Your ReAction Questions Answered Here!

Let's talk about Funko and Super 7's great line of ReAction and Legacy action figures. They don't bobble or pop, but they thrill in their own fun way.

With the announcement of the Breaking Bad Reaction figures is there anyway possible we can get an RV to go with Walt and Jesse? It would make a great first vehicle :) or possible exclusive.

Would it be possible to have pre cut cardboard playsets like the Star Trek bridge for the upcoming figures?
Something similar to the old Palitoy sets would be awesome.
Maybe Doc Brown's lab, Dracula's castle, Frankenstein's lab, the mummy's tomb, etc.
I understand that full plastic playsets would be very costly, but I think that sturdy cardboard could be pretty cool and fit with the retro style.

Really excited about Breaking Bad and Jaws receiving the Reaction treatment! Quint and Hank Schrader are my top wants. Can you say when the lineups will be shown and an estimated release date?

I'd rather keep this thread about questions on the current releases or future ones that have been announced. Thanks!


So now that there have some lines that have been announced for next year, can you elaborate on figure selection? Are you going to announce them all at once like you did last year or do you plan on announcing them a little before they are released so we get a little bit at a time throughout the year?

btw, great selection so far I'm really looking forward to some of these :) Are you going to have more detail in the face sculpts for the humans?


I can't go into details yet, since we're saving a lot of the reveals for Toy Fair, but I will say this; Brian is just scratching the surface. You all have no idea what you're in for! ;)

And yes, we're going into much more detail on the faces (actually, more detail overall).

We've been talking vehicles, but nothing solid in the plans yet.

There have been some conversations about playsets, and we've taken a close look at the vintage Palitoy chipboard Deathstar set. We don't have anything official happening, but we're very interested in that style.

You mentioned previously that Oogie Boogie would be shrunken down to fit on the standard card back. Would that be the case for Bruce the shark in the Jaws line?

I realize this might fall into the can't go into specifics thing, but will there be human characters in the Gremlins line? Always hated how the previous 6" Gremlins toys were never in scale with other 6" figures.

I'm curious about this as well.

On a size note, (and if you can't discuss it, I understand) but what's the rough size going to be for the Gremlins? Are we looking at Sam from Trick R Treat sized or much smaller so they're in scale with human figures.

It's going to be a bit tough to swallow 10 bucks for a super tiny Gizmo unless he's packed in with a second figure or some awesome accessories.

Overall though, I'm super excited. As always, keep up the great work!

A Gremlins line! Woo hoo! Would be a great time to double dip and get Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet too! That's what I find most appealing about the Reaction line.

We're looking very closely at the original unreleased figures and packaging and are going to try and stay as true to that as possible, while still making some improvements here and there.I'm a massive Dark Crystal fan, so this line is a dream come true for me, so don't worry, we'll make sure that the Dark Crystal fans love them!

With the little critters from Gremlins, we'll have to fudge the sizing a bit. If we made Gizmo his actual size in this scale, he'd be smaller than a dime. But they'll still feel small and come with a bunch of cool stuff to make the $10 worth it.

I'm so excited by the recent announcement of Breaking Bad and Gremlins but mostly Dark Crystal. Seriously, I grew up on that movie. Will there be a Fizzgig to go with Kira by any chance? Can't wait to see how they look-especially if you end up making doing some of the more oddly shaped characters like the Mystics and Skeksis.
Crossing my fingers for some Labyrinth action too! (Pretty sure I'd cry from joy if I could ever get a Ludo action figure) Would love to see any other additional Jim Henson characters-in particular the not heavily merchandised enough non-Muppet characters.

I simply cannot wait for further reveals and, of course, pics at Toy Fair . Make no mistake when i say that ReAction was the biggest collecting highlight of mine for 2014. You guys nailed so much good stuff, and in doing so,brought back a long postponed desire to recollect vintage Kenner Star Wars along the way. That is a true testament to this line and the fine work you guys are doing. Ive still got some wishlist stuff i hope you get to eventually,but im definitely satisfied with what you have done. Classic Trek alone has got me excited for 2015.......Jaws,Gremlins,Dark Crystal and T2 are icing on the cake. So, i await the next round of announcements with some serious optimism

With this news, I cannot wait for the next announcement.... fingers crossed during these next 12 of xmas there will be another bit of ReAction goodness! Maybe Aliens? Bond? One can wish!

This is a great thread Reis; love the interaction. Not a collector of this style of toys, but I try to have a little something of every Funko category. Firefly almost got me, but Dark Crystal has solidified a place on the shelf for the ReAction line. I never would have expected these :cheers:

Hi all, I'm new to the board, so please forgive me if my question has been covered before...

Why are all of the reaction figures labeled as an "adult collectable-not a toy"? I understand that the subject matter on some of the lines are definitely not for children, but some could be. I only ask because my son absolutely adores some of the lines and loves to play with them....should I be worried that maybe there is materials in the figures that are unsafe for children, or are there choking hazards concerning the accessories? Thanks for having and open forum like this and taking the time to answer our questions!

Some of it is subject matter, or the ratings of the movies, but most of it boils down to either the contracts we have with the license or standards we have to meet for proper distribution. However, with any toy of this type and size, no matter what company it comes from, you should be cognizant of the small parts choking hazard, especially with the accessories. The materials (paint and plastic) should be perfectly safe.

I know it's been asked before, but I still see people on other message boards I frequent asking the same question about human characters likenesses. I haven't really had a problem with "soft" likeness sculpts on any of the lines yet. I can see Schwartzeneger's facial features in the Terminator sculpt, especially the one with sunglasses! Will the Star Trek figures, who's faces have been out there for 50 years now go for more than just a passing resemblance? I am finding that might be a deal breaker for some if these lean to softer likeness sculpts. I'm also hoping that Mulder and Scully from the X-Files will bear striking resemblance to the actors.

I also have a question about some of these figures coming apart at the torso seam, is there anything that can be done at the factory level that could prohibit this? I love all the effort you guys are putting into this line, Reis. I don't want to come off as a complainer. Lol

ALL likenesses will be better going forward.

Yeah, we've had some QC issues with our older factory. Our new factory has it dialed in.

If you can say are we going to get releases all year long or are they all going to be pushed to the 4th quarter again like this year?
Okay, if you want to add glitter to that glue you're sniffing, that's fine, but don't dump your whackadoo all over us. We'd rather not step in it.

That's too bad, I really thought that the NBX figures were brilliant and looked great in ReAction styling. I was really hoping you would end up going deeper into animated/anime lines. I do hope you decide against this and do at least one or two animated lines a year.

They'll all be spread out over the year. Last year's releases came out all at once, because we needed most of the year to design them first. Now we have a jump on the upcoming releases.

That's too bad, I really thought that the NBX figures were brilliant and looked great in ReAction styling. I was really hoping you would end up going deeper into animated/anime lines. I do hope you decide against this and do at least one or two animated lines a year.


I think an animated property that would make sense for Reaction would be the 80s Dungeons and Dragons cartoon.
