Call him ‘Snake’ – Introducing the Snake Plissken Sixth Scale FigureTuesday, October 22, 2013
Set in a then near-future, the 1981 film Escape from New York introduced movie audiences to deadliest man alive, Snake Plissken. In need of a bad enough dude to rescue the president, the condemned criminal and former military hero is sent on a dangerous mission in the maximum security prison island of Manhattan, where “breaking out is impossible and breaking in is insane.”
“Call me Snake.”
Amidst the low budget yet visually stunning cavalcade of nonstop action, director John Carpenter and actor Kurt Russell knew it’d take more than an eye-patch to make an icon — although that certainly didn’t hurt. The hard-as-nails misanthrope with a smug sense of humor and bad attitude quickly fought his way through a cesspool of cyberpunk scumbags, and into the hearts of filmgoers everywhere.
Bust out the Bandstand Boogie, Sideshow Collectibles is ready to blow the future apart! We’re proud to present the Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure, leading anti-hero of the 80s cult classic Escape from New York.
Chock full o’ attitude, we’ve brought the all-American escape artist to life with a highly detailed likeness of Snake, as portrayed by Kurt Russell in his first feature role. Sporting his full abdomen cobra tattoo, Plissken is decked out in his trademark duds, including eyepatch, muscle shirt and distressed leather jacket, urban camo pants, shin guards and combat boots.
“Where are my guns?“
Ready to take on the Duke, we’ve armed the one-eyed warrior with more than banter. He’s got a complete arsenal of modified firepower holstered at his side, toting the USPF-issued submachine gun with detachable silencer, scope and spare mags, his sidearm revolver with scope, and an array of throwing stars.
Sideshow Exclusive Edition
To complete the mission and ensure the survival of the human race, the Exclusive Edition includes an additional swap out hand with cassette tape containing the President’s top secret nuclear fusion information (below).
The Snake Plissken Sixth Scale Figure is an ultimate tribute to the 80s cult classic badass, and must-have for fans of John Carpenter’s ‘Escape’ saga!
The regular and Exclusive editions are each priced at $159.99, with installment payment plans available for as low as $40.00/month.
