Bandai UK Ltd is to become the new distributor of the McFarlane Toys product range in the UK and Ireland.

McFarlane Toys, the company from Spawn and Venom creator Todd McFarlane, is an industry leader in the action figure market, with a portfolio of top pop-culture licenses.

Properties in the McFarlane portfolio range from Harry Potter and Fortnite to beloved anime series Naruto and even Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, starring the late David Bowie. The company also specialises in plush toys, role-play, construction sets and toy vehicles.


“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with McFarlane Toys, as we have long admired their product range”, says Nic Aldridge, Managing Director at Bandai UK. 

“They are experts in finding and securing exactly the right properties for the high target collector market, while also providing a high quality, playable toy with more mass market price points.”

Customers will begin seeing the line at upcoming previews and can book appointments to see the range on the Bandai stand at the 2020 London Toy Fair.
Bandai is also inviting those who are travelling to Hong Kong to view the range in the McFarlane showroom. Contact the team on sales@bandai.co.uk or call 0208 324 6160 for more details.
