The Green Hornet and Kato Kick Off a New Product Line from Diamond Select Toys

The late 1960s were a great time for superheroes on television, and the Green Hornet was one of the greatest! Following a crimefighter and his sidekick as they took on organized crime, the series ran from 1966 to 1967 and is now a cult classic. That’s why Diamond Select Toys is partnering with The Green Hornet Inc. and the Bruce Lee Family on a new line of collectibles starring the Green Hornet and Kato!

The new array of products spans multiple categories, including action figures, Gallery PVC Dioramas, 1/7 scale mini-busts and Legends in 3D half-scale busts. Products will be offered for pre-order this fall and will ship to retailers starting in 2022.

“I was a huge fan of The Green Hornet as a kid,” said Diamond Select Toys president Chuck Terceira. “Plus, I became a fan of Bruce Lee’s other projects as I got older. So to be able to capture these two heroes in 3-D is a dream come true. With so little Green Hornet and Kato product out there, I think fan interest in what we make will be through the roof.”

Based on an earlier radio program, The Green Hornet followed newspaper magnate Britt Reid and his sidekick Kato as they infiltrated the underworld disguised as villains. Secretly taking out the criminals they encountered and turning them over to the police, the pair were believed by the world at large to be criminals. In their only season on the air, they had a crossover with Batman as well as 26 episodes of their own series.
