[Toy Fair] Outlander collectibles debut at Dark Horse
Dark Horse Comics’ toys and collectibles imprint, Dark Horse Deluxe, is proud to offer new items based on characters and stories from the hit Starz show Outlander! The Outlander collectibles from Dark Horse are licensed through Sony Pictures Television in a deal brokered by Knockout Licensing.
Outlander is a popular television drama that tells the story of World War II army nurse Claire Randall. While on her honeymoon, Claire is transported to 1743, where her freedom and life are threatened. To survive, she marries Jamie Fraser, a dashing Scots warrior with a complicated past and a disarming sense of humor. A passionate relationship ensues, and Claire is caught between two vastly different men in two inharmonious lives.
Dark Horse senior product development manager Rebecca Dudeiros said, “With our new collectible line we hope to convey the lush and mysterious life that Claire is thrown into. We want to bring the consumer into the world of Outlander with items that make them feel like they are part of the story.”
Dark Horse Deluxe is launching its Outlander line with an assortment of products. The centerpieces of this first wave are the stainless steel stein and the beautifully sculpted Crown and Thistle pin.
A coaster set, magnetic bookmarks, magnet four-pack, Crown and Thistle journal, and embroidered patch round out the initial range of products. Dark Horse will continue to offer more Outlander products, including a program of collectible items. Stay tuned . . .

The second season of Outlander debuts April 9, 2016. Outlander is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining and Supply Company, and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
