Kitbash Leon and Mathilda in "The Professional" by Russel1

(Picture Source: Russel1 via OSW Forum)

When I was browsing through OSW Forum this evening, I found this amazing work done by Russel1. He made most of the accessories such as leather tactical vest with tool holder and holster, grenades, knife, briefcase and violin case, etc. He even painted the head sculpt of Mathilda. I like this kitbash and all his self-made accessories. Really take my hat off to him. Furthermore, "Leon - The Professional" is my all time favourite movie.

The International

Despite the good acting of Clive Owen and Naomi Watts, I found the story is confusing, boring and still there are some parts unanswered. The only part I enjoyed is the gunshot scenes in the museum and my overall movie rating is 2/5. You may read the plot via wikipedia here.

The story is about an ex-Government Agent, Bryan Mills (played by Liam Neeson) went to France to rescue his daughter after she was kidnapped by Albanian sex-traffickers while on her holiday trip. Although the plot is simple and predictable, the acting of Liam Neeson and his intelligence and fighting tactics riveted my attention. The moves were sharp and violent and it was so satisfying to see Neeson beat and killed those baddies. My overall rating for this non-stop action movie is 3.5/5 and a MUST watch movie!!

Medicom - Masked Rider Den-O "Sword Form" (con't)

Thanks to "Don" for introducing me the "Masked Rider Den-O". After watching the first few episodes of its TV series, I start to like the storyline as there are numerous comedic factors between the main character "Ryotaro" and the first Imagin "Momotaro". I like the Sword Form Outfit because of its simple design and colour combination on the helmet and body armour. Besides, red is one of my favourite colours. Guess I will finish watching the entire TV series within these few months as I really enjoy the show. Looking back to the figure, Medicom is really good in making its Masked Rider series. Every parts of the figure including helmet, body amour, body suit, belt and sword are well made and painted. Everything looks great and screen accurate. You may view its box packaging here. For my overall rating, I give a 5 out of 5.

Medicom - Masked Rider Den-O "Sword Form"

This is the first Medicom masked rider I bought since the start of my 12inch figure collection. See the colour and design of the box packaging, nice right? There are a lot of posing hands and accessories come with this piece. Will do a review and upload more pictures in my next post.

Enterbay - President David Palmer Part 2

As compared to the head sculpt of Bauer, Palmer likeness head sculpt is slightly "out" as the shape of the head is a bit "round". But overall likeness of "Dennis Haysbert" is there (90% close to the real person). Similarly, amazing facial texture can be found on the head sculpt as we can even see pock marks and scars on the face. As for the outfit, I do not like the suit as this is made by nylon material and it looks kind of "cheap" to me. The blue colour striped shirt, leather shoes and belts look great. The small flag lapel pin on the jacket is not "real" pin and it is just a normal print. Initially the tie is not tied properly (too big for the knot and tie length under the knot is too short), I then untied the knot and re-tie it and end up I spoilt the colour print of the tie due to re-ironing. Anyway, that is not a big problem. I still love this figure and he definitely looks awesome on my display shelves. You may click here to see the box packaging.

Enterbay - Jack Bauer Part 2

I think there is no doubt for Enterbay to deserve our compliments as these are the best head sculpts produced besides its Bruce Lee series. The facial texture is damn good that it makes the head sculpt 99% close to the real person "Kiefer Sutherland". I also need to highlight the eyes are "separated" from the facial skin and this is the new technique Enterbay used for perfect likeness. The paint work on the head sculpt is equally good. As for the handgun, holster, silencer and flashlight are nothing much to comment here as the quality and paint work on those accessories are not up to the current standard. The messenger bag and the watch are the only accessories I like. The outfits are close to TV screen. Surprisingly, no belt is given as this should be included as part of the outfits. The box packaging for this figure is pretty nice too. I highly recommend this masterpiece if you are a super fan of the TV series "24" (overall rating: 4.5/5).
