Funko releases first look at Big Trouble in Little China ReAction line

Big Trouble in Little China Rain Thunder Lightning

Last month the CEO for Funko released a hefty list of licenses that will be getting the retro-Kenner action figure treatment this year, as reported on here and here at  The licensed properties include the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Jaws, Terminator 2, Aliens, The Dark Crystal, E.T., the Extra-Terrestrial, Fight Club, Gremlins, Breaking Bad, The Fifth Element, V for Vendetta, Scarface, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Big Lebowski, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The A-Team, and The Munsters, among others.

For action figure collectors, one of the most requested films for the ReAction line, especially in light of last year’s release of Escape from New York figures, was that other John Carpenter film starring Kurt Russell, the cult classic Big Trouble in Little China. 

And Funko has just released final images of the figures and packaging for six figures from the film, and what great picks!  Best of all, 85-year-old, Minnesota-born, Golden Age of TV actor James Hong finally gets his own action figure, as Lo Pan!

You know Hong from his 400 on-screen appearances, including Magnum, P.I., Hawaii Five-O, The Bionic Woman, The X-Files, Charmed, Chuck, way back to Bonanza, Zorro, and even the original Dragnet, classic films Blade Runner, Chinatown, and The Sand Pebbles, and most recently the voice of Azmorigan in Star Wars Rebels.

Funko chose to make all three of The Three Storms–Thunder, Rain and Lightning, and the sculpts look great for this series.  Russell’s Jack Burton and Kim Cattrall’s Gracie Law also will be available.
