The Bone cousins, Fone, Phoney and Smiley and their fantastic hero’s journey offer the opportunity to complement their universe with branded vinyl figures.
 
“I’m looking forward to working with Cryptozoic,” said Jeff Smith, the creator of BONE, “I’m really a kid at heart and I love toys and figures. I already have a spot cleared out for this one right next to my computer!”

“The world of BONE is a perfect fit for a vinyl figure product line,” Jeff Parker, Cryptozoic Creative Director said. “We are excited to embark upon an adventure alongside Cartoon Books to bring it to life.”
BONE vinyl figure collectibles will be available for purchase online and in specialty stores worldwide starting Q4 of 2015.
