During Comic Con 2012 we broke the news that Round 2 and the guys at Captain Action Inc. would be doing a “holiday” variant of the good captain. Then in September we showed you the press release on the Arctic variant.
Now our friends at Captain Action Inc are letting AFi debut an updated photo and give you some more details on what is essentially the first variant of Captain Action that has ever been produced in over 40 years!!
This figure will be on sale on toy shelves right before Thanksgiving.
Since it’s Captain Action’s first holiday in stores in many years, they will have the following on store shelves: the variant version , the basic version and the costume sets, available in Toys R Us and Comic Shops.
This yuletide variant features Captain Action in his arctic uniform, recolored in an icy white and permafrost blue.
The figures comes with the special Arctic Gloves and Boots, as well as an Arctic White Captain’s hat, sword & gun holders. The Arctic Adventurer has a variant silver belt. Two regular hands are also included.
This is an extremely limited run, and they are now expecting it sell out quicker than originally intended. The retailer response has been very strong.
Be on the lookout as these will be in stores VERY SOON! If you spot one on stores shelves let us know in the forums!
