Flash Gordon 1980

Too much fun.  Yesterday we showed some previews of several new action figures being revealed by Funko at Toy Fair 2015 in New York City.  They’re all of the 3 3/4 retro Kenner-style, and we have another set of figures from the show but these are from toy company Bif Bang Pow!  This is the company that created The Twilight Zone retro action figures previewed here at borg.com earlier last week.

Those new figures hail from the 1980 fan favorite flick Flash Gordon.  The new line of figures includes nice sculpts of Sam Jones’s Flash, Timothy Dalton’s Prince Barin, Ornella Muti’s Princess Aura, Brian Blessed’s Prince Vultan, and Max Von Sydow’s Emperor Ming.  No Dale Arden figure has been revealed yet.

Admit it, you’re singing the Queen Flash Gordon theme now, right?

Keep an eye out for more buzz about Max Von Sydow later this year.  He’s expected to join the likes of classic thespians Peter Cushing, Sir Alec Guinness, and Sir Christopher Lee to be a key character in the Star Wars franchise when The Force Awakens opens at the end of the year.
