PRESS RELEASE: "Ladies and Gentlemen, we are excited to introduce our next M ICON, who is the legendary Hollywood actor - MARLON BRANDO. May(be) some of you had already guess right, because James Dean and Marlon Brando were both Midwestern farm boys who were recast as rebels. In this 1953 version, we are bringing you a life-accurate 1/6th scale Brando in 50s', features with real fabric outfit with leather-liked black jacket, T-shirt, jeans and boots. Didn't we satiate your unquenchable thirst? If this is your cup of tea, please act fast to preorder yours before he leaves with his bike!"
frankly, im underwhelmed ... or maybe the intrigue of faint+grainy scanned-mag pics got the better of me (heh) ... the only thing that grabbed at me was his biker-jacket + groovy-belt. but as the disclaimer had disclaimed: *Product shown is not final, pending licensor approval* - so there. scheduled for a 2nd quarter-drop, the figure stands approx 30cm tall and comes with over 20 points of articulation ... im still trying to figure out what's the difference with this Black Rebel-exclusive edition (besides the ill-fitting jeans), which is going for ¥19,800 w/ tax (US$199+ / SGD$276) with an August-drop date ... /// MORE PICS HERE
