Diamond Select Toys and Skybound Entertainment have announced a new partnership to bring action figures from the Skybound Invincible series to comic book stores in 2021.
Invincible ran for 144 issues and will translate to a Netflix animated series in 2021, and it is from this new series the figures will be taken. The figures will be 7 inch in scale and feature additional hands, alternative heads and accessories. The line will launch with Invincible and his father, Omni-Man.
The figure pre-orders are now open (23rd December 2020) and will ship in the Summer of 2021.
The figures will stand at seven inches, and each will come with a second angry head, multiple interchangeable hands, and baseball gloves. Invincible will come with a baseball and a Reanimen head, while Omni-Man will come with a chunk of concrete and a Flaxan arm. Each figure will feature approximately 18 points of articulation.
“It’s a thrill to be working on Invincible action figures for the new animated series,” said DST president Chuck Terceira. “The comic was groundbreaking, and the animated version should be unlike anything that has been seen before. It’s the perfect time to launch a toy line, and I think collectors will be very happy with the product we’ve developed.”

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
