One of the most popular characters in the Valiant Universe is getting his own high end action figure. Of course we are talking about Bloodshot. Via a press release yesterday Valiant Entertainment and Phicen announced that pre-orders were now open for their 1/6 scale action figure of Bloodshot.
Here is the description of the character provided by Valiant:
Brought back from the dead and infused with cutting-edge nanotechnology, Bloodshot is a nearly unstoppable killing machine. His enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and healing made him the perfect weapon. After defying his programming and escaping his masters at Project Rising Spirit, Bloodshot now fights to rediscover the secret of his true identity…but remains haunted by the past that nearly destroyed him.
The figure is poseable and fully articulated along with the following accessories, you can check out the images that were sent to us below as well:
Samurai sword and sheath with carrying strap
Three handguns with accompanying holsters and thigh strap
Assault rifle with underslung shotgun
Two pairs of interchangeable hands
Belt with two additional magazine pouch sets
T-shirt, pants, and boots
Naturalistic figure base and fire hydrant
It makes sense as Sony Pictures will begin filming Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel sometime this summer. He also appears in Valiant’s Bloodshot Salvation written by Jeff Lemire with artwork by Doug Braithwaite. In November he will also appear in Bloodshot Rising Spirit set to hit comic book shops in November written by Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson with artwork by Ken Lashley.
But the figure does have a hefty price. The Bloodshot figure can be pre-ordered through the Phicen website for $159.00 USD. As a big fan of the character this may be a collectible I will be picking up. What are your thoughts on the figure? Any Bloodshot fans out there? Let us know in the comment section below!
