Captain Action Enterprises today announced 2012 San Diego Comic-Con variant plans: a reproduction of the rare Italian version of Captain Action, Capitano in Azione.
Originally released in the 1960s’ by the Italian toy manufacturer Baravelli, these Italian toys have become a sought-after collectible. Baravelli also produced licensed toys including G.I. Joe, Batman, and even Ed Sullivan’s Topo Gigio.
The new Capitano in Azione comes in a retro style box (pictured below), with an authentic costume, historical brochure and a new item, an Italian Beretta pistol. The Capitano in Azione Limited Edition Variant Figure list price is $120.00.
The new Capitano in Azione Limited Edition Reproduction will be available exclusively at Comic-Con International from Action Figure Xpress. Collectors are invited to visit their booth, #3345 on the SDCC show floor, or pre-order online at ShopAFX.com. To ensure collectability, an extremely limited quantity of this SDCC variant was produced.
Action Figure Xpress will also have a limited quantity of standard Captain Action Deluxe action figures autographed by comics legend and package artist Joe Jusko.
More surprises are to be announced at the Captain Action panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Panelists include SDCC guest of honor Joe Jusko and Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide publisher J.C. Vaughn. The panel is scheduled for Thursday, July 12th at 2:30 -3:30 in room 24ABC.
