First haul in June: DID 1/6th scale '90s LAPD SWAT “Kenny” 12-inch figure aka Keanu Reeves

This is my first haul for June 2017: DID MA1003 1/6th scale '90s LAPD SWAT “Kenny” 12-inch action figure which is essentially Keanu Reeves as Los Angeles police officer Jack Traven in the 1994 American action thriller film "Speed". Los Angeles police officer Jack (Keanu Reeves) angers retired bomb squad member Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) by foiling his attempt at taking hostages. In revenge, Payne arms a bus with a bomb that will explode if it drops below 50 miles per hour. With the help of spunky passenger Annie (Sandra Bullock), Jack and his partner Harry (Jeff Daniels) try to save the people on the bus before the bomb goes off, while also trying to figure out how Payne is monitoring them.

I first saw this figure previewed at the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (STGCC) 2016 - check out the post on my toy blog HERE. DID released the official prototype pictures in March 2017 (see the pics HERE) and although this figure is really late arriving at the scene (the film was released 23 years ago), I think it's still worth the wait. I am more interested in the figure wearing plain clothes with EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) vest than the LAPD SWAT figure since many SWAT figures have been released already and I myself have quite a number of them in my collection. Check out my post on 1/6th scale S.W.A.T. 12-inch Action Figures HERE.

The reverse side of the box cover (held to the box by magnets hidden in the flaps) has a diorama scene which you can use as a backdrop.

The box packaging seems to show two sets of outfits but in reality, you can have only one option or the other and not both as only one figure and one assault vest are provided. Still, you are getting quite a lot of accessories for the set.
