SKYBOUND ENTERTAINMENT AND DIAMOND SELECT TOYS TEAM UP FOR INVINCIBLE ACTION FIGURES
Today Skybound Entertainment and Diamond Select Toys announced new INVINCIBLE action figures hitting stores in Summer 2021. From the Skybound/Image superhero comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, the new line will feature Invincible and his father Omni-Man, each with interchangeable parts and accessories.
The figures will stand at seven inches, and each will come with a second angry head, multiple interchangeable hands, and baseball gloves. Invincible will come with a baseball and a Reanimen head, while Omni-Man will come with a chunk of concrete and a Flaxan arm. Each figure will feature approximately 18 points of articulation.
INVINCIBLE follows Mark Grayson, who as a teenager inherits his father’s superhuman strength. The comic book series ran for 144 issues and an animated series will debut on Amazon Prime in 2021.
“It’s a thrill to be working on Invincible action figures for the new animated series,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “The comic was groundbreaking, and the animated version should be unlike anything that has been seen before. It’s the perfect time to launch a toy line, and I think collectors will be very happy with the product we’ve developed.”
Available for pre-order through comic shops and specialty stores on December 23rd, the accessory-packed figures will arrive in summer of 2021, with streamlined versions coming to Walgreens stores.
