CORPSE BRIDE FIGURES ON STORE SHELVES SOON
Here Comes the Bride!
Friday, October 21, 2005

McFarlane's line of Corpse Bride action figures and toys is scheduled to arrive in stores early-November. The phenomenal success of Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (more than $47 million in box office receipts to date) has fueled the demand for our line of toys, which beautifully recreates favorite characters from the madly macabre stop-motion feature film.

Set in a 19th century European village, Corpse Bride follows the story of Victor (Johnny Depp), a young man who is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham-Carter), while his real bride, Victoria (Emily Watson), waits bereft in the land of the living. Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colorful than his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love. It's a tale of optimism, romance and a very lively afterlife, told in classic Tim Burton style.

The McFarlane line will include 6-inch figures and 3-inch boxed sets. Other items, available in the coming months, include plush figures and fashion dolls. Key chains and shot glasses will be available at Tower Records or at tower.com. Keep it tuned to spawn.com for release dates.
