Holy Guacamole! At this year’s International Toy Fair in New York City, K&M International is planning on unveiling the 39-piece Steve Irwin Wildlife Adventure Series. That’s right, the Crocodile Hunter has an action figure now.
You know, when I was a kid, I had my fair share of action figures. I had all the He-Man toys, Transformers, G.I. Joe’s and I might have even had some Gobots and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved every action figure under the sun. Is it just me that something just doesn’t feel right about this?
Regardless of those feelings, the toys are a go. They have received the approval of Steve Irwin’s widow, Terri. The units will be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Germany and France. The series has already been available at Irwin’s zoo in Australia for the past year.
The action figures also feature Irwin’s own voice, as he offers up a series of his most memorable quotes. The toy line was planned long before Irwin’s tragic death in September of last year.
