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.

Funko figure called Son of Zorn is 5inch scale, so the same scale of the old Masters of the Universe figures of the 80s. I will not want Conan the Barbarian in that scale or look. Conan the Barbarian should get the 9POA treatment and detailed as the GOT figures of the 3 3/4 inch figures.

Is this figure in the same scale as the Masters of the Universe figures in the 80s? If not is it in 3 3/4" scale? Is this a hint of what a Funko Reaction Conan might have looked like? If this is in the same scale as old Heman is there a chance for more figures in this scale and format in the future? I throw that name Conan out there again because just like crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you and hearing the lamentation of the women are all good....a Conan figure would be even better!


Zorn is exactly the same scale as the old MOTU/Remco figures. And yes, I'm hoping to get many other figures made in this style!

If you really want Conan figures made in this style, gather your fellow barbarians and make your voices heard! I'm trying really hard to make this a reality!

While this is also a possibility, there are no plans for it at the moment.

Sound great that is a possibility. If FUNKO was going to do a ReAction Conan the Barbarian figure 3.75 inch before passing it to Super 7, why can FUNKO just pick up it's original plan for Conan and make him with the 9POA action figure line?

Reis have you ever checked out the Realm of the Underworld figures? I think the company that makes these is Zoloworld. I have a few and it's a line as near and dear to my heart as Reaction figures. Masters of the Universe and Remco inspired action figures is an area I think Funko will really Pop in! (Pun unintended but really fitting in this case!)

Conan the Barbarian is a MUST in the MOTU/Son of Zorn 5" figure scale style! I was excited about the Conan ReAction, but Conan in vintage He-Man figure 5" style would be WAY cooler. What God must we please?

They did do a line of Conan figures but they weren't based on the 1982 movie. In fact, the only thing "Conan" about them was the name on the backing cards.

We had a chance to do Jurassic Park but passed on it. They've been done already and quite recently. I'm still seeing JP toys peg-warming at TRU. I just don't think that it maintained a high enough level of cultural longevity to warrant retro-style figures.



So after the success of Jurassic World, is this still the position of Funko regarding Reaction figures?

Well, we aren't making any ReAction figures going forward, so this for sure won't be happening.

Great, thanks!

Is there any change at all to the single pack Garthim vs the 2-pack NYCC one, aside from the winged Kira? Like color?

May we see a pic of it if possible please?

Any chance we might get to see a "what might have been" posting? I would love to see some of what was planed and mocked up. Like the Addams Family stuff. Any chance of that?

I've only ever been an extremely casual collector of ReAction figures, but my best friend is a huge fan. I was able to get him exclusives from SDCC and NYCC after the past few years and I know how much he values having those pieces in his collection. Though I'm saddened to see Funko moving on from these, I've had the pleasure of seeing a ton of Super 7s other items at Cons in the past and have no doubt they ar ethe perfect company to take over work on these. Thank you, Reis and everyone else at Funko that helped to make these a reality, to begin with, and give all of us nostalgic nerds a wonderful revisit to our Kenner filled childhoods.

Most of that stuff never even made it to concept stage. Even if it had, I think it would be unwise to post stuff that never got made because the licensors may not want that out there. And people sometimes tend to see that stuff without reading everything and just assume it's still getting made, which causes headaches.

I've heard some retailers are returning them because of the cardbacks falling off, which is resulting in a reduced supply. Not to mention the collectors that buy them online and then return them when they arrive uncarded. Is Funko going to provide replacements that wont fall off or is this it?

Sorry, not my department. But my advice to you is to just return them from where you bought them, or hopefully get an exchange. We've been trying to deal with this bubble issue with our factory and hopefully have things fixed going forward. I know it's a pain! But we're trying to make things better!

Unfortunately, we are no longer producing ReAction figures, so we won't be continuing the NBX line. I know, it sucks! But the timing of everything just happened to land where it did. I suppose that Super7 could try to obtain the license and continue them, but I can't speak for them.
