The Loyal Subjects have fully released their new line of 5″ scale action figures called BST AXN (Best Action). The figures are a little smaller than most figures on the market with a 1/15 scale marking. Each figure does come with the same price tag, though, as they come in at are priced at $15.99 each and will feature roughly 30 points of articulation. The Loyal Subject has a nice assortment of properties under their hands, and it shows. The of the first wave of figures we are getting are from the movies Big Trouble in Little China, Lord of the Rings, and Napoleon Dynamite. There is a nice variety of iconic anime characters getting TLS: BST AXN treatment too, with Cowboy Bebop, Naruto, and Fullmetal Alchemist. Lastly, there are also some real-world rockers from the bands AC/DC, KISS, and Guns and Roses in the wave too. Each one is packed with a small amount of detail, accessories, and nice window packaging that will please both in and out of box collectors.
The Loyal Subjects is trying to give collectors great collectibles at a great price. The thing that intrigues me the most is the wide variety of licenses. If they can capture licenses that many others don't, they might have some real gold by being the first to market it. TLS did give some mention of what they have coming in the future like, Sauron, Gizmo and Stripe from Gremlins, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Naruto Shippuden, Death Note, Starship Troopers, and even Ozzy Osbourne. These figures will be great to see in person, and they can be found today at Walmart stores and at GameStop, Hot Topic, and others in the coming weeks. Check out all of the figures, packaging, and descriptions below.
