Redman Toys 1/6th scale Blade Rick and Blade Roy 12" collectible figures aka Deckard & Batty

A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.

Blade Runner is a 1982 American neo-noir science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos. It depicts a dystopian Los Angeles of 2019 in which genetically engineered replicants, which are visually indistinguishable from adult humans, are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation to work on off-world colonies. Those that escape and return to Earth are hunted down and "retired" by special police operatives known as Blade Runners. The story focuses on burnt-out expert Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Ford), who reluctantly agrees to take on one more assignment to hunt down a group of recently escaped replicants led by Roy Batty (Hauer).

Redman Toys will be releasing 1/6th scale Blade Rick and Blade Roy 12-inch collectible figures inspired by the characters portrayed by Harrison Ford (Rick Deckard) and Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty) in the 1982 film. Redman Toys seem to be doing a "Very Hot Toys" move by recasting the two figures Brother Production have released before back in 2010. These look identical to Brother Production versions (see the action figure review of Brother Production 1/6th scale "Blade Hunter" 12-inch figure posted on my toy blog HERE and Brother Production presents Revenge of the Replicant figure HERE). Pictures of both Brother Production figures side-by-side can be seen HERE.
