A trio of Expendables will soon get immortalized with 7-inch action figures courtesy of Diamond Select Toys. Here are new pics of Gunner, Hale Caesar and two versions of Barney in package. Each figure will feature multiple points of articulation and military gear. Look for this team to get a piece of the action in December or you can pre-order the set here.
Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum are expanding their Expendables lineup of action figures. The first wave of Minimates based on the first film have just recently released to Toys R Us and specialty shops. Now we’re getting word that two new Minimate sets based on the second film will fight their way onto toy shelves this October. The Toys R Us exclusive set features a shirtless Barney Ross, Trench Mauser, Mr. Church and Booker (played by Chuck Norris). The specialty retail set stars Ying Yang, Gunner Jensen, Toll Road, and the new villain Jean Vilain (played by Jean-Claude Van Damme). In addition to the new Minimate sets, a wave of 7-inch scale figures will feature two different versions of Barney (one with and one without his beret), Gunner, and Hale Caesar. All of the figures will be wearing their mission gear and come with character-appropriate weapons and details. Look for them in November or you can pre-order them here.
Finally, we get that Eric Roberts 2-inch action figure we’ve all been asking for… or maybe just I’ve been asking for. Based on the first Expendables movie, Toys R Us will have the exclusive on the four pack featuring Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Trent Mauser (Arnold Schwarzenegger), James Munroe (Eric Roberts) & Paine (Steve Austin), while Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) & Tool (Mickey Rourke) will be a specialty retail exclusive. The sets will also come with a dozen guns and various melee weapons. Diamond Select plans to release two more sets in the future based on the upcoming sequel. Look for Sly and the gang to start blowing stuff up good in September.
Sly Stallone gets the 1/6 scale treatment, a couple of classic swashbucklers return and lots of pics of new WWE wrestling figs.
