TORCHWOOD ACTION FIGURES
Getretro in conjunction with their retail division scificollector are delighted to announce their recent appointment as the BBC Worldwide licensees for a series of Torchwood five inch articulated action figures.
These will be launched late Spring/early Summer 2008, and will feature an initial wave of four pose-able figures from the hit series that starts its second series on BBC Two in the New Year. A further wave with more characters will follow later in the year.
Proprietor Steven Scott who made his commitment on the strength of the first series and the widespread collector interest said that he was thrilled to be involved with such an exciting project:
We backed Doctor Who from day one, and were the very first company to have licensed Doctor Who merchandise in the marketplace with product launches on the day the show went to air. We have the same confidence in the future of Torchwood. Its gritty style presents an exciting challenge which we relish the prospect of interpreting.
We felt that this was a fantastic opportunity which we began pursuing long before the announcement that the show was to be broadcast in a specially edited pre-watershed version. Were confident that our designers will produce a vibrant range that will captivate both marketplaces. The collectable figures will be supplied on a fully detachable plinth to accommodate both traditional collector interest, and the imagination of those fans who wish to bring their models to life in pose-able action fashion
We intend to unveil the first sculpts at the January Toyfair, and the Birmingham Spring Fair, and look forward to bringing product to market as early as possible in 2008.
Torchwood Action Figures are made under Licence by SciFiCollector.
