Availability: July 2022 – San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive
Bruce Lee is packaged in a VHS-style clamshell case, which pays tribute to the old VHS cassette packaging that movies used to be offered in back in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The covers features artwork and an image of Bruce Lee, along with logo’s, on the front and sides and additional artwork and images on the back. The figure is inside the clamshell packaging on the right, and the accessories are located on the left. Unfortunately, you have to cut around the plastic to remove the figures and accessories as these are not re-sealable, which would have been great considering how spectacularly done the packaging is.
Bruce Lee is a reissue, and the same shirtless figure you got several years back from DST. It continues to be a great sculpt, including the deco applied on the skin tone with painted washes, long black pants, a black belt, black shoes, and white socks. The head sculpt features a great likeness and also includes nicely done deco and facial details.
Included are a handful of accessories you have also received before, including a bo staff, 2 batons, a nunchuck, a swinging nunchuck, three sets of interchangeable hands, and a brand new base with his name printed on the top.
The primary reason to purchase this figure is to own the packaging, so if you already have the initial release, you’re going to want to pick this up to display him inside the package.
The articulation includes a ball jointed head, ball hinged shoulders, butterfly shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, and hinged ankles.
Bruce Lee is another great SDCC offering, and this packaging is extremely eye-appealing that fans will love. If you’re going to SDCC, make sure to grab him and other VHS-style figures, or order them online at the stores listed below (keep in mind that pre-orders online are not guaranteed to be fulfilled):
