Lost Toys

The Tie-Ins Continue

The tie-in book isn't enough. The tie-in reality game isn't enough. Now, and I think it was only a matter of time, comes Lost toys:

It’s another jewel in the McFarlane Toys crown – today, Variety reported that the toy company has landed the license to produce action figures based on the hit ABC drama, Lost.

The toys will be released this fall, according to the trade, with the first selection of six figures to include: Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly), Hurley (Jorge Garcia), Locke (Terry O'Quinn), Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) and Shannon (Maggie Grace). Along with the individual figures (which will ship with a scaled prop), McFarlane will also produce boxed sets including the figure with dioramas of locations seen throughout the series. According to the trade, future lines will include Sawyer and Mr. Eko.

McFarlane and company rerpotedly went to the filing location in Hawaii earlier this season to do full body scans of the cast members for the figures.

The toys will be made by the same company who made Don Cherry and the Yellow Submarine toys. Todd McFarlane is also part owner of the Oilers.

I'm not sure if toys are a good sign for the show.
