‘Ring of Honor’ Announces Action Figure Deal With Figures Toy Company
Independent wrestling promotion ‘Ring of Honor’ has just announced a deal to make action figures of members of their roster with the help of Figures Toy Company.
As a big fan of ROH, it is awesome to see the company finally get some toys. Luckily for them, Figures Toy Company is no stranger to the market, and previously produced “The Legends of Professional Wrestling” line, which made a bevy of classic wrestlers. Jumping into modern wrestling, we can only guess what the toys will look like at this point, but I am hoping they have high-articulation, like any self-respecting wrestling figure should have.
Here is the official press release from ROH:
Ring of Honor Wrestling® (ROH) and Figures Toy Company today announced a licensing agreement to develop, market and manufacture a line of collectible figures and accessories based on the wrestlers and world of Ring of Honor Wrestling.
For the first time ever, Ring of Honor fans will be able to collect their favorite ROH wrestlers while younger fans can relive classic ROH matches and moments with some of ROH’s most popular stars now available in toy form. This will include a “throwback” line of figures as well as replica title belts.
“There’s been an overwhelming demand for a line of Ring of Honor figures and collectibles,” states Ring of Honor Chief Operating Officer Joe Koff. “Figures Toy Company has exceptional expertise in developing high quality goods. It’s really a fabulous opportunity for Ring of Honor and its fans.”
Ring of Honor will reveal the ROH Series 1 line of figures exclusively at: www.ROHwrestling.com shortly.
