New Resident Evil Releases

Moby Dick has unveiled their latest Resident Evil action figures, and is changing the method by which they are releasing them. Previously, they were all going to be released in 2-packs, but now all the new releases past the Carlos and Nemesis 2-pack will be individually blister carded action figures.

The human characters stand about 8 � inches tall and retail for $25 each in Japan. The monsters are much bigger and retail for $29 each in Japan. Toycom will be distributing these toys in the U.S., so you'll be able to get your grubby little mitts on your favorite survival horror action figures.

Here's a break down on what coming soon:
