Fox Sports and Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising are putting the finishing touches on an all-new Fox Sports robot action figure, which will be introduced by way of an on-air ‘Name the Robot’ contest this month during the network’s NFL coverage.
Through partner Action Heads, the popular football broadcast mascot has been transformed into a high-quality, 10-inch PVC poseable action figure. The new toy was designed to appeal to young boys and will be available online through Foxsports.com beginning November 15 and through select bricks-and-mortar retailers on December 1.
Contest participants must be 14 and up and can submit their names through the www.foxrobot.com website.
