William Tell International Inc., a U.S.-based supplier of collectibles, has been named the exclusive North American distributor for German figure manufacturer Blitz 72.

“We are thrilled to bring this line of World War II figures to market,” said Rick Apple, chief executive of William Tell. “Thousands of North American collectors have purchased tens of thousands of 1:72 WWII armor models, and now their collections can be brought to life in a whole new way. And because Blitz 72 figures are pre-painted, they’re as easy to set up and display as the models they’re designed to accompany!”

The initial Blitz 72 lineup includes three six-piece sets of German soldiers: an “Armored Vehicle Crew with Support Infantry,” a “Tank Crew” and a set of “Infantrymen.” Each set carries a suggested retail price of $17.95.

Dealers wishing to carry Blitz 72 figures may contact William Tell International to place orders beginning today. Deliveries are expected to begin in early September.
