Markham, ON – Round 5 President Damon Lau officially announces the release of the Georges “Rush”

St-Pierre UFC Fan Expo Toronto 2011 Exclusive figure and gives details on how Round 5 collectors can

have their own likeness turned into a Round 5 figure. 

 

The limited edition GSP figure will only be available at the UFC Fan Expo in Toronto, and will feature GSP in

his black gi and signature headband he wore at "UFC 94: St-Pierre vs. Penn 2" where he defeated BJ

Penn via 4th round TKO to retain his welterweight crown. Also included in this release is a die cast replica

of the UFC title belt

 

“The biggest fight in UFC history is happening in Toronto, and as a Canadian company we felt that we had

to really give our hardcore collectors something incredible,” said Lau. “We don’t expect that these will be

available for more than a few hours, so if you want one, you should arrive early.”

 

Only 1000 units of the GSP Fan Expo Toronto Exclusive figure have been produced, the figure will retail for

$25.00 and can be purchased only at the Round 5 booth at the UFC Fan Expo in Toronto on April 29-30. 

 

Round 5 will also provide attendees of UFC Fan Expo Toronto with the unique opportunity to receive a one-off

Round 5 figure created in their own likeness.

 

“We will randomly attach “Golden Tickets” to the back of select GSP figures, these tickets will entitle the

purchaser to have their head scanned, and printed onto an existing Round 5 body,” Lau said. “These figures

will be official Round 5 products and will be one of a kind pieces.”

 

Round 5 will have a 3D imaging scanner at their booth. Five lucky collectors will win the opportunity to have

their heads scanned. The resulting unpainted heads will be attached to their choice of existing Round 5

bodies.
