12" Art Figures AF-003 SAVES (The Punisher) mini review

Hi all , i just picked this figure up during the weekend and it totally blew me away:)
I had pre ordered it some time ago and have been anticipating it ever since.
Now we have a GOOD 1/6 Punisher figure lol.
Feel free to click on any of the pics to get a larger view!!

Out of box
 First off i'll confess that i'm a huge punisher fan so this review might be biased. Been one since i read my first Marvel Punisher comics 20 over years ago. Anti-heroes were just gaining popularity back then.
Punisher is just a normal human with no special powers but he's went up against all odds with the likes of Ghostrider, Wolverine, Spiderrman, Daredevil and many more.
 I'll be calling this figure Punisher/ Frank Castle in this review as 'SAVES' sounds weird.
This figure is based off the most recent movie 'Punisher War Zone' starring Ray Stevenson as the Punisher.
There is 3 movies made of the Punisher thus far and i loved all of them.

The 1st starring Dolph Lundgren who looked alot like the punisher penciled in the comics by Whilce Portacio and the 2nd starring Thomas Jane as the Punisher.
This 3rd Punisher starring Ray Stevenson looks alot like the one penciled by John Romita Jr. during 1992 spin off of the same name Punisher: Warzone.But thats just my opinion :P
Warzone had Punisher going up against Jig-Saw.
Hope they make another with either Bushwacker, Kingpin or Daredevil would be great.
Anyways lets get the ball rolling!!

I have not included any pictures of the box as i took a dented box from my supplier as he knew i was going to discard it anyways lol.

Out of the box the figure is dressed in black tactical long sleeve shirt and pants. He also sports a black leather belt, a pair of black socks and shoes.
The figure has tight joints and features a pair of bendable hands with fingerless black gloves.
Half Geared
Weapons Check: 2 Beretta 92FS Inox handgun, 1SIG Sauer P228 handgun, 5 handgun magazines, 2 drop-down holster (one for each leg).1 more for attaching to body vest. 1 M4 Carbine Rifle with scope and 2 magazines, black combat knife and sheath.
Gears Check: 1 body vest , 1 black padded combat belt and 2 pouches.
Stands Check: 1 diorama base.

The workmanship of the costume is not bad by my standards and the buckles are solid and don't break easy.Everything fits where its suppose to go. I only experienced problem fitting the 2 buttons that secure the neck collar to the body vest as the pins are very small. All else are great.

The diorama base is a nice touch added by Art Figures.

The skull on his body vest is also well done as it gives a fading effect to make it look realistic.
All 3 handgun hostlers hold the guns well and each have a strap to secure the gun.
The combat knife also fits into the sheath nicely.

The M4 Carbine rifle is also nicely sculpted but doesn't feature moving safety switches , chamber covers or labelling. The stock is extendable though. The Rifle sling fits around the neck collar nicely also.

I have read online that a lot of folks find his facial expression as depressed. I think he just looks grim in my opinion just like the comics.

Final impressions: This figure totally rocks! He doesn't have a lot of accessories but what he has already gets the job done. Any 1/6 collector will have no problem adding weapons to this figure lol.
All in all i strongly recommend this figure to all and non Punisher fans out there. At a very affordable price point, great quality & workmanship, great gear for bashing you have a win win situation.
Hope this review has been of help to you...Ciao!!!
