The world’s most narcissistic secret agent– and his ISIS colleagues– are getting their own toy line! Factory Entertainment revealed they have acquired the license to the funniest show on TV, which will include everything from plush dolls to statues to collector-oriented action figures.
This is awesome news for me (not as much for my wallet)– Factory Entertainment’s press release below gives a few hints at what we’re going to see when they debut the line at Toy Fair in a few weeks, and the inclusion of items like a plush of the wee Baby Seamus and Pam’s dolphin hand puppet prove these guys really get the property.
I mean, how could you NOT want a dolphin hand puppet of your own???
Here’s the press release… expect more coverage on this exciting line when Toy Fair kicks off in February.
