The Dark Tower action figures and collectables previewed

The merchandise will follow the release of the epic fantasy adaptation movie.

Diamond Select Toys has released official images for their toys and statues for Sony Picture's The Dark Tower movie, based on the fantasy novels by Stephen King.

The 7″ figures of The Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and The Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) will come with diorama backdrops and various accessories in addition to a pair of Gallery PVC figures.

The movie stars Idris Elba in the lead role of Roland, the Gunslinger, while Matthew McConaughey steps into the shoes of the villainous Man in Black.

Pitched by King, as an 'alternative' version of his eight book saga that first debuted in 1982, The Dark Tower is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, previously known for helming A Royal Affair.

The film hits movie theatres on August 4th, while it makes it's way to the UK for August 18th.
