Funko Toys CEO Brian Mariotti has been revealing some new toy lines coming from Funko in 2015 as part of his 12 Days of Christmas blog posts at the company’s website. The biggest news is after four decades someone is finally making a series of action figures for Jaws. So look for Brody, Hooper and Quint arriving just in time for the 40th anniversary of the film.
An equally big surprise is his news of two new Star Trek action figure toy lines, one for the original series and one for Star Trek: The Next Generation. Mariotti did not mention whether designs for any of the figures had yet been developed, or their release dates.
Other series getting the 1970s retro-action figure treatment will be Terminator 2, The Dark Crystal, and Gremlins, along with modern shows Breaking Bad and Boondock Saints. And Mariotti said he planned to release more TV shows and films slated for the ReAction line by Christmas. We’re hoping those lines might include Planet of the Apes, The Last Starfighter, Die Hard, Alien Nation, Blade Runner, They Live, or Big Trouble in Little China.
While you’re waiting on the rest of the news, Browncoat readers will be happy to know there is an exclusive Malcolm Reynolds action figure available in only limited stores, including here at Calendars.com. Check here for previously released Firefly ReAction figures offered by Funko.
