Stan Weston created the original Captain Action figure in 1966 for Ideal Toys. It came equipped with a wardrobe of costumes, allowing Captain Action to become many different heroes such as Batman, The Lone Ranger, and the Green Hornet. The line proved popular that it was expanded to include a sidekick, Action Boy, and villain, Dr. Evil. The first wave of new toys will include Captain Action, Action Boy, Dr. Evil, and the Silver Streak vehicle.
Bif Bang Pow! has partnered with ZICA Toys to create high-quality retro-style toys and action figures. The line will be based on the iconic characters from The Twilight Zone. These 3 3/4 inch action figures are available for preorder and are scheduled to ship this fall.
Characters in the line will include Bob Wilson and the Gremlin from the episode “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”; Kanamit from “To Serve Man”; the Invader from “The Invaders”; Henry Bemis from “Time Enough at Last”; and Talky Tina from “Living Doll.” The figures will be produced in black-and-white and limited edition color series.
