Comparison pictures of Art Figures 1/6th scale Judge Dredd and VTS Judge Anderson figures

continued from previous toy blog post

After reviewing the VTS VM-013 1/6th scale New Epoch Cop 12-inch figure aka Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson from DREDD movie (action figure review HERE), let’s see how she fares beside the 2014 released Art Figures AF-015 1/6th scale Heavy Armoured Special Cop “DREDD” 12-inch figure (Reviewed earlier HERE and HERE). These two figures are released by different manufacturers and it’s interesting to see how they look beside each other. Art Figures also released their version of Judge Anderson but she just didn’t make the cut. Art figures’ version looks rushed and certainly not up to standard compared with VTS version. You can see the preview pics of Art Figures AF-020 1:6 Heavy Armoured Special Cop (Female) figure HERE.

These two figures look quite good together, even if they are made differently. The red color on the helmets are different, Judge Anderson’s helmet is a tad brighter than Dredd’s. Other minor differences exist but they are not as obvious. VTS 1/6th scale New Epoch Cop’s (Judge Anderson) Lawgiver Mk. II has more colors than Dredd’s which is mostly black. Knee pads and shin guards are different too.

Scroll down to see all the pictures including group pics of these 2012 movie judges alongside 1995 movie judges of Sylvester Stallone as Judge Dredd and Judge Hershey (NOT the chocolate).

Dredd strikes a very imposing figure compared to Anderson and that’s a good thing. The height difference works well here as we expect Dredd to be more intimidating and have a commanding presence.
Here are two different versions of the Judges. Medicom Toys released their 1/6 scale RAH (Real Action Hero) movie version Judge Dredd 12-inch figure way back in 1995 when the movie came out and it was my FIRST Medicom figure I ever bought. It also introduced me to the world of high-end collectibles. You can check out the action figure review HERE. Still waiting for an updated version. It’s been more than 20 years. A female Judge Hershey figure by ACE Girls Mission was released in 2010 – see the review post HERE. So there are a total of four Judges from two movies in the picture below.

I am now waiting for the 2000 AD x ThreeA 1/6th scale JUDGE DREDD 12-inch Collectible Figure which is most faithful to the comic 🙂 preview pics HERE

Comparison pictures of OE Killer Instinct Righter with Sam, Princess Jun, Vis Eris, Raiden & Boom

continued from previous post

Having done a two-part review of the recently released Original Effect OE Killer Instinct series 1/6 scale Righter 13.5″ tall female action figure HERE and HERE, I think it’s a good time to do comparison shots of OE Killer Instinct Righter with OE Killer Instinct Sam. After all, they are both supposed to be from the same series and yet they both look so different from each other in terms of uniform / outfit. Killer Instinct Sam looks rather rugged as if she lives in a post-apocalyptic world whereas Killer Instinct Righter looks like she came from a sci-fi futuristic world. Whatever it is, I like them both 🙂 from their anime / manga looking stylized female head sculpts to their different outfits. I actually prefer this series to OE’s original Army Attractive series of which 1/6 scale Viola female action figure was the first. Check out my review HERE and HERE.

It’s funny how when I first started my toy collecting hobby which then transcended to 1/6 scale action figures, I never thought I would be collecting 12-inch female figures. Looks like I have quite a few of them in my collection now. And OE’s female figures are not even 12 inches tall but taller at 13 inches (without heels). With the heels added, they are 13.5 inches tall which makes them giants in the 1/6 scale world.

Scroll down to see the comparison pictures of OE Killer Instinct Righter with Sam, Princess Jun, Vis Eris, Raiden & Boom. Not sure who they are? Well, you just have to check them out. Click on them for bigger and better views.

As you can see from the pictures, OE Killer Instinct Righter is much taller than Sam because of her high heels. Sam stands at 13 inches whereas Righter is 13.5 inches tall, the same height as Viola (check out the comparison pictures of Sam and Viola HERE)
Scroll down to see more pictures of OE Killer Instinct Sam and Righter side-by-side
Here’s Righter with her Uniform cloak which reminds me of another female character from a famous American adaptation of the Japanese anime series Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (1972) called Battle of the Planets (1978)
So I couldn’t resist not posting pictures of 1/6 scale Battle of the Planets! G-Force! Princess Jun together with OE Killer Instinct Righter and Sam. You can see from the pictures just how much bigger OE’s female figures are compared with other 1/6 scale figures
This is the Takara Cool Girl 1/6th scale Gatchaman G3 Jun the Swan CyGirl 12-inch female action figure which was from sometime ago. You can view more pictures HERE and HERE
And here are pictures of OE Killer Instinct Righter with Takara’s CG-13 “Eris” from the Violent Interception Squad (VIS) – see my earlier post HERE for more pictures. They both look like they belong in the sci-fi world.
I just love the whole RoboCop look about her, including the ED209 inspired helmet with the black dome. Check out the recently released NECA Robocop 10-inch tall ED-209 Robot Action Figure (with Sound Effects & Dialogue) posted HERE and HERE as well as the Hot Toys 1/6 scale version of ED-209 HERE
Scroll down to see more pictures of this Takara CG-13 1/6 scale Violent Interception Squad (VIS) “Eris” 12-inch female figure
How does Medicom Toys 1/6 scale Metal Gear Solid 4: Raiden fit into all this? he doesn’t but I just felt that he could fit very well in the world where OE Killer Instinct Righter and Sam came from.
You can view more pictures of this Medicom Toys 1/6 scale Metal Gear Solid 4: Raiden in my 2008 post HERE
And here’s OE Killer Instinct Sam with AX2 “Boom!” Series Collection #2 1/6 scale Rei (prototype clone) 12-inch action figure. They both certainly look like they belong in the same world. Check out the review of AX2 “Boom!” Rei HERE, HERE and HERE

