Diamond Select Toys have released details of a new licencing agreement to produce products based on the life of Bruce Lee.
This will include a number of statues, but it is the Select figures that have piqued our interest. The first items will be launched in 2019.
Bruce Lee’s Legacy Lives On With New Products from Diamond Select Toys For decades, Bruce Lee has fascinated the world with his groundbreaking martial arts style, philosophical outlook and his on-screen charisma. Now, Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC, is partnering with his family to produce a line of collectibles that will pay tribute to the man and his legacy.

Categories will include Select action figures, Gallery PVC dioramas, Vinimates vinyl figures, Minimates mini-figures, D-Formz vinyl figures, resin busts and statues. The first item to be offered will be a Gallery PVC diorama depicting him in action, executing one of his trademark forms. “Being given the opportunity to work with the Lee family is truly an honor,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “Bruce Lee is one of the biggest icons of the 20th – and 21st – century, so I look forward to being able to help bring the spirit and memory of Bruce into the homes of fans everywhere. Lots of designwork and discussion have gone into making our offerings unlike any Bruce Lee products that have been seen before.“ Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC, is a mid-sized company dedicated to creating pop-culture items for collectors of all ages.
