Playmates Toys announced today that its Mysticons toy line, based on the new animated action series airing on Nickelodeon, is now available at select Toys”R”Us® stores nationwide and online at both Toysrus.com and Amazon.com. The expansive toy line, which will become available at additional retailers later this year, features Playmates Toys’ first action figures designed specifically for girls, along with an assortment of flying creatures, plush and role play items.
“At its core, Mysticons celebrates every girls’ strength, confidence and character, which provides an exciting new opportunity for us to develop a truly unique toy line that empowers girls to use their imagination to create their very own mythical quests,” said Gina Beebe, Senior Vice President of Girls’ Marketing, Playmates Toys. “Toys”R”Us is the leading dedicated toy retailer and a destination for fun and play that kids love, so we’re excited to have them be the first brick and mortar store to introduce this new toy line that delivers all of the action and good vs. evil play traditionally found only in boys action figure lines.”
Produced by Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, the original animated action series Mysticons premiered on Nickelodeon in August 2017. Mysticons tells the epic tale of four girls from different walks of life who are transformed into legendary warriors. After discovering a powerful mystical tome, the fearless foursome — Arkayna, Zarya, Em, and Piper — are drawn together by a prophecy to battle evil and protect the realm. The series features real relationships and distinct personalities, with strong, confident, smart, witty, and funny characters.
“We are thrilled that the Mysticons toy line is now available, allowing fans of the series to take their mythical quests off screen and into playtime,” said Pam Westman, Head, Nelvana Enterprises. “Playmates Toys has done a fantastic job of bringing the most epic and unique aspects of Mysticons to life through this line, and we can’t wait to see kids gear up for their Mysticons-themed adventures.”
