It feels like it's a Throwback Thursday, Flashback Friday and Retro Saturday all rolled into one recently. First, we saw Supermad Toys 1/6th scale Six Million Bionic Man Collectible Figure (pics HERE) which was an attempt to replicate the Kenner 1/6th scale The Six Million Dollar Man Lee Majors as Steve Austin 13-inch tall action figure from 1975 (action figure review posted HERE). Then there was the recast of 1982 Blade Runner 12-inch action figures by Redman Toys previewed HERE (they are supposed to be Rick Deckard and Roy Batty, no doubt helped in part by the soon-to-be-released sequel, Blade Runner 2049) previously released by Brother Production in 2009 (see my previous toy blog post HERE) and now we have prototype / preview pics of Redman Toys THE ONE, an obvious nod to Keanu Reeves as Thomas A. Anderson aka Neo from The Matrix (1999) which was released by Hot Toys in 2001, before they started their MMS line and did things by the book i.e. with official license - check out the pics of Hot Toys THE ONE HERE.
REDMAN TOYS RM026 1/6th scale THE ONE DX 12-inch Collectible Figure will come with Head Sculpt, Metallic Glasses, Black Overcoat (Wire Can be free to shape), Black T-Shirt, Black Pants, Black Leather Tactical Vest, Black Leather Gun hanging X 2, Black Leather Belt, Black Safety Belt, Black Leather Boots, MP5 Submachine Gun X 2, M92F Pistol X 2, M16 Assault Rifle, Hands X 3 pairs, Slim Body, Figure Stand
There was a very promising Neo figure by Iconic Toys previewed earlier (pics HERE) but alas, the production was shut down so fast the figure never saw daylight and the figure was never made so let's hope we see this figure get released soon.
