A couple of years ago there was news that the rights to Jin Roh had been purchased with the intent to produce a live action remake. The 1999 classic Anime movie Jin Roh is going to be remade but not by japanese movie makers, rather it will be South Korean and directed by the great Kim Jee Woon (The Good. The Bad. The Weird, The Last Stand) and will go into production soon. The new Jin Roh will be set in South Korea but there is no word yet on whether it will stay close to the same post WWII 1950's era setting the original had or if it will be set in more modern times.

here in 2011) but that was cancelled and now the 1:6 behemoth that is Hot Toys are are making the figure jointly as part of their artist figure series in conjunction with Takeyuki Takeya, J.C. Hong and Mamoru Oshii !!!! I loved HT's previous Takeya collaboration (Samurai Predator) so I'm pumped!! Expect this to be a more refined figure than what Platz was going to release, with better detail, paint, articulation and materials used and of course being HT, expect a very high price point (ouch timez for mah wallet!). The below images (posted on the Facebook onesixthrepublic page by William Lau) are from Hobby Japan magazine and look to me to be the Platz hobby prototypes, but the HT figure is likely going to based off this work and will definitely use the same sculpting so expect the look to be about the same.
OSW! Also, if you like black armoured sci-fi military troops do consider buying the Dam Toys S.O.C. Glint team leader Ryder Watson, it's a pain to put it all together if you have bear fingers like me but Dam does it look good :)
Kerberos Lookalike figure coming soon! Inflames X Red Mark Killing Fields Infantry aka Killzone Helghast
