Review 1: HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure aka Die-Hard 5

On Facebook, HPC Toys describe themselves as "A bunch of freaks that love 1/6 scale collectibles, decided to start their own brand. Providing various movie star figures to the collectors!" Check them out on FB and tell them you LIKE their page HERE. They deserve our support for wanting to make affordable collectible figures for us :)

This is a first-part review of HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure. When you read the title "A Cop Never Dies", immediately a certain movie character comes to mind. You instantly think of Bruce Willis' John McClane's character from the Die Hard film series, where he is known for more action, little talk, sardonic yet wisecracking single-liners, quick quips, and the famous catch-phrase "Yippee-ki-yay, motherf#@^er".


HPC Toys first project Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A cop never dies" comes with: Newly sculpted 1/6 scale realistic head sculpt, Narrow shoulder muscle PVC and ABS body (12-inch figure), two Extra hands (4 hands in Total), A black pistol, A navy blue jacket, A white and blue plaid shirt, A white t-shirt / vest, Brown pants, A Leather-like bag, Black leather shoes and A movie-like background attached with the figure box. It is limited to 500 pieces worldwide. Better get yours while you still can because this is a very good product and I highly recommend it to everyone who collects 12-inch figures. For purchasing the figure the best way is to buy it from HPC Toys directly on FB (link HERE). Scroll down to see all the pictures. This is a GREAT figure and product from HPC Toys.




The box packaging (pictured above) is simple and clean: all black with their logo and product name. Opening the cover reveals the movie-like background of a fiery explosion they have included with the packaging. GREAT for taking pictures or just to use for display purposes :)

Inside the box packaging you'll find the figure nicely tucked inside the foam / black sponge tray which holds everything neatly together without the need to use twisty ties. Easy to remove and put back.


The 1/6 scale accessories that come with the HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure include: A navy blue jacket, A white and blue plaid shirt, a Leather-like bag, two Extra hands and a black pistol


Guess what John McClane (Bruce Willis) was wearing when he arrived in Moscow, Russia to help out his son Jack McClane as seen in the latest Die-Hard film, "A Good Day to Die Hard", the fifth installment in the Die Hard film series? Answer: A navy blue jacket, A white and blue plaid shirt, A white t-shirt / vest and Brown pants ;p


Here's HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure straight out of the box, wearing the white t-shirt / vest, brown pants and black shoes



Scroll down to see close-up pictures / images of the HPC Toys Film Series 001 "A Cop Never Dies" 1/6 scale head sculpt which bears a very good resemblance and likeness to Bruce Willis who plays John McClane in the Die Hard film series


Also check out the very well stitched and tailored 1/6 scale white vest he has on. Very NICE :)




This is the 12-inch figure body that HPC Toys has produced. It is a Narrow shoulder muscle PVC and ABS body and it is GOOD. Joints are nice and tight which allows you to pose the figure and let the figure hold the poses without toppling over.


Check out 1/6 scale John McClane's ripped body ;p not bad for an old man haha

HPC Toys Film Series 001 "A Cop Never Dies" 1/6 scale black shoes (chair NOT included - used for posing purposes)


They are more like boots as they go up to his calves.


The boots are made of black suede leather-like material. Very well made :) Quality finish


Check out the bottom / soles of the boots. They have studs. Nice details


The 1/6 scale pistol that comes with HPC Toys Film Series 001 1/6 scale "A Cop Never Dies" 12-inch figure is the FIRST I've seen that has a slide release lever. Most 1/6 scale guns nowadays come with the standard removable pistol magazine and movable slide as well as hammer but this is the first 1/6 scale pistol that comes with the additional slide release lever.


Without releasing the slide release lever, you cannot move the slide backwards, just like with an actual 1:1 scale gun. That is COOL. It's certainly a nice touch on HPC Toys part.

Would you mind sending me a picture, or posting a picture, of your lighting set up? I'm really curious how you take such great photos!

Thanks for the compliments Nick. Regarding the lighting set up, I'll send you a pic soon. It's not a problem at all :) CHEERS

Alex,
This handgun appears to be a Browning Hi Power 9mm,and that is the safety which blocks the trigger when the hammer is back.

I own the actual pistol

Thanks for sharing Sid :) I looked it up on the web and couldn't find anything on it. This is GREAT!
