Incoming: ART Figures 1/6th scale Boy Black is 12-inch Vin Diesel as Riddick in Pitch Black

Pitch Black is a 2000 science fiction action/horror film co-written and directed by David Twohy. The film stars Vin Diesel, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, and Keith David. Dangerous criminal Richard B. Riddick (Diesel) is being transported to prison in a spacecraft. When the spaceship is damaged by comet debris and makes an emergency crash landing on an empty desert planet, Riddick escapes. However, when predatory alien creatures begin attacking the survivors, Riddick joins forces with the surviving crew and other passengers to develop a plan to escape the planet.

Pitch Black was shot on a modest budget of $23 million USD. Despite mixed reviews from critics, it was a sleeper hit, grossing over $53 million USD worldwide and developing its own cult following, particularly around the antihero Riddick.

Richard B. Riddick is a former mercenary, soldier, and pilot, an infamous criminal and murderer who was captured by Johns and placed in suspended animation along with Johns, who was to bring him to a prison to collect a bounty. He has artificial eyes that allow him to see in the dark but need protection from daylight, hence the goggles.

About time someone did a Riddick figure, this would look good with that seamless muscular body u posted a few days ago.

IT'S. ABOUT. FRIGGIN. TIME! I'm sure I'm not the only one waiting for someone to do this character. I think it could've been a little better though.... the goggles and body they choice are a bit off,I think.
