"EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT) today announced it has been named global toy partner for Paramount Pictures’ TOP GUN franchise, ahead of the highly-anticipated sequel, TOP GUN: MAVERICK, scheduled to debut in theaters in June 2020.

Mattel has the rights to toys across multiple categories, including die-cast vehicles and aircrafts, playsets, games and other toys. The new line will bring moments from both the classic film and the sequel to life, appealing to fans of all ages.

“We are thrilled to bring TOP GUN to life for both kids and their parents who undoubtedly fell in love with the franchise over thirty years ago,” said Janet Hsu, Chief Franchise Management Officer of Mattel. “Our design-led approach has allowed us to recreate the high-octane action from the movie with a line of toys that will impress fans of all ages.”

There was a diecast company, TSM Models, that made replicas of the F-14s in 1/72 and 1/200 scales from the classic Top Gun movie. I don’t have one and so can’t comment on the quality, but I suspect it’s somewhere between the quality of Witty Wings and the premium Century Wings models. Here’s a link to a reputable retailer that still has them in stock:
