McFarlane Toys announces a partnership with Activision to produce action figures for the upcoming video game, Call of Duty®: World at War. The line is expected to hit store shelves in fall 2008, and retail for around $10- $15.
Developed by Treyarch and built using the Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare™ engine, Call of Duty: World at War thrusts players into the chaos of WWII combat, challenging them to band together to survive the climactic battles of the South Pacific and European theaters that led to the demise of the Axis powers. Re-defining WWII by offering an uncensored experience with unique enemies and combat tactics, Call of Duty: World at War offers cooperative gameplay, a franchise first which enables players to fight together like never before.
McFarlane Toys’ first series of highly detailed, game-accurate Call of Duty: World at War action figures will consist of four soldiers:
* MARINE CORPS WITH FLAMETHROWER, Battle of Peleliu – Includes M2-2 flamethrower with removable flame, and M1911A1 pistol & holster
* MARINE INFANTRY, Battle of Peleliu – Includes M1 Garand rifle and M1 bayonet
* MARINE CORPS WITH MACHINE GUN, Battle of Okinawa – Includes M-1928A1 machine gun w/20 round magazine and M1911A1 pistol & holster
* BRITISH SPECIAL OPS, Battle for the Roer Triangle – Includes Mark II Sten gun
Look for Call of Duty: World at War action Series 1 to reach stores in November.
One has to wonder, with Call of Duty & Guitar Hero, maybe McFarlane has a master license deal with Activision? Can we be getting Gun, Tony Hawk, Quake, or Diablo figures anytime soon?
