Boss Fight Studio, creator of fan-favorite, highly articulated figures announces their latest action figure line, The Umbrella Academy from television studio Universal Content Productions and brokered by UCP’s licensing agency, Striker Entertainment! With characters based on the wildly popular Netflix show, the action figures will feature Boss Fight’s signature multiple articulation points allowing for creative and imaginative poses.

“The Umbrella Academy has long been one of our favorite shows,” says Catrina Arana, Partner and Art Director at Boss Fight Studio, “we love each character and the uniqueness; I’m excited to bring them to action figure form.

The first wave of figures will include Klaus, Vanya, Diego, and Cha-Cha and is anticipated to hit shelves in Q2 2021. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Boss Fight Studio” says Curtis Matthews, Licensing Executive at Striker Entertainment LLC. “Their signature high articulation and attention to detail will really bring the character personalities forward. The poses and movement possibilities are exciting.

Launched in 2013, Boss Fight Studio originally brought their fan favorite Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S. IP to market, allowing for easy customization and playability of toys. As the company grew, they’ve expanded to host some exciting licenses bringing that same high articulation and attention to detail to fan-loved brands. Umbrella Academy is the latest brand added to the portfolio.

“We can’t wait to excite new fans with these toys. This is our first license with a contemporary show playing as we design. It will be fun to transform the beloved characters along with the story lines on the show” says Arana. “I’ve already started brainstorming how to bring Season 2 characters to life and I can’t wait.

It must be great for them to have gotten a license like this, I haven't watched the series by myself but I have been hearing a lot about it, it is a very popular series at the moment, although when I see that photo of the characters they don't seem to me something that I personally would be interested to get in toy form.

Yeah this seems like a cool idea, I love the show, loved the comics... would have probably rather this be a Comic figure line rather than the show, they don't really look all that exciting in the show to warranted figures IMO, but I'll wait till they show us them to make a final judgement

I absolutely love the show but I find the idea of putting them in figure form to be unappealing. I feel like these are semi grounded in the real world and putting them in a figure would be unappealing and uninteresting. I know there are alot of people out there that dig movie based figures of ordinary joes with a glimmer of power tho so who knows. Im sure they were much more interesting looking in the comics which im also sure less are familiar with than the show but I would imagine those would make for better figures than the ones based on the show.

I see your point but think they could make these cool. Will be interesting to see if they do the team as kids, or their adult versions if if adult what looks will they use.

Do we know if the figures will be show based only or will they make comic versions too?

Yeah 4'' not for me, I was hoping they would have gone for 6'' this time around, but should have known it's Boss Fight, they don't break their tradition it seems.

4" is their comfort zone, plus they already had a foray into the world of 6 inches, maybe it didn't go so well?.
