MOD to Launch Action Figures

Due to launch on the 8th May 2009, the Ministry of Defense is to release its own range of army action figures and toys, in a licensing deal with British toy company Character Options.

The launch of a range on VE Day will include three 10-inch action figures: an infantryman, commando and pilot, with the range also including other toys such as night vision goggles.

The new action figures will be competing with the popular Action Man, and will be released before the GI Joe madness hits in the Summer, with the release of the film G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
