Tudor Games, National Football League Announce License Agreement, New NFL Electric Football Games, NFL Team Action Figures
Seattle, WA (August, 2014) – Tudor Games, makers of the original Electric Football® game, today announced a licensing agreement with the National Football League to market a new collection of NFL Electric Football games and NFL Team Action Figure sets.
While two teams of football players still face off on the vibrating gridiron to create the action and fun, that’s where the similarities end between the new NFL Electric Football games and previous Electric Football models, first made in 1947. All new for 2014, the NFL Electric Football games sport innovative features including Invisibase™ Cleats, SpeedTurf™ Fields, and PlayAction™ Remote Controls.
“We’ve completely redesigned and updated Electric Football for today’s consumer, without losing the magic that makes our game a classic,” said Doug Strohm, President of Tudor Games. “The new NFL Electric Football product line offers a better and more realistic tabletop football experience thanks to our team’s dedication to improved game play and the application of advanced materials and technology.”
“We’re thrilled to engage in this licensing agreement with Tudor Games,” said Timothy Langley, Director of Consumer Products for the NFL. “We believe these NFL Electric Football games and action figures are an exciting new take on a proven fan favorite and are an excellent fit with our goal to promote and support NFL football, enhance fan interest and loyalty, and ensure that our fans have access to quality products.”
Major enhancements include Invisibase Speed and Strength Cleats, devices that propel the one inch action figure players across the field with accuracy. Translucent in color, players wearing Invisibase Cleats appear to be running directly on the new SpeedTurf playing fields. SpeedTurf replaces the noisy and problematic metal boards of the past with a fully detailed hi-tech surface, powered by a variable speed handheld PlayAction Remote Control.
The new battery-operated games are available in three playing field sizes:
NFL Electric Football
24″ x 13″ playing field and a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $59.95.
NFL Deluxe Electric Football
32″ x 16″ playing field, includes two NFL Teams, with an MSRP of $89.95.
NFL Pro Bowl Electric Football
36″ x 18″ playing field, includes two NFL teams, with an MSRP of $129.95.
NFL Electric Football Action Figures are available in sets of 11 players in home and away uniforms for every team. The new products will be available immediately online and available at major retailers this holiday shopping season.
