Appleseed Figure Landmate

The new Hot Toys snapkit sets of the Appleseed crew are pretty impressive but I really just wanted to show you the Landmate addition. The Landmate was a type of bio-suit mecha that the main character Deunan Knute uses in the finale of the movie.

Apparently, in order to create the Landmate, you have to buy the full set of figures as certain Landmate's parts are added to the other figure's boxes.

Pretty cheeky if you ask me, considering that the Landmate is by far the best part of this whole series. Crafty marketing eh....
