What’s that, you ask? Well, it’s the new action figure of Bloodshot, the cybernetically-enhanced main character for the upcoming movie of the same name. The live-action adaptation of the Valiant Comics series will star Diesel as the titular character, who actually sounds like a bona fide badass.

Bloodshot’s skillset includes shape-shifting, enhanced physical attributes, a regenerative healing factor, and the ability to emit psychic pulses and commune with technology, all thanks to nanites that have been injected into his body. Sounds like a certain other badass, gun-toting cyborg from the future.

Regardless, while we’ve no qualms that Diesel will probably kill it as Bloodshot, we can’t help but question just how… bland his action figure looks. Never mind the 22 points of articulation, swappable hands and equipment for oodles of poseability and photo opportunities, his face just makes it a little hard to take him seriously.
