Now this is a story all about… No wait, wrong thing. Today we’re taking a look a the Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts Suicide Squad Deadshot. Based on Will Smith‘s (PHILLY WHAT!) portrayal of the DC Comics sharpshooter in the DCEU movie, it covers all the angles from the likeness to the suit to his rifle. Like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn earlier in the year, this Deadshot is dead-on with the Will Smith face sculpt, almost scary. Some angles lose it, but straight on and from most side angles you see it and know that’s Will Smith. Very hard to do on a smaller side 6 inch figure. The body features a wide range of articulation, nothing is missing. Armor and weapon packs seen on the suit pop off via pegs. The alternate head with mask is no joke either, his eye scope and textured leather is there. Suicide Squad have given us some of the best S.H. Figuarts to date, hitting movie likenesses with high end materials and articulation. Other than moving up in scale, not much more is there to want for. Let’s take a closer look at the Fresh Prince of Kill Shots after the break!

Bandai Japan / Tamashii Nations have been producing some really great alternate universe versions of classic Star Wars characters for a couple years now. The Star Wars Movie Realization line feature (to date) Empire aligned characters in ancient Samurai themes. So far we have 2 versions of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Royal Guard, Sandtrooper, Sandtrooper Commander, and Stormtroopers in 3 samruai themed flavors. There are also more on the way with Jango Fett, Proto Armor Bob Fett, and Darth Maul.
Today we are taking a look at one of those Stormtroopers – the Yumiashigaru Stormtrooper – aka “The Archer”. He comes with sculpt that mixes existing Stormtrooper and Royal Guard bodies along with some new work on the head and shoulder guards. On the back, he sports his arrow pack and bow, which are both futuristic / steampunk in nature. This line mixes classic, futuristic and Steampunk-like styling giving it a unique look. At a beefy 7 inch scale, they have a great presence on any display shelf. Let’s take a look after the break with over 55 HD images!
