Sima/ZWCO! is producing a 1:6 scale action figure of Chow Yun-Fat’s character from the Hong Kong classic ‘A Better Tomorrow’. This should be out in May with a retail of around $170.
This Klingon Disruptor from Diamond Toys is a nice companion to the various phasers and other lower-end Star Trek replicas the company has come out with the past few years. Personally, while I have a lot of Star Trek toys and replicas, Star Trek is something I’ve come to love to hate rather than just love over the years.
In the late 1970s, Mattel licensed toys from various giant robot anime series popular in Japan and released the toys here as Shogun Warriors. The best of the series were a line of 24″ tall plastic that were straight-up awesome, like this classic Dragun:
These toys were released before the U.S. crack down on spring-loaded weapons in toys, so that huge contraption on Dragun’s right hand is a shuriken disc shooter.
The toy line inspired a Shogun Warriors comic book from Marvel that ended once declining sales led to the cancellation of the toys.
Just $7.99 can nab you a bag of 35 Zombies vs. Zombie Hunters fighting plastic figures (and this is scheduled to be available just in time for Christmas 2012!!).
