Your ReAction 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.

It's great you are are giving the Garthim a wider release, but why is this the only way? Would it not have been easier/cheaper to have the factory produce a second run of the existing pack with Winged Kira, than to setup a new SKU and packaging for a single-packed Garthim? And if you can release a single-packed Garthim, why not a single-packed Winged Kira, as well?

Sorry for being so persistent, but it is just passion for this movie and these figures, and a desire for fellow Dark Crystal fans to get that one, last figure to complete this collection, without paying $200+ on the aftermarket.

I truly am appreciative of your work on this line, and for your interaction and willingness to answer our passionate questions and concerns.


There are a hundred things that go on behind the scenes that collectors are not aware of when producing a mass release of a product. There can be factory issues, retailer requests, licensor requests, etc. It's not always a matter of us just being able to do what we want to do. This is one of those cases.

This is not a Reaction question, well maybe just a little bit. I saw an announcement for a Funko figure called Son of Zorn that looked like a Heman scaled figure. Is this figure in the same scale as the Masters of the Universe figures in the 80s? If not is it in 3 3/4" scale? Is this a hint of what a Funko Reaction Conan might have looked like? If this is in the same scale as old Heman is there a chance for more figures in this scale and format in the future? I throw that name Conan out there again because just like crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you and hearing the lamentation of the women are all good....a Conan figure would be even better!

Funko figure called Son of Zorn is 5inch scale, so the same scale of the old Masters of the Universe figures of the 80s. I will not want Conan the Barbarian in that scale or look. Conan the Barbarian should get the 9POA treatment and detailed as the GOT figures of the 3 3/4 inch figures.

Zorn is exactly the same scale as the old MOTU/Remco figures. And yes, I'm hoping to get many other figures made in this style!

If you really want Conan figures made in this style, gather your fellow barbarians and make your voices heard! I'm trying really hard to make this a reality!

While this is also a possibility, there are no plans for it at the moment.

Sound great that is a possibility. If FUNKO was going to do a ReAction Conan the Barbarian figure 3.75 inch before passing it to Super 7, why can FUNKO just pick up it's original plan for Conan and make him with the 9POA action figure line?

Reis have you ever checked out the Realm of the Underworld figures? I think the company that makes these is Zoloworld. I have a few and it's a line as near and dear to my heart as Reaction figures. Masters of the Universe and Remco inspired action figures is an area I think Funko will really Pop in! (Pun unintended but really fitting in this case!)

Conan the Barbarian is a MUST in the MOTU/Son of Zorn 5" figure scale style! I was excited about the Conan ReAction, but Conan in vintage He-Man figure 5" style would be WAY cooler. What God must we please?

They did do a line of Conan figures but they weren't based on the 1982 movie. In fact, the only thing "Conan" about them was the name on the backing cards.

We had a chance to do Jurassic Park but passed on it. They've been done already and quite recently. I'm still seeing JP toys peg-warming at TRU. I just don't think that it maintained a high enough level of cultural longevity to warrant retro-style figures.



So after the success of Jurassic World, is this still the position of Funko regarding Reaction figures?

Well, we aren't making any ReAction figures going forward, so this for sure won't be happening.

Great, thanks!

Is there any change at all to the single pack Garthim vs the 2-pack NYCC one, aside from the winged Kira? Like color?

May we see a pic of it if possible please?
