Preview Storm Toys 1/6 scale King of Boxing Final Round 12-inch Mike Tyson Figure

Storm Toys presents their 1/6th scale King of Boxing Final Round 12-inch Mike Tyson Figure. This will be their second Mike Tyson figure after their first release not too long ago (see the preview pictures posted HERE). Word is, their stuff is PRICEY and unless you are a true blue Mike Tyson fanatic really eager to own this figure, you are better off with the officially licensed products offered by reputable companies like Hot Toys and Sideshow where you know what you pay for is value-for-money and it's easier to unload if you ever want to because there's a market out there. Always good to know what's coming out in the market :)

Nicknamed "Iron Mike" and "The Baddest Man on the Planet", Tyson won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, with twelve of them occurring in the first round. He unified the belts in the splintered heavyweight division in the late 1980s to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. Tyson became the lineal champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks in the first 91 seconds of the fight.


Storm Toys 1/6 scale King of Boxing Final Round 12-inch Mike Tyson Figure product details: 2 pcs of head with tattoo and 2 face emotion, 1 Body with tattoo, 5 styles of hands, 1 pair of boxing gloves, 1 pair of boxer pants, 1 pair of boxer shoes, 1 pc of black shirt, 1 set of grey suit, 1 pair of leather shoes.

I have yet to see any websites offer pre-orders on this one. I mean I think there's a small market for a Iron Mike figure...of course if the price was right. I did hear the sky high prices this guy was going for. Who has this for sale? I'm curious to go check it out.

What I read on one of the forums: "USD240.00 + shipping. pre-order 120.00 Now balance due upon release. Paid in full at pre-order 220.00... Looks like I'm at the mercey of the evil-bayers Hope some one parts it out. 240.00 plus 30.00 shipping... No can do. I like it but not as much as some other things on the horizon..."

Apparently they have a facebook page too

"Alex,

Interesting Mike Tyson figure. Of all the boxing champs I think it is interesting they picked Tyson who has a pretty rough background.

One of my neighbors in NYC was the daughter of Tyson's business manager. I saw Tyson once in the elevator and he was certainly impressive. Recently he has been doing the talk show circuit and talking about his rehab and turnaround. As I recall he is raising pigeons now.

Just received this figure, one of the BEST 1:6th renditions of any life-like sculpt, and I have many HTs, EBs etc. I agree that you have to be a boxing fan or a Tyson fan, but if your are more than a casual fan of 1:6th this is an awesome figure. Expect to pay a hefty fee in the 2ndary market. I got #21/200
