Triad Toys has announced the debut of their much anticipated Legends line with Bodhi Dharma. The Legends series is Triad’s unique take on mythical and legendary heroes.

Bodhi Dharma was a legendary Indian Bhuddist monk who travelled to China, whose meditative exercises laid the foundation to what became the Shao Lin style of Kung Fu. His clothes are meticulously designed with multiple layers and choice fabrics, he comes with four (4) pairs of hands for all the kung-fu poses you can possibly imagine, his headsculpt is wildly imaginative and hand-painted to perfection, his weapon utilizes the ATAC system and converts into five different weapons! To guarantee the highest level of detail and collectability, Dharma is a limited production of only 400 pieces worldwide!

No, not Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) from the popular American police procedural comedy-drama MONK

Everything looks ok here except the way they sculpted the head. The face looks a bit like those characters in the Hong Kong comic.
