In this special episode, Arnie and Marjorie look at all the new Star Wars toys coming from LEGO, Kotobukiya, Uncle Milton, and more!
Funko has announced that in addition to their Re-Action line of 3-3/4″ figures from properties like Alien, Firefly, Goonies, they have revealed they will also be debuting a 6″ “Legacy” scale (similar to Hasbro’s Black Series line) as well. Click on through for the announcement and look for the unveiling at Toy Fair in 2014.
Funko has also announced a new Star Wars BOXOS papercraft two-sided display featuring the Bespin Carbon Freezing Chamber and Gantry. Now before you dismiss this out of hand, the figures included with the display are about 4″ tall each, so you may be able to use it as an action figure display for Hasbro, LEGO or Kubrick figures (the last two being more appropriate stylistically). I plan on picking up a set when they are available to test out.
Our friends at MintInBox.net pass on word to us that an exclusive Funko Glow-In-The-Dark Darth Vader bobblehead will be available as a Paris Comics Expo in November. Click on through to check it out.
Our Toy Fair coverage continues today with the addition of photos to our Funko Gallery which features very cute POP! Bobbleheads and more!
