Review 1: Glitch Network Mitsuru Technology BoneHead Test Subject 56 1/6th scale figure

This 12-inch action figure I'm reviewing is from my STGCC 2015 haul (see my toy blog post HERE) - Glitch Network Sixth Vision Mitsuru Technology Bone Head Test Subject 56 aka Machine56 1/6th scale collectible figure. Quite a mouthful but basically he's supposed to be a Test Subject number 56 and also called Bone Head because you can make out the skull face (red colored parts) set against the whites of his head / helmet. Not even sure if there's supposed to be a head under there since there's not much of a back story surrounding this figure / character. This is one of those figures that came out of nowhere which was on display at Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (STGCC) 2015 and since it was being offered, I decided to get it as I liked what I saw on display.


The figure looks to be based on concepts derived from Japanese anime / manga influences as I've seen characters from Japanese comic books wearing Varsity jackets wielding baseball bats before. One fine example is Kai from Saru gang, part of Medicom Toy Tokyo Tribe 2 series - see my post HERE. Another 12-inch figure released recently who wields a baseball bat is DAM Toys Gangsters Kingdom 1/6th scale Spade 2 action figure - you can check out my action figure review HERE and HERE. MC Toys also released a 1/6th scale outfit set with Varsity jacket embroidered with Iron Man logo - see my posts HERE and HERE.

I also like the box design. It's simple shoe-box style and cleverly uses black ink against the white background. The red words (Chinese characters for the numbers 5 and 6) add just a dash of color to the overall clean look. The back of the box is just as interesting.


Glitch Network's Sixth Vision Mitsuru Technology BoneHead Test Subject 56 1/6th scale collectible figure comes with Authentic Test Subject 56 figure in 1/6th scale wearing Varsity jacket, red T-shirt, black pants and shoes; 3 (three) pairs of interchangeable hands, custom Baseball bat with hidden blade (Die-cast), Mech Slayer and A5 size limited print.

Here's the Glitch Network Sixth Vision Mitsuru Technology Bone Head Test Subject 56 aka Machine56 1/6th scale collectible figure out of the box without his jacket, wearing just a red T-shirt and armed with his baseball bat.
