The Fab Four are back, in another set of deluxe vinyl figures from Titan Merchandise.
As part of their Titan Vinyls line, we take a look at these larger black and white versions of the Beatles from the animated movie “Yellow Submarine.” These figures are upscaled from their “All Together Now” collection, the second wave of blind box Beatles figures from Titan Merch.

If you ever get the chance, watch “Yellow Submarine”, a peculiar animated film about The Beatles traveling to a far-off land to battle hairy blue meanies in order to save Pepperland with the power of love. No, really!
In honor of this classic, Titan Merchandise made this series of Titan Vinyls, which we have today. A second wave is on the way out, so just in time for those, here is our look at the first batch of mini-figures, which includes both The Beatles and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, along with other characters from the movie. This is one of the flagship series for Titans, and after you watch the video, it will be clear why.
“The Fifth Beatle” is garnering acclaim from every single media outlet and person that reads it, and that is something Vivek J. Tiwary is very proud of. Aside from being a Broadway producer, Tiwary worked with Andrew C. Robinson and Kyle Baker to make a truly engaging graphic novel about the manager of ‘The Beatles’ that is in turn a deeply personal story for Tiwary as you will hear in the interview.
We discuss the story behind this book, creating the art, how this book is so close to Vivek’s heart, and we break the news about the next phase of where this graphic novel will take Mr. Tiwary.
Vivek also gives us a first-hand preview of what is new in the recently released paperback edition of the graphic novel, which you can order now.
Here is the official synopsis of the book:
The Fifth Beatle is the untold true story of Brian Epstein, the visionary manager who discovered and guided the Beatles—from their gigs in a tiny cellar in Liverpool to unprecedented international stardom. Yet more than merely the story of “The Man Who Made The Beatles,” The Fifth Beatle is an uplifting, tragic, and ultimately inspirational human story about the struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Brian Epstein was homosexual when it was a felony to be so in the United Kingdom, Jewish at a time of anti-Semitism, and from Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town. He helped spread the Beatles’ message of love to the entire world, yet died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, consumed by staggering ambition and the endless struggles that came with it.
Both heartbreaking and uplifting, The Fifth Beatle not only reveals an important, unsung chapter in the history of the Beatles—but it will inspire anyone who’s ever dared to believe in a dream.
Factory Entertainment was at NY Toy Fair 2013 and was a hidden gem at the show with lots of sculptures, plushies and figures of various hot licenses.
Debuting at the show was a new line of Ghostbusters items including statues of Peter Venkman and Ray Stantz, as well as Slimer and two versions of the Staypuft Marshmallow Man. Also being unveiled for the first time was their line from the animated series “Archer”, which includes the titular character, and their items from “The Princess Bride”, “Garfield”, “Shaun of the Dead”, “Jurassic Park” and “Back to the Future”.
The Beatles got the Factory treatment with multiple figures based on their animated movie “Yellow Submarine”. This includes articulated figures, plushies, and statues of the bandmates as well as The Blue Meanie and the submarine itself. Check out the gallery below for tons of pics from the Factory Ent. booth!
