New Wesley And Lorne Figures - Diamond Select Toys

Wednesday 10 November 2004, by Webmaster



Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles, LLC is pleased to announce the next releases in the growing Angel action figure line. The latest figures are based on the characters Wesley and Lorne, from the popular TV series. Both characters will have multiple variations available, when they hit retailers in April of 2005.

"Ever since we took over the Buffy and Angel licenses, fans have been asking about our plans for the next Angel figures." said Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles Marketing Coordinator Mike Leavey. "With these new figures, we’re excited to show fans exactly what they can expect from future Buffy and Angel releases - episode-specific figures, impressive accessories like the Weapon’s Cabinet, and exclusive variants which reflect important moments from the history of each character."

Krevlorneswath of the Deathwok Clan, or Lorne for short, has long been an instrument of The Powers That Be. Able to read people’s destinies while they sing, Lorne originally used his talents to run a successful, albeit oft-demolished, karaoke bar named Caritas - Latin for Sanctuary. After assisting Angel Investigations on several occasions, Lorne joined the crew in their move to the evil Wolfram & Hart where he ran the Entertainment Division.

Originally a member of the Watcher’s Council, Wesley Wyndam-Price served as Watcher to two Slayers - Buffy and Faith. Not quite working out to the Council’s satisfaction, Wesley was fired - sending him into a period of soul-searching which led him to L.A. and Angel Investigations. Wesley underwent an amazing self-transformation while serving as their resident occult expert, and later as resident wild card. Additionally, Wesley served as head of the Occult Division of Wolfram & Hart until his apparent death at the hands of master-sorcerer Cyvus Vail.

Exclusive variants of each of these figures will be offered by select retailers both online and in stores. These exclusives will depict some of the most well known and much wanted episodes from Angel and Buffy, and each they each come with a variety of accessories. The specific figures and their retailers will be announced shortly.
