Thanks to everyone who visited us this past weekend at PowerCon 2022, it was a blast meeting many of you. It's amazing to see a community changing and growing. After a couple of years of solitude it's great to feel normal again and connect with others.
People don't normally mix playtime with politics, but Figures Toy Company's Presidential Series has been a big hit for collectors who want to add some historical faces to their toy shelf. FTC has once again gone through the history of the White House and pulled another one of America's leaders for insertion in the Presidential toy line, and it's none other than Thomas Jefferson!
 
Just like previous President figures, FTC's Thomas Jefferson will be made in two different styles (one based on a look from 1800, the other based on a look from 1819). The addition of Jefferson marks the further expansion of the series, which Figures Toy Company has said that they plan on including every President who ever served their country in it!
 
Thomas Jefferson's retro figures will begin shipping next month, along with other new items that are slated to be added to FTC's inventory as part of their September delivery! Keep an eye on Figures Toy Company's socials for updates on all of the new products they expect to be in stock, plus daily updates and product features on lines like their DC Comics Retro Universe, the Scooby-Doo series, and The Three Stooges retro figures! You'll find all of these products on http://www.figurestoycompany.com just waiting to be ordered, and you'll find more #MMFTCNEWS here again next week!
