Dynamite has a special Vampirella action figure dropping in September. It will put you back $149.99, but this is a little higher-end than the old Super Powers action figure line.
This is a partnership with Executive Replicas and Phicen, Ltd., boasting of a “Phicen seamless body,” a stand and accessories. And really, the bat is a nice touch (glance left).
Official PR follows:
Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce a new licensing partnership with Executive Replicas and Phicen Ltd., adding iconic horror hostess and Dynamite mainstay Vampirella to the manufacturer’s celebrated line of intricately-detailed, sci-fi and horror-related action figures. The first release, the Vampirella Asian Version 1:6 Scale Action Figure, is slated for release in September 2017.
This officially licensed Vampirella Asian Version 1:6 Scale Action Figure, standing twelve inches tall and fit for display with a stable base, is every bit as enchanting as her dedicated fans would come to expect. This vampiric vixen comes to life in three dimensions with a Phicen seamless body featuring stainless steel armature, and includes her trademark one-piece bikini costume, three pairs of interchangeable hands, knee-high boots, a removable cape, and more accessories. The retail price for this exquisite collectible is $149.99.
“For those that love action figure collectibles, there’s never been a greater time than right now – when the craftsmanship and materials of figure development can so realistically capture the likeness of iconic characters,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “We’re proud to work with the team at Executive Replicas, one of the premier designers and manufacturers of high-quality pop culture merchandise, to bring Vampirellato collectors in the very desirable 1:6 scale format.”
“This production capability was absolutely necessary when producing a character like Vampirella,” Martin C. Dunlop, CEO of Executive Replicas, “Outside of a statue, there wasn’t any way to produce a figure this beautiful.”
Winston Dunlop II, President Executive Replicas added, “After years of trying to obtain a license and produce a Vampirella figure…the right way, finally with Phicen’s patented production capability, it was a must to add the beautiful Vampirella to the list of characters using our seamless bodies.”
Vampirella is a raven-haired heroine who remains, even after 48 years of publication, one of the comic industry’s most well-known characters. Since the character’s very healthy resurgence in 2010, Dynamite has published four volumes of a monthly series, several miniseries and one-shot specials, and crossovers with multimedia brands and comic book peers (Army of Darkness, KISS, Aliens, and more). The Vampirella franchise is a haven for writers and artists with a penchant for the macabre. An icon of horror, Vampirella has an appeal that transcends the printed page, becoming a favorite facet of merchandising including apparel, barware, statues, jewelry, tarot cards, and more.
