DC Comics™ DC STARS™ TCF Collection
The Last Mimzy
Certain to be the high-flying collectible of 2007, new TONNER CHARACTER FIGURES™ (TCF™) will hit retail shelves this year with the DC STARS Collection based on classic DC Comics Super Heroes. Licensed by Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Comics, WONDER WOMAN and SUPERGIRL are the first TCFs to hit the specialty stores. “What we have created are not fashion dolls, or typical action figures, but a new type of hybrid,” notes Robert Tonner, CEO and head designer of the award-winning Tonner Company. “I wanted to bring a different approach to the category by working large scale, with more detailed, removable clothing, offering separately available costumes and accessories. I believe a new classification is appropriate--hence the TCF™ concept.” The TONNER CHARACTER FIGURES™ are app. 16" to 17" tall with multiple articulated joints for expressive movement and mobility. In keeping with the fine detail and high-end quality of Tonner’s other popular product lines, TONNER CHARACTER FIGURES™ will feature hand-detailed face painting, rooted hair; and authentic costuming inspired by the character’s life from origin and secret identity to Super Hero. The suggested retail price range starts at $124.99 for dressed TCFs. Separately available clothing will be available as well as character variations in strictly limited edition releases. Tonner will expand the collection in 2007 to include SUPERMAN, LOIS LANE, BATMAN, BATGIRL, and other related DC Comics heroes and villains.
