Round 5 President Damon Lau, announces the release of the â€œUltimate Collectorâ€ Series 8 featuring updated versions of some of the UFCâ€™s most popular fighters as well as all new characters hitting retail shelves this Christmas.
The â€œUltimate Collectorâ€ Series 8 is anchored by a Championship Edition Jon â€œBonesâ€ Jones commemorating his historic victory over Mauricio â€œShogunâ€ Rua at UFC 128, and a Championship Edition Georges “Rush” St-Pierre honoring GSPâ€™s victory over Matt Serra to regain his title at UFC 83.
Series 8 also includes a new version of former heavyweight titleholder Brock Lesnar, and Round 5 debut figures for reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo, and heavyweight contender Roy â€œBig Countryâ€ Nelson.
â€œThis Series has something for both our hardcore collectors as well as our more mainstream fans,â€ says Lau. â€œWeâ€™ve never included two Championship Editions in one Series before, but our fans requested these, and we were happy to oblige.â€
As with previous â€œUltimate Collectorâ€ Series releases, each figure in Series 8 arrives on shelves in protective UFC-themed packaging as well as a short bio detailing each fighter. “Ultimate Collector” Series 8 will be available in December at Walmart and Zellers in Canada and FYE in the United States.
