Mego Corporation revealed its Impractical Jokers line of action figure toys at Toy Fair. Based on the truTV’s hidden-camera TV series, the series’ four stars – Joe Gatto, James “Murr” Murray, Sal Vulcano and Brian “Q” Quinn – will be the newest additions to the Marty Abrams Presents Mego toy line.
Since the 2018 revival of this 1970s/80s line of classic licensed action figures (originally featuring product licenses for Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, DC and Marvel Super Heroes, KISS, Dr. Who, Joe Namath, Muhammed Ali, Farrah Fawcett, and more) is augmenting the “Legends” line of nostalgia characters with a contemporary “Pop Culture” line that includes the Impractical Jokers.
Currently broadcast around the world, the Impractical Jokers series and the dares and punishments it captures will now live in perpetuity as action figures via Mego Corp’s signature 14-point articulation design. With this license, Mego Corp has recreated some of the more unforgettable costumes worn by the cast members while filming the series.
“One of Mego Corp’s specialties is capturing prominent television characters so fans can keep part of the show at home with them,” said Marty Abrams, co-founder and CEO of Mego Corporation. “Entering their eighth season, Joe, James, Sal and Brian, are creative masterminds; they are hilarious entertainers with whom we have the honor of working in order to provide loyal viewers with access to their favorite ‘Jokers’ in three-dimensional form.”
The line is expected to hit retail in March.
