Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds to be immortalised by Hot Toys!

Inglorious Basterds is the latest film offering by the great Quentin Tarantino. Currently released worldwide albeit different dates in August, the film is highly anticipated as it stars among other, Brad Pitt. Surprisingly, Hot Toys has provided us with the teaser poster for Aldo Raine, the lead character portrayed by Pitt in the film. Which can only mean one thing....a 12" Aldo Raine is coming our way soon! I just hope the headsculpt doesn't come with the facial expression above...hahah!

A brief info on the film: Set in an alternate history of the Second World War in which the entire top leadership of Nazi Germany, namely Hitler, Goering, Goebbels and Bormann attend a film premiere in Paris celebrating the exploits of a German sniper who had managed to kill 300 American soldiers in Italy. Most of the film's timeframe is set in early June 1944, after the D-Day landings but before the liberation of Paris

The film tracks the separate attempts to kill Hitler by two disparate forces, one being the "Basterds", a motley crew of Jewish American soldiers lead by Aldo Raine (Pitt's character) out for revenge against the Nazis. The Basterds have a modus operandi whereby each man must cut off the scalp of a dead Nazi soldier, with orders to get 100 scalps each. The Basterds allow one German soldier to survive each incident so as to spread the news of the terror of their attacks.

Check out wikipedia's page for more info on the film. Alternatively you could check out the official website for more related stuffs.
