Retro 3.75 Inch Captain Action Figures Coming from ZICA Toys

Over the last year or so retro action figure designs from the 70’s are starting to make a huge comeback. The designs first became popular in today’s age when Funko and Super7 teamed up to release the unreleased Kenner Alien action figures from the 1970’s. Now because of the recent popularity, other companies like ZICA Toys, want to give creating retro action figures a chance. They have just delivered their first Six Million Dollar Man action figures and now they are ready to create the world’s first retro 3.75 inch Captain Action action figures.

“ZICA Toys is very happy to be working with Captain Action Enterprises on bringing the exciting characters of the Captain Action universe into 3.75″ retro figure format!  This scale will allow us to do a lot of really cool stuff with the property in addition to just making the action figures.  My favorite thing about the smaller scale figures when I was a kid was the vehicles and play sets that went with them, and I can definitely see some exciting possibilities for these with Captain Action!”

Craig Owen, Owner of ZICA Toys

Captain Action is based on the early action figure that was created in 1966 by Stan Weston for Ideal Toys. He came equipped with a wardrobe of costumes to become just about any hero like Batman, The Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet and many more. Just one year later in 1967 the line proved to be so popular that it was expanded to include Captain Action’s sidekick, Action Boy. The following year, DC Comics licensed the character and ended up creating five issues of Captain Action.

“We’re also very excited to work with ZICA to develop vehicles and play sets. And we will also be exploring the development of vehicles such as the Silver Streak, Captain Action’s amphibious car, in other scales and formats.”

Joe Ahearn, Captain Action Enterprises

Current plans call for the first wave of figures includes characters such as Captain Action, Action Boy, Dr. Evil and the Silver Streak. Expect them to start hitting stores in late 2014.
