New 5" BST AXN Articulated Action Figures From Loyal Subjects - Big Trouble In Little Chnia, LOTR, Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Naruto And More

Recommended Posts

We got our first glimpse of these back in February during Toy Fair. They are a new line of 5" articulated action figures called BST AXN that are being released by Loyal Subjects. At Toy Fair we were allowed to take pictures of their Cowboy Bebop and Fullmetal Alchemist figures, but they also had on hand their Naruto figures that we were not allowed to take images of. Since then however it seems Loyal Subjects has been hard at work expanding the line to include a number of additional figures from various properties. Thanks to the overseas etailer Games and Comics we have a look at quit a few of them. It should be noted many of the figures shown are possibly still early production samples of some kind. Shown below in our GALLERY are the following figures:

-AC/DC Angus Young
-Big Trouble In Little China Lightning
-Cowboy Bebop Spike Spiegel
-Cowboy Bebop Vicious
-Fullmetal Alchemist Alphonse Elric
-Fullmetal Alchemist Edward Elric
-Guns N' Roses Slash
-KISS The Demon
-LOTR Gandalf
-Napoleon Dynamite
-Naruto Kakashi Hatake
-Naruto Naruto Uzumaki


It seems like a pretty random choice of characters being done. With ones like Gandalf from LOTR and Lightning from Big Trouble In Little China, it will be interesting to see if those are one and done figures or if they plan on flushing out those properties with more figures down the road. The figures do have accessories including weapons and multiple pairs of hands. It looks like the figures will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 each. It's unclear if these will only be made available online or if any major retailers will be picking them up. As more details become available we will be sure to update you.

Cool, a random selection of characters, my picks would be Gene Simmons and Gandalf, maybe Angus Young for my father. Although I would like to see the finished product first, I hope they don't end up being like Funko Legacy and I have no problem with them being 5 inches.

That is a VERY random selection of characters and celebrities.  Also the face on that Lightning figure looks more like Thunder.

As cool as these look, I'd need to see how they potentially look next to 6" figures to see if I have any use for them. As is, it's a painful pass since I'd enjoy having most of them.

I’d be really into the Cowboy Bebop figures if I was confident this line was going to complete the entire cast and not just do the same 2 characters as one offs.  
 

Big Trouble in Little China also looks interesting.

these look really cool, I'd be really interested in collecting a full line of Big Trouble figures and LOTR's if they look this good, but I also really just can't say I'm excited about the fact these are 5'' , If these were just an inch bigger I'd be jumping on them but I also wouldn't want to buy some of these and find out they never make the rest of the characters, guess we will have to wait and see how in reality these scale and if they can commit to giving us these property's in their entireity

They look cool but, why 5"? Also why lightning before Jack Burton.

I can't asnwer the first question but the answer to the second is almost certainly that they haven't gotten the likeness rights for Kurt Russell as Jack Burton yet. I think it's pretty obvious that they haven't obtained the rights to James Pax's likness, either, but people seem less likely to notice that Lightning doesn't look like him than they would if Jack didn't look like Russell.

Well the Funko Reaction figure didn't look like Kurt Russell either so I don't see anything stopping this company on making a Jack Burton figure...

At least they can make it like the comic version...

Funko Reaction figure is also quite a bit smaller and simpler than this one.  Also, comic book Jack still looks like a caricature of Kurt Russel, and so his people could potentially argue that a figure based off of it couldn't be sold without his permission.

Well the Guardians of the Galaxy figure from Hasbro looks like his old persona... I don't think that will be an issue for this toy company to get the likeness with permissions from Kurt...

They might.  But they clearly haven't yet.  Also Loyal Subjects isn't Hasbro.

Last month we showed you a bunch of the figures Loyal Subjects would be releasing for their new 5" BST AXN action figure line which includes the likes of Big Trouble In Little Chnia, LOTR, Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Naruto and more.

Well now we can tell you that this line will be making it's debut at Walmart stores here in the United States with a release date of September 15. Looks like things will be kicking off with their Fullmetal Alchemist Alphonse Elric and Edward Elric figures.

Cool, I'm really interested in in the breadth, style and pricing of these so far. I hope they don't plan to release just two at a time though. I feel like the line's license diversity is one of it's strongest attributes thus far.
