DID Corporation previewed its upcoming 1:6 scale Apollo 11 Astronaut figure at the 2018 Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong convention this past weekend.

Few details are available, but the company noted on Facebook that they plan figures for all three Apollo 11 crew members. The figures posted are prototypes, so the obvious error of having Collins in a lunar EVA-configured suit may still be corrected.

They remind me of the old Dragon figures that were released years ago. But a little puffier and the cutaway PLSS is new.

Collins didn't walk on the Moon...

The cutaway PLSS is a great idea.

Anyone seen a cutaway PLSS before? Would make a nice scale model!

Wow, This will make a fine addition to my 1/6 collection. Buzz Aldrin from Dragon, Gene Cernan and modified Cernan to represent Jack Schmitt from Hobby Master. About time they did this. I know 2011, they released the Neil Armstrong, very rare and costly if you can find one.

The detail on those boots are astounding. I'm sure they will amend the detail issues, as like they did with the HM figure.

I wrapped the figures with a few layers of bubble wrap to make them look puffier. Just around the arms, legs and torso.

As per post on their Facebook page, DID is trying for a release date during the first quarter 2019.

Now if they do a set of each crew for their anniversary I'd be in heaven!

Wonder how much they would be for the whole set and if they will sell them as a set or individually?

Has anyone heard of or seen any updates on these 1/6 scale figures?

When asked about the status of these figures on Facebook earlier this week, DID Corp. replied, "Will try our best to release by July."

(Note: The figures, as planned, will not include the lunar surface or flag assembly, though DID says they will consider offering a diorama.)
