Jakks Pacific is continuing to build up the Monsuno brand, with a range of new toys due to launch internationally this year based on the second series, Monsuno Combat Chaos.
The animated series will debut in the US later this year on Nicktoons and internationally on Nickelodeon channels and free to air networks.
Jakks' toy line will include a new battle action game, accompanying the Combat Chaos theme, plus new larger transforming action figures, cores, accessories and battle sets.
Meanwhile, Jakks Pacific has reported its Q4 and year-end results for 2012.
Net sales for the fourth quarter were $133.5 million (compared to $141.1 million in the comparable period in 2011). The net loss for Q4 was $119.5 million.
Net sales for the full year stood at $666.8 million, compared to $677.8 million in 2011. The reported net loss for the full year was $104.8 million.
"We are disappointed by our performance in the fourth quarter," said Stephen Berman, president and CEO at Jakks Pacific. "The difficult and challenging toy environment did not generate the sales that had been anticipated, and several of our key products did not achieve the sales levels that we had planned for, also resulting in licence royalty minimum guarantee shortfalls.
"However, we are optimistic for our future growth and profitability. We believe that our core business lead by our infant/pre-school, seasonal and Halloween segments, in conjunction with meaningful reductions in operating costs, will return the company to profitability in 2013."
