Figures Toy Company says, “Shazam!”


Retro figures are all the rage these days.  I have mixed feelings about the retro market.  Part of me likes it because it reminds me of the simple figures as a kid.  But thats the other point, these retro figures are geared for adults leaving the kids out of the picture entirely almost.  So when we think retro, there are two basic paths to go down.  The 5 points of aticulation 3 3/4 inch figures (think ReAction) or the more intricate figures with clothe clothes that were anywhere from 8 to 12 inches.  Figures Toy Company announced plans to marvel us with the latter.

This year they plan to launch the World’s Greatest Heroes figure line starting with four DC characters that can be summed up in one word, SHAZAM!.  Shazam! Series 1 brings us Shazam! himself, along with Mary Marvel and Shazam! Jr.  Not to be left out of the bunch is his main villain, the mad scientist Dr. Sivana.

Each figure will have detailed cloth outfits, and will be packaged in the trademark Figures Toy Company reseal able plastic clamshell packaging.
SHAZAM! Series 1 will arrive later this year.  Check for more information on pre-ordering.
