The toy company will develop a variety of products including action figures, playsets and role-play items, with an expected launch window of autumn 2021.

“Spin Master is the perfect partner for the League of Legends franchise,” said Christian Bayley, Director, Brand Management for consumer products at Riot Games. “Together we have the opportunity to enhance our champions and their stories giving players the opportunity to go even deeper into the League of Legends universe.”
