Cartoon Network might have ordered a new season as Ben 10 2016 is set to return, based on recent reports revealing that the popular American animated series is set to premiere in UK televisions later this year. Along with the news is the apparent excitement of toy makers with the upcoming Ben 10 series. News reports say that Ben 10 toys will arrive on stands on the first quarter of 2017, shortly after it premieres in the UK.
According to the Cartoon Network, Playmates Toys has been their partner in creating Ben 10 merchandise and the recent review and talk about the upcoming Ben 10 series in the UK has also been encouraging. In an interview with Johanne Broadfield, Cartoon Network?s VP, EMEA, she said ?Ben 10 is one of the brands that I?d say the toy retailers are most excited about from us. It was a phenomenon in the toy space the first time around so it?s tricky to predict how it?ll fare this time. But the response from boys to the content and from the industry to the toy line that we?ve developed with Playmates Toys is very encouraging. Everyone has welcomed us doing this and we?re very excited about it.?
She also revealed that in 2008, the Ben 10 toys had been one of the most popular and in demand toys in stores and she believes that with the new technology now, several variants of Ben 10 toys and what they?re capable of doing can be created by their approved toymakers. We?ll have to see how these advance Ben 10 2016 toys will fare.
She also added ?We?re not launching the toys until A/W 2017 so there?s a bit of a wait because we want to get the content out there and syndicate it where we need to.?
