Later this year, the beloved Underworld franchise will continue with the highly-anticipated Underworld Blood Wars, which stars Kate Beckinsale, reprising her role as Selene, along with Theo James and Tobias Menzies reprising their roles as David and Marius. It isn't known when we'll get the first trailer, poster or photos from this highly-anticipated sequel. But today we have our first look at a new 1/6 figure featuring the iconic Selene from this vampire franchise. Take a look at the official description below from toy manufacturer Star Ace Toys.
"The Underworld movie franchise pits vampires versus Lycans (werewolves) in a death match for the fate of the world. This rich mythology has been explored in four films with another one on the way. The star of the Underworld saga is Selene, a vampire Death Dealer, who acts as an enforcer for the vampire elite. Star Ace Toys is proud to present their one sixth scale collectible figure of Selene decked out in all her Death Dealer glory with embroidered coat, multiple weapons and a light up crossbow. The authentic likeness of actress Kate Beckinsale is fully realized and meticulously sculpted and hand painted. This collectible action figure is a must for any fan of Underworld."
The 1/6th Scale Selene Collectible figure features a 1:6th scale body, approximately 29 cm tall with over 30 points of articulation. The figure has a fully realized authentic likeness of Selene in the Movie Underworld: Evolution, with accurate facial expression and detailed skin texture. Each head sculpt is specially hand-painted.
The figure comes with eight interchangeable hands including a pair of open hands, a pair of hands for holding gun, a pair of hands for holding Crossbow, a right hand for holding Shuriken and a right hand for holding Sword. The costume includes one Glossy Black shirt, one Black Corset, a pair of Black Trousers, a Black Coat and a pair of Boots. The accessories includes two Walther P99 guns, two holsters a Crossbow with Light Up function, seven Crossbow Bolts, a Sword, a Grenade, a Small Knife and two Shurikens. Also included is a Plastic stand with waist clip.
No pricing details were given, but this figure will debut at some time in the third quarter of this year, most likely right before the October 21 release of Underworld Blood Wars. We'll keep you posted on more figures from the Underworld franchise as we get closer to Underworld 5, and stay tuned for the first trailer.
