Epoch Everlasting Play, the U.S. subsidiary of Japanese toy manufacturer Epoch Co., has announced a licensing agreement with K-Pop stars BTS. 

Fans of BTS can get to work putting together their favorite band member depicted in a 108-piece puzzle. Each puzzle features a different member: RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook, and when completed depicts images from their latest album “MAP OF THE SOUL: 7.” The collectible puzzles are currently available for pre-sale on Amazon, with sales starting in October.

“Hot off the heels of their VMA performance and Billboard Hot 100 No.1 feat with ‘Dynamite,’ we’ve created a way to bring the charms of each band member to the homes of families across the globe,” says Jeff Cheslik, chief executive officer, Epoch Everlasting Play. “Our mission at Epoch has always been to strengthen generational family bonds through play and the new licensed deal enables kids and parents to share in on the pop culture fun.” 

In other BTS licensing news, the Korean boyband partnered with Mattel163 for UNO! Mobile as well as with Starbucks Korea for a special menu and merchandise in honor of their newest album.
