Six- Inch SHI Action Figure will be released for Pre-Sale September 22nd
Crusade Fine Arts, Ltd. announces the release of a 6” SHI action figure in a licensing agreement with Executive Replicas. Figures will be available for pre-sale on September 22nd on the Executive Replicas website.
This is not the first time Crusade and Executive have paired up. Executive Replicas has produced four hugely successful 12” SHI Action Figures previously. “We have always been amazed at the detail, beauty, accessories, and packaging of all Executive Figures, and it’s a pleasure to be working with them again on this latest release” explained Billy Tucci, creator of SHI.
“The success of our previous SHI products in the twelve-inch category made the need to expand our partnership with Crusade into the 6” category obvious,” stated Winston Dunlop of Executive Replicas.
This new figure has been in development for over two years. “We needed to make sure it was just right, and with the acclaim of the new SHI series, we found it crucial to update her costume and ensure the figure reflected the current storyline. Executive worked with us on countless re-sculpts, updates, and changes. We are grateful for their cooperation.” Stated Tucci. And while they have reached a workable model for presale, there will still be a few further alterations and refinements in production. “There has been an overwhelming number of requests for a six-inch SHI figure, and we want to guarantee the complete satisfaction of our patient and loyal fans, who have stuck with us over the last twenty-eight years. We owe them everything.”
These stunning figures will include 2 interchangeable heads, 3 pairs of hands, 2 katanas, 2 sais, 1 naginata and removable hakama.
Crusade Comics will also be offering their own Signature Series exclusive of the 6” SHI Figure, offering a limited number for pre-sale this October, so stay tuned for more information on the pre-sale date.
