Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new partnership with Executive Replicas and Phicen Ltd., adding horror icon Vampirella to the manufacturer’s line of 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. The figure stands twelve inches tall and fit for display with a stable base, 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 collectible is $149.99.
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.
Since 2006, Executive Replicas has released a number of action figures, busts, statues, props, and other sci-fi and horror-related memorabilia, specializing in sci-fi, horror, action heroes, and villains. They’ve created collectibles for such brands as Red Sonja, Painkiller Jane, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Frank Frazetta’s Death Dealer, Vincent Price, Bettie Page, Night of the Living Dead, Sheena, and more.
