Not Hot Toys but Art Figures 1/6th scale Will Smith as Deadshot 12" action figure Review 1

Deadshot (real name Floyd Lawton) is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of Batman. He has traditionally been portrayed as a supervillain, but has more recently taken the role of an antihero. As the world's deadliest and most accurate marksman, Deadshot has become a staple member of both the Suicide Squad and Secret Six.

The character was portrayed by Will Smith in the 2016 film Suicide Squad, the third instalment in the DC Extended Universe. The Suicide Squad is a secret government agency known as "Task Force X," led by Amanda Waller, that recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency and saving the world from an unknown but powerful threat.

This is the 2016 released Art Figures AF021 1/6th scale Dead Soldier 12-inch action figure which was part of my October 2016 haul posted earlier on my toy blog HERE. The Deadshot figure comes with head sculpt, 12-inch male figure body with relaxed hands and feet, gun holding hands, mask with red eye scope, red eye scope, under armour long sleeve t-shirt, full body armor, dual wrist weapons with pads, tactical pants, tactical belt, military web belt with belt pad, utility pouch.

The box says Dead Soldier on the outside and Deadshot on the inside. Deadshot has no superhuman powers, but is the top marksman in the DC Universe, possessing superhuman-like precision, and regularly boasting to "never miss" his target. Deadshot has access to a vast array of weaponry, most notably his sniper rifle, and twin machine guns mounted on each arm.
