Round 5 MMA, maker of fine action figures (and who need to send some to me) released a sneak preview today of a prototype sculpt of Bruce Lee.
Based on the opening scene of his most notable film, “Enter the Dragon”, this Bruce features the original open-thumb broken knuckle style kenpo gloves and his tights that he wore in the opening of the film when he battled a young Sammo Hung. It should also be remembered that Lee won that sparring contest by armbar, so grappling FTW. Granted, the face in this photo looks a bit like Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, but it is just a prototype so I am sure it will be fixed when it goes to mass production. The company previously released a sneak peek at their first figure, this one immortalizing his famous pose and outfit from Lee’s final film, “The Game of Death”.
This figure will be released in the fall of this year along with others, but if you can’t get enough Bruce Lee you can check out my sneak preview and review of the first episode of “Bruce Lee Lives”, a new series on Fuel TV that starts this wednesday.
