Kenner Announces Groo Action Figures



Kenner, manufacturer of the highly successful Star Wars action figure 
line, has announced a new line based on the comic book Groo the 
Wanderer.  The figures will be released in two series.  The first 
series is due out in June 1999 and will feature the following fully 
poseable characters:  Groo, Rufferto, Chakaal, Sage, and Minstrel.  The 
Groo action figure will be five inches tall with removable swords.  The 
characters in the second series have not been announced yet, but are 
scheduled for release in December 1999.  Also planned for December 
production is a medieval castle set for the Groo action figures.  The  
action figures will be packaged on cards with unique artwork for each 
character by Groo ilustrator Sergio Aragones.  To publicize the new 
line, Kenner will give away a special, limited edition Groo action 
figure t-shirt designed by Aragones to the first 500 customers to 
access the Groo section on Kenner's web site.  The web address is:
