COOMODEL SE004 1/6th scale Empires Series - Richard the Lionheart 12-inch action figure

Richard I (8 September 1157 – 6 April 1199) was King of England from 6 July 1189 until his death. He also ruled as Duke of Normandy (as Richard IV), Duke of Aquitaine, Duke of Gascony, Lord of Cyprus, Count of Poitiers, Count of Anjou, Count of Maine, Count of Nantes, and Overlord of Brittany at various times during the same period. He was the third of five sons of King Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine. He was known as Richard Cœur de Lion or Richard the Lionheart because of his reputation as a great military leader and warrior.

By the age of 16, Richard had taken command of his own army, putting down rebellions in Poitou against his father. Richard was a central Christian commander during the Third Crusade, leading the campaign after the departure of Philip II of France and scoring considerable victories against his Muslim counterpart, Saladin, although he did not retake Jerusalem from Saladin. Following his accession he spent very little time, perhaps as little as six months, in England; most of his life as king was spent on Crusade, in captivity, or in actively defending his lands in France. Rather than regarding his kingdom as a responsibility requiring his presence as ruler, he has been perceived as preferring to use it merely as a source of revenue to support his armies.


This is the upcoming COOMODEL SE004 1/6th scale Empires Series - Richard the Lionheart Collectible Figure. It is not a historically accurate figure but more of a fantasy figure. The same applies to the earlier previewed COO MODEL 1/6th scale Empire Series - 12 Paladins of Charlemagne Collectible Figure posted on my toy blog HERE. COOMODEL 1/6th scale Richard the Lionheart 12-inch action figure specially features: head sculpt of Richard I of England, upgraded action body, Six (6) Pieces of Interchangeable Palms (2 fists plus 4 palms in silver armor).
