Incoming: Asmus Toys "The Lord of the Rings" 1/6 scale Éowyn in Rohan Armour 12-inch figure

Éowyn is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium, who appears in his most famous work, The Lord of the Rings. She is a noblewoman of Rohan who is described as a shieldmaiden. Éowyn is described to be very beautiful; she was tall, slim, pale, and graceful, with long golden hair and grey eyes. In temperament she was idealistic, spirited, brave and high-minded, but very lonely, having sacrificed her own happiness for years to care for her sick uncle and meet the responsibilities of a shield-maiden.

In Peter Jackson’s films The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), Éowyn is played by Miranda Otto. This is the character on which Amsus Toys has based their Lord of the Rings 1/6 scale Éowyn 12-inch figure on and if I were still collecting The Lord of the Rings figures, I would probably grab this in a heartbeat. But the increasing prices of everything has put a huge damper on the collecting hobby and the price of this figure is just not justifiable.

In Return of the King, Éowyn disguised herself as a man and under the alias of Dernhelm, travelled with the Riders of Rohan to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields outside the White City of Minas Tirith in Gondor, carrying with her Merry Brandybuck, who had also been ordered to remain behind, on her horse Windfola.

The Witch-king attacked Éowyn with his steed, but she slew it with her sword. He then shattered her shield and broke her shield-arm with his mace, but was distracted by Merry, who stabbed him behind the knee with a sword enchanted with spells against him. Éowyn seized the opportunity to strike the Witch-king with a killing thrust “between crown and mantle”. Then as her sword shattered, his withering form collapsed and he vanished with a final cry of anguish.
1/6 scale shattered shield will be included

After the demise of Sauron, Éowyn and Faramir married and settled in Ithilien, of which Faramir was made the ruling Prince by King Elessar (the name with which Aragorn ascended the throne of the Reunited Kingdom). Faramir and Éowyn had at least one son (Elboron), and their grandson was Barahir, who wrote The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen in the Fourth Age.

Faramir was played by David Wenham who was also Dilios the Spartan and narrator in “300 (2007)”. Sideshow Collectibles also released Faramir’s elder brother, Boromir from “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”. You can see my review post HERE as well.

continued from previous post

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a 2007 third-person shooter video game developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive in North America and PAL regions, and Spike in Japan, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game was received with mixed to positive reviews, and spawned a sequel, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.

James formerly managed a warehouse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin before being arrested and convicted of the murder of his wife Annie and sentenced to death row. He stands 6″1″, has green eyes, and receding long hair. He is a medicated schizophrenic and psychopath. It was currently unknown whether or not he killed his wife, but from dialogues strongly suggested that he did. An example of this was during the prison mission, when he uncertainly said that he was unsure what happened that night. James was sentenced to death.

Now, both of Adam and James were waiting for the prison, waiting for the prison van to carry them to death room. They two were heading for no future. But during the van travelling, Adam and James escaped. Subsequently, these two death prisoners launched a series of operations and missions…

CHAPTER 4: The war began.
Section 1: Declaration of war.

Baron, the 5 of Spades, is a former SAS sniper. He joined the army with a simple wish: shooting enemies on the battlefield. But the reality seems enjoy going against wishes. Baron finally received an order to eliminate an important member of Al-Qaeda; he had been waiting long enough for this chance, and this mission made him energetic all day long. Finally he placed the target in the middle of his crosshair, while suddenly the target picked up a child and hold in his arms. Baron had a little moment of hesitate. The reality always throws to us single-choice questions, and we only have one chance, but making this choice would sometimes make us lost our mind. Being a devil, you can destroy everything before your eyes; but if you are a saint, you have to live with your choice.

After retirement from the army, Baron could not find a proper job, not even a place to stay. He tried to keep himself drunk every day, so that he could stop from thinking of that picture, the child’s face. Referred by a comrade back in the army, Baron picked up a job to carry out those dirty works for the mob, utilizing his sniping skills. At first he did not want to do this any more, but life did not leave him much choice, especially when poverty was challenged by lucrative payments. Soon as he pulled the trigger again, more jobs kept coming in. He soon got the trust from the Spades family via his precision and cleanness, and eventually he began to work solely for the Spade family. Finally, he earned himself a card in the family, as well as the love of the 6 of Spades, little sister of J.

Incoming: Brother Production Present "Kill Them Softly" 1/6 scale custom made action figure

Killing Them Softly is a 2012 American neo-noir crime film directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Brad Pitt, based on the 1974 novel Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins. Brad Pitt plays Jackie Cogan, a hitman and enforcer hired to restore order after three dumb guys rob a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse.

Not wanting to get by on his charming good looks alone, Brad Pitt makes himself to look less debonair and more gangster-like. Come on, if you see this guy coming towards you, you’ll look for cover because he’s certainly up to no good.

This is Brother Production Presents soon-to-be-released 1/6 scale custom made “Kill Them Softly” 12-inch action figure (Limited Edition of 100 pcs) and will include: 1/6 scale Head sculpt, Over 35 Moving Joints Base Body (12-inch tall), Realistic and detailed leather-like jacket, Long sleeve black shirt, Vest, Belt, Black pants, Black shoes, Normal Hands, Sunglasses, Handgun, Shotgun, 1:6 scale Lighter, Cigarette packet, Cigarette x 1.

Why Brother Production chose to produce this figure is beyond me. Perhaps producing a lesser known character played by Brad Pitt will keep them under the radar and not get noticed since it’s an unlicensed figure but at the same time, they can bank on someone famous to push their product’s appeal. I would love to see a 1/6 scale Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane 12-inch figure from “World War Z”. I already have a Brother Production Fighting Club “Tayler” 12-inch figure (Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden from “Fight Club”) – reviewed HEREHERE and HERE, a Hot Toys “Inglourious Basterds” Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine 12-inch figure (posted in my toy blog HERE and HERE) plus 1/6 scale Brad Pitt as Achilles from the movie “Troy (2004)” figure (pictures HERE)
