Father Sword Exclusive: 500 Units

$250.00 USD

“Battle pleases you, Crom.
So grant me one request:
Grant me revenge!
And if you do not listen,
Then to Hell with you!”
Estimated to ship Q4 2020

The road is long and hard that leads Conan the Cimmerian from the slaughter of his people to the vengeance he seeks. His life has been a grueling, fiery crucible in which a fearsome warrior was forged, leading him, ultimately, to a singular moment. And in that moment, high atop the great pyramid of the Temple of Set, Conan at last comes face-to-face with his lifelong nemesis, Thulsa Doom, and exacts his revenge.

Chronicle Collectibles is understandably thrilled to introduce our Conan the Barbarian OneSixth Figure. Featuring a remarkable likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his role as the titular character from the 1982 John Milius classic, the figure depicts Conan as we remember him from the film’s climactic scene, during his final confrontation with Thulsa Doom.

The fully sculpted portrait caps an all-original, muscular OneSixth body created specifically for the character, featuring multiple points of articulation. The figure comes clad in the pants Conan wore during the battle at the Mounds, with his feet protected by faux-fur-wrapped boots. Conan is armed with his Atlantean Sword, which the figure can either wield or wear at his side with the included faux-leather belt and scabbard. Additional costume options include the Wheel of Pain necklace, a Cult of Set medallion, and an Eye of the Serpent amulet necklace.

As an added bonus, collectors who choose to purchase the Conan the Barbarian OneSixth Figure directly from Chronicle Collectibles will receive the shattered Father Sword, broken during his battle with Doom’s thug, Lexor. This exclusive is limited to 500 units, so reserve yours today.

Way way overpriced - especially since this isn't even a seamless figure and the head doesn't have rooted hair. You can get a TBL body and a quite decent Arnie/Conan headsculpt for a total of $100-$120. No way are the above accessories worth $130-$150.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought. I like the pants and the Father sword, but overall, most of this doesn't work together. The body and the paint on the entire figure makes it look like a 1/12 figure. Very disappointed that we FINALLY get a licensed Arnie Conan, and this is the best they can do. I'll stick with my custom. I was sort of hoping this would be good enough to be able to make a possible Battle of the Mounds, or War-Paint version...

I wonder whether they are situationally unaware or just really hoping a licensed figure of something done at least three times already would sell better. I like the clothing and accessories, but although the specially developed body looks nice (and kudos for painting the nipples), this is not something they should be bragging about -- instead they could have cut the cost and sold this as a set to be complemented by a TBLeague body. I am divided on the head sculpt, though definitely not a fan of the sculpted hair. Come on, Chronicle Collectibles, if I can do it, so can you! And I don't think I need comment on the price, especially considering this is not a super extensive set.

Wow, yeah... this really does not hold up well compared to either of the two recent Conan sets. Stryker is right that the paint job seems somehow not right for this scale. It’s too ‘soft’. And I get that they are trying to do a less common outfit, but the trousers make the figure look overly short and dumpy. If the sculpt and paint job on the face were amazing, then it might have a bit more draw.

I do like the sword and the boots on this one, though. But overall, a bit of an underwhelming (and overpriced) release. :/

The pants make him look like Pirate Conan. He needs a white puffy shirt.

LOL,  that last pic ... XD 

But yeah, I mean, the trousers themselves seem fine, but I think the issue I'm having is more to do with the way they look on that 1/6 body. Either the boots are too big, or the legs are too short... or something. Also, there needs to be more of a 'gap' between the puffy part of the trousers and the knee. As it is, it just looks off. 

Someone on FB pointed out that the translucent sort of plastic used on this one is contributing to it having too much of a 'toy' appearance. I have to agree...

looks a nice figure, but no chance at that price. This company seem to be having a laugh at pricing their figures!!

Good catch, Stryker!

It also occurs to me now that there is a gulf between the possibly excessive weathering (pitting) on the head sculpt and the much smoother treatment of the neck and body.

Sky, where is the translucent plastic you mentioned?

The translucent material is what the body is made of. The guy who painted it mentioned it on the Freaks board (it’s one of the reasons why the head and body look so different). I would think if he had put a layer of primer on the body, the translucence wouldn’t have been as obvious.

GF -- I think they meant the fact that the body seems to be made of a slightly different plastic than the head sculpt.


ETA: Whoops, missed Strykers previous comment. Yeah, that's exactly it.

Just went and looked it up again, and I had missed the fact that SilentSurfer is the one who painted it. I've liked a lot of his paintjobs in the past, so it kinda threw me. It probably is partly to do with the texture of the plastic....or perhaps I am just so used to either normal 'hard plastic' jointed bodies, or tbleague bodies. 

Anyway, nothing against Chronicle Collectibles... they have some good artists amongst them, but I just feel that so far they seem to be asking WAY too much for their 1/6 products. :/

Is it just me and my old eyes or the overal quality of this figure is so weak that it looks like a 1/12 mezco like?

Personally I find the head really ugly, the skin texture is overscaled and dramatically too marked compared to the rest of the body, which elbows remind me of early action men... The definition and color of hands is another problem, and honestly the outfit and weapons are missing some attention, even more at that price point...

It's definitely not just you. Razz That's pretty much what I meant when I said the face seemed 'soft' ... like how a lot of 1/12 figures look ok from a bit of a distance, but up close the printed paint job goes all fuzzy and out of focus.

Yep to all of this. And my old eyes see the same as yours apparently.
