Straight from yesterday’s Captain Action Panel at SDCC, we unveiled the prototype for the first release in our new Action Elite Series from GoHero/Executive Replicas/Phicen…. a 12 inch scale deluxe Lady Action figure! This high end figure will be on a seamless, pose-able Phicen body and also feature a removable face plate and hair to allow Lady Action to easily transform into other disguises. The figure not only comes with Lady Action’s trademark uniform and equipment, but an additional stealth uniform and alternate gloved hands and a posing stand as well.
