Last week we reported on Funko CEO Brian Mariotti’s “12 Days of Christmas” daily blog posts revealing the company’s new product offerings for 2015. This included the increasingly successful Kenner-inspired, ReAction retro action figure line, which has spread like wildfire now that the various lines are hitting the masses thanks to Barnes & Nobles carrying the products in stores. Mariotti revealed last week that 2015 will see new action figure series for the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Jaws, Terminator 2, The Dark Crystal, Gremlins, Breaking Bad, and Boondock Saints.
Today Mariotti revealed the rest of the licensed properties that will be turned into carded 3 3/4 inch action figures by the end of next year. As we had hoped, one of those properties is John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China. But now we know of twelve others.
So what are the rest? Drumroll, please…
The Fifth Element… Korben Dallas! Leeloo! Zorg!
V for Vendetta and Scarface!
Fast Times at Ridgemont High action figures? Jeff Spicoli and Mr. Hand? A Phoebe Cates action figure from Fast Times and Gremlins?
The Big Lebowski and Rocky Horror!
Finally some decent E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial action figures. The original line was cheap–even with the lack of detail that is part of the retro Kenner look, anything will be better than those.
Brad Pitt will get his own action figure with the new Fight Club line.
And classics, too…
The A-Team! Face, Murdock, B.A., and Hannibal–another series that had its own early line that could use an update.
And… The Munsters! These will go nicely with the previously released horror line and Universal Monsters line of figures.
And ReAction is offering its first current movie figures–from Tomorrowland!
Finally, the second Alien movie, Aliens will add to the current universe of xenomorphs.
Keep checking back. We’ll provide updates as packaging and sculpts are released.
