As action duos go, they don’t get much more dynamic than Batman and Robin, Mario and Luigi, and… Jay and Silent Bob.

Diamond Select Toys is now celebrating the 20th anniversary of these cult icons with a line of fully articulated action figures.

The pair first made their cinematic debut 20 years ago, appearing in Clerks and have since then featured in a number of cult classics, including Mallrats, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

The new seven inch scale figures include multiple interchangeable parts, multiple points of articulation and connecting display bases depicting the interior and exterior of the pair’s favourite haunt, RST Video.

Retailing at $24.99 and scheduled for release this August, the figures have been cited as ‘the most realistic action figures ever’ to be based on the duo, although we are still awaiting comment from Silent Bob.
