RONNIE JAMES DIO Toy Line In Development

Claude Flowers of is reporting that a line of toys featuring legendary heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio is currently "in development," according to his record company, Sanctuary Records. "No word yet on who will be releasing the line, or which characters will be featured, but [Dio] himself is a legendary showman whose three-fingered 'Dio sign' salute is a hard rock mainstay," Flowers writes.

"Another likely subject is Dio's horned mascot, Murray, who appeared on the cover of best-selling albums like 'Holy Diver' and 'The Last In Line', as well as the recent career retrospective 'Stand Up and Shout'. If the figure assortment is to be definitive, it should also include the characters from Dio's science fiction fantasy CD, 'Magica', which traces an epic battle between good and evil."
