Well, if you weren’t surprised by the deep dives into film history that Sixth Scale figure manufacturer, Present Toys, has been making with their recent Third Party announcements, then you probably won’t be shocked at their latest preorder. Jake Gyllenhaal’s sociopathic photojournalist character, Lou Bloom, from the new-noir thriller, Nightcrawler, is available for preorder now.
I am a huge fan of Present Toys choices when it comes to these movie figures. A film like Nightcrawler and its main character would never even be a consideration for a larger toy company like Hot Toys or Sideshow Collectibles.
Gyllenhaal’s portrayal of Bloom in the film is extremely unnerving and creepy, which makes this a fun figure to add to the collection. Due to it’s subject matter and unsettling tone, Nightcrawler wasn’t a huge hit at the box office, but critically it was a favorite. It’s definitely a role that deserves to be seen and remembered, so why not a 1/6 scale representation?
The likeness of the actor looks good, though you never can tell until a final production piece is in hand. Gylenhaal is a tough actor to nail down when it comes to getting his portrait right, so hopefully these promotional photos are good indicators for what will eventually ship out to buyers.
Present Toys PT-SP30 Nightcrawler (Jake Gyllenhaal) Sixth Scale Figure is available for preorder now and is scheduled for a Q3, 2022 release. Pre-Order for $169.99 USD here @ OneSixthOutlet.com
