In the runup to London 2012 expect to see more and more merchandise coming onto the market.
Corgi have a collection of 30 figures that they’re making available at the rate of 2 per month
They’re priced at around 20 pounds sterling each, which is either very little or a lot!
Here’s some more of the official blurb:
This collection of die-cast figurines is based on the official London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic pictograms which represent the sporting disciplines at the Games. These models are perfect to mark this historical event and we hope that this collection will become a lasting legacy of a monumental moment in sporting history.
There are thirty hand-finished figurines in the collection each of which has been designed by Corgi in the UK. Each figurine is up to 5cm tall and is presented on a shard shaped base of between 9cm and 11cm with a 3-D Olympic or Paralympic London 2012 emblem cast in the front of the base.
Figurines are supplied in an innovative presentation box. On sliding open the box the mounted figurine is displayed – simultaneously the individually numbered Limited Edition certificate is revealed on the other side of the box. Only 5,000 of each figurine will be produced. Every box features product images and specific facts associated with the sport the Pictogram depicts.
