October Theme: Filipino American Representation in Playscale, Pt.2

Here are some dolls or action figures I have "borrowed" to expand a Filipino American collection. Which ones do you think "work"  for this role?


Asian/Asian American Dolls and action figures
Asian/Asian American Dolls and action figures

Let's meet them, going from left to right:

Hasbro Special Response Team G. I. Joe (Asian)

Hasbro Special Response Team G. I. Joe - yes, he is an Asian American G.I. Joe.



Mattel Captain Li Shang from Mulan

Mattel Captain Li Shang - per the Disney Mulan story, he is Chinese. Maybe he has
Chinese Filipino background?





Jakks Pacific G.I.R.L. Force Kulture Shock Jaz

Jakks Pacific G.I.R.L. Force Kulture Shock Jaz - I need to find her box, but I don't think she was assigned to a specific Asian group.




Dragon New Generation Mong Kok C.I.D. "Wai" Sir

Dragon New Generation Mong Kok C.I.D. "Wai" Sir- okay, he is assigned to a specific part of Hong Kong, Mong Kok, so he's Chinese or a Hong Konger.
