Enterbay 1:6 Donnie Yen as Ip Man PREVIEW

"Ip Man" was the 2008 semi-biographical martial arts film based on the life of Ip Man, a grandmaster of the martial art Wing Chun and the first person to teach the art openly. One of his students was none other than the widely influential and acclaimed martial artist and filmmaker Bruce Lee. The film was directed by Wilson Yip, and stars Donnie Yen as Ip Man, with martial arts choreography by Sammo Hung. "Ip Man" won the "Best Film" and "Best Action Choreography" at the 2009 Hong Kong Film Awards. "Ip Man 2" has since been released this year and is just as good, if not better than the first film.

Now ENTERBAY will be releasing their exclusive Real Masterpiece – Ip Man. According to their website, "This 1/6 Scale Donnie Yen as Ip Man Collectible Figure, is engineered in precision, masterfully sculpted and made to our high standard."

This product is supposedly using the brand new developed Action body RM-3 and it is ENTERBAY 3th generation RM-Body. This body has more movable joints than those ones in the past. It is a lot lighter than the other RM-bodies, so that this would improve the activity (I think they meant poseability) and stability.

This Ip Man figure will include: the iconic black Chinese suit, white Kung Fu shirt, a pair of black Kung Fu shoes equipped with magnetic chips so that Ip Man can be posed on the metal stand provided, RM-3 Body, 4 Interchangeable Wing Chun Hands with intricate hand detailing, Kung Fu accessories – a Wing Chun Wooden Dummy with tile print metal stand and a Wing Chun booklet that would have demonstration on the Wing Chun routines, Chicken feather duster. All the above in a Deluxe Box Set Packaging.

You can pre-order yours at TFH (link HERE) now

yup, with enterbay, you basically pay for the head sculpt because there isn't much else in terms of accessories

Like Ip Man, but will probably skip this. Hope Enterbay will make more Ip man models, so the head sculpt will improve, like bruce lee.
