Are all Action Figure Lines Dead?

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.

Are all Action Figure Lines Dead?

Postby xmaldigolax » Thu Nov 28, 2019 1:18 pm

Haven't really heard a peep. They haven't advertised ANYTHING new. I feel like, if it isn't a Funko Pop, no one really cares. Oh and Loungefly. Kinda sad. Most of my favorite Funko lines have fizzled (Rock Candy, Dorbz, Action Figures, Hikari). I dunno...depressed.

Great question...
Bad news is that we might never "officially" know, they will just fizzle out and never come back. I loved the action figures, though. :(
Love the MOTU line, keep 'em coming please!

They just released a new wave of Rick and Morty I think. It may not be the action figures you’re thinking of.
The first wave is had extra pieces in them to create an extra character.

Dark Crystal are new. Married With Children was an unexpected surprise. Very sporadic though.

I don’t think the line is dead, I just think people aren’t all that interested, IMO.

It's a shame because I enjoy seeing things that aren't Pop!s. It adds variety to my collection. I love seeing different interpretations of some of my favorite characters.

Yup! Funko listens to their fans, so you just need to get the fans hyped up about it!

The thing about Loungefly is that they actually come out with new products very frequently it's just that they nor Funko EVER announce it lol It frustrates me because all of a sudden I go, "What?! They had this?! Since when?!" I just wish Loungefly was more active on social media and that Funko pushed more of Loungefly products as well. Especially apparel because apparel is cool.

Absolutely! I grew up with action figures and prefer them to Pops. Thankfully we have Super 7 (ReAction) and Mezco (5 points) still giving us hope.

Is it a similar concept as Marvel Legends?

I don’t collect either line so I’m not an expert but I would say they’re similar. I think the R&M come with accessories and come on a card rather than package that you can remove it from. I’ve seen them At Target but you can find them on Amazon. They do have articulated points.

Cool, thanks. I'll have to keep my eyes open for them the next time I'm at Target.

Same here! My main focus as a collector is 3.75" action figures so the lack of any new figures makes my heart sad (but my wallet happy.) I hope Mezco finds success with the 5 points, but mostly because I want a lot of figures from that Warriors line.

Seems like these days you can sum up the comments of most new announcements by sticking a picture of SNL Michael Myers with a word ballon saying "if it's not a pop it's CRAP!' in the comments. Bummer too, I was really digging the Vynl line. Soda looks interesting but have to gauge my excitement, seems like my interest = cursed.

I hadn't seen the Addams Family figs! Those look stellar and they release early next year. Nice!

They are still making some from the time to time, but with regards to the reaction figures, it seems that Funko has stopped collaborating with Super7 already.

If you also notice, Super7 are still releasing those action figures right now.

oh yeah the reaction line is long severed from funko, i think they honestly flourished more when they separated. the licenses they aquired on their own seem to fit more with their indie style.
