Incoming: DAM TOYS (GK005#) Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12" figure

It looks like DAM Toys is done with the Spade series. After previewing the fourth Spade figure "Chad" (see my earlier toy blog post HERE), DAM Toys is now teasing us with the next suit in the playing card series - Diamond 2.

A little backstory: The Diamond family is the strongest and most ambitious one among the four gang families, its members includes Australians, Mexicans and Europeans. Alger, the 2 of diamonds, is the key that changes the power pattern of the four families. He used to be the sidekick of the J of Spades. Alger’s father was a follower of Ogier’s father, the K of Spades, and earned his credits during the rising of Spade family. His father was very loyal to the K of spades, but as his position in the family rose, he eventually started to make plans for his own heir in the fear of nepotism in the family. He gave Alger hard training ever since he was a little child, so that Alger could assist the J of spades becoming the family successor in the coming years. Alger would betray the Spade family and join the Diamonds instead.

DAM TOYS (GK005#) Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12-inch action figure will come with 1/6 scale stylized Head sculpt, DAM 12-inch Action figure body (with tattoos), Black fur collar fur coat, Long sleeve black T-shirt, Black trousers, Black waist chain wallet, Knuckle Duster, High barrel boots (one pair), shotgun, Fly knife x 4, Leather wallet, belt, Silver necklace, left hand wristbands + Palm, right hand wrist support + Palm, extra Palms / hands x 3, sunglasses

Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures. Another to be added to the collection :)

DAM TOYS (GK005#) Gangsters Kingdom 1/6 scale Diamond 2 "Alger" 12-inch action figure has “Flame of revenge” tattooed on both sides of his head

The head sculpt resembles that of Scott Edward Adkins, an English actor and martial artist who is best known for playing Yuri Boyka in "Undisputed II: Last Man Standing" and "Undisputed III: Redemption", Bradley Hume in "Holby City", Ed Russell in "Mile High" and as Hector in "The Expendables 2".

2 of diamonds (Alger) is almost flaunting his betrayal after he changed his “loyalty” tattoo. He no longer has any loyalty in his heart. Alger is deeply influenced by Chinese culture, this is his motto, and his attitude towards life. Alger also tattooed the Tai Ji pattern on his right hand, hoping he could manage the power of balancing Yin and Yang. On his left hand is a tattoo of a compass, wishing himself never get lost (?)

Very cool 1/6 scale accessories :) I especially love the Knuckle Duster

Wicked, thanks for the news, Alex.

Another 'bad ass' to add to my collection of criminals.

Given limited budget these days, I can only afford to buy a few figures... This is one of them. Preordered.

Can't wait to see what's next!
