Napoleon Dynamite: Action Figures Speak Louder Than Words

TEMPE, Ariz. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re a fan of the movie Napoleon Dynamite, there’s something new to add to your collection of bo staffs and nunchucks.

A line of action figures based on characters from the movie will be marketed by McFarlane Toys and Fox Licensing and Merchandising.

Corrinne Robinson, spokeswoman for McFarlane Toys, says the featured characters, which include Napoleon, Pedro, and Kip, are nothing to say “GOSH” at.

Though the poses have yet to be determined, Robinson says that the owner of the toy company likes to make the figurines “as detailed as possible,” right down to facial features like glasses or cheesy mustaches.

The Napoleon action figure will feature the trademark blond afro and moon boots that actor Jon Heder sported in the movie.

The new line of “sweet” action figures will be hitting U.S. store shelves in the fall.
