Playmates Toys announced at the Fall Toy Preview in Dallas that they will be producing toys based on the fourth installment in the TERMINATOR franchise. TERMINATOR SALVATION, debuting May 22, 2009, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Sony Pictures, will receive "an edgy line of collectible action toys targeting kids and collectors."
The initial film window launch will include a full assortment of fully-articulated action figures (multiple scales) featuring new, never-seen-before Terminators; battle-ready replica vehicles; and signature role play items: the Terminator T-600 Voice ‘n’ Vision Skull with authentic red light-up eyes, voice changer/sound effects and the Terminator Deluxe T-600 Fist that vibrates, fires and emits sounds.
In the Fall, Playmates will introduce the Skynet playset; assortments of six new figures in basic (3¾”) and deluxe scales (6”); several new signature vehicles including remote control and skin peeling Terminators in super size (10”); and much more. Playmates plans on establishing the TERMINATOR SALVATION toy license as "a solid action toy segment for the next several years."
