Dragon: The Viral Factor (逆戰) Nicholas Tse as Wan Yang (萬陽) Figure

The Viral Factor is an upcoming Hong Kong action film directed by Dante Lam and starring Jay Chou and Nicholas Tse, and is slated for a Lunar New Year release in 2012. International criminal cop Wan Fei (Jay Chou) must find and battle against his long-lost older brother Wan Yang (Nicholas Tse), who has become a criminal.

Dragon Models Limited will be releasing a 1/6 scale The Viral Factor (逆戰) Nicholas Tse as Wan Yang (萬陽) 12-inch action figure. It has been a long time since Dragon released movie-related 1/6 scale figures and this looks to be quite promising :) Let's hope the final product looks as good as these prototype pictures or even better.

Dragon seems to be attempting to make a comeback with this movie-related release. Dragon Models Limited used to release 12-inch figures in Hong Kong in tie-ups with the movies that were being released. They were doing this way before Hot Toys even arrived on the scene although Hot Toys have now surpassed them by leaps and bounds with their Movie Masterpiece Series (MMS) of figures.

Bro, DML did release some Chinese movie characters such as Andy Lau as Detective Dee, Jacky Chan as a monk in one of his recent movie "The New Shaolin Temple". But DML only sells one set of figures..We can't buy one figure only..

Hi Desmond, I guess I wasn't keen on those figures so it didn't register ;p but these two figs are NICE :>
