Press Release – Markham, ON (November 8th, 2012) – Round 5 President Damon Lau announces the release of three new Hall of Fame Edition figures as part of the Ultimate Collector Series 11 lineup.
The Hall of Fame release includes former UFC light heavyweight champion and the UFC’s first mainstream cross-over star, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, five-time champion, Randy “The Natural” Couture, and the first ever UFC tournament champion and the man who put MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on the map, Royce Gracie.
All three Hall of Fame figures are individually numbered, with a limited run of 500 units per character. As a bonus for collectors, the Hall of Fame figures are constructed out of a clear plastic, something completely new for Round 5.
“When I first become a fan of MMA, Chuck, Randy, and Royce were up and coming stars and larger than life characters,” says Lau. “I wanted to create a release for these guys that puts them up on a pedestal, exactly where they should be. I think we nailed it.”
Each Hall of Fame Edition figure in Ultimate Collector Series 11 arrives on shelves in collectible and protective UFC-themed packaging that includes a short bio detailing the individual fighter, as well as the date of their Hall of Fame Induction.
The Hall of Fame Edition figures will be available only at specialty boutiques and select online retailers around the world. For more information go to round5.com.
