This was my first opportunity to meet the guys behind Attakus, a toy company
based out of France, with offices in Canada and the USA. For those who don't
know Attakus makes high-end collectible sculptures of both licensed and original
properties. They have a nice mix of familiar brands (Star Wars, Marvel) with
lesser known lines such as those based on French comic books.
Lets cut right to the chase though - the big draw here was the Millennium
Falcon diorama. What this is, if you can fathom it, is a Diorama of the Escape
from the Death Star, in scale to the 3 3/4" action figures. This thing
is ernormous. Words do not do it Justice, so we shot video of Diego from Attakus
explaining the crazy thing to us.
This playset display is 70 inches long, 27
inches wide and 17 inches tall. It weighs in at 300 pounds!
In addition to the Falcon, they also make metal figurines that can be placed
in and around the scene. These figures are limited edition and hand painted.
Most importantly, they are all metal! The likenesses are fantastic.
Attakus had so much product on display, it is difficult to tell about it
all. Here are some of the standouts:
16" tall Cold Cast Probe Droid
Horus from Immortel
Navis from the french comic Sillage (Known as WAKE in the US)
Pelisse from "La Quete de l'Oiseau du Temps" (Known as Roxanna and the Quest
for the Time Bird in the US)
beautiful HULK Statue
