FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
HI-YO SILVER, AWAY!
Dynamic Forces Brings The Lone Ranger® to Life in New Collectible Line
Runnemede, NJ (December 22 2005) – The Lone Ranger Rides Again! Classic Media and Dynamic Forces, Inc. are proud to announce a new agreement that allows for the collectibles company to produce all-new LONE RANGER merchandise. As part of the deal, Dynamic Forces will produce resin collectibles, lithographs and a trading card series inspired by the heroic masked man.
“We’re planning on producing Lithos and Statues in the second half of the year, and releasing our first LONE RANGER TRADING CARD series towards the late summer, possibly on similar stock to the original trading cards of the ‘40’s,” said DF President Nick Barrucci. “I’m personally as excited and happy as a kid on Christmas morning to be able to work with Classic Media and The Lone Ranger!”
Since the debut of his pioneering radio show on WXYZ Detroit in 1933, The Lone Ranger has captured the hearts and imaginations of generations of loyal fans. With his faithful companion Tonto, his silver bullets and his unwavering code of honor, this American icon has become an international symbol of truth and justice.
The successful radio series, created by George W. Trendle and written by Fran Striker, ran for an amazing 2,956 episodes and inspired numerous comic books, two movie serials, books, a live action TV series (1949 – 1957) starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, as well as a Saturday morning animated series. The masked hero is set to ride onto the silver screen once again in 2007 with an all-new live action theatrical film.
