The website Action Figure Insider reports that Triad Toys, Inc. of San Jose, California, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. of Tarzana, California, have joined forces to bring the John Carter of Mars saga to yet another generation of fans. Here’s a piece of the press release from Triad Toys:

“Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Mars Saga is hailed as one of the most influential works to define modern sci-fi and fantasy literature. Written almost a century ago, the epic 11 volume series chronicling John Carter’s adventures have thrilled many, many generations of readers. Triad Toys is proud to announce that it has entered into a two-year licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. to produce a range of collectibles, including 12-inch action figures and statues of all the central characters from the beloved novels. The collectibles will consist of both modernized concepts developed by Triad Toys as well as the classic Burroughs vision of the Mars saga with the first series of figures releasing early 2009.”
