Subway 1:6 scale SURVIVOR is yet another Will Smith "I am Legend" Robert Neville 12-inch figure

"I Am Legend" is a 2007 post-apocalyptic science fiction action film that stars Will Smith as an Army doctor who struggles to find a cure to the virus that has affected nearly the entire population of the world. Will Smith plays virologist Robert Neville, who is immune to a man-made virus originally created to cure cancer. He works to create a remedy while defending himself against the mutated creatures created by the virus. [source: wiki]

Many companies have had a go at this genre and this particular character. The most recent release was by MC Toys featuring their 1/6 scale Trialmaster Leather Jacket suit set. You can check out my review HERE

This is an upcoming release by Subway and their 1:6 scale SURVIVOR 12-inch figure will come with Realistic head sculpt, 12-inch figure Body, Sunglasses, Leather jacket, Black shirt, Cargo pants, Hiking boots. Weapons include M4 carbine with ACOG optical sight and Tactical light, M9 pistol, M67 fragmentation grenade. Also comes with Messenger bag and German shepherd. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures :)

Just how many 1/6th scale Will Smith 12-inch figures are out there? Just this year alone, EnterBay and Dragon Models (DML) have both released Will Smith as Agent J 12-inch figures. See pictures of EnterBay's MIB3 Agent J figure HERE and my review of DML's Agent J in two earlier posts (HERE and HERE). Will Smith also impressed with his movie debut as CPT Steven Hiller, F16 Pilot in the movie "Independence Day (1996)". Hot Toys actually released a 1/6th scale Will Smith as Captain Steven Hiller figure way back - see pictures HERE. There is also a DML Will Smith as Police Detective Mike Lowrey from "Bad Boys II (2003)" - see pictures. That makes four Will Smith 12-inch figures. Other Will Smith head sculpts include one released by Loading Toys some time ago and another by Dr Figures (check out my review HERE)

Just replace the head with an Enterbay MIB version. Enterbay did the best looking likeness of Will Smith so far
