Blade Runner is one of those seminal science fiction films that wasn’t exactly hailed as one when it first released in theaters. It was only much later that Ridley Scott’s tale of a cyberpunk future filled with Replicants, burnt out ex-cops and gallons of rain became the cult classic that it is today.
So it’s sort of fitting that its taken us this long to get a proper Sixth Scale figure of the film’s protagonist. Sure, its only technically inspired by Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard, but it will do nicely.
At this point in pop culture, a character like Rick Deckard seems a dime a dozen but back in the 1980s it was an interesting choice placing the worn down detective archetype into a science fiction story. Harrison Ford then took that and ran with it and this figure from Dark Toys has managed to capture that personality fairly well with their sculpts. The likeness of Ford is even good, which is always a challenge.
The tailoring on the clothing looks solid and I’m an outspoken proponent of accessories, so this release makes me happy just in that regard. While I’m not very familiar with the manufacturer, the promotional photos alone have my interest so I’m eager to get this in hand to judge for myself.
