Miss the Legacy 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.

Miss the Legacy collection

Postby JokersWild » Sat Apr 06, 2019 7:10 am

With McFarlane now producing the GoT 6” figures, I miss the Legacy collection. Yes, the face sculpts weren’t the greatest, but they had a lot of potential I felt.

Some of the legacy lines were pretty good.. I like my Power Armor from Fallout and the Firefly ones weren't that bad either.. I feel like they fell into the same category as the ReAction. Super hit or miss and most people didn't care for them.

Figures were a good size, just the faces were off!

The only one I ever picked up was the Rocketeer. The Cliff head was a bit generic but the helmet head was sharp and overall solid figure. IIRC they didn't have a foot hole for a peg, otherwise a solidly designed figure.

I feel like there was so much potential there...and when the first wave of GoT figures came out, I was convinced they would be a huge hit. I still think Funko could do an amazing job with the line of Harry Potter articulates figures.

The McFarlane figures are a pretty significant upgrade over the Legacy versions. So I just hope McFarlane has a good run. Jaime, Robb Stark and Drogo were all great Legacy figures. The body detail was great on most of the Funko GoT figures, but the faces were largely off and the QC issues were very real. I thought the Firefly figures had fairly accurate heads and I think Jayne and Mal are still great. I did really want a River out of the Firefly line and she never happened. I can't stress enough how happy I am to own a Rocketeer figure in that scale. Helmet on, I absolutely love that figure.

Funko is still struggling with QC issues. Most people who bought the four Thundercats have at least one of them missing a leg. Add in the fact that Funko half-does most lineups, which was major problem with ReAction, and you have no credibility with your end consumer. They started a 3 and 3/4 GoT line and didn't follow it up with anything. You can only do that so many times before people just stop investing in new lines with you. I'm happy the Legacy figures existed but I totally understand why they didn't last.

There was a good amount of potential, none ever spoke to me but I think it was the sculpts like most other people commented.
