The Dark Crystal figure collection

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.

I finally received some of my pre-ordered DC figures. Aughra and Chamberlain. The sculpt on these in incredible. Much more realistic and detailed than I imagined. The Skeksis does seem slightly undersized, but no big deal.

As others have stated, the plastic blisters on all 4 of mine (I got two of each) were not attached to the card backs. I wanted to keep a set MOC, but obviously not possible. I was just curious if this was an issue that is being addressed? I can't see these selling at an outlet such as TRU when they are falling off the cards. That being said, I still love them and am very thankful to be getting them. I will hopefully receive the rest soon.

Yes, the bubbles falling off has been a problem at the factory level on occasion. We've taken steps to ensure this doesn't happen so often in the future. So sorry that this happened to your set. I totally feel your frustration!

This is a problem that is not just an issue with Funko. I purchased 2 Duke Nukems with similar issues. I am not sure what stage of the packaging process causes it, but I do see the problem showing up even at retail stores.

Hello Reis, I know you've stated that you'd share any news on the garthim once you have any, but just for our peace of mind, the figure is still getting distribution right? Or is there any chance we won't be seeing these at retail at all?

Hello Mr. Reis,

I have a similar question as above. Just want to know that the Garthim is still going to come out in retail in the near future, right?

Since the Garthim is going to TRU like the previous set, are they interested in the complete boxed set with Kira? Seems like it would be a big selling point... If not, is the MSRP going to drop from the previous sets price?

No, there will not be a re-release of the Garthim/Kira 2-pack. They were only interested in the single pack Garthim, and yes, I do believe the price will be lower, but I'm not sure what that price is at the moment.

Are there any plans for a wave 2?
More Skeksis and Mystics?
Zombie Slave Kira?
Podpeople?
Ice Armor Jen? (with color change action!)

..ok, maybe not that last one

Nice to hear! I was initially upset to hear no winged Kira would be included, but then I realized it's not that big of a deal to me. Maybe it is to some of you, but just my opinion. It is only seen briefly, and I probably wouldn't display her with the wings open anyway. As for the variant Fizzgig, I could probably sculpt my own little closed mouth version. He is such a simple design.

That being said, would it be legally ok to produce and sell a pair of similar style wings, maybe 3D printed in translucent plastic, that would fit onto the figure? I am not capable of this, but maybe someone is.

No plans for a wave 2. Funko will no longer be producing any more ReAction figures.

I bought a Garthim, despite not having any previous Dark Crystal figures. Loved the movie as a kid and admittedly these big, bad beetles were always my fav.

I live in New York City and in my Tri-State area, in all Toys 'R' Us I have seen the strider packs except one store in the Bronx(Sold Out). So you should check your local Toys 'R' Us.

They are available now on the TRU website. I just bought two, so they ship for free.

Thanks! I'll check my local stores. it doesn't seem to show up on their website. Does anyone have a way to search for it on the TRU site, or maybe a UPC so I can call to check?

I tried ordering online and it's saying that ship to home is not available ?? It has to be an in-store pick up. I wouldn't mind but there's no TRU around me.

EDIT: Looks like its working now, just ordered Garthim, Jen and Kira. They don't have the rest of the figures online yet. :-&

EDIT #2: I ordered Jen, Kira and Garthim. I checked out through PayPal, I looked at my charges today and saw was not charged the full amount. I went back on TRU website and Garthim is back to saying its an in-store item only, not available for online ordering. The charge has not cleared my bank yet.
WHAT IS UP??!! Will probably need call TRU in the morning. ](*,)

Got my Garthim at a local TRU & now my collection (both Pop & ReAction) is complete. Such an awesome figure. I can't believe it took about 30 years for all these figures to finally be released. For ReAction figures, this whole collection is far beyond ReAction quality, they are really beautiful figures. Nena did an amazing job on these. Love 'em!!!

I am happy to report that I received Jen, Kira and the The Garthim in the mail. On my end though the Toys R Us website still says the Garthim is not available to order online. The first time I tried it wouldn't let me check out without specifying a store to pick it up at. A few days later it was available for shipping and I ordered immediately, and it was delivered, but on the website it's now back to an in-store pick up only. They were shipped out separately which is why the first charge was off and I didn't think I was getting the Garthim.

These figures are really amazing! I am very happy with Funko's work, and that they were able to make this happen at all! It's more than I could have expected. Great job =D>

On a side-note about the glue and cardbacks, there was evidence that my plastic bubbles were reattached to the card. The glue they used to reattach it was Very sticky and gummy, so you might want to be careful when opening. Kira's crystal piece and Jen's base had some of the glue on it but it's tacky and was able to come off. My Kira figure was even on the card with the bubble upside-down :-s

It's nice to see TRU made an effort to fix the detached bubbles, that's more than Funko appears to be doing. I can only imagine how many DC figures were returned and then thrown away because of this issue, makes me a bit sad honestly. I'm happy to have them loose at least though. Does anyone know if the license covers Super7 producing more characters?

So it looks like you can get Garthim in Phoenix, but not in Tucson. I wish our stores would get him or I wonder if they will get it from Phoenix to send to Tucson?
