Loading Toys Dangerous Man "Vagrant" Preview

The next Loading Toys release is Tom Cruise as Ray Ferrier in "War of the Worlds (2005)".

Ray Ferrier is a working class man living in New Jersey. He's estranged from his family, his life isn't in order, and he's too caught up with himself. But the unthinkable and, ultimately, the unexpected happens to him in an extraordinary sense. His small town life is shaken violently by the arrival of destructive intruders: Aliens which have come en masse to destroy Earth. As they plow through the country in a wave of mass destruction and violence, Ray must come to the defense of his children. As the world must fend for itself by a new and very advanced enemy not of this world, it's inhabitants must save humanity from a far greater force that threatens to destroy it.

Loading Toys Dangerous Man "Vagrant" head - not very Tom Cruise-like but the look is supposedly taken from the movie poster (see picture below). For copyright and licensing issues, Loading Toys' head sculpts are never meant to be exactly accurate but they come pretty damn close, except for this sculpt. I hope they improve from this prototype.

Besides the head sculpt, it also includes his unique jacket, a T-shirt, jeans, belt and Adidas sneakers (I know of someone who might be keen on the sneakers)

The outfit is very close to that which is worn by Tom Cruise in the movie (see picture below)

Loading Toys' Tom Cruise is missing the winning smile - LOL. There also seems to be a lot more layers of clothing under that jacket. Maybe they'll spring us a surprise when the actual package comes out. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
