Palisades To Work On 12" Reservoir Dog Figures
Reservoir Dogs is a movie about a group of men recruited to rob a jewelry store, but something went wrong. The police showed up way too fast and some of the men died. Now, some of the thieves think there was a rat. Is there a rat in the group, and if so who? Or was the robbery just a bad idea? Reservoir Dogs was the first movie Quentin Tarantino directed. Starring Harvey Keitel, Michael Madson, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, and Quentin Tarantino.
Working with Artisan Consumer Products, Palisades Marketing, LLC, a leading designer and manufacturer of licensed collectible properties announces that it will make 12-Inch Action Figures based on thecult classic Reservoir Dogs, distributed by Artisan Home Entertainment.
