Hardened (N2 Toys)



Hardened
N2 Toys
2001

Remember when toy fans were all upset because nobody would give them a Steven Seagal action figure and doll? Exactly.

So it was really odd that N2 Toys would produce the very short lived Hardened line with none other than Seagal as one of the two front running characters. Though the series was entitled Hardened, you won't find this anywhere on the front of the packaging. Instead, you'll find this at the top of the flip side of each piece.

 
 
In all honestly, the sculpt was pretty spot on for the actor, and had some fun accessories packed in with the twelve inch doll. Sadly the figure (below) was nothing more than molded plastic with no joints or articulation, leaving even less to be desired in this fairly undesirable series.
 


 
 
Though more popular, the Rambo doll and figure didn't exactly sell in droves either. Mainly because when it came down to it very few people knew the series even existed.
 


 
 
Much like the Seagal figure, there's no articulation to be found in the Rambo figure (below).
 



What can we say? Not every toy line can be a winner. As such, the line came and went quickly, and was never followed up on with any other characters.

However, if you're a Steven Seagal or Sylvester Stallone fan, these items may be right up your alley. Though not many of them sell on secondary markets, the smaller figures garner between $15.00 and $40.00, while the dolls range between $40.00 and $60.00. Believe it or not, the Steven Seagal figure is often  times more expensive than the Rambo one.
