Earlier in October, Round 5 MMA sent us a sneak peek at their upcoming Shane Carwin action figure. Not long after that, they revealed another new figure. Sadly, I was inattentive and did not see it on their blog, but better late than never!
Joining the next wave of Round 5’s UFC Collector series will be American Top Team’s Thiago Silva, who was last seen in the octagon 11 months ago, and will be stepping back into the UFC cage on New Year’s against Brandon Vera, marking a full year since he was last in action. The figure captures his most famous facial expression, because when I think victory I think of puckered lips and mimicking cutting someone’s throat. Seriously, I do.
Silva joins Carwin to continue their UFC Collector series, and coming very soon will be the release of their new “Live” series of figures, 10-inch realistic versions of Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell. All of these figures are expected to hit shelves by the christmas season. Stay tuned for more details on this line and others, and look forward to a review of series 3 of the Jakks Pacific UFC action figures as well!
What do you think, does this figure look enough like Thiago Silva for you?
