Very exciting news for retro enthusiasts today, as ZICA Toys announced via their Facebook page that they have landed the license for Captain Action, and will be producing 3 3/4″ action figures in the same style as vintage G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero!
In the Facebook comments thread, they are quick to point out these figures will NOT have “o-rings” but will maintain the same scale and style as some of our classic favorites.
I am… enthused about this. Quite enthused.
Captain Action has always had an appeal for me, but the scale wasn’t something I latched onto, even if the fabric costumes of real licensed characters was a nice touch. The first assortment will contain Captain Action, Action Boy, Dr. Evil and the Silver Streak!
Check out the latest information here, and keep watching ZICA Toys for the next exciting developments. They are currently producing vintage styled Six Million Dollar Man figures (among others). The full post can be seen below:
I’ve been given the green light to officially spill the beans on the Captain Action project. The format is 3.75″ scale done in the classic 80’s Hasbro G.I. Joe style. Starting out the line will include Captain Action, Action Boy, Dr. Evil and the Silver Streak!
Work is just getting started on this project but hopefully I’ll be able to start sharing prototype shots soon. So again, stay tuned!
