DARK HORSE DELUXE OFFERS UP A NEW TWIST ON A CLASSIC TOY WITH AN ALL-NEW MYSTERY-BOX ASSORTMENT TO DEBUT AT TOY FAIR!

MILWAUKIE, OR, February 9, 2012 - The Good Luck Trolls became one of America's biggest toy fads in the early 1960s, and again in revivals over the years.

History repeats itself like never before in 2012, when Dark Horse Deluxe offers up these beloved and timeless figures in various iterations!

Now Dam Things has licensed to Dark Horse the right to issue the Good Luck Trolls in the ever-popular "mystery box" style assortment, marking the first new troll products in the US in many years.
