I Want That: Limited edition 1:6 scale Sherlock Holmes & John Watson figures
UK's Big Chief Studios has created a couple of fantastic and very life-like figures of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as John Watson from BBC's Sherlock. These 1:6th scale figures come with a diorama of 221B Baker Street, and a ton of accessories, including Sherlock's violin and skull, and Watson's walking stick.
Big Chief Studios has already sold out of the limited edition numbered pairs, but you can still purchase both figures for $475.89, or just one for $238.03, and both prices are before taxes. I know they're not cheap, but Big Chief does offer a payment plan. However, I still think my wallet would try to kill me in my sleep if I bought the figures.
You can pre-order the figures here, where you'll also find some more pictures and details on these great looking figures.
"Sherlock is the master of deduction, a consulting detective, the only one in the world as he invented the job. He is brilliant, a proper genius, and self-proclaimed high functioning sociopath. Should you ever meet him, he will no doubt read your family history in your mobile phone and your occupation in the way you hold yourself. He is not a man who has time for social graces, so you may find him more than just a little insulting at times. If you do have a problem to solve which is worth his time, open and shut domestics need not apply, Sherlock can be contacted via his website. Officially licensed by the makers of Sherlock, Hartswood Films, each figure features a fully realised likeness of Benedict Cumberbatch, suited in his trademark costume, together with signature accessories and a display base. Each Signature Edition figure comes with an authentic autograph plaque hand-signed by actor Benedict Cumberbatch."
"A man with a history of military service, nerves of steel and strong moral principle, Dr. John Watson is a crack shot marksman acclimatised to violence. Not the kind to make friends easily, John chose to befriend and trust Sherlock Holmes and they are now solving crimes together from their shared flat at 221B Baker Street. John now works as a GP at a local surgery, however, should you wish to book an appointment with him, expect him to be running late as he is prone to falling asleep at his desk after he and Sherlock have been working late on a case. He recounts his most recent experiences and has written up their cases on his blog. Officially licensed by the makers of Sherlock, Hartswood Films, each figure features a fully realised likeness of Martin Freeman, outfitted in his trademark costume, together with signature accessories and a display base. Each Signature Edition figure comes with an authentic autograph plaque hand-signed by actor Martin Freeman."
