Figures Toy Company Announces Scooby-Doo License
February 24, 2015

FTCScoobyAnnounce1Zoinks!   Earlier this week Figures Toy Company announced that they have picked up the Scooby-Doo license from Warner Brothers Animation and will be making 8″ ‘Re-Mego’ figures based on the Scooby Gang and some of their most famous ghosts, ghouls and villains.    Full line-ups are still forthcoming but the full gang is expected.

Now if they would just re-release one of those vintage “mobile crime lab” VW vans repainted as the Mystery Machine, you’d REALLY be on to something!

We’ll keep you updated on further Scooby-Doo FTC news as it develops.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com.

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com,
Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    would not be surprised if the first wave is shaggy and scooby to start with at least plus hope they also do a mystery machine toy too. as long as scrappy doo does not show up in the line.

    Awesome news! Huge fan of the original Scooby Doo: Where are You series.

    Will definitely buy these if they make a Spooky Space Kook, Ghost of Captain Cutler (glow in the dark variant), Zombie, Ghost Clown, Witch Doctor, etc. In my opinion, if they consistently include those cool classic villains (none of that Scrappy Doo stuff) in the assortments then FTC can be certain that they will be getting my money.

    Can’t wait to see their first assortment.
