The Dark Crystal figure collection

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.

Any updates on the Garthim figure for release?


Nothing yet. As I stated before, as soon as I know something, I'll keep you all posted! :)

I finally received some of my pre-ordered DC figures. Aughra and Chamberlain. The sculpt on these in incredible. Much more realistic and detailed than I imagined. The Skeksis does seem slightly undersized, but no big deal.

As others have stated, the plastic blisters on all 4 of mine (I got two of each) were not attached to the card backs. I wanted to keep a set MOC, but obviously not possible. I was just curious if this was an issue that is being addressed? I can't see these selling at an outlet such as TRU when they are falling off the cards. That being said, I still love them and am very thankful to be getting them. I will hopefully receive the rest soon.

Yes, the bubbles falling off has been a problem at the factory level on occasion. We've taken steps to ensure this doesn't happen so often in the future. So sorry that this happened to your set. I totally feel your frustration!

This is a problem that is not just an issue with Funko. I purchased 2 Duke Nukems with similar issues. I am not sure what stage of the packaging process causes it, but I do see the problem showing up even at retail stores.

Hello Reis, I know you've stated that you'd share any news on the garthim once you have any, but just for our peace of mind, the figure is still getting distribution right? Or is there any chance we won't be seeing these at retail at all?

Hello Mr. Reis,

I have a similar question as above. Just want to know that the Garthim is still going to come out in retail in the near future, right?

My Galactic Empire's many battalions of Stormtroopers has staked their claim to most of my shelf space already. I figured a certain Hutt lord had room to house a pair in his dungeons though to keep his Rancor company!

Since the Garthim is going to TRU like the previous set, are they interested in the complete boxed set with Kira? Seems like it would be a big selling point... If not, is the MSRP going to drop from the previous sets price?

No, there will not be a re-release of the Garthim/Kira 2-pack. They were only interested in the single pack Garthim, and yes, I do believe the price will be lower, but I'm not sure what that price is at the moment.

Are there any plans for a wave 2?
More Skeksis and Mystics?
Zombie Slave Kira?
Podpeople?
Ice Armor Jen? (with color change action!)

..ok, maybe not that last one

Nice to hear! I was initially upset to hear no winged Kira would be included, but then I realized it's not that big of a deal to me. Maybe it is to some of you, but just my opinion. It is only seen briefly, and I probably wouldn't display her with the wings open anyway. As for the variant Fizzgig, I could probably sculpt my own little closed mouth version. He is such a simple design.

That being said, would it be legally ok to produce and sell a pair of similar style wings, maybe 3D printed in translucent plastic, that would fit onto the figure? I am not capable of this, but maybe someone is.

No plans for a wave 2. Funko will no longer be producing any more ReAction figures.

That's a question for our legal department. ;)
