Jakks Pacific is extending its line of Slugterra toys with a collection of action figures, vehicles, stretchy slug flyers and plush launching this autumn.

The international roll out will cover Western Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.

The latest range will be added to the company's existing portfolio of toys based on the popular children's animation, which is produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment and currently airs on Disney XD.

Juli Boylan, head of global consumer products at Nerd Corps Entertainment, said: "Jakks Pacific has done a great job tapping into the essence of what Slugterra is all about.

"Kids of all ages have a great emotional connection to the slugs, and the play pattern inherent in the show.

"We are thrilled to see the product line expanding and expect to see continued growth for the brand going into the fall and 2014."

Jakks plans to coordinate the worldwide distribution of the product line with the series launch in each market. 180 territories across the globe are already lined up to air the show.

Michael Bernstein, executive vice president, marketing, Jakks Pacific, said: "Excitement and sell through for our Slugterra product line has been exceptional.

"With a more robust product line out this fall, we hope to satisfy our slug slinging fans' voracious appetites by offering them more ways to immerse themselves in the magical world of Slugterra."
