Diamond Select and Hot Toys make The Expendables into The Essentials

June 18th, 2012 by Paul Allen Comments

Opinions remain divided over the original Expendables movie. A solid cast containing a who’s who of Hollywood hard men combined with plenty of action were sadly let down by a decidedly dodgy screenplay and acting.

With Hot Toys range of 12″ action figures due later in the year (above), Diamond Select have picked up the licence to produce 1/10th scale action figures (below).
The first series, set for a December release, includes Barney Ross, Hale Ceaser and Gunnar Jensen.
A bit of a surprise that Diamond Select have acquired the licence for this, these type of film licenses are usually picked up by NECA. Diamond are more known for the range of minimates and only current range of action figures are the Marvel Select range.
