Over this Holiday season and the various editorial meetings we had, was the question, “What was our favorite toy or toy line for 2014?” We had some hot feuded geeky discussions, but on everybody’s list was the Super7 x Funko ReAction action figures.
The old Retrender staffers like Stephen and Johnny who actually grew up in the 1980s (cough … they old) said it brought them memories of being a kid in the 1980s. As for me, I just remember watching these ReAction figures as DVDs movies at home with my parents. And that lead to a discussion of “What If?” figure line-ups for 2015. So, Super 7 and Funko, we are calling you out, please take a look at our ReAction action figure wish list!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys are everywhere! The Playmates line-up already feature their Classics Series, Movie Series, Nickelodeon Series and kids toy line-up. Now earlier this year Kidrobot did their vinyl take on TMNT, and now The Loyal Subjects get in on the action.
I’m not the biggest fan of TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), but I’ve been fan of the toys and been collecting the various Playmates Toys TMNT figures. Not to confuse non-fans, but there are 3 product lines of the Turtles in a Half Shell, 1) the classic line of figures, 2) the Nickelodeon cartoon figures, and 3) the movie version figures. If you’re not satisfy with the Playmates toys, then I suggest the pricey Kaiyodo Revoltech figures which offers cool packaging if you’re into that stuff, more articulation and accessories for pose-ability.
