SDCC 2022 Diamond Select Cobra Kai, Bruce Lee, and John Wick Action Figure Exclusives

There is a level of normality returning to the convention scene for 2022 after two years of disruption and San Diego Comic-Con in July 2022 is now starting to creep onto the horizon, particularly as Diamond Select Toys have today unveiled their 2022 convention exclusives.


The action figure offerings are all very much themed around retro packaging and styling and repack existing Select 7-inch figures with new deco in place, and into retro-inspired packaging. Each of the single figures will cost $25 in the US and will be sold at SDCC, and via a pre-order program direct from Diamond (including International shipping options) and potentially also via Previews & Diamond stockists.


Up first are some new additions from Cobra Kai, starting with VHS boxed versions of Danny Larusso and Johnny Lawrence. Each set features a repack of the existing figure - Danny in his Miyagi-Do Karate Suit, and Johnny in the Cobra Kai colours. These are then packed into retro clamshell VHS-style boxes along with a collectors card and a display base. Each set is limited to 4000 units.


There is a third Cobra Kai set that is listed as the Cobra Kai Retro 2-Pack. This set features both Larusso and Lawrence, each in their classic Karate suits. While there is no image as yet for the box, it is confirmed in the blurb to be a full-colour opening window box. This set retails at $80.



Everyone loves the Netflix series Cobra Kai, but we prefer it on VHS! This fully articulated 7-inch figure of Daniel LaRusso depicts him as he appears in the fan-favorite Karate Kid sequel series, and includes a display base. With over 16 points of articulation, this figure will take home the title in any martial arts toy tournament! Limited to 4000 pieces

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...
