I picked up the Aliens Ripley/Queen/Powerloader set from Kokomo Toys tonight for $25 shipped. Haven't seen this in any stores yet and according to Super 7 the MSRP on this thing is $30, so this seemed like a good deal.

Happy hunting!  :)
Don't even act like I didn't buy that doughnut...I got the documentation right here...

Got this over the weekend but the front corner of the box was all crushed. 2nd damaged item I got in as many days. :(

I just saw TRU has added this item to their website though, so hopefully I can find a nice minty one in store someday. I am dying to open this thing but I need at least one MISB.

If any of you happen to run across an extra of the chase version of Oogie Boogie and would be interested in helping a guy out???

I'll do the same if I stumble across more than one.

Stumbled across some ReAction figures at Tuesday Morning of all places, a few Uhuras, a Karate Kid, Snake Plissken and Jack Burton.

They were only $2.99 each so I bought them all. I have a nice batch of cheap extras between the various Target and Barnes and Noble clearances and now this.

For that price, I'm happy to stockpile these guys.

Wow, I really thought the Golden Girls thing was just an elaborate April Fool's prank. Who in the hell would buy that? Everyone who watched the show is dead now!

I can't deny the appeal of Bea Arthur's dome for Ackmena customs, but what do you do with the other 3?

The DC set is all kinds of awesome. I need a lot of Garthims.

My God. The Dark Crystal set. I don't have the previous set yet but I guess I'm looking for it now. I think my brother - who doesn't collect toys at all but is a massive GG fan - would probably buy these.  ;D

My wife loves the Golden Girls, and I do too.

I'm buying.

Darby - ICYMI this summer, AFI had a really nice interview with the Funko team on these.  Great insight into how they used (and improved) designs from the original Kenner line that was cancelled before it even began.

Article also talks about how ReAction will now be taking a balanced approach between modern and retro - "we had to do some experimenting to find that sweet spot, not too accurately retro, not too hyper-realistic."

Last part stil give me hope that we'll get a The Last Starfighter line eventually...

Thanks Jeff! Very good article. I'm glad they're tweaking the Retro concept a little. A lot of the initial offerings were all properties I wanted and they just came out very blah. Some great. These look amazing. One line I'd love to see revisited is The Black Hole. I think that would make for a gangbusters series for Reaction.
