It’s a big weekend for toy/collectible news – New York Toy Fair starts tomorrow. But there’s no reason to wait for the convention, now is there? That’s the philosophy of McFarlane Toys it seems, as they just released the following:
“Legendary comic book and toy creator Todd McFarlane announced today that his company, McFarlane Toys has partnered with one of the gaming industry’s hottest properties, Gears of War, to produce a line of highly collectible action figures. Known for its gritty, gory, hyper realistic gameplay, Microsoft’s Gears of War has been an Xbox staple for nearly a decade. The franchise revolutionized cover-based combat, and drew millions of Xbox Live users in with its addictive multiplayer. One of the most anticipated video games of the year, Gears of War 4 is slated to release Holiday 2016, exclusively on Xbox One.
McFarlane Toys is well known for producing excellent figures in the gaming genre, and currently produce and hold the action figure license for the Halo, and Assassin’s Creed franchises. The Gears of War figures will be based on the upcoming Gears of War 4 video game and will be a part of McFarlane’s new 2016 Collector Box Program. The figures will stand a full seven inches tall, have an average of fifteen points of articulation for incredible poses and play action and feature game accurate accessories and weapons. The Gears of War 4 action figures will boast the same meticulous level of detail that McFarlane has become known for over the last two decades.
“The game does such a great job of giving these characters big dynamic personalities.” said Todd McFarlane, Creative Director and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “We’re going to make sure all that personality gets represented in the action figures.”
The Gears of War 4 action figures will be available at major retail locations beginning Fall of 2016. Fans of both McFarlane Toys and Gears of War can check www.mcfarlane.com and the McFarlane Toys social media channels for updates and news.”