So that about covers it for now 🙂

Comparison pictures: Hot Toys Die-cast 1/6th scale Iron Patriot and War Machine Version 1.0

continued from previous post

This toy blog post covers comparison pictures of Hot Toys MMS195-D01 Movie Masterpiece Series Die-cast 1/6th scale “Iron Man 3” Iron Patriot 12-inch Collectible Action Figure with the Hot Toys War Machine Mark 1 (version 1.0 – the original from “Iron Man 2”) plus pictures taken with the other 1/6 scale James Rhodes (Terrence Howard as Lt. Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes as seen in the first Iron Man film).

I didn’t get War Machine version 2.0 as it is basically a repaint of Iron Patriot in the dull gray colors of the first War Machine. War Machine version 2.0 looks sleeker than the first War Machine figure, the War Machine Mark 1, which was bulkier and built to look like a tank compared to Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor suit which was more streamlined.

Having already covered Hot Toys 1/6 scale Iron Patriot die-cast collectible figure’s packaging and contents HERE, plus light-up features HERE, 1/6 scale head sculpt with authentic likeness of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes / Iron Patriot HERE, doing the salute HERE (including comparison side-by-side pictures with The Avengers Captain America) and testing the pose-ability of the armor suit HERE, I guess this last post with comparison pictures would be most appropriate.

Here are some close-up pictures / shots to show the differences between War Machine Mark 1 and War Machine Mark II / Iron Patriot. Both 1/6 scale figures are produced and released by Hot Toys, showing off the nice detailing and attention to movie accuracy to bring out the best in 12-inch figures. Even though Hot Toys has ventured into 1/4 scale figures, no doubt prompted and pushed by Enterbay Toys to do so in order not to let up in the competition for the collectors’ dollars, Hot Toys is still continually showcasing and previewing mostly 1/6 scale figures for which I am glad, because I still much prefer my figures to be 1/6 scale rather than 1/4 scale which is just too big for my liking.

And here’s Hot Toys MMS195-D01 Movie Masterpiece Series Die-cast 1/6th scale “Iron Man 3” Iron Patriot 12-inch Collectible Action Figure (Don Cheadle as James Rhodes) standing alongside the other 1/6 scale James Rhodes (Terrence Howard as Lt. Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes as seen in the first Iron Man film).
I had posted pictures of this 1/6 scale Terrence Howard as Lt. Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes in my review of the ZCWO Mens Hommes MH Vol. 10 1/6 U.S. Air Force Officer Service Dress Uniform HERE
And finally, here’s 1/6 scale Tony Stark standing between the two Lt. Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes 12-inch figures. Tony is wearing the MC Toys F-027 Men’s Iron Fan set (reviewed earlier HERE) with a bit of alteration by me (more pictures posted HERE)

Comparison pictures of Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale God Complex Hermes 12-inch action figures

continued from previous post

So far two 1/6 scale God Complex Hermes 12-inch figures have been released by Foxbox Studio and they are both extremely limited in numbers and hard to come by. The first hermes figure was also the first Foxbox Studio figure and since that figure’s release, they have been on a roll and released quite a number of God Complex figures with more on the way. The God Complex line has struck a chord with many collectors and gathered quite a lot of fans to the story and styling. The designs are very unique and refreshing and offers collectors a different perspective from the usual military lines and movie related merchandise products / figures.

The second Hermes figure aka Black Hermes was released recently at the 2014 Thailand Toy Expo (which was held from May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok) as an event exclusive limited to only 20 pieces, and priced at 8500 Thai Baht, available via Raffle only.

So how do these two Hermes figures fare? Let’s put these two Foxbox Studio God Complex Hermes figures side-by-side for a one-to-one comparison and see how different the second figure differs from the first. The latest released figure, Black Hermes Psychoprompus, is as the name suggests, very much black in color whereas the first released Hermes figure is predominantly gray / silver with a tinge of white.

Scroll down to see the comparison pictures.

The first released Foxbox Studio 1/6 scale God Complex Hermes 12-inch action figure (shown on the left in the pictures posted) looks more bird-like with the long neck compared to the more recently produced black version. Because of the extended neck, it makes him taller than the average joe / 12-inch figure, in this case, Black Hermes.

Check out the turnaround views of both God Complex Hermes figures. The latest Hermes seems to have more armor, especially on his back. It looks like it can aid him in flight.
