Unlike Woodsy I have little or no interest in Martial Arts films, although well after the fad had completely faded I did do some training in Lau Gar Kung Fu, and sometime later in the Korean Martial Art of Taekwondo. Oddly enough, it was my young son, Danny who wanted to attend classes with me when I was doing Taekwondo, as, although he’d been born well over ten years after the short lived craze had ended, for some reason he was very fond of Martial Arts and all the paraphernalia that went with it.
During the nineties I used to regularly attend the Memorabilia event at the NEC in Birmingham, and would always try to bring something back for him, usually associated with his interest in Martial Arts.
This is one example, a 1:6 scale fully poseable action doll of Bruce Lee, made by Creative Entertainment which was released in 1999
The doll is dressed in a Gung Fu outfit, and includes nunchuku, a Tonfa and a staff. There’s also a decorative display stand.
The figure looks best when its tunic is removed and is able to adopt those classic Bruce Lee poses.
Here's Bruce doing his famous side kick!
And his roundhouse!
Here he is posing with his Tonfa and Nunchuku. The accessories are really nicely made and detailed.
