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.

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.
