These figurines of S.T.A.R.S. leader Albert Wesker and a Hunter α were part of Palisades Entertainment, LLC's third and final series of Resident Evil figurines. A packaging variant of this figure exists that has the head on the body swapped for the other.
As with the other Palisades Resident Evil products, the back of the box has a "secure file" detailing the character. These blurbs are not part of Capcom's canon and may be speculative or take information from other sources such as the WildStorm comics or the S.D. Perry novels.
Subject: Albert Wesker
Weapons: Various caliber handguns
Special attacks: Enhanced physical strength and recuperative powers
Weight: 186 lbs.
Former commander of the raccoon city S.T.A.R.S. unit and sinister Umbrella "operative", Wesker must now be considered a dangerous enemy to Umbrella. Although the organization with which he is actually affiliated with is unknown, Wesker has a hidden agenda that can only mean exposure of Umbrella's master plan. Wesker's Achilles heel is his emotion. His hatred of Chris Redfield is so strong that command suggests that an attempt be made to use Redfield to draw Wesker out into the open.
Beware of bio-engineered Hunters that follow wherever Wesker leads. One swipe of their razor sharp claws can leave you with a splitting headache. If a Hunter spots you...run.
This set features an Albert Wesker Figure and a Hunter Figure.
Albert Wesker is capable of rotating his upper arms, his shoulders, his thighs, his wrists, and his ankles. He is capable of bending his elbows, knees, and feet. His head is capable of being rotated 360 degrees and can pivot up and down. The Head can be removed and replaced with the alternative head that comes in the packaging. It does not come with a stand, however Wesker does have holes in his feet where pegs for a stand would go.
The Hunter features shoulders that can be rotated and bent outwards, Elbows and knees with joints for bending, thighs that can be rotated, left fingers that can be bent and used as another support for the figure's weight in addition to its legs, and a mouth that can be opened and closed.
At least two Prototypes each of these particular figures are known to exist. One is a Test Shot prototype, and the other is a larger Paint Master prototype.
The prototype images were taken by the original owners of the prototypes. All credit goes to the ToyDepartment and Corndogcollectibles.
