St Bartholomew, an early Christian martyr who was skinned. If you look closely, you’ll notice that’s not a robe, but actually his removed skin hanging around him. by Marco d’Agrate, 1562 (Duomo cathedral, Milan-Italy)
Good News, Hot Toys 1/6 MMS159 Avatar Jake Sully action figures are in stock now. Only a few left, just grab your opportunity.
To be honest, as a experienced collector, it is not first time for me to see such as vivid figurine, but I still want to appreciate the superb paint work of Hot Toys. The most difficult part of immortalizing the huge Avatar be collectibles is not the ultra tall body, or the facial expression, or maybe his complicated outfits, but the skin color. All of the people who have watched the film have a deep impression on the special skin, so this figurine can be successful if the skin color is well mastered.
Besides, in order to give collectors a real feeling, Hot Toys also provide a light-up figure stage imitating the Pandora scene with transparent pillar. I think it is why this item is priced at $315, but it is really worth the price.
Good news, threeA has launched the real steel Midas 1/6 scale robot figurine, and it is available for pre-order on 7-HOBBY NOW! It is much higher than the regular 1/6 scale action figures, approximately 42cm, because the original Midas is really a huge guy.
Midas is my favorite character in the film of Real Steel. He has a street fighting kind of style. He fights dirty but he is a threat in the ring if you get too cocky. He prefers to beat up his opponent rather than to knock them out.
This Midas 1/6 scale figurine is Bambaland Version, and it comes with a exclusive 1/6 bot controller. It features the movie-accurate facial expression, golden-colored body, red gloves, red boots and red mohawk etc. Both the arms and legs are removable. With the well-designed points of articulations, the fists and feet can detach from the limbs.
This huge guy is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2012. Please stay tuned!
