In 2007, the sequel "Appleseed Ex Machina" was released and this one really blew me away with its animation. John Woo was the producer and thus, scenes of flying pigeons are inevitable as it is part of his signature but in this movie, the flying pigeons are robots that send out signals which activate a virus that causes people to go crazy and violent (like the rage virus in "28 days later"). Later, when Deunan, Briareos, Tereus, and a Poseidon task force confront HALCON which controls the virus, they are met by drones in a scene reminiscent of "The Matrix".
Hot Toys released this Movie Masterpiece figure in conjunction with the movie and it is truly a Masterpiece!! The usual slipcase cover with metallic card stock but printed with a beautiful image from the movie.
