Lost Stars To Be Turned Into Action Figures
The stars of hit TV drama LOST are to be turned into action figures by toymaking giants MCFarlane Toys. In a licensing agreement with Disney-ABC Television Group's Touchstone Television, MCFarlane Toys will produce a series of action figures, which will be in stores at the end of the year (06). The first batch of six characters will feature JACK (MATTHEW FOX), KATE (EVANGELINE LILLY), HURLEY (JORGE GARCIA), LOCKE (TERRY O'QUINN), CHARLIE (DOMINIC MONAGHAN) and SHANNON (MAGGIE GRACE). Each action figure will come complete with a detailed base and photographic backdrop, capturing an episode-specific moment in the character's story. MCFarlane Toys boss TODD MCFARLANE recently spent time with the cast on location in Hawaii, where the desert island drama is filmed, to develop artistic likenesses of the stars. He says, "All of the key cast members were kind enough to allow me to scan their facial likenesses, so we can make the figures as realistic as possible. We now have the data. "In the end, we hope to be able to re-create all of the major cast members. As the years go by, fans of the show will be able to collect their own society of Lost characters."
