1/6 Resident Evil Alice Milla Jovovich custom figure

"Resident Evil" or "Biohazard: Genesis" is a 2002 science fiction horror movie starring Milla Jovovich as an amnesiac heroine Alice, who together with a band of Umbrella Corporation commandos attempt to escape a secret underground facility, The Hive (a top-secret genetic research facility owned by the Umbrella Corporation located deep beneath Raccoon City) which is now overrun with zombies. The movie was based on the "Resident Evil" video game developed by Capcom.

Came across this lovely head sculpt (body can be improved) of Milla Jovovich as Alice floating around on e-bay with a asking price of US$690!!! CRAZY - she is NICE but not US$690 nice. Some people really have the cheek to ask for a ridiculous price. Please please can some 1/6 manufacturer produce a similar head sculpt already so that I can wipe the drool off my face. There's already Kristanna Loken of "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" fame and there's going to be Hot Toys' Scarlett Johansson as Silken Floss (va-va-vroom!!!) Somebody give us a real good Milla Jovovich head sculpt already!






In the movie poster, Alice (Milla Jovovich) holds the H&K G36K with AG36 grenade launcher by the AG36 grenade launcher's pistol grip. I've posted a picture of an SOF soldier with a Heckler & Koch (H&K) G36 assault rifle with dual sight system and 40mm AG36 underbarrel grenade launcher before (link here) but would love to pose the gun with this figure - SIGH!


Hot Toys had already released figures from Resident Evil 4 or Biohazard 4, namely Jack Krauser (link here) and Leon S Kennedy (link here) and announced Biohazard 5 figures 

But sadly, no Milla Jovovich in sight :(

Is that the Buy-it-Now price? No bidding? US$690 sounds like a ridiculous starting point but they're probably confident some Milla-Jovovich-loving person will shell out that much for her. I can think of Europeans and their fantastic currency, which allows them to pay less than 100 Euros/Pounds (Random UK collector: wot a bargain!) for the stuff we're shelling out over $200 for. It's not fair. XD

me thinks the seller is plain bonkers to demand that kind of a price and the buyer, if there is any, is even CRAZIER!!!

Yeah, I saw this auction, but I never judge art. It's handmade, hand painted by a professional artist and only 10 exist.I've seen people pay $10,000 for an abstract figure sculpture. I think if you can afford it and it makes you happy cool by me.

I prefer this Milla custom instead. I would pay good money for this one.
