NECA has revealed that their upcoming Bioshock 2 Brute Splicer will be a Toys “R” Us Exclusive.
A First-Rate Ruffian
Top man, indeed. The Brute Splicer may be the biggest target in BioShock 2, but it’s going to take more than aim to bring him down. Our latest BioShock action figure is the Brute Splicer, and it’s arriving as a Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive.
The Brute Splicer was initially a part of a third series of BioShock figures, and if this one does well, we’ve still got a few other Splicers up our sleeve. But considering the tale behind this cockney-accented London native, we thought this might be a good time to highlight his story:
“As a skilled boxer, he left London behind to make his way in Rapture. Quick to anger and bigger than most, he found that he rarely fit in with other men. When the city cracked open, he changed with it. The flooded streets tested him man against man and his skills made him a first-rate ruffian — never afraid to hit below the belt. After years of hoarding ADAM he’s now capable of inhuman feats of strength — hurling insults one minute, tables the next.”
When “Performance Enhancing” Goes Wrong
The Brute Splicer was created when Leo Hartwig combined Sports Boost and Armored Shell gene tonics. Seems like a pretty cool idea, except that Leo tested the formula on himself and, whoops, he became the very first Brute Splicer. Now Brute Splicers can be found wandering around Rapture’s underwater dystopia, spewing epithets and pummeling players every chance he gets.
A massive figure in both height and girth, the Brute Splicer is just the latest in a long line of top notch NECA goodies for this unique series of games. Don’t forget to check out our Big Daddy Ultra Deluxe figure, 2010′s SDCC Exclusive Eleanor Lamb, the full-size Welder Mask Replica, the EVE Hypo Syringe Prop Replica, and the always adorable Big Daddy Plush Doll.
