Coming Soon from ZCWO: 1/6 Captain Ranky 12-inch female figure

"Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" is a 2004 American pulp adventure science-fiction film written and directed by Kerry Conran in his directorial debut. The film is set in an alternative 1939 and follows the adventures of Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow), a newspaper reporter, and Harry Joseph "Joe" Sullivan (Jude Law), alias "Sky Captain," as they track down the mysterious Dr. Totenkopf (Laurence Olivier), who is seeking to build the "World of Tomorrow".

Sky Captain is notable as one of the first major films – along with Sin City (2005), Casshern (2004), and Immortal (2004) – to be shot entirely on a "digital backlot", blending live actors with computer generated surroundings.

Angelina Jolie stars as Commander Francesca "Franky" Cook: She commands a Royal Navy flying aircraft carrier. Jolie had just arrived from the set of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) and agreed to work on the movie for three days. Despite her small role, she reportedly had conducted hours of interviews with fighter pilots in order to absorb their jargon and get a feel for the role.

This is the upcoming ZCWO soon-to-be-released 1/6 scale Captain Ranky 12-inch female action figure obviously based on and inspired by Angelina Jolie's starring role as Commander Francesca "Franky" Cook in "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow".

The 12-inch female female will come with 1/6 scale Angelina Jolie as Commander Francesca "Franky" Cook head sculpt (with molded on cap / hat and eye patch), new ZCWO Female Body (ABS Material, prevents dyeing on skin surface), a pair of gloved hands, black Sky Commander leather clothing of leather-like jacket and black skin-tight pants complete with pistol, holster, belt and leather-like whip.

One of the best female action figures I´ve seen (and from one of my favourite pics). Nice.

Looks good, but the yellow is very distracting as the movie version didn't have that kind of intensity, but it's cool, I guess this will be the ONLY figure released by any company from the movie.
