Present Toys Brings The Heat With Two New 1/6 FiguresJose Lopez
Sixth Scale figure collectors get so many figures based on large franchises and companies like Marvel, Star Wars and DC that it can feel like a welcome change when figures are announced from one-off films or shows that aren’t a small part of some larger multimedia universe.
Present Toys has recently been scratching that itch a lot and we’re all the better for it, in my opinion. Their latest reveal is not one, but two figures inspired on characters from what is arguably the best cops and robbers film ever made: Heat.
Besides the fact that Michael Mann wrote and directed an excellent crime thriller, he also casted actors extraordinaire Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro in their first film together, which pushes Heat to ludicrous levels of awesome. Present Toys has chosen to usher Pacino’s and DeNiro’s roles of Vincent Hanna and Neil McCauly, respectively, into 1/6 scale and they look as accurate to the film as collectors are likely to ever get in this lifetime.
The releases are somewhat light on accessories, but there really isn’t much more Present could have included so I’m not too bothered. The likenesses of the actors circa 1995 are solid and one glance at these figures should jog the memory of anyone who has seen and enjoyed the film.
I love that Present Toys is giving us characters from film classics like Heat and I’m eager to see what they give us next.
The Present Toys PT-19 Neil McCauley Sixth Scale Figure and the Present Toys PT-18 LT. Vincent Hanna Sixth Scale Figure are available for pre-order separately or together as a Figure Bundle. Both figures are slated for release Q4 2021.
