Full Moon Features (FMF) announced today the launch of The Full Moon Horror Line, its new premium toy division, creating, developing, and producing a breadth of new, high-end replicas and figures, along with innovative toys and merchandise based on FMF’s vast catalog of legacy franchises and licenses. FMF has tapped award-winning toy and collectibles mogul Rick Phares to develop and oversee all products coming out of its new division.
The Full Moon Horror Line will kick off in Q1 of this year with the launch of its flagship product, the 1:1 scale talking Baby Oopsie prop replica, a high-end collectible from FMF’s cult-following franchise, “Demonic Toys.” Retailing for $299.95, the Baby Oopsie replica is cast from the original prop molds used for the film. It features electronic light-up eyes, actual character voice recordings, and real fabric clothing. The deluxe figure is 25 inches tall and posable. It comes in foil-stamped slipcovers with a COA “birth certificate” signed by FMF CEO and Founder Charles Band and Baby Oopsie Director William Butler. Only 900 units of the flagship replica will be produced and, after selling out, will not be manufactured again. The killer limited edition replica will be available this March at www.FullMoonDirect.com and www.FullMoonHorror.com and is set to hit mass-market retailers later this year.
The Baby Oopsie Replicas will be followed by premium product lines such as; the Subspecies Bloodstone Replica and a high-quality line of 1:1 scale Puppets from Puppet Master, a standalone product apart from any previously released Puppet Master replicas.
Outside of this new line of high-end premium replicas, the Full Moon Horror Line will pivot to retail items such as; the new Blind Box program, “Tiny Terrors,” collectible tin tote lunch boxes, a working “Jack Attack” Jack in the Box, along with additional mass market-friendly merchandise. All items from the new toy division will be available for purchase directly through Full Moon Direct and subsequently made available on a mass-market retail level in North America through an exciting distribution deal freshly inked by FMF. As soon as more details are available, we’ll let you know. Please visit www.FullMooniverse.com/babyoopsiereplica for product updates.
“Our new line of high-quality replica series is so exciting because they’re unlike anything that has been done before,” says Phares. “Baby Oopsie and the subsequent replica series are all handmade in limited quantities and completed by myself and other notable special effects artists.”
