Incoming: Craftone 1/6th scale Fighter is really 12-inch Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden in "Fight Club"

Fight Club is a 1999 film based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk. The film was directed by David Fincher, and stars Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter. Norton plays the unnamed protagonist, an "everyman" who is discontented with his white-collar job. He forms a "fight club" with soap maker Tyler Durden, played by Pitt, and they are joined by men who also want to fight recreationally. Fight Club was one of the most controversial and talked-about films of the 1990s. After Fight Club '​s theatrical release, it became more popular via word of mouth, and the positive reception of the DVD established it as a cult film that David Ansen of Newsweek conjectured would enjoy "perennial" fame.

Craftone will be releasing their 1/6th scale Fighter 12-inch collectable action figure which is most likely inspired by Brad Pitt's Tyler Durden character seen in the 1999 film "Fight Club".

The other set consists of black fur coat, orange vest, red trousers, red socks, brown leather shoes, rings and a cigarette.
