Donnie Yen goes on sale at the HK Comics Festival

This is great news for all the Donnie fans out there (if there are any besides myself)… The one and only Donnie Yen will be available for sale in figurine-form at the Hong Kong Comics Festival starting on July 30th. This is not your regular Ken-doll, because the 12-inch figurine is modeled after his character in the upcoming movie Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen.

The Donnie-doll is available in two versions -- one dressed in a white tunic suit (see picture) and the other in black leather (think Kato). It comes with a pair of black boots (which doesn’t look good with any white suit), as well as 4 sets of hands and nunchucks. After seeing the finished product, Donnie praised it for looking 90% like the real Donnie and ordered 10 sets for himself as souvenirs.

Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen has been selected as one of the two opening films at the 67th Venice International Film Festival in September. The movie will also be screened at the Toronto International Film Festival later this year. No words yet on whether Donnie or his doll will be making an appearance.

Legend Of The Fist: The Return Of Chen Zhen hits theaters on September 23rd in Hong Kong.
