Megalopolis has announced that they have partnered with Rare and Interplay to make action figures based on Rare and Interplay characters. This includes the likes of Banjo-Kazooie, BattleToads, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, Earthworm Jim and Clayfighter.
“We are ecstatic to be adding these incredible properties to our growing catalog. Fans of Battletoads have been asking ‘where are the toys’ for decades, and we are answering that call with an expansive selection of characters and styles that will satiate the appetite of even the most diehard fans. Our partnership with Interplay is giving us the chance to re-imagine Earthworm Jim as a modernized, highly articulated collector line. This amazing property has been ripe for an updated line for years. We will now have the chance to make the full catalog of characters from across the entire Clay Fighter franchise. ”
-Ben Westover, Creative Director/Co-Founder of Megalopolis
“We have sought out cult classic titles for passionate, underserved fan bases to give them the products they’ve wanted for years. When they see the level of detail in the sculpture, paint applications, articulation, and packaging of these figures, as well as the depth of character selection, we know they will be just as thrilled as we are, because we are as big of fans of these properties as anybody! ” – Matt Westover, President/Co-Founder of Megalopolis
“I’m delighted to be tasked with finding these great retro properties and watching them come to life once again as action figures. There will undoubtedly be many delighted fans!” adds Marsha Armitage-Bristow, president of Brand Brilliant Consulting, who brokered the deals.
As someone who loves Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, Earthworm Jim, and action figures, I can say I'm hyped. How about you? :)
