In news we would normally have covered coming out of Toy Fair (which was canceled this year), Boss Fight Studio just announced a line of La Borinqueña action figures. This is just part of the first launch of action figures inspired by the team of superheroes created by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, the Nitainos.
Boss Fight Studio is known for their highly articulated action figures, as well as for bringing diversity into the action figure space. “From the moment we read the La Borinqueña comic books, we were taken by the female power, the diversity, and the wonderful storytelling — it seemed like such a natural fit for us. Being able to translate these super powerful characters into articulated figures is a dream” said Erik Arana, Partner and Art Director at Boss Fight Studio, in a press release.
“La Borinqueña and my other characters are celebrated by fans internationally for our stories, activism, and philanthropy that, I wanted to find a partner that would help bring them to life in incredibly designed action figures,” said Miranda-Rodriguez. “Boss Fight Studio was the ideal partner with their innovative approach to articulated figures. The designs look like they jumped off the page of our comics and came to life. Collectors and children will rejoice in creating their own adventures with this new line whether they’re in Puerto Rico or Brooklyn!”
Kicking off with 1:12 scale figures, the characters initially announced include La Borinqueña, Lúz la Luminosa, Oro el Coqui Dorado, and the super-villain La Gargola! “We have so many plans for this license — the characters are naturally toyetic and we can’t wait to show them off!” said Arana.
