The company, which launched last June, will produce a range of realistic Manchester United action figures complete with movable head, shoulders, arms, waist, legs, knees and ankles. First off the production line will be Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Nemanja Vidic and Antonio Valencia, with other team members set to follow at a later date.
"To have signed the world's biggest football club as your first-ever license is beyond belief and this is a fantastic opportunity for us," says Mayur Pattni, Pattni Imaginations' managing director. "It's a perfect time to be entering the market with this product and we are already in advanced talks with a number of other top clubs, so there may soon be an army of Premier League action figures out there."
