Almost all 1/6 scale (otherwise known as 12" tall) figures are based on some real-life individual. Occasionally, you will come across a 12" figure based on a cartoon character, but those are few and far between. You're usually looking for tons of accessories, realistic clothing, and great sculpting work.
#3. Clone Trooper from Medicom Toy
2006 could be known as the year of the 12" Star Wars figures. Both Sideshow and Medicom have the Star Wars license and this 12" RAH Clone Trooper is one of our faves.
#2. Darth Maul from Sideshow Collectibles
The 1/6 scale Darth Maul already won the best sculpting award for the amazing facial sculpt (including horns), but the accolades don't stop there. It's by far and away one of the best 12" figures of the year...with a TON of accessories.
#1. Bruce Lee: Game of Death by Arnie Kim - WINNER!!
Arnie Kim sculpted a masterpiece, and those who could pony up the $299.99 for this figure saw that. Or if you were lucky enough to check out the Kaching Brand booth at Comic Con, you probably walked away drooling. 1045 Showroom still has some left....
