Elle Driver is a member of an elite group of bounty hunters, the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, led by the master assassin Bill, who eventually becomes Driver's lover. While all of her fellow Vipers are violent and ruthless, Driver is by far the most evil of the lot. She is a a cold, treacherous psychopath devoid of any humanity. Driver had trained with Pai Mei, the violent and irritable Chinese Kung-Fu master who trained both the Bride and Bill, and who plucked out her right eye after she called him a "miserable old fool." Eventually Elle stages her revenge, but that might have been the most fatal mistake she had made, as that only caused Beatrix to punish her more. Here is alook at the Elle Driver Action Figure from Kill Bill: Volume 2 in clamshell packaging.
Pai Mei was a White Lotus Priest who was famed to be one of the greatest martial artists. Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus.
Now, imagine, if you will, having to be trained by such a person? Bill, Elle, and Beatrix all know what it was like, with Elle being his final student for obvious reasons. Anyhow, here is a look at the legendary Pai Mei as he will arrive as part of the Kill Bill: Action Figures Volume 2 in clamshell packaging.
