Wai Lin, the Chinese secret agent with a flare for Kung Fu from 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies, will be the first new 12-inch figure released as part of Sideshow Collectibles continuing James Bond line for 2005. No photos have been released, but it’s expected that the Wai Lin figure — and possibly other Bond figures planned for 2005 — will be revealed at the San Diego Comic Con International next month (July 22-25).
Wai Lin joins Honor Blackman’s Pussy Galore (Goldfinger), Halle Berry’s Jinx (Die Another Day), and Famke Janssen’s Xenia Onatopp (GoldenEye) in Sideshow’s growing line of take-charge Bond Girls. The character of Wai Lin was portrayed by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh. The figure will be released in February and will retail for $39.99.
At last year’s San Diego Comic Con International, Sideshow revealed its Tee Hee and Roger Moore figures from Live and Let Die, as well as the very popular super-sized Jaws figure from Moonraker.
CBn will be attending the Comic Con and will bring you exclusive photos of the Wai Lin figure, as well as all of Sideshow’s 2005 James Bond lineup.
