In related news, Moore Action Collectibles, Inc. is hard at work planning the upcoming Angel action figure line based on Twentieth Century Fox's hit television series of the same name. Since the company first announced that they had obtained the Angel license, fans have been chomping at the bit to find out which characters will be included in the action figure line. Now it can be told. The first series will include the handsome, soul-bearing vampire, Angel, his cunning assistant, Cordelia, and the ultimate bad girl we love to hate, Faith.
MAC's project manager, Aaron Ethridge, worked closely with Fox to determine which characters would be used to comprise the first Angel action figure set.
"After much consideration, we mutually decided to go with the characters that made the most sense as action figures," says Ethridge.
The series is scheduled to release mid-2001. Until then, all you Angel fans will just have to make due with the Victorian Angel Bust and ornaments, which Moore will be releasing January 2001.
