Movie Stars in 1/6 - cont'd

Hot Toys 1/6 scale 12-inch Tom Cruise F-14 Tomcat Fighter Pilot figure was most probably their very first 12-inch figure they released, along with their Will Smith as Captain Steven Hiller F-18 Hornet Fighter Pilot figure. There's also Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, Impossible Missions Force (IMF) Agent and George Clooney as Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Devoe, US Army Special Forces officer in "The Peacemaker (1997)".

The King of Cool, Steve McQueen in his breakout role as Josh Randall in "Wanted: Dead or Alive", Hot Toys Rambo from First Blood Part II and my very first Medicom figure - Sylvester Stallone as Judge Joseph Dredd from the movie "Judge Dredd (1995)".

Brad Pitt as Achilles from the movie "Troy (2004)", Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, Brad Pitt as Detective David Mills in "Se7en (1995)"

Sideshow's Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, Shia LaBeouf as Henry "Mutt Williams" Jones III and Dragon Colin Farrell as LAPD SWAT Officer Jim Street in "SWAT (2003)" movie.

"Windtalkers (2002)" movie figures by Dragon. Dragon released some nice figures that tie-in with the film's release in Hong Kong and this was just one of them.

These three needs no introduction. BBI actually released President George W Bush as he was attired when he went on board the USS Lincoln on May 1, 2003.

Kitbashed LAPD SWAT figure of Keanu Reeves as Jack Traven, Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith and Keanu as Neo from "The Matrix (1999)"

The trio from the "X-Files"

Christian Bale as Grammaton Cleric First Class John Preston in "Equilibrium (2002)", Chow Yun-Fat as Nick Chen in "The Corruptor (1999)" and Aaron Kwok as Darren in "China Strike Force (2000)", both figures by Dragon.

Kitbashed Chow Yun Fat as John Lee in "The Replacement Killers (1998)", Michael Wong as Lieutenant Stone Wong in "Final Option (1994)" and Jackie Chan, all by Dragon Models. Dragon has released the most number of Asian head sculpts to date, mostly from the Hong Kong movie scene but at least there was an asian voice for 1/6 figures. Now that they have fallen, we don't get that many asian head sculpts anymore, except the one or two from Enterbay. SIGH!
