Heroic "Perfection Killer" Review II: 1/6 Léon, the Professional

Here's 1/6 Léon with his knit cap and long wool coat (continued from the previous post)

These are all part of the Heroic 1:6 scale "Perfection Killer" set including the black long sleeve sweater (optional) as well as another pair of hands

Here's a screen grab of the vest Léon (Jean Reno) wears under his long wool coat. As mentioned in the previous post, the leather holster for his pistol is missing in this 1:6 scale version, replaced by the sheath for his knife in its place instead.

A close view of the 1:6 Colt Anaconda. Léon had lots of guns in his arsenal but I don't remember he had a Colt Anaconda but then again, I'm no gun expert. His preference was for the Smith & Wesson Model 586 which he sometimes used along with his Beretta 92FS.


And here are the other accessories that come with this Heroic "Perfection Killer" box set: Léon's plant and weapons case with six grenades as well as additional guns. Not as well stocked as the one in the film but I'm not complaining. I'm just glad they made it in 1:6 scale for collectors like us :)

Closer look at the 1/6 weapons case that Léon carries with him. Other guns included are a M1911-A1 .45 ACP and a Glock (?)

Léon with his plant and gun case

The potted plant Léon nurtures, which Mathilda replants at the end of the movie, is an aglaonema.


The 1:6 gun case is pretty well made except the catch doesn't work at all. Minor gripe, especially since this box set came at a most pocket-friendly price :)


Last but not least, Léon just loves his milk

I think the 1:6 milk carton is the weakest item of the set which is why I left it till the last. After putting in quite a bit of effort with everything else, the milk carton is really disappointing.


And there you have it - Heroic "Perfection Killer" who is basically a 1/6 Léon, the Professional from the 1994 movie of the same name.

Love this, I was wondering if they included the plant and the milk.

Good Stuff!

Yup, I was pretty glad they did although I feel that the milk carton could have been much better.

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

yeah James, the bag is one of the holy grails of 1:6 for me. Glad that some company finally made one, and at a very reasonable price too >_<

Hi, is it possible to give me the dimension of the gun case? Wanted to buy one online but seems to be very rare now...

Thanks in advance :)
Max

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

Hi Max, the gun case measures 7.5cm L x 4cm D x 5cm H closed. Hope this helps CHEERS

Hi Alex, just found your blog, and love it. Great job, keep up the good work. I'm very new to 1/6 collecting, and just purchased the Perfection Killer set. I was wondering if you knew what bodies are best for the included heads, as mine won't fit on the True Type body I purchased. Seems like the hole in the head is a bit too small for the 2 included posts.
thanks, Winston in Las Vegas, USA

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

Hi Winston, welcome to the world of 1/6 :) I think I used a TTL body for mine as it was a cheaper option to the more expensive Hot Toys True Type body. I didn't have any problems with connecting the head to the body. CHEERS

Winston Walker said...

Thanks so much for the reply. I also have the cheaper TTL body, but the included neck post was a wee bit too large, so I boiled the head a bit, and it now fits just fine. :-)
I'm new, but learning. lol

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

Haha it seems you are quite the fast learner :) boiling a bit or using a hair dryer to soften the rubber parts to make it softer and easier to manage always helps. Enjoy the new hobby my friend. Be careful as this hobby can sink its hooks into you pretty quickly too and before you know it, you become hooked like me LOL

Winston Walker said...

Oh yes, I think i'm hooked already. It's been less than 2 months and I have 2 Bruce Lee figures, 2 Chow Yun Fat, 1 Jet Li, This new Jean Reno, and 2 more on the way! I'll try to keep it under control. haha :-)

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

"Keep it under control?" Mwahahahaha (evil laughter) Famous last words ;p That's what I told my better half in 1994 when I started collecting and look where I am now :> a very happy collector

Winston Walker said...

HAHA - I know, "keeping it under control" is probably a very silly idea. I guess spending my money on these things is better than blowing it all in the Vegas casinos. For now it's very fun, and can be very creative doing the custom things. I've got a lot to learn,and that's fun as well. :-)

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

Gotta agree with you about spending money on these better than in the casinos :) wise decision indeed haha and FUN is what it's all about for us. Have FUN and enjoy the hobby

Winston Walker said...

Thanks again, and thanks for your blog. I'm loving reading it, and it's very informative. Chat soon, Take Care.
