The Noble Collection inked an expanded deal with Universal Brand Development to bring more properties from NBCUniversal to market in the year ahead.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Amblin Entertainment’s E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in 2022, The Noble Collection will debut an E.T. commemorative collection — including a Collector Plush — based on the film from director Steven Spielberg.
Additionally, The Noble Collection will expand its line of Toyllectible figures and products, including stationery, candle holders, bookends, jewelry, and more with new licenses, including Illumination’s Minions and Despicable Me, Universal Monsters, DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and more.
“These classic and entertaining franchises have sparked the imagination and captured the hearts of people around the world for decades,” says Julian Montoya, senior vice president, The Noble Collection. “We are excited to expand our partnership with Universal Brand Development to provide fans and collectors of all ages with an opportunity to celebrate their connection with these amazing characters and stories. This relationship is an excellent example of The Noble Collection’s commitment to collaborate with globally recognized franchises powered by passionate fandoms as we strive to be the premier developer of Toyllectible products.”
The company plans to extend its recently launched BendyFigs line with collectible figures based on E.T., DreamWorks’ Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and Madagascar, and horror properties, including Happy Death Day, The Purge, and more.
