that forces him to question everything he believes.
Play Toy P007 1/6th scale Maintenance Technician 12-inch figure aka Oblivion's Jack Harper will come with: Head Sculpt, Male Body, Goggles, Pants, Jacket, Boots, Belt, Rifle, Sling, Pistol, Holster, Hand Assortment
