UFC Series #3 Confirmed - Rumors for #4 - Belts #2

November 3rd, 2009

Hey guys,

I’m getting a lot of feedback that you guys need more info!  I love it.  I am here for you.  You want more, just ask and I will provide…

Quick update - UFC figures #0 and #1 should be in stores now.  All figures.  I know that Kendall Grove and Miguel Torres are tough to find because they shipped out a bit late, but the full assortments for each should be out now.  And, don’t forget about those “First 100″ chasers :)  As you know our belts and basic Octagon playset should also be out in stores now.  Coming very soon:  The Official Scale Deluxe Octagon playset should be hitting stores in about a week or 2.  It’s a bit pricey (rising costs), but it is very cool (if I do say so myself :)) and would highly recommend for you guys.

Now the fun stuff.  You heard it hear first :)

UFC Belts #2 - Will include the UFC Championship belt again from series #1 + the Ultimate Ultimate belt and the Pride Grand Prix!  What do you think?

UFC Deluxe Figures #2 - Check out the pics!  What do you think?

UFC Deluxe Figures #3 - It’s official.  Here is the full list of characters:  Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, BJ Penn, Jon Fitch, Mark Coleman (Legends Pack), Shogun Rua (Pride Pack), Karo Parysian, Thiago Silva.

UFC Deluxe Figures #4 - Still finalizing the assortment, but I’m feeling quite giving right now and don’t mind sharing some plans with you.  If everything goes well, I think you can expect the likes of Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin.  Oh and maybe even KS?

UFC Hits Shelves, Toy Fair & Wave 3!!!

October 5th, 2009

Hey guys!

We’ve got some major news for you!

1 - Product is on shelf!  Although just trickling in now, you can find wave 0 at TRU now.  It’s a bit tough to find as the stores are just rolling product in, but keep looking.  Also note that the very first shipment of toys to TRU does NOT include Kendall Grove or Miguel Torres.  However, they will be rolling in to Wal-Mart and all TRU’s in the next few weeks.  Remember to look for the “First 100″ of each figure.  And if you get one, hold on to it.  I had to give mine up :(

2 - Toy Fair is going to be good.  If I do say so myselft, toy fair this year should be great.  Check out mmafigs.com for pictures, updates and interviews as the show goes on.  We will be showing new figure scales, new playsets and more!  We will also have Royce Gracie in our UFC room to answer a few questions and signing a few figures for some really lucky people in attendance.

3 - Wave 3 is official.  I’ll let the news leak out slowly, so make sure to check back in on mmafigs.com and our Jakks UFC Facebook page, but can anyone say Randy Couture?  Or how about Tito Ortiz?  That’s right, you heard it here first.  Randy and Tito confirmed for wave 3.  More details to follow…

Send me your comments, questions, concerns, wishlists…

A few quick updates:

  • UFC Action Figures should be hitting shelves at the end of the month.

UFC Fan Expo & Exclusive Figure News

July 1st, 2009

Hey all,

Happy 1st of July!  I wanted to take a minute to post some news about our upcoming show at the UFC Fan Expo and our exclusive figure that we are releasing to support the first ever public display of our UFC toy line.  Stop by booth #427 on July 10th or 11th and get an exclusive first look at our full line of products being released this fall.  We’ll have all of our exciting launch items on display:  Wave 0 and Wave 1 deluxe figures, basic and Official Scale Octagon playsets, wearable belts and examples of our new packaging look!

In addition, we will have live fighter signings!  I can’t mention any names, but you can bet that they are some of the greatest fighters in MMA history!

If that’s not enough, we’ve worked hard to bring you an awesome exclusive with several important differences from other exclusives we’ve done in the past:

  1. Platinum Edition Chuck Liddell– With this being the platinum anniversary of UFC, we thought it fitting to create a “Platinum Edition” figure that we could sell to the public.  See the below flyer for an exclusive first look at the figure.
  2. Available to everyone – Our previous exclusive for NYTF was a special give-away that only a few key accounts and media outlets were able to get their hands on.  This exclusive figure will be available for purchase by anyone at the show.  The first 250 figures go on sale at 10:00 am on Friday followed on Saturday by the second set of 250.
  3. Serialized numbering– In the past, we’ve stickered all figures the same way “1:500.”  For this exclusive, we are numbering each figure individually!  So, if you are the first person in line, you get the very first figure!  Person #2 gets the second and so on…

Well, I really hope to see you there.  Come by, meet the fighters, see the new toy line, ask us questions and hang out with us.  We might even have a few other surprises for you at the show!

Take care,

Enrique
