Would you toss a coin for an action figure line of The Witcher Netflix series? If the answer is yes, well, you’re in luck as McFarlane Toys has struck a deal to make one.
According to PlayStation LifeStyle, the toy manufacturer announced the news through Facebook, and the line will release sometime in 2021. No prototypes or concept art has been revealed, but we agree with PS LifeStyle that a Geralt figure based on Henry Cavill’s likeness is certainly going to happen. We can see the Man of Steel and Mission Impossible actor posing with the figure on Instagram in the future as he’s a huge fan of the property.
If you’re unaware, The Witcher TV series from Netflix has been a huge success for the studio with approximately 127 million views during the week of its release. It was even more successful than Star Wars’ The Mandolorian last year.
CD Projekt Red saw a massive growth of interest in their games too. The NPD Group compared The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s sales in December 2018 and December 2019 and saw a 554% increase, due to the popularity of the TV series. It’s no wonder why McFarlane Toys wants to get into this mega-successful franchise with a line of toys.
McFarlane Toys are known for high-quality products that are relatively affordable and yet look great on a shelf. They’re known for their toys based on The Witcher 3 game series, Mortal Kombat, My Hero Academia, Spawn, and DC, among many others.
Netflix has doubled down on both of these Polish properties as they are producing anime for both The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077. Season 2 of The Witcher is also on the way.
The Witcher game franchise has now sold over 50 million copies worldwide, but a sequel to the game is likely far away as CD Projekt Red is hard at work with Cyberpunk 2077. While Geralt’s story might be over, there is certainly an opportunity for Ciri to take over the lead role. She has the charisma to have her own solo adventure and could even be a more intriguing protagonist than the old man.
What we do know is that there will be a toy line based on The Witcher Netflix series in 2021 and that Cyberpunk 2077 will be releasing on December 10, 2020 (hopefully).
