McFarlane Toys has announced that they will be producing toys based on the Gears of War 4 video game. They have posted up the product page with some info. The figure will be 7″ scale articulated action figures. They will be part of their new Redcap Collection collectors box releases. They’re scheduled to hit shelves this Fall. Expect to see the first releases at Toy Fair this weekend!
Gears of War takes place on Sera, an Earth-type planet recovering from lifetimes of violence and conflict. Leaving violence to the pages of history, Sera begins a golden-age of culture, science and arts; but the energy demands of this new age soon surpassed conventional means. Again, wars raged. That all ended on Emergence Day, when a sentient species of creatures known as the Locusts erupted from underground. Now Sera fights for its survival.
“The game does such a great job of giving these characters big dynamic personalities.” said Todd McFarlane, Creative Director and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “We’re going to make sure all that personality gets represented in the action figures.”
