If you missed out on the excellent first release in the Golden Axe action figure line, you now have a chance to correct that. Storm Collectibles is re-releasing the Ax Battle 1/12 Scale Figure in a new set. Toyark sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has an exclusive set featuring Ax Battle, the Red Dragon, and two Skeleton Soldiers. The set does leave out some parts and pieces that were included with the first release. Ax Battle will include a sword, while the Skeleton Soldiers include swords, shields, and interchangeable hands. The additional portrait and swap out hands for ax Battler look to be excluded from this set.
Golden Axe is one of the most classic and iconic side-scrolling arcade beat ’em up games released in 1989 by Sega. The game places the player in control of one of three warriors each bent on revenge against the vile dictator, Death Adder. One of them is a male barbarian, Ax Battler, wielding a two handed broadsword looking for revenge for the murder of his mother. The force of Ax’s magic is able to cast Earth spells. The players are able to ride on the Red Dragon and fire at the enemies like the Skeleton Soldier army.
The Golden Axe Set is priced at $229.99. It’s due for release in March. You can pre-order the set from Big Bad Toy Store. Read on for a few images.
