Announced via Comicbook.com is this new Diamond Select Toys 7-inch figure of Kato from The Green Hornet. It seems the Select format is being rebranded as 'Deluxe' figures and Kato is the first of these from the 1960's iconic TV series.
From the three shared images, we can see Kato includes his staff, what appears to be a throwing dart, and it appears there are two head options - one with a cap and one without - the heads look slightly different in terms of it being a removable cap.
Kato will come boxed and the pre-orders are live as of Friday the 22nd of April with an Autumn 2022 release date.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
