Diamond Select enter the dragon with a new line of Bruce Lee products
There are few names more synonymous with martial arts and, really, popular culture itself than Bruce Lee. The legendary star is still regarded as one of the greatest action stars of all time, with films like Enter the Dragon and the posthumous Game of Death influencing cinema to this day, and he has a close comics connection thanks to his role as Kato on The Green Hornet and Batman. This past weekend, Diamond Select announced that they will be producing an entire line of products based on Lee’s most famous film roles. No photos or release dates as of yet, but they’re pulling out all the stops with the promise of vinyl figures, dioramas, Minimates, and much more. Check out the details below.
Bruce Lee’s Legacy Lives On With New Products from Diamond Select Toys
For decades, Bruce Lee has fascinated the world with his groundbreaking martial arts style, philosophical outlook and his on-screen charisma. Now, Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC, is partnering with his family to produce a line of collectibles that will pay tribute to the man and his legacy.
Scheduled for release starting in 2019, DST has planned a line of products that depict the legend at various stages in his life, in some of his most iconic looks. Categories will include Select action figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, Vinimates vinyl figures, Minimates mini-figures, D-Formz vinyl figures, resin busts and statues. The first item to be offered will be a Gallery PVC diorama depicting him in action, executing one of his trademark forms.
“Being given the opportunity to work with the Lee family is truly an honor,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “Bruce Lee is one of the biggest icons of the 20th – and 21st – century, so I look forward to being able to help bring the spirit and memory of Bruce into the homes of fans everywhere. Lots of designwork and discussion have gone into making our offerings unlike any Bruce Lee products that have been seen before.“
