If you still play with dolls (or have children that do), you may be interested in JAKKS Pacific’s upcoming line of UFC-related action figures and accessories, which will hit stores this fall. MMA Weekly passes along this press release laying out the details:
UFC Fall 2009 lineup from JAKKS is expected to include:
UFC Deluxe Figures feature 29 points of articulation to recreate the most dramatic MMA moves*. JAKKS expects to ship new waves every other month**, each featuring at least eight different fighters, as well as exclusive assortments available at different mass retailers nationwide. A replica fight poster from each event will also be included with each purchase. Ages 8+, Suggested Retail Price $9.99
The Octagon is where all the action happens. JAKKS’ 14” Basic UFC Octagon playset features hinged “play-doors” for easy access and is the perfect place for kids to battle and recreate their favorite fight moments. Ages 8+, Suggested Retail Price $19.99
The Official Scale Deluxe UFC Octagon playset is a huge, 30”, authentic 1:1 size in scale to the Deluxe UFC action figures. This Ultimate Octagon playset features more than 40 unique pieces***, vinyl padded posts, removable foam-polymer mat and cage pieces for battle access. Ages 8+, Suggested Retail Price $99.99
Play like a true champion with your very own collection of UFC Championship Belts. These authentic, wearable replica belts for UFC, Pride, and WEC are the only ones on the market that fit adults**** and kids. Ages 8+, Suggested Retail Price $11.99
* Yes, even the Nelmark Pretzel.
*** The line of figures will eventually include fighters from PRIDE and the WEC. The order of figures released can be seen here, allegedly, but I’m having a really hard time believing it. Yushin Okami and Thales Leites are in the first series? And they’re actually wasting their time making a Josh Burkman doll? Talk about the shittiest Christmas gift ever.
*** If you’ll notice in the first thumbnail image, they even include a tiny little scale. Admirable attention to detail, or needless choking hazard?
**** Just because you can wear the replica UFC championship belt, doesn’t mean you should. The last thing I need to see is some jacked-up tool wearing one of these out at a bar, telling drunk women he’s an Ultimate Fighter.
