Son of Zorn Action Figures Announced!

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.

Son of Zorn Action Figures Announced!

Postby ReisOBrien » Fri Dec 09, 2016 12:37 pm

I'm super stoked that the Son of Zorn action figures are finally announced!

This is a new style for Funko Action Figures that pays homage to the classic fantasy toy lines of the 80s, such as Masters of the Universe and the multitude of Remco figures.

Personally, I'd love to see this become an ongoing format. If it did, what licenses would you like to see run through the 80s fantasy filter? GO!

Conan the Barbarian seems like an obvious fit!

How great would Dutch from Predator look this way as well?!

I guess i'm just an Arnold fan.. haha.

Just have to say that I love the MotU throwback style on these, even though I don't watch this particular show. Unless you pick the most masculine and muscle-bound characters from different franchises (like Scott's Predator suggestion) I think the only way you could really go with this format would be ironic/novelty versions of characters?

I forgot to add Game of Thrones to my list! I think also that Harry Potter could work and Universal Classic Monsters! Oh and Planet of the Apes!

Got my Son of Zorn figure from Entertainment Earth and I love it. Gotta say the balding pattern was a delightful surprise! Lol I sure hope we get some Conan the Barbarian figures in this format announced at Toy Fair next month! I do believe this format could be utilized for more than just overly muscular fantasy character types. I can't wait until they drop a female character into this format too. Evil Lynn, Teela and Sorceress were all great!

I'd love to see the 80's Lou Ferigno version of Hercules in this form of action figure. A Sybil Danning figure would also be an added bonus!

wish they came out the same time as the pops! I gave jason sudeikis a Son of Zorn pop when i saw him in Broadway and he was surprised and very amused about it! I'm sure he'll be surprised with the Action Figure as well!

Love how these turned out Reese. Great job. I was jelly of those that were lucky enough to get the protos at the Fugitive Party. Time for me to start hunting & trading.

I know its obvious and not very creative... but I'd like to see some of the superhero lines reimagined in this 80s figure format.
A hulk, batman, deadpool, etc. And if you want some classic characters... how about HeMan & Thundercats.

I don't think the cancelation of the show will change Funko's plans for further use of this type of action figure. It's still a shame the show was dropped because it was fun. I would not mind seeing a Zorn series that was animation only.

I just found these today @ Target as well. The show didn't really impress me but the figures sure did. I'd love to see what else Funko can do in this scale.

Hey Rowden, if you are a follower of Funko's Reis Obrien on Instagram, you can check out some custom Thundarr figures that would be great to see released.
