Titan Entertainment, makers of the awesome Doctor Who vinyl figures have announced a deal with Apple Corps Ltd to produce TITANS vinyl collectibles based on the The Beatles’ trippy cartoon Yellow Submarine. The line will launch in Q4 of this year in the UK, US, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand with a wave of 3″ blind boxed vinyl collectibles. This first wave will include the Fab Four (in all their animated glory), their Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band alter egos, the music-hating Chief Blue Meanie and the super-iconic Yellow Submarine itself – the initial twelve-character set even includes Old Fred and Jeremy Hillary Boob PhD. There will be two chase figures for die hards to hunt for. More waves will follow in 2015, including 6.5″ vinyls of the Beatles and an 8″ Yellow Submarine.
Andrew Sumner, director of Titan Merchandise, said: “As a kid growing up in the Liverpool suburbs, The Beatles were my absolute heroes – and they still are. Their contribution to global culture is unparalleled. I’ll never forget the first time I watched Yellow Submarine – it blew my mind. And forty-six years later, it still blows my mind! It’s my pleasure and privilege to rock back to Pepperland with our unique Yellow Submarine TITANS collectibles. I couldn’t feel more proud – and flat-out excited – to be launching this range.”
