McFarlane Toys recently announced it would be producing a series of action figures based on the characters of ABC's hit TV show Lost. Series 1 of the toys will feature toys of Jack, Kate, Locke, Hurley, Charlie and Shannon.
Each 6-inch figure will have a detailed base and photographic backdrop, capturing an episode-specific moment in the character's story. In addition, each package will include a detailed prop reproduction central to the character's story, enabling fans to "own" a piece of the show's mythology. For example, Kate's figure will be packaged with a reproduction of the toy airplane that plays so prominently into her back-story.
McFarlane will also be releasing Lost deluxe boxed sets that re-create key moments between multiple characters, and small-scale dioramas replicating central locations like the mysterious island and the infamous hatch.
The Lost action figures are scheduled to be released late fall 2006.
