Dante (Dante's Inferno)
If a literary classic can be turned into a video game, there's certainly no reason why it can't get the toy-line treatment too. Based on the demon-slaying, hell-bound hero from Electronic Art's Dante's Inferno, this figure includes his bone scythe (which he acquires by bitch-slapping the Reaper himself in the game), real fabric arm bands, and a crucifix sewn into his chest-dude means business! But even cooler than these rich details is his pained expression; the fire in his eyes and frown on his face effectively convey his thirst for vengeance and his heartbreak over his lost love Beatrice. If Salem and Rios are bullying Little Sister-they can be a-holes like that-Dante's the guy to call when Big Daddy's too busy introducing his drill to a Splicer's spine.
