Funko is very excited to bring you the newest Legacy Collection series – Magic: The Gathering Planeswalkers! Funko has had the Magic license for a while, but since then they have started to make Legacy Collection figures, they needed to expand the existing licensing agreement with Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, to produce Magic: The Gathering Planeswalkers Legacy Collection Action Figures.
“We are deeply honored and very excited that Wizards of the Coast chose Funko as a partner to develop truly cool collectibles for Magic: The Gathering. I know the fans of Magic have been waiting nearly 20 years to get their hands on some fantastic Action Figures and stylized Vinyl figures. I promise that we won’t disappoint them!” said Brian Mariotti, CEO of Funko.
“We are excited to bring the world’s best strategy game to life with these figures,” said Elaine Chase, Brand Director for Magic: The Gathering at Wizards of the Coast. “Funko has been a great partner, and we’re looking forward to giving players yet another way to enjoy Magic: The Gathering.”
With the announcement of these new Magic action figures, it marks the very first time that fans have been able to get their hands on their favorite characters as fully articulated action figures. This is a deluxe line of action figures, with each figure featuring 20+ points of articulation. They come with character specific accessories and feature highly detailed and premium sculpts. This line features the same characters that were released in the Funko Pop! Magic: The Gathering vinyl figure series. Included in series 1 is Jace Beleren, Garruk Wildspeaker, Ajani Goldmane, Missa Revane, Liliana Yess, and Chandra Nalaar.
Funko has just started to accept pre-orders for this new line, so if you didn’t want to jump on the early pre-orders that popped up around Toy Fair 2014, now would be your time to order. You can currently pre-order them all here.
