Monty Python: The action figures

An American toy company has launched a new range of action figures based on Life Of Brian.

Sideshow Collectables has unveiled its dolls of Brian and his mother Mandy at the New York International Toy Fair yesterday.

Only 4,000 of the 12-inch high figures will be made, and will cost $40 (about £25). However, hey will not be released until October.

The figure based on Graham Chapman's Brian boasts "small cap, robe, sash, waist belt and pouch, sandaled feet, paint brush and pot", while Terry Jones's battleaxe Mandy wears a headscarf and robes.

Sideshow has also released a set of figures based on Bart, Homer, Marge and Maggie Simpson.
