Family Guy toys
« on: May 16, 2005, 10:22 AM »
another from AFX click here for a chuckle  I like the show and its irreverance.  Just don't find the toys around here though. 

Do we already have a thread for this?

My girl friend collects these. They are actually pretty cool. It was tough to find Lois and Chris from Series 1. Series 2 was much easier we just bought a full case so she got both versions of Death. I just picked up that 2-pack for her and she pre-ordered the Peter vs. Chicken 2-pack.

I love Family Guy - the toys look pretty kickass, but I've been on a pretty fixed budget here lately. If I get the chance to, I'll probably pick up a few.

I love the show (the RETURN OF THE CHICKEN last night had me coughing from laughing so hard), but I'm going to have to stay away from the toys.  I simply don't have the money for them.

That being said, if they make a Quagmire figure that does the head jerk action or the Dirty Old Man, someone let me know, as I'll break the rules to get those.   ;D

I was sort of tempted by these as well, as I really enjoy the show.  I see that Series 2 is on Amazon, but I must have missed the boat on Series 1.  I'd probably pick up a Stewie, and maybe Brian, first if anything.  I don't know that I've seen the Peter vs. Chicken 2 pack, that would be a nice pickup.  It was nice seeing their fight "continued" on Sunday's episode.  Hilarious.

That'd be cool to get a few Star Wars Family Guy figures... The Swallow chickling with Boba Fett's head, Chewbacca, Luke impaling some woman during eye surgery, Obi-Wan "Never been happy" Kenobi, and whatever ones I'm forgetting.

I love Family Guy. Own all 3 seasons on DVD. I saw the "Christoble" figure at FYE but passed.

I've have a Joe Swanson on my desk at work… needless to say I got strange looks from my co-workers.

Life size? From Funko? Or are you talking about the 12" version from Mezco?

Funko just released a Quagmire Bobblehead that has the head action. I got it for Xmas and it was the only one I wanted from the set for that reason...

As for the Mezco figures, I almost have them all including both Deaths, both box sets and the Toyfare Chris exclusive. The only ones I didnt get were Bedtime Stewie from series 1, the 1.5 family boxset, the 12" Stewie and the 18" Peter...

New series out now.  Finally they've gone with the core stuff for sales.  New Stewie sculpt, dance party Stewie and Bertram.  Rest of the series is pretty nice too.  Clevemire 8)

Picked up the entire series yesterday and these figures are fantastic with great accessories as well.  Well worth the money and interesting to note that after a couple of series not selling so well, they've gone back to their strength with Stewie and that suits me just fine.  How do you go wrong in a series with two Stewies, his unborn brother and a drunk dog in a banana suit? 

Series 7 looks interesting as well with young Death. :)
