Company will produce line of collectibles, vehicles and more for Kung Fu Pork Choppers.

CraneKahn has announced the appointment of Wicked Cool Toys as master toy licensee for the smash hit Kung Fu Pork Choppers. CraneKahn has adapted hundreds of episodes of GG Bond, one of the top kid’s franchises in China, for a western audience, packaged under Kung Fu Pork Choppers’ brand name. The US broadcaster for Kung Fu Pork Choppers is expected to be announced later this year.

The Kung Fu Pork Choppers are a team of pigs-turned-superheroes who protect New Pork City from all forms of alien invasion. Children can join Hampton, Hamgelina, Glorious P.I.G. and the rest of the gang, as they take on any challenge.

Al Kahn, CraneKahn CEO, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Wicked Cool Toys, which has always had a sharp eye for selecting winning brands such as Pokémon and Cabbage Patch Kids, and we know with its innovative approach to toys and powerful distribution channels it will be best positioned to reach our desired audience of kids 4-8. There is nothing else out on the market like the Kung Fu Pork Choppers, and we are sure the originality and pure fun of this brand will endear it with kids in the US and around the world. These pigs go big.”

Michael Rinzler and Jeremy Padawer, co-presidents & partners at Wicked Cool Toys, commented: “Wicked Cool Toys is honored to partner with CraneKahn to bring the Kung Fu Pork Choppers to life!”
