Jazwares, a leader in the licensed products marketplace, has been tapped by Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising (Fox Licensing) to develop an extensive toy line for the upcoming feature film The A-Team. The launch of the Jazwares product line, which includes action figures in various sizes, vehicles, and electronics, will coincide with the movie's release in June 2010.

"The release of The A-Team film will introduce a new generation of fans to the heroes of the popular series," said Laura Zebersky, executive vice president sales, Jazwares. "The A-Team is a part of pop culture history and we look forward to playing a role in its return."

"Jazwares is part of the ‘A-Team’ of licensees we’ve assembled to work on the merchandising program for this fantastic property," said Lora Cohn, VP of Fox Licensing. "We are confident that both old and new fans alike will be pleased by what Jazwares introduces to retail.”

The Jazwares toy line will include 3 ¾” action figures in an A-Team assortment and villain assortment, 12" B.A. Baracus and Hannibal Smith collector figures with voice chips, an electronic A-Team van for the 3 ¾” figures, plus other retailer exclusive packs. The product line will also include electronic items such as Walkie Talkies, an alarm clock and digital camera.

The A-Team follows the exciting and daring exploits of Hannibal Smith and his colorful team of former Special Forces soldiers who were set up for a crime they did not commit. Going “rogue,” they utilize their unique talents – and eccentricities – to try and clear their names and find the true culprit. The A-Team hits everywhere June 11, 2010.

Liam Neeson, whose many credits include the Oscar-winning Schindler’s List and the recent box office hit Taken portrays Hannibal Smith, a master planner of inventive missions requiring split-second timing, unusual skills and a team of incredibly proficient and eccentric soldiers; Bradley Cooper, who shot to movie superstardom in the smash comedy The Hangover, is Templeton “Face” Peck, who can procure anything for the Team’s unorthodox and daring activities; Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, a professional mixed martial artist and a top rated UFC light heavyweight, is B.A. Baracas, the Team’s driver and muscle; and Sharlto Copley, who stars in the surprise summer hit District 9, is H.M “Howling Mad” Murdock, a gifted pilot – and certified loon. Jessica Biel (The Illusionist) stars as Capt. Charisa Sosa, a former love interest of Face’s, but who’s now relentlessly pursuing the Team for a crime not of their doing. Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) is Lynch, a mysterious CIA operative who is a key player in the Team’s most explosive mission.

Joe Carnahan (Narc, Smokin’ Aces) directs from a screenplay by Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Carnahan, and Carnahan’s writing partner Brian Bloom (writing credit not final), based on the television series “The A-Team.” The producers are Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Jules Daly, Stephen J. Cannell, Alex Young, Iain Smith, and Spike Seldin.
