From Funko:Funko has had a lot of fun/success with their ReAction figures, which ape old Kenner Star Wars-era toys, right down to the 5-points of articulation and goofy faces. I love that style of fig, so there's a few here that will be hard to resist.
Most of the main crew from the original cast are here, plus an Orion slave girl and a GORN!
I'm hoping this is just the first wave, but they have Dallas, two LeeLoos, Zorg, Ruby, and a Mangalore warrior, so that's a more than decent start. Now we just need some SPACESHIPS!
UPDATE: Head over to Cool Toy Review for a high-res gallery of all the new ReAction figures. More series are featured, including Breaking Bad, Scarface, Taxi Driver, The Karate Kid, Jaws, Terminator 2, Gremlins, Tomorrowland, The Flash, and Big Trouble in Little China.
Mix and match for maximum fun-tizing!
Here's--literally--the most space opera toy ever going octave-for-octave with Gracie the lawyer in a interstellar rendition of The Mikado:
A tale of two tough guy taxi drivers: Korben Dallas vs. Travis Bickle! "You talkin' to me?" "Negative, I am a meat popsickle."
You've long wondered who would win in winner-takes-all melee between Jack Burton and a Gorn. Talk about shaking the pillars of Heaven!
And then there's Tiny Robert Shaw:
Seriously, just throw Darth Vader in the garbage because the biggest badass in cinema just got made into an action figure.
"Did you say you fell into lava? I'm sorry, I survived the @#$!ing sinking of the Indianapolis!"
Later, after the boat is made even smaller by Bruce, Tiny Roy Scheider leaves to work with dolphins.
From: Bif Bang PowFlash AAAH!
This came out of NOWHERE. Flash Gordon figures that can now fight alongside your old Star Wars figs: Flash, Vultan, Barin, Ming, Aura (no Dale or Zarkov yet). Here's hoping we get a rocket cycle too. I'd also like a Klytus and a few of those hose-nose troopers.
From Mezco Toyz:And then, there was THIS announcement from Mezco on Twitter:
“@R2Going: Saw you have the license for Thundarr the Barbarian. Any hints at what mezco plans for this license?” MT: ONE:12 Collective figsTHUNDARR THE BARBARIAN FIGURES!! A DOZEN CHARACTERS!!!

Seriously 2015, why do you hate my wallet so?
From Warpo:UPDATE: Warpo Toys has teased a mega huge Cthulhu monster that seems to rival the old Star Wars Rancor toy in scale. I hope you're sitting down for this:
Imagine how that will look on your shelf as it battles for cosmic supremacy amidst the space opera singers, Starfleet officers, and diving hawkmen! The 12" figure will retail for $99. It's highly likely he'll be in limited quantities.
