Dragon Wong, together with Tiger Wong (Dragon's younger brother) and their friend; Turbo Shek, were released as 1/6th articulated figures in conjunction with the 36th anniversary of the HK comicbook; Dragon Tiger Gate, better known as Oriental Heroes or Lóng Hǔ Mén (龙虎门 / 龍虎門)


:: the story of my 1/6 DTG ::

i was first "attracted" to this series becoz i had chanced upon an earlier incarnation of an older/adult Tiger Wong (pictured here) and had lurved the comic/anime-ish headsculpt and dug the long hair (rare in 1/6th-sculpts) *LOL* - again happened to see Dragon and Turbo displayed by another local collector/friend, which promptly blew me away with their hair-details! ahahahaha ... but alas tracking down the other two figures had proven futile...

i then had an opportunity to procure another "new" series of figures (featured currently), but with the headsculpts of them "at a younger stage in their life" and more "comic-book"-inspired, and hence without even looking at the product (no images were found online by myself), i plonked down a full advance for the trio of figures ... this was indeed foolish and totally goes against my purchasing-principle of see-before-you-buy ahahaha :p

all three figures worked out to be near SGD$120/USD$78, which was not half-bad for a full figure, really ... but considering t'was only the headsculpt i was gunning for, SGD$30 for a piece'a head was mildly ridiculous hahahaha

but i like 'em! especially Dragon's, with the teasing-fringe hahahahaha (as plastiky and bootlegged they might look LOL) ~ my thoughts and opinions on the figures are in my reviews:
- Dragon Wong / multiplied
- Turbo Shek / multiplied
- Tiger Wong / multiplied

and one of the main reasons for featuring these trio on my blog is, at least there'll be a record of these figures online, that hopefully will/would be easily/easier to access (at least in the English-language searches) *heh*
