Play Toy 1/6 scale Bride Killer version 2.0 Female Action Figure Collectible Set is Uma Thurman

Kill Bill: Volume 1 & 2 are thriller films written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Kill Bill was originally scheduled for a single theatrical release, but with a running time of over four hours, it was separated into two films. Kill Bill Volume 1 was released in late 2003, and Kill Bill: Volume 2 was released in early 2004.

The story follows a character initially identified as "The Bride" (Uma Thurman), a former member of an assassination team who seeks revenge on her ex-colleagues who massacred members of her wedding party and tried to kill her.

Play Toy 1/6 scale Bride Killer version 2.0 Female Action Figure Collectible Set is Uma Thurman specially features: 1/6 scale Female Head Sculpt, 12-inch Female Body, Yellow Racing Jacket, Yellow Racing Pants, Sports Shoes, Socks, Katana (steel alloy), Scabbard, Motorcycle Helmet, Pistol, Pistol Magazine, Hand Assortment, Figure Display Stand

Definitely prefer this latest version to the earlier released version 1.0 (preview pictures posted HERE). Here she wears the very recognizable yellow "leather" street bike jacket and pants (with matching yellow motorcycle helmet), and yellow lace up sports shoes.

Uma Thurman stars in Kill Bill as The Bride / Beatrix Kiddo (Black Mamba): A former member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad who is described as "the deadliest woman in the world". She is targeted by her former allies in the wedding chapel massacre, and falls into a coma. When she awakens four years later, she embarks on a deadly trail of revenge against the perpetrators of the massacre.

The yellow jumpsuit (in this instance, it's a motorcycle rider's outfit which makes it even cooler IMHO) with yellow Asics shoes is an obvious homage to Bruce Lee as seen in the 1978 film Game of Death. The yellow-and-black tracksuit which Lee wore in the film has come to be seen as something of a trademark for the actor, and is paid homage to in numerous other media. Check out the Enterbay "Game of Death" 1/6 scale Bruce Lee figure HERE.

The 1/6 scale motorcycle helmet looks a bit big :( ZC released a much nicer helmet with their 1/6 scale Rosanna Biker Chick figure (posted HERE) which included the motorcycle (pictures HERE) which is now being taken over by Bruce from the Wayne family (see the entry HERE)
