Round 5 announced its collaboration on an exclusive new line, Bruce Lee’s Temple of Kung Fu, with elite vinyl toy designer Jeremy “MAD” Madl in February. Today Round 5 releases poster art featuring a selection of the 28 characters that will hit shelves this summer. Round 5 will deliver blind box assortments of the 3-inch figures in the Bruce Lee Temple of Kung Fu platform. Each box will contain standard figures as well as hyper-limited variants.
“When creating an entire universe of characters like we have for Temple of Kung Fu, I can’t think of a better collaborative partner than MAD,” says Round 5 president Damon Lau. “We have taken the myth and legend of kung fu seen through the lens of Bruce Lee and delivered archetypal characters that are beautifully designed and highly collectible. I’m happy to show a sneak peek of what’s to come this summer.”
The Temple of Kung Fu launch represents the first of several planned collaborations between Round 5 and established artists from the art toy space centering on the official Bruce Lee brand.
