Brother Production Leonardo DiCaprio Cobb figure PREVIEW

You better believe you are not dreaming because here is another 1/6 scale Leonardo DiCaprio as Dom Cobb from INCEPTION 12-inch figure. This time it's by Brother Production and they're calling it EXCEPTION. Sounds more like a DECEPTION to me haha. VTS Virtual Toys first gave us a sneak peek at their Leonardo DiCaprio as Dominic Cobb, the Extractor 1/6 head sculpt in November 2010 (pictures posted HERE), followed by Nobody Toys "Dreamcatcher" DiCaprio as Cobb headsculpt (my kitbash of 1/6 scale Dom Cobb figure HERE) and then there was Custom Studio's Dream Stalker 1/6 Figure, not to mention Head Play's Leonardo version which IMHO, is the worst by far.

In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a highly skilled thief is given a final chance at redemption which involves executing his toughest job to date: Inception, the planting of an idea into a target's subconscious.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his partner Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) perform illegal corporate espionage by entering the subconscious minds of their targets, using two-level "dream within a dream" strategies to extract valuable information. Dreamers are awakened either by a sudden shock (a "kick"), or by dying in the dream.

Brother Production Presents EXCEPTION 1/6 scale custom hand made 12-inch action figure, besides the standard suit, will also come with Beretta Px4 Storm with silencer, 'Dream Machine' suitcase and 1/6 totem. There's also a 1/6 scale foldable chair and alternate headsculpt (dream state).

Each of the extractors carries a totem, a personalized small object whose behavior is unpredictable to anyone except its owner, to determine whether they are in another person's dream. Cobb's totem is a spinning top which perpetually spins in the dream state.

Brother Production Presents 150 pieces Limited Edition 1/6 scale custom hand made EXCEPTION Dream Extractor "Cobb" 12-inch action figure will come with Headsculpt (Ordinary Version), alternate Headsculpt (In Dream State), Over 35 Moving Joints Base Body, Realistic and Detailed Suit, Long Sleeve Patterned Shirt, Tie (With Metal Tie Clip), Handgun with Movable Slide, Pistol Magazine, Silencer (ABS Made), Normal Hands, Gloved Hands, Hands for Holding Handgun, 1/6 Wedding Ring, Belt, Socks, Black Shoes, Spinning Top Totem, Aluminnium Suitcase (Portable Dream-sharing PDS Device), Folding Chair

The nice suitcase with the intricate Dream Machine device alone makes this stand out - but not sure if it is movie accurate.
But whats your take on this figure Alex?

Looks pretty good, but their on-hand product and promotional product shots could be as different as night and day. Have to adopt a wait-and-see attitude ;p CHEERS

Agree with you, bro. Brother Production prototype and actual product varies very much different..
