VIRTUAL TOYS Explorer VM002 Preview

This is Virtual Toys other 1/6 offering (coming soon) - VTS VM002 Explorer 12-inch collectible figure (we'd covered the VTS VM003 City Detective in the previous post). Guess who he's supposed to be?

Well, it's supposed to be Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell from "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008)". It's really hard to tell from the head sculpt as the likeness is not there but the outfit and accessories look GREAT, especially the jacket ;>

Here are pictures of VTS 1/6 Explorer 12-inch Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) without his jacket and showing off his leather double shoulder holster for his pair of Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873 revolvers.

What looks to be a very well-detailed 1/6 double shoulder holster belonging to VTS 1/6 Explorer 12-inch Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser)

Oh look! Individual bullets - nice touch but not altogether new at all. Dragon's 2006 released General Patton's leather belt had leather cartridge loops OR Belt Slide Loop for his 12 REMOVABLE bullets/cartridges (see pictures HERE)

Overall, a pretty nice looking set (except the head sculpt) but going by what I've seen of VTS product quality, this should be a good buy. Just note: there's no body, no body but you - in reference to the song made famous by the Wonder Girls :)

I thought for a second the sculpt could have been partly based on Nathan Drake from the Uncharted game series.

As a likeness for Brendan Fraser, it isn't really one, is it? :P

Nope,BigHatDino,looks nothing like Brendan Fraser. Outfit & accessories look good though.
