Sony Pictures Consumer Products has tapped Chronicle Collectables to launch a new line of collectables inspired by the popular TV and book series, Outlander. The range was unveiled to fans and industry folk at this year’s New York Toy Fair, before landing in stores this September.
The Outlander collection includes a series of holiday ornaments featuring the show’s main characters with symbols and crests. For fans of both the TV and book series, Chronicle will be offering a pair of Outlander bookends which depict Jamie and Claire, each on either side of one of the stones at Craigh Na Dun.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to create our very special Outlander collection. Being huge fans of the show ourselves and romantics at heart, we wanted to explore Outlander in a way that feels achingly similar to when Claire is reminiscing about her time in Scotland with her lost love, Jamie,” said Jared Chapman, creative director, Chronicle Collectables.
“I think we can all relate to Claire when she visits a place and feels those overwhelmingly powerful emotions that come roaring back. Hers are just magnified on a completely different level with the whole centuries of time factoring in. So, as we’ve been watching Outlander, we’ve been looking for iconic things that trigger those special memories.”
Jamie Stevens, EVP of worldwide consumer products, Sony Pictures Consumer Products, added: “Chronicle Collectibles is known for the care and attention they take in the creation of each and every product they offer.
“We are confident that Outlander fans will fall in love with Chronicle’s debut line of products as collectibles that can be cherished for years to come.”
It was six years ago that Chronicle Collectibles set out on its mission to bring pop culture iconography into the homes of fans and collectors around the world.
Now, the artists at Chronicle are preparing a range of collectables for fans of the hit Starz drama, Outlander. The Outlander television series, executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, Maril Davis, Matthew B. Roberts, Toni Graphia, Andy Harries and Jim Kohlberg, is inspired by Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series that has sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, with all the books gracing the New York Times best-seller list.
The Outlander television series follows the time-traveling adventures of Claire Randall, a WWII field nurse who finds herself transported to the 18th century where she meets James Fraser, a Scottish nobleman and Jacobite rebel.
