England Match Stars figures to launch in 2012
A range of England football-themed Match Stars figures has been announced by Pattni Imaginations.

Pattni Imaginations has announced it will release a range of England football team Match Stars action figures to capitalise on the 2012 European Championships.

The toymaker has signed a deal for image rights with BBC Worldwide, the licensing agent of the FA, to produce the range of figures wearing the famous Three Lions shirt.

Speaking to ToyNews, managing director of Pattni Imaginations Mayur Pattni explained the company is aiming to release its new football-themed product line in May 2012, if not sooner.

"This will allow us to tap into the excitement surrounding the Euros and give England fans a new way of supporting their favourite players during the competition," he added.

Aimed at football-mad boys, the Match Stars range features figures with moveable arms, legs, wrists, waists and more, along with a spring-loaded kicking action.

Players from five teams - Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Barcelona - are included in the current Match Stars line-up.
