Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 American neo-noir science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. A sequel to the 1982 film Blade Runner, the film stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford. Set thirty years after the first film, Gosling plays K, a blade runner who uncovers a secret that threatens to instigate a war between humans and replicants.
This movie is hugely popular so it’s nice to see another 1:6 scale figure pop up from this science fiction cult favorite, despite it’s rather disappointing run at the box office overall. This figure is from Blackbox Toys a Chinese based 1:6 scale figure manufacturer who has previously released a version of this very same character, Replicant Killer. The first version was very well received by one sixth scale collectors and this new version makes some changes to the outfit, sculpt and accessories. Here’s a look at what’s included with the figure..
- 1 x 1:6 scale head sculpt ‘fan art’ inspired by the character seen in a popular science fiction sequel film
- 1 x faux fur lined open front leather coat (green color)
- 1 x long sleeved knitting sweater (black)
- 1 x modern stretch military chino pants
- 1 x pair of black suspenders
- 1 x BB2-body with relaxed hands and feet
- 1 x gun holding right hand
- 1 x strike tactical bootlace boots (black)
- 1 x blaster pistol
This version is dubbed Replicant Killler 2.0 (Guess Me Series) Blackbox Toys BBT9005S and it takes the head sculpt and adds a “dirty/damaged” look to it for Officer K / Ryan Gosling that some fans and 1:6 scale collectors might prefer in their display versus the original more clean option previously available. If you are a fan of the movie don’t hold your breath on a big company like Hot Toys tackling the license so it’s probably best to snag this one.. especially for the budget price that Blackbox Toys is making this available at – $139.99 USD
This figure is set to release sometime in Quarter 4 of 2018 so keep your eyes peeled and get your
to ensure you are not trying to find one on release day and they are sold out everywhere.
