World Leader in Wrestling Toys JAKKS Pacific Signs TNA for Worldwide Master Toy License

Wrestling: Jay Cochran - 2008.02.13
The world leader in wrestling toys, JAKKS Pacific Inc. (NASDAQ: JAKK), today announced that it signed an exclusive five year worldwide Master Toy License with TNA (Total Nonstop Action) Entertainment LLC for TNA Wrestling, with a planned launch expected to commence in 2010.

JAKKS’ new TNA Master Toy License includes all styles of action figures, playsets, accessories and role play toys as well as collectible items based on TNA Wrestling’s top talent which includes wrestling megastars Kurt Angle, Booker T, Christian Cage, Samoa Joe, A.J. Styles, Kevin Nash, Team 3D and other wrestlers who have chosen to align with the world’s fastest growing wrestling league, TNA Wrestling.

TNA has been increasing in popularity since its inception in 2002. “TNA iMPACT” airs every Thursday night from 9:00 – 11:00 PM, ET/PT on Spike TV (available in 96.1 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks). Through a combination of televised programming, pay-per view and live events, TNA is also available in over 110 countries around the globe. For instance, the United Kingdom, historically JAKKS’ strongest international territory for wrestling toys, is also TNA’s strongest international territory, with programming having just moved from Bravo II to the main Bravo channel.

“TNA’s stellar and growing arsenal of top world famous wrestlers, impressive ratings increases, aggressive live touring event schedule, and mounting exposure worldwide, coupled with JAKKS’ expertise as the world’s leading wrestling toy maker, bodes well for this new wrestling toy line to create a perfect storm,” said JAKKS’ Chairman and CEO Jack Friedman. “By the time 2010 arrives, TNA should be able to increase its market share even more significantly, and fans should be even more receptive to a new and exciting wrestling toy line.”

“TNA fans have come to expect the very best in professional wrestling in everything we do, and JAKKS represents the top of the line in pro wrestling action figures,” said Dixie Carter, President of TNA Wrestling. “We could not be more thrilled to have the world’s leading wrestling toymaker join the fastest growing professional wrestling brand in the world. We believe that JAKKS’ strength in the wrestling action figure genre will help continue TNA's reinvention of pro wrestling."
