Brother Production Presents: HARD-BOILED II "Harry" Preview

This is the Brother Production 1:6 scale 12-inch Custom Made Action Figure HARD-BOILED II "Harry" based on the character played by Clint Eastwood in the "Dirty Harry" movies. Clint Eastwood is San Francisco Police Department Inspector Harold Francis "Dirty Harry" Callahan in the films Dirty Harry (1971), Magnum Force (1973), The Enforcer (1976), Sudden Impact (1983), and The Dead Pool (1988).

Product Description: Real-like Head Sculpture x 2pcs with Over 35 Moving Joints Male Body + Realistic and Detailed Suit, Long Sleeve Shirt,  Patterned Tie, Trousers, Belt, Socks and Real Leather Black Shoes. Hands x 2pairs, Leather-Liked Shoulder Holster, Long Barrel Magnum (ABS made), Cigarettes x 1, Cigarette packs x 1

This is the second "Dirty Harry" action figure by Brother Production. Perhaps it's because the first one did well enough to justify a second run. You can view pictures of the FIRST version Brother Production 1:6 Hard-boiled "Harry" figure HERE and HERE. The FIRST version seems to have a lot more stuff including a nice diorama base.

Callahan's signature weapon is a Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum revolver, which he uses in all of the films. The gun's prominence in the films instantly popularized it. The character states the use of a "Light Special", .44 Special loads, that he loads himself because it gives him "better accuracy and control in a gun this size".

Brother Production got carried away and included scope rails, barrel ridge and PVC grips when it is supposed to be a 1970's SW 44 Magnum which was pretty basic, as seen in the FIRST version.

This was the 1970s and smoking was considered COOL and it helped Clint Eastwood define his character and show how bada$$ he was. Smoking has since been discouraged, even on screen and it sure didn't help Michael Douglas at all since he revealed that his throat cancer was mainly due to his smoking.
