Jazware's is handling the movie A-Team toys. Here's the original PR from last December:

Jazwares™, a leader in the licensed products marketplace, has been tapped by Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising (Fox Licensing) to develop an extensive toy line for the upcoming feature film The A-Team. The launch of the Jazwares product line, which includes action figures in various sizes, vehicles, and electronics, will coincide with the movie's release in June 2010.

"The release of The A-Team film will introduce a new generation of fans to the heroes of the popular series," said Laura Zebersky, executive vice president sales, Jazwares. "The A-Team is a part of pop culture history and we look forward to playing a role in its return."

"Jazwares is part of the 'A-Team' of licensees we've assembled to work on the merchandising program for this fantastic property," said Lora Cohn, VP of Fox Licensing. "We are confident that both old and new fans alike will be pleased by what Jazwares introduces to retail."

The Jazwares toy line will include 3 ¾" action figures in an A-Team assortment and villain assortment, 12" B.A. Baracus and Hannibal Smith collector figures with voice chips, an electronic A-Team van for the 3 ¾" figures, plus other retailer exclusive packs. The product line will also include electronic items such as Walkie Talkies, an alarm clock and digital camera.


Some early prototype pics recently surfaced:

Personally, as a big fan of the original series (who hated the original toys from Galoob) and someone who's excited about the upcoming movie I can't wait for these!

Yeah, I'll be buying these.

I liked the looks of their Percy Jackson line. I wouldn't buy any of it, but it did look good.

And everybody needs a Bradley Cooper figure.

I love that van! I'm glad companies are starting to abandon the "collector scale" and make more things in the 3.75" scale again so they can pack in some play value.

Looking forward to the movie but don't know if I'll be picking these up. I sense nostalgia will get the better of me though, and the small fun scale helps.

The pics are up!

http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2010/05/14/th ... -together/

I think these are looking really sharp! I cannot wait to have the team and the van on my shelf!

BTW, these are supposed to be on shelves in June just prior to the movie on 6/11.

BTW, I asked Jazwares and these will be at TRU, Target and specialty retailers. Look for 'em in early June.
