If you haven’t seen Amazon’s fantastic action superhero series “The Boys,” you need to fix that soon! Based on the comic by Darick Robertson and Garth Ennis, the adventures of the titular group of superhero-bashing badasses have become a breakout success.
Led by the cockney hard-nut Billy Butcher (played by Karl Urban) The Boys are a small group of mismatched heroes who keep an eye on a world full of Super-powered individuals (or ‘Supes’) and keep them in line using trickery, blackmail, down-right dirty dealing, and occasional bouts of extreme violence.
Since the success of the cult hit comic, and in turn the wildly popular show, fans have clamored for merchandise of our not-so-typical protagonists. Who wouldn’t want a grinning, blood-splattered, crowbar wielding Billy Butcher standing on their shelf next to cheery old Batman?
One skilled fan, sculptor @HRZONE2, has taken matters into his own hands, crafting a set of custom 1/6th scale figures in an incredible likeness of all five of the titular team as played by the shows main cast.
Featuring picture perfect likenesses of Urban as Butcher, Laz Alonzo as Mothers Milk, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell and Tomer Capon as Frenchie- these fantastic examples of craftsmanship show a clear love for the show and a passionate dedication to art.
In the past, HR has crafted figures of such popular characters as “Supernatural” heroes the Winchester brothers, and “Resident Evil” big bad Nemesis. The skill shown in creating these lifelike simulacrums leaves us wanting to ask: who will he make next?
Seasons 1 and 2 of “The Boys” are currently available to stream, only on Amazon Prime Video. And, a third season is already in the works.
