PLAY TOY P013 1/6th scale Monster Hunter 12-inch figure aka Hugh Jackman Van Helsing

Van Helsing is a 2004 American dark fantasy action-adventure film directed by Stephen Sommers. It stars Hugh Jackman as vigilante monster hunter Van Helsing, and Kate Beckinsale as Anna Valerious. The film is an homage and tribute to the Universal Horror Monster films from the 1930s and 1940s (also produced by Universal Studios which were in turn based on novels by Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley), of which Sommers is a fan.

The eponymous character was inspired by the Dutch vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing from Irish author Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. Distributed by Universal Pictures, the film includes a number of monsters such as Count Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and werewolves in a way similar to the multi-monster movies that Universal produced in the 1940s, such as Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man and House of Dracula.

Great looking figure ! I've heard that you can get the Kate head sculpt as an add on !Not sure how it works, but you send for it separately ?

Was this figure ever released? It's on eBay but U.S. preorders seemed to be unfulfilled.

I think this figure hasn't been released yet as my local guy hasn't gotten it. It was on pre-order previously but it's still missing in action :( http://tfh.com.sg/product-details.php?p=12823
