My adrenaline has been pumping all week with Toy Fair 2019 news, and today is the final day before the big show. The news keeps on coming, and while we want to save some things for this weekend, this was an item we could not wait on.
Icon Heroes, who is known more for their bobbleheads, statues, prop replicas/ office supplies, are getting into the action figure market. Their first venture will be the 1984 classic movie “The Karate Kid”.
These 1/12 scale figures come with swappable hands and hands, and a ton of articulation.
No price or release date has been announced for these yet, nor if they will be sold individually or as a two-pack.
The last company to make Karate Kid figures was Funko with their ReAction figures. This year, the 35th anniversary of this movie, we are getting figures not just from Icon Heroes, but also from NECA.
So far today, we also learned about NECA’s new TMNT cartoon two-packs, and the amazing Ghostbusters and Transformers crossover figure named Ectotron.
Below is the full list of all of Icon Heroes announcements ahead of Toy Fair:
