2001: A Space Odyssey 1/6th Scale Figures

Go-Hero-2001-1

If you hadn't noticed, Go Hero announced the branding of the Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood figures (produced by Phicen and Executive Replicas) to being officially licensed (by Warner Brothers) 2001: A Space Odyssey 1/6th scale figures. While it probably won't have much of an impact on the figure itself, the figures can now be named after the characters in the film. Dulles played Dr. Dave Bowman and Lockwood played Dr. Frank Poole.

In addition to that tidbit being announced at New York Comic Con 2015, we also got our first peek at an additional spacesuit. The Blue Discovery Astronaut suit is available to pre-order (in addition to the two figures) for $279.99. The figures, which each include their own spacesuit, can be pre-ordered for $379.99 each. Of course, you can use the discount code plasticandplush to get $5.00 off your order from the Go Hero Shop.

Wilma is smart, tough, and doesn't take any guff. This daring dame fights to protect earth from the evil aliens, rogue robots, and dastardly villains. Her world of tomorrow is turned upside down when she meets a stranger from the distant past...a man named Buck Rogers! As the original "space girl", Wilma is the archetype for the many heroines of science-fiction and fantasy. With her clever mind, adventurous spirit and trusty “rocket pistol”, Wilma Deering has defied gravity and the stereotypical “damsel in distress” since the 1920s.

  • Rocket Pistol
  • Bubble Helmet
  • Anti-Gravity Leather "Jump Belt"

Sheena, Queen of the Jungle

Go-Hero-Sheena-1

Go Hero has announced all of the pertinent details regarding the upcoming Sheena, Queen of the Jungle 1/6th scale collectible figure. Along with Go Hero, Executive Replicas, and Phicen Ltd have collaborated to produce this first-ever figure of the original Queen of the Jungle. It's slated to retail for $149.99, when it goes up for pre-order later this month. 

As beautiful as she is dangerous, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, fiercely defends the rain forest and its denizens from all those who would do them harm. Originally conceived to be a counterpart to Burroughs' Tarzan, Sheena leapt off the pages of Fiction House comics in 1937 to become the very first female character to have her own title, four years before Wonder Woman. Since then, Sheena has been featured in comics, graphic novels, TV shows, and her own feature film. Although there have been many imitators, there will only ever be one jungle queen.  

The 1/6th scale Sheena, Queen of the Jungle features the following:

  • Portrait of Sheena, Queen of the Jungle
  • Rooted Hair
  • Phicen NEW 1:6 Scale Seamless Poseable Body

REVIEW: Doc Savage – Double Danger Deluxe Version

Doc-Savage-14

‘The Man of Bronze’ - Doc Savage was created by publisher Henry W. Ralston and editor John L. Nanovic at Street and Smith Publications, with additional works by Lester Dent. Doc’s popularity transcended the pulps moving into radio, comic books, and a feature film. Doc has been interpreted by some of the greatest artists. This beloved adventurer is considered to be the model for the ‘super hero’ with his strength, intelligence, speed, physique, and wealth – he even has a ‘Fortress of Solitude’. The name Doc Savage is synonymous with courage, danger, and adventure - remaining a heroic pop-culture icon to this day.

The Doc Savage 1/6th scale collectible figure comes from Go Hero and Executive Replicas. This is one of several collaborations that the two companies have worked on in the past or are working on into the future. The Doc Savage figure is available in two different versions: the Silver Age version and the Go Hero Exclusive Double Danger Deluxe version. For this review, I’ll be looking at the Double Danger Deluxe (DDD).

Not knowing much about Doc Savage, I had to do some research. I wasn’t surprised to find out that one of the professions of this fictional character was that of a doctor. But I was a little surprised that he wasn’t at all related to ‘The Macho Man’... Fans of the character will be delighted to know that this is the first time the good Doc has been made available as a 1/6th scale figure. 

The DDD version of Doc Savage has a few extras. The most noticeable is that you get an alternate likeness – the wavy-haired Golden Age likeness head. In addition to that, there’s a shirt that’s not ripped (the ripped one is standard), and you get an additional weapon – the Golden Age Art Deco Style Raygun 2.

Doc-Savage-22

Speaking of those weapons, all four are die-cast metal. They’re very solid (heavy) and give the figure that high-class feel. One thing you’ll need to look out for. Since those guns do weigh more than a plastic, watch out for the wrist joints. More than once, I found that the weight of the gun was enough to give good old Doc Savage a wrist sprain…so I had to mess around with the wrist joint to ward off limp wrists. But you have a number of options on just how you want to equip the figure for display.

Price-wise, this falls in to where the high-end 1/6th scale market has gone recently. The days of the $99 high-end 1/6th scale figures are over. Most of that is because those old high-end figures look a little ugly compared to the current crop of high-end stuff. The sculpting’s better now. The paintwork is better now. Even the clothing is better now. For example, Doc Savage’s shirt actually has little buttons and buttonholes. It’s a pain in the ass to get him dressed (try using tweezers), but it makes for a more realistic end-product.

Doc-Savage-11

So I guess the big question is whether or not you go with the Silver Age Version or Go Hero’s DDD Exclusive. Personally, I’m a fan of the gruff, weathered looking Doc Savage. His Golden Age look reminds me of Super-Man or a half dozen other “good guys” from that age of comic books. Like he spent too much time in front of the mirror doing his hair. The Silver Age Doc looks like he probably got into a bar fight sometime within the past week. He likely ate beef jerky for lunch. And he’s probably yelled at the neighborhood kids for playing wiffle ball in his front yard, more than once.

As Gary Lockwood’s first ever figure, it features his 1960’s likeness on Phicen's new jointed male body. 

The figure is currently available to pre-order for $379.99. It's expected to begin shipping in Q3 of 2015.

This 1960's likeness of Keir Dullea is the first 1/6th scale figure ever produced based on the actor. Of course, this is licensed by the actor and has nothing to do with a certain film that he might have starred in.

Created by "Lars Anderson", The Domino Lady is a masked pulp heroine first appearing in a 1936 issue of Saucy Romantic Adventures. The Domino Lady is really University of California, Berkeley-educated socialite Ellen Patrick. When her father, District Attorney Owen Patrick, is murdered she puts on a domino mask to avenge him. She is armed with .45 pistols, a syringe full of 'knock-out' serum, and her beauty. The Domino Lady charms, outwits, and allures her adversaries.
