Bandai Tamashii Nations releasing S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee Yellow Track Suit version action figure

The Game of Death is an incomplete 1972 Hong Kong martial arts film directed, written, produced by and starring Bruce Lee, in his final film attempt. Lee died during the making of the film. Over 100 minutes of footage was shot prior to his death, some of which was later misplaced in the Golden Harvest archives. After Lee's death, Enter the Dragon director Robert Clouse was enlisted to finish the film using two stand-ins which was released in 1978, five years after his death, by Golden Harvest.

The remaining footage has been released with Lee's original Cantonese and English dialogue, with John Little dubbing Lee's Hai Tien character as part of the documentary entitled Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey. Most of the footage that was shot is from what was to be the centerpiece of the film.

Earlier in the year, Bandai Tamashii Nations released their first SH Figuarts Bruce Lee figure. They have now revealed that a second figure will be on the way, and it will be the “Bruce Lee Yellow Track Suit Version,” based on his appearance from the movie Game of Death. The S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee Yellow Track Suit figure will be about 5.5 inches (14 cm) tall. The figure will come with three interchangeable portraits, each showing off a different expression, and painted using a new digital coloring technique. The figure will also come with 4 pairs of interchangeable hands, a pao stick, and nunchaku.
