It’s no secret that I am a huge Bioshock fan, My Xbox live gamertag is partly named “Raptures” because of it. I also have a huge tattoo on my lower leg in dedication to it, so I guess this next one should probably come as no surprise.
“…I chose the impossible. I chose… Rapture. A city where the artist would not fear the censor. Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality. Where the great would not be constrained by the small. And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well.” (Andrew Ryan)

(Big Daddy Bouncer Figure)
Big Daddies (originally named Protectors, and sometimes called Mister Bubbles by Little Sisters) are genetically enhanced human beings who have had their skin and organs grafted into an enormous diving suit,their primary goal is to protect Little Sisters while they escort them around Rapture.
Big Daddies have a highly luminous chemical substance filled into the helmet to display what state of emotion or mind that it is in. Big Daddy helmets have three light colors: green indicates the Big Daddy is hypnotized and friendly, yellow indicates awareness but indifference to his environment, and red indicates rage towards assailants.
A large, fully-functional conical drill is attached to the right arm just above the elbow, and is used for powerful melee attacks. The Bouncers get their name from an attack they use, in which they strike the ground with their drills, this causes a tremor that gives close-proximity enemies unstable footing.
What I love most about this figure is simply how amazingly painted it is, the bronze paint really makes it look as if big daddy is severely rusted in quite high detail. it’s quite heavy overall and there is certainly some sharpness to his drill. It also comes with a removable rear gas tank.
Quite a rare figure to find unless you’re willing to pay up, I got very lucky with the price.
Cost – £42.99
