As Toy Fair rumbles on in New York, McFarlane Toys announced today a new line of Gears of War action figures.

Known for its gritty, gory, hyper realistic gameplay, Microsoft’s Gears of War has been an Xbox staple for nearly a decade.  One of the most anticipated video games of the year, Gears of War 4 is slated to release Holiday 2016 on Xbox One.

This isn't McFarlane Toys's first major foray into producing high-quality figures in the gaming genre, with the Halo and Assassin’s Creed franchises already available.  The Gears of War figures will be based on the upcoming Gears of War 4 video game and will be a part of McFarlane’s new 2016 Collector Box Program.

The figures will stand 7" tall, have an average of fifteen points of articulation, and feature game accurate accessories and weapons.

“The game does such a great job of giving these characters big dynamic personalities.” said Todd McFarlane, Creative Director and CEO of McFarlane Toys. “We’re going to make sure all that personality gets represented in the action figures.”

The Gears of War 4 action figures will be available at major retail locations beginning Fall of 2016.  Fans can check www.mcfarlane.com and the McFarlane Toys social media channels for updates and news.
