For fans of the adorable game Cut The Rope, Round 5 has teamed up with Zeptolab to make some cute miniature trading figures and plushies! I didn't know these existed until the Round 5 team contacted me about it, and I'm pleased to see that more and more mobile games are getting lots of cool merchandise.

The toys I'm checking out today are a set of miniature figures and one plushie which were sent over by Round 5. Check out my overview below!

by Brian Szabelski

If you remember our previous post on the Bruce Lee's Temple of Kung Fu figure series, you probably remember seeing the release date had been pushed back to the fall. Well, now we're not only giving you a release date of this Saturday, Sept. 22, but a release party as well, apparently! 

Where at? Toy Art Gallery (7571 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles) is the place to be for the party, starting at 6 p.m. Pacific on Saturday. MAD will be in attendance to meet fans and sign the newly-released figures, with a cocktail reception to follow the signing. Also worth noting: the first 50 fans who line up early will receive a signed, limited edition Temple of Kung Fu poster. 

If you're in the area and are interested, check it all out! Planning on attending, Los Angeles Tomopeeps?

Bruce Lee's Temple of Kung Fu series checklist revealed photo
Bruce Lee's Temple of Kung Fu series checklist revealed
by Brian Szabelski

Some of you might remember that in the spring, we brought news about Round 5 and MAD's new blind-boxed figure line, Bruce Lee's Temple of Kung Fu. Well, in a slight update, we've had the checklist passed along to us, and as you can see, there's a lot of figures. Twenty-seven, to be exact, spanning across several of Bruce's well-known films. There's even a Kato figure as one of the 27 possibilities! Now that's awesome.

The release has been nudged back a bit to this fall, but fans of the martial arts legend should hopefully be happy with the diverse number of figures in the series. I know I am.
