Hiya Toys have been making a name for themselves in the 1:18 scale action figure market for the last few years with some very impressive offerings for Predator, Aliens, and Warhammer 40k.
In late 2021 they announced a new line of Judge Dredd figures in conjunction with 2000AD and within this, they confirmed they would be doing both 4-inch and 6-inch figures. It now looks like 2022 will see them expand their offerings into the 6-inch action figure arena on a larger scale with this confirmation via their social channels that they will soon be unveiling a 1:12 scale figure of classic 80's action hero, Rambo.
The line will be called the Exquisite Super Series and considering the franchises in the Hiya stable, this could get very interesting. This exciting news has suddenly brought Hiya right into our wheelhouse for all things 6-inch and we look forward to seeing how this develops.

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...
