Moose Toys, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, has released its full line of toys based on Space Jam: A New Legacy — including new Goon Squad toys, which are now available in stores and online nationwide alongside LeBron James and the Tune Squad toys.
In the film, LeBron James and the Tune Squad face off against the Goon Squad, which is enhanced with special abilities. Their line-up includes super-enhanced, animated versions of real life basketball all-stars playing to win within the Warner 3000 entertainment digital “serververse.” Coached by a rogue A.I. called Al G Rhythm, the Goon Squad includes:
- Chronos: A gold-plated Goon whose appearance triggers Dame Time, locking the opposing team into slo-mo while he runs circles around them.
- White Mamba: Her body morphs into an actual deadly mamba, enabling her to glide, coil, and strike like never before.
- Arachnneka: She has the Tune Squad up in “arms” – six arms to be exact. With the power of an arachnid and legendary speed and agility, she spins heads instead of webs as she passes, shoots and multi-dunks with ease.
- Wet/Fire: This Goon creates his own weather hazards on the court with his ability to shoot flames or splash waves of water into the path of the opposing team.
- The Brow: As if extra speed and strength weren’t enough, an impressive span of bright blue wings ensures that he rises above his competition on the court.
Taking on the Goon Squad is the Tune Squad, featuring basketball star LeBron James alongside Looney Tunes fan favorites led by Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny.
The Space Jam: A New Legacy line includes action figures, playsets, collectibles, plush characters and more, including Goo Heroes, which are inspired by Moose Toys’ Heroes of Goo Jit Zu brand. It also includes the Super Shoot and Dunk LeBron James featuring a high-flying action figure that jumps, dunks, and hangs on the rim, just like James’ character in the film.
“Launching the toy line ahead of the movie’s release fuels the enthusiasm for Space Jam: A New Legacy. This gives fans a chance to create their own Tune Squad versus Goon Squad action play and lets them get familiar with this cast of characters,” said Joe Smith, senior director of global marketing, licensed brands, Moose Toys. “The Goon Squad toys bring their onscreen counterparts to life in vivid detail. The action figures show off their intimidating appearance and each one’s special ability in ‘wicked’ detail. But can Goons defeat Tunes? Fans will have to wait for the movie to watch this epic match up play out, but until then they can use their imaginations to create their own epic games and endings.”
