Fifty years ago, the legendary Bruce Lee passed into the mysterious beyond. To celebrate his enduring status as one of the greatest martial artists in pop culture, Super7 has announced the first wave of Bruce Lee ReAction Figures.
Available now: Wave 1 of the Bruce Lee series includes some of his most iconic characters. The Protector (Fists of Fury), The Challenger (Game of Death), and The Warrior (Enter the Dragon). Each Lee is priced at $20 and stands 3.75″ tall. The card back sports a retro-styled poster showing off the available characters and letting us know they have five points of articulation.
The Warrior features battle damage and black nunchucks.
The Protector figure is the only one in Wave 1 which does not come with an accessory.
The Challenger comes packed with yellow nunchucks to match his iconic yellow and black jumpsuit.
Bruce Lee passed away on July 20th, 1973. He left behind iconic martial arts films that would forever change cinema. These movies and Lee’s personality helped break down barriers during a turbulent time in America’s past. Super7 had previously released a special edition Bruce Lee ReAction Figure last year. The company is also working on a second wave of Ultimates figures.
I hope Chuck Norris signed on so we can get a figure of his character from The Way of the Dragon. The Bruce Lee line would be an excellent opportunity for Super7 to make Kenner-styled playsets. Dojos, temples, the possibilities are endless. Include those disc platforms that can be moved with little rods!
The army-building collectors would buy generic goons if they were made for the Bruce Lee toy line. You’d need about 25 of them to recreate the dojo fight from Fist of Fury.
