Yes. Especially some ones that say lines like a Yogurt saying "May the Schwartz be with you!" and Dark Helmet saying "Come on man!".

Unfortunately when they made the movie... part of the contract was that there wouldn’t be merchandise. I really wish they would rethink that though!!

If we got only 2 pops to start, what would the pair be? Lone starr and barf? Lone starr and Darth Helmet? Princess and Dot could be a possibility.

Another movie where I can picture the pops, yet there are none. Dark Helmet is the equivalent of a life size Pop that I assumed he had one.

I was just thinking that a Dark Helmet Pop would look similar to a Darth Vader Pop, since Pops have huge heads to begin with. Am I wrong on this? I admit it's been a while since I've seen Spaceballs, so I don't recall what would distinguish the two characters in Pop form.

It would some subtle differences, but for the most part it would be pretty close. I guess they could try making it a bit more oversized though?

As much as I enjoyed the movie these would warm shelves from coast to coast if they made em...it was a marginally successful B movie and not one of Mel Brooks better parodies...sometimes I think I'd rather just see certain things in pop form without them making the actual figures

I’m surprised these haven’t been made. John Candy played Barf so I wonder if that will pose an issue considering he is no longer with us. :-k

It's not because of John Candy (he did have a pop for Cool Runnings). See my post on page one of this thread for a full explanation, but bottom line is that there was an agreement between George Lucas and Mel Brooks to not have merchandise for the movie beyond an eventual home video release before the film was even made. So, Spaceballs Pop!s won't ever be happening (though I would really love to one day be proven wrong on that statement).

That makes a lot of sense about merchandise, makes me wonder how that negotiation went for the right to make such a close parody.

I am seriously surprised no one has gotten the license for this yet. I would pay big bucks for a Pizza the Hutt and Yogurt with all the Spaceballs merch, haha. I'll just join in on holding out hope that it gets made!

i've always heard it was pretty much just a handshake deal. George respected Mel and took him at his word. However, legally speaking there was nothing stopping Mel from making it anyway as parody is protected speech.

That's a valid point, I can see how well respected Mel is in the industry for all that he has done over his career. Suppose we just have to keep asking for these awesome potential pops.
