The 6 of spades, Ada, is Dam Toys first 12-inch female action figure and part of their Gangsters Kingdom 1/6th scale series. You can read all about her backstory posted on my toy blog sometime back HERE. While I didn't get this figure, my good friend Ted Menten did. Ted has been a guest reviewer on this blog many times already, having covered some of the figures that I didn't pre-order or purchase, such as the CmToys 1/6th scale 12-inch Figure Body (posted HERE), ThreeA Lost Planet 2 1/6th scale Mercenary 12-inch Action Figure (reviewed HERE), ACG Toys ATF-002 1/6 scale 'Young & Dangerous' Teddy Boy (Chan Ho Nam) 12-inch figure (covered HERE) and Kaustic Plastik 1/6 scale XXL Project Set 1 - The Fantasy Warrior head and outfit set (posted HERE).
Once again, Ted has so generously offered to share with all of us his take of the DAM TOYS Gangsters Kingdom 1/6th scale Spade 6 ADA 12-inch female action figure with pictures and short descriptions so that we all can get to know Ada better. What else can I say except "THANK YOU, Ted"! This is very much appreciated :)
From Ted Menten:
This is my first Gangsters Kingdom figure. It has a lot interesting details. The head and face is exactly like the preview images. The hair is rooted and is cut in a boyish style. The upper torso is soft (rubber) and there is a tattoo on her chest and stomach. Hands are very detailed and include rings on the fingers. She has removable fingerless (mitts) gloves with a design on the top side.

These are images of the ADA packaging, The front "cover" is heavy cardboard -- front and two sides held in place with magnets. The back of the cover is a "background" for the figure.
Second "cover" is standard weight cardboard with the story and removable playing card. Next under that is the comic book. There is a "story" card as well as a comic book that depicts her in action.
Then a thin foam layer with covers and protects the figure tray.
Under the figure tray is the accessory tray.

The figure easily holds a pose without support. Leather coat has a lot of stitching detail and is trimmed in faux fur. The front detailing and closure actually resemble a bustier or corset. She has a print bra underneath. Tight leather pants and high heel boots complete the outfit. She has a sword and two guns. She also has a silver cross on a chain and sunglasses. She carries a black plastic coffin shaped backpack that can hold her weapons.

I was sure this was gonna be Keira Knightley from Domino when I first saw the sculpt. The clothes don't match that movie but it's the only one I could think of she's done that would fit the Gangster line.
Does anyone know if the head sculpt is available anywhere for sale? Not thrilled with the outfit but the sculpt is better than the Hot Toys Elizabeth Swann & I want to do a kitbash of Elizabeth Swann from the first POTC: Curse of the Black Pearl where she's in the white shift on the island with Jack.
