Update, 2/20/20: The Hero H.A.C.K.S. Flash Gordon Movie Figure and Lunchbox are available now for preorder!
The makers of the Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. collectible action figures inked a new deal to tackle some classic properties.
Hearst’s King Features tapped Boss Fight Studio to produce an all-new line of action figures based on the classic Flash Gordon and The Phantom comic books, in addition to the 1980 Flash Gordon film. The deal was put together by FanGirl Consulting and Brand Management, agent for Boss Fight Studio.
Boss Fight‘s new collector-focused Hero H.A.C.K.S. line will be an extension of the company’s H.A.C.K.S. (Highly Articulated Character Kit System) collection of 4-inch scale figures. Each character will feature detailed sculpts with more than 30 points of articulation.
Launched in 1936, Lee Falk’s The Phantom is still the most widely read superhero comic strip in the world — distributed by King Features to more than 500 newspapers. Flash Gordon has been published since 1934 and continues to be an influential transmedia franchise.
