Toymaker Mattel says they’ve reached a worldwide licensing agreement with seven-member K-pop boy band BTS to create a line of dolls, collectible figures, games and more. BTS played several sold-out concerts at Staples Center last summer.
The dolls of RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook will be fashioned in the looks from the group’s iconic and YouTube record-breaking “IDOL” music video, according to a statement from Mattel.
The first BTS toys are expected to hit stores around the world this summer.
