Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC and Time and Space Toys are pleased to announce a partnership bringing Andy Hallett, the actor who brought to life Lorne on Angel, to the upcoming Wizard World Chicago Show (Aug. 5th - 7th). Hallett will be available to sign autographs in both the Time and Space Toys and Diamond Select booths.
Time and Space Toys' booth will feature an Exclusive Lorne Figure, available only at this show. The figure, "House Always Wins" Lorne, features Lorne in "Vegas Attire," and comes with a microphone, microphone base, martini, bottle, stage and speakers. Hallett will be autographing this figure for fans in the Time and Space Toys booth. In addition, Time and Space Toys will bring a bit of Las Vegas to Chicago with a flashy casino-themed booth complete with gaming, contests and giveaways.
"We are going all out, Vegas-style, to highlight this great Angel episode, action figure, and the actor that made it all happen," said Kevin Kriess, President of Time and Space Toys. "This is an event Buffy/Angel fans will not want to miss."
Diamond Select Toys will be offering an Exclusive T1 Lorne at the show, which is limited to 500 pieces. The figure, which comes packaged in a white window box, will only be sold at the show on Sunday. The specific time will be announced as to when the purchase of the figure will come with a free autograph by Andy Hallett.
"This show will be a success for Time and Space Toys and for us, but most importantly for the fans that are getting two great figures and getting a chance to meet Andy," remarked Michael Leavey, Marketing and Sales Coordinator for Diamond Select.
