Heathside has closed a licensing agreement with ITV Studios to launch 2.75-inch action figures for “Space 1999,” “UFO,” “Thunderbirds,” “Captain Scarlet” and “Joe 90.” The production will launch in the spring through select retail partners and be directed to consumers globally through MasterReplicas.com. 

“Again, we are adding some core fan-favorite IP to our increasing portfolio of properties; the huge global fanbase for this license will mean we will be able to bring some really nice content to fans worldwide,” says Darren Epstein, executive vice president, global business development, Heathside. “Product should be available from June 2024.’’ 

“ITV Studios is proud to have such iconic British brands in its portfolio,” says Jurian van der Meer, executive vice president, brand licensing, ITV Studios. “Shows like Thunderbirds helped shape the history of British television and have a very loyal fanbase worldwide. These new action figures will come just in time to celebrate Thunderbirds’ 60th anniversary in 2025.”
