Brother Production Presents 1/6th scale Custom Hand Made Robert De Niro THIEF Action Figure

Heat is a 1995 American crime film written and directed by Michael Mann. It stars Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Val Kilmer. De Niro plays Neil McCauley, a professional thief, while Pacino plays Lt. Vincent Hanna, veteran LAPD homicide detective tracking down McCauley's crew. The central conflict was based on the experiences of former Chicago police officer Chuck Adamson and his pursuit in the 1960s of a criminal named McCauley, after whom De Niro's character is named.

The film is technically a remake of L.A. Takedown, a 1989 made-for-television film which was also written and directed by Mann; the director had been trying to get Heat made for over a decade, and created L.A Takedown as a simplified version after his efforts were unsuccessful. Heat was a critical and commercial success, grossing $67 million in the United States and $187 million worldwide. [source: wiki]

Hey Alex,
how r u doing?

have you bought this figure? Do you have it already?

I preorder it in a Hong kong shop, first time I buy from them, but I haven´t receive it yet. I email the shop but they dont reply me back, so i am bit worried.

So I was wondering if you know if the figure has arrived already to the market. I guess no, but since you control all this al lot, you may know something.

thanks a lot!!

Hi Jako

You are right. This figure has not yet been released. I am sorry the shop you ordered from wasn't very helpful. I hate when that happens.

All the BEST :)
