I keep going back and forth if I should get this for my stepdad, he is far from a toy collector but a huge John Wayne fan. If this was $250 it would be easier.

Well.... Yes 😅
I grew up watchin Basil in Sherlock movies - my actual first recollection of the character of Sherlock was him and I always found him to be thin, lanky, and gaunt. As to this figure like the real Wayne looks like he may have skipped leg day but he definitely didn’t skip breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 🤣

Yup, a steak-raised Basil who gave up the pipe. The nose and grin are very Basilesque. Does any good figure of Rathone exists, by the way?

I’ve seen some budget 1/6 figures back in the day on the Monsters in Motion website but they looked to be amateur customs at best and not worth the $150 and up price tag. They also have a Cushings Sherlock too that I was tempted by just for the outfit and accessories.

Infinite Statue and Kaustic Plastik have nailed it in all respects. It would be good if an alternative head sculpt became available with a removable hat. As to the price compared to some custom figures it is more than reasonable at the moment, It is the import fees that make the products expensive. I hope a tribute to Sergio Leone may materlise In the future with Charles Bronson as Harmonica, now that would be real good. I am of the view that there is a thirst out there for western figures. Lim Toys Gunslinger is showing the way, it shall become a grail piece.

I like this figure enough that I bought it from SideShow a few days ago.

I was looking for something else altogether on eBay when the 1/6 figure of John Wayne as he appeared in True Grit came up. I hadn't heard of nor had I seen this figure before.

I was impressed, and, although I didn't need to go spending the money on it, having just bought a 1:6 Miles Morales Spider-Man figure last week.. well, I went for it.

I have to say a few things, though...It is not perfect, I agree. If you wanted it to look exactly like John Wayne as he had looked in True Grit, to look like a precise duplicate of him in 1:6 scale right down to the hairs on his arms and the lines on his face, then be prepared to pay maybe $2,000.00 for such an exact replica of him.

It looks a lot like him to me, dead on, actually!

The clothes are good enough. They could be better, I agree, but they aren't going to be perfect.

Perfect is a state of mind.. and, it is an unattainable ideal.

I don't necessarily agree with some of John Wayne's views or values, but he was a hero of mine when I was growing up. I watched all of his movies that were on the tv. This is back in the days when there was no cable tv.. and there were only 7 channels at most.

True Grit is a great movie. Westerns aren't my favorite thing - unless they are done as well as this movie was. I won't extol the movies' virtues - several of you have already got that covered.

I look forward to the figure's arrival next week,

Agreed, Lim Toys is on another level and I Love supporting companies like that. Their gunslinger (Arthur) is a masterpiece in 1/6 scale. From the multiple looks that can be obtained from one figure to the sheer number of accessories, to the details on the base body that most people will never see. All for a price point that should make major 1/6 scale manufacturers take notice. I’m not ashamed to say I bought 3 of them and the extra head. Can’t wait until Marston goes up for pre-order.

Ordered Sunday - received Wednesday. From Italy to North Carolina….I’m impressed. Also blown away by the figure. I’m not sure why this piece is getting the hate it does. The figure and tailoring is outstanding. The head sculpt is pure JW all the way and the paint apps are excellent. The outfits and accessories are all expertly crafted. I did adjust my spurs because mine for some reason were so far up on the figures boot/ankle where they should be around the heel of the boot. But that’s the only thing I can ding this set on. Love everything he came with.
Also like the fact as an exclusive or limited edition set this feels like an exclusive. Be it the art print, or shirt, or the extra diorama magnetic base. When so many figure exclusive now come with an extra hand or clear tiny holographic bobble which will never leave the box or tray. It’s nice to see and feel like the exclusive is actually something substantial. Did a quick review I’ll post on my channel, in the meantime here are some pictures of my set.
Take care - Jase

The more I look at it, the more I see... Basil Rathbone

Way off topic, but I would love a figure of Rathbone as Captain Esteban Pasquale, (and Power as Zorro).
Not sure if these are in Kaustic Plastik's purview, though it seem like something they could take on.

The eternal problem with captured likeness is that we all see things differently and seek perfection. This is another reason why Lim Toys Gunslinger delivers for me, the figure does not have to resemble anyone, especially if one has not played the games. Have I mentioned I rate Lim Toys Gunslinger as top shelf in 1.6? They have created a thirst for the genre which cannot be quenched.

I love the figure. Well done.

The magnet base SUCKS. Great concept but weak magnets ruin it, He falls over constantly in a relative stagnant pose. Going to have to find a new stand. Not good.

Hi, I acquired the Web Exclsuve which has a detailed base for magnet or post option, I use the post. I reckon with care the standard base could be made to support a post. The Lim Toys Gunslinger base is a good alternative.
