Jackie Chan Adventures (Playmates Toys)



Jackie Chan Adventures
Playmates Toys
2001

Do you want to talk about a series of action figures that are INCREDIBLY difficult to come by?  Then let's talk about the four figures based on the animated series Jackie Chan Adventures from Playmates toys.  It's as if nobody bought these, and as a result all the additional product was sent back to the factory and melted down.  Loose figures are just as difficult to obtain as carded ones, yet oddly when found they don't command a high price.  Carded figures sell for as little as fifteen dollars, and loose sell for even less.

So what's the deal?  Why is this series so hard to come by?  We wish me knew.  Suffice to say that if you're a collector who loves a challenge, then give finding a complete carded set of these a try.

The figures of course are based on the animated series of the same name which went on for a whopping five seasons featuring ninety-five episodes.  It's odd that the animated series was so popular yet yielded so little merchandise.

Three twelve inch dolls were also produced by Playmates Toys, however two were just larger versions of the four inch Adventure Jackie Chan and Section 13 Jackie Chan.  The other figure was a Training Jackie Chan.
