Legendary actress Tura Satana finally gets her own action figure!

LOS ANGELES, CA – “One of Tura’s wishes was for someone to create an action figure of her in full Varlamode,” says Siouxzan Perry, CEO of Tura Satana Inc. in announcing White Elephant Toyz and PlaidStallions.com will produce the first officially licensed Tura Satana action figure. In full Varla mode!

“Satana, star of cult films Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and Astro Zombies is famous for being one of the first to use her real-life martial arts skills on-screen, firmly cementing her status as one of cinema’s all-time great action star pioneers.

Tura is also the subject of the forthcoming documentary TURA!, which chronicles her wild on and offscreen life.”

The first release will be based on Satana’s starring role as Varla in the iconic film, “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!” The figure will be fully articulated 8” in a retro cloth outfit complete with a vintage style (and environmentally friendly) box. Variants of this figure and other scales are also planned for 2023.

The official Tura Satana action figure will be available in 2022 at Plaidstallions.com and Whiteelephanttoyz.com websites

This past weekend saw the launch of the 8″ Odeon Toys Captain Canuck action figure in comic shops across Canada and thanks to our spies we captured a lot of it. Above is current Canuck artist Kalman and Silver Snail owner George setting at the downtown Toronto location for a signing event.

At Big B Comics in Hamilton, Captain  Canuck creator Richard Comely signed figures for anxious fans. Any one who’s ever met Richard can tell you he’s an extremely genuine person.

This is Strange Adventures in Halifax, although you can buy the Captain at any of their 3 locations in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Big B in Niagara Falls had a beautiful display of figures right smack in the center of the store. Visiting there is a must if you’re visiting at the Falls, it’s not far from Clifton Hill.

You can always order the Captain  Canuck figure from the PlaidStallions Online store, especially if you’re not in Canada.

If you are in Canada and live in one of these cities, it’s always best to support your local comic shop, call them today to reserve your Canuck!
