Renowned UFC figure-maker Round 5 has a surprise for those MMA fans attending the UFC Fan Expo in conjunction with UFC 118 later this month in Boston: A sneak peek at the company’s Ultimate Collector Series 4 line.

Due out in time for the 2010 holiday shopping season, the new lineup incorporates one legendary fighter (UFC Hall of Famer Royce Gracie), two current champions (heavyweight Brock Lesnar, light heavyweight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua), one former champion (light heavyweight Quinton “Rampage” Jackson), one up-and-comer (heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez) and two larger-than-life UFC personalities (president Dana White and “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” Bruce Buffer).

“We are pleased to be introducing our latest series of new figurines to fans at UFC Fan Expo,” said Damon Lau, Round 5 president and co-founder. “There are some completely new athletes, including Royce Gracie and Cain Velasquez, and our first ‘Ultimate Collector’ non-fighters in Dana White and Bruce Buffer.”

Round 5 officials also will be offering Expo-exclusive “3-packs” that include two fighters and Buffer as well as showcasing prototypes of the company’s new Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell “Live” figures.

The UFC Fan Expo will be held August 27-28 in Boston’s John B. Hynes Convention Center.
