I try to keep up on most Resident Evil happenings, but this one flew under my radar. It looks as though the original announcement was in March, but now they are showing off some stunning prototypes. A Japanese company, Worldbox, will be making a fully licensed 1/6 scale Nemesis figure from Resident Evil 3! Here are the details (translated best I could) and some pretty pictures:

From what I can see, the tailoring looks amazing on this guy. I think his head could maybe be slightly bigger along with the shoulders, and an alternate hand with a tentacle would be sweet as hell. Regardless it looks pretty fantastic, and how often do we get decent Resident Evil figures?
Hot Toys has covered Resident Evil 4, 5, and possibly 6 if they release their latest reveals. So this would be the first figure from Resident Evil 3! If it does well maybe we could get a mini-skirt Jill to face off against it.
There are no preorders up yet, but I’ll be sure to follow up once I find something.
