SDCC’10: Playmates Toys to unveil Jackson toys


Playmates Toys announced they will show off the Michael Jackson Collectibles line at the San Diego Comic-Con.  The deal signed with Bravado, allows the company to bring Jackson’s likeness to the company toy line.

“We are delighted to expand our successful line of Michael Jackson collectible memorabilia by working with the innovative team at Playmates Toys,” stated Tom Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of Bravado. “This new line truly celebrates Michael’s unmistakable style and irreplaceable talent. Bringing in Playmates as a licensee only further cements Michael’s retail visibility and helps commemorate and preserve the legacy that is Michael Jackson.”

Michael’s incomparable style comes to life as Playmates rolls out the unique new 10” scale collectible which captures his likeness and the incredible fashions which have become legendary. The first 10” style will be Billie Jean which captures the bold and flashy outfit worn in the short film.

The second 10” collectible is Thriller featuring the iconic red with black trim outfit from the most famous short film of all time. These two styles will launch in Fall 2010 followed by additional styles shortly after.

You can check out both figures at the Diamond Previews booth (#2401) during the show, and you can check with your local comic book store to order the figures.
