Your 9POA Questions Answered Here!

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.

Not at the moment. We have some we'd love to make in the future, but we want to see how the Batmobile does first. :)

Any Stranger Things 9POA figures planned? How about a Tiny Ghost 9POA figure? Ok that last one was a joke but Stranger Things would be sweet!

Oh, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Batman '66, after CW DC figures(which I hope you guys eventually change your mind about making, but you're already spoiling me)is the dream line that I wanted you guys to make! Man, I'm gonna need to get every single figure now. I'm also glad that you guys are making the Batmobile right off of the bat, as that sexy beast is one that I've been wanting to get in this scale, but have been unable to find at a decent price from Mattel's diecast versions.

Hey, just saw some pics of the Batman 66 figures at Toy Fair(again, looking amazing), and I noticed some certain elements.

1) Some of the figures seem to have a peg assembly that would indicate an outward hinge joint at the shoulder(from my knowledge, if they were retail samples, they would usually be covered up more, but you can usually see them on prototypes). I also noticed that

2) Some of the figures appear to have a cut right at the wrist, indicating a swivel at that point.


My question here is if these figures do truly have those points of articulation, or is that just some prototype weirdness? I don't mind either way.

The Batman 66 figures are so fun. I watched afterschool as a kid, and I would have loved these exact figures.

Really excited Catwoman & Batgirl made Wave 1!!!!

I think the Batman figures look great, so will certainly pick these up. I hope they do well and we get another wave. Would the Green Hornet and Kato (Bruce Lee) be covered by this license as they appeared in 60's Batman in a cross over?

Many thanks!

Yes, the shoulders have an insert ball joint for those "come at me bro" poses. But no wrist articulation.

We will have an update on Stranger Things hopefully soon.

No plans for Lost at this point.

I'd love to see The Goonies in this style. I know there was an attempt with ReAction...but I just don't think that style was quite right. 9PoA would really make them the figures of my childhood dreams.

I think the other issue w/ ReAction was the same choice Mezco made - only half the group got produced. There are some solid options with the core gang of Mikey, Chunk, Data, Mouth, Andy, Brand and Stef...along with Sloth, Ma Fratelli & the Fratelli boys.

Anyway. I imagine that ship has sailed, but I do think they could be done and done well in this style!

And just imagine a cave playset (w/ the collapsing skeleton piano) or One Eyed Willie's pirate ship. THE POSSIBILITIES.

Maybe a boxed set of all the captains to test interest?


Unfortunately, this is pretty unlikely at this point. Sorry.


Sorry to beat a dead horse here Reis but does this reply mean it is unlikely we will see Star Trek at all indefinitely? The Pops you guys did for Star Trek: Beyond were great! I would have really liked to have seen some of those great character designs especially the Aliens as 3 3/4" figures! I'm hoping the CBS All Access Star Trek: Discovery series that is in development now will maybe garner some new fans to the genre. My question is do y'all have fans of Star Trek on the design team? If so what are some of the things that they would like to produce? Does the co-ownership of Star Trek between Paramount and CBS contribute to the difficulty in this lines success?

Oh sorry I have another question. When will we see or hear info about the Second Wave of Game of Thrones? Will these get the shoulder hinge too?

Batman 66 figures look awesome, will definitely get those!

But my question is concerning the lack of GOT action figures (wave 2) in Toy Fair 2017. Is GOT wave 2 coming out this year 2017 or will there be no more waves for GOT?

Also will you provide a list of 3.75 inch action figures coming out in 2017?

Basically it all comes down to sales. I wouldn't say "indefinitely", because anything can happen in the future, but for the foreseeable future we do not have any plans for further Star Trek figures.

And yes, we have some major Trekkies (and Trekkers) on the design team, but even they know the climate out there for Trek collectibles.

Unfortunately, while we focus on other properties, the GoT 9POA figures have been put on the back burner for the moment. If we get back to them, then yes, they will have the ball joints in the shoulders.

See my above answer on the GoT figures. We don't have an official list of offerings for 2017 as it's still being developed. But rest assured that we have some pretty exciting things coming up!

Not so much a question but a statement about that 1966 Batmobile with Batman and Robin. I have been wanting this all my life! On that note, it sure makes me wish for a Colonial Viper and Cylon Raider from Classic Battlestar Galactica! Modern too!

So many questions being fired off right now. Do you ever get tired of answering them(especially the repeats)?

Not at all! I love answering peoples' questions! Although, some of the repeaters would do well to maybe read back through things to see if it's been covered already. :)
