Now I don't know about you guys but I've been wanting to have my very own Penelope Cruz figure (aside from the Scarlett Johansson figure of course) since I laid my eyes on her in "Girl on Top". This Pirate of the Caribbean Angelica figure will only be available to purchase at the Singapore Toys, Games and Comic Convention event halls. Also if you have a craving for Lt. Jim Gordon and Capt. America they can also be purchased exclusively there too. For now just go ahead and check the break for the latest Press Release from our friends.
