Review: Funko Back to the Future Marty McFly ReAction Figure

Funko Back to the Future Marty McFly ReAction FigureTo say that Marty McFly was was a long-awaited action figure is a gross understatement. Fans expected Mattel to make some after announcing that they had the license, but now that it seemingly lapsed and nothing was announced it seems that no, this was to be. Funko brought out excellent Pop! Vinyl figures, while Diamond Select Toys did some bang-up Minimates. This figure is the culmination of decades of expectations and desires, and as such cannot possibly please everybody. I can tell you that it's pretty good, but quality control is a bit of an issue here - if you just want a Marty, go with the Pop! Vinyl. If you love this format, you simply must buy this figure.

Review: SDCC Funko Predator (Invisible, Bloody) Action Figure

Funko Predator (Invisible, Bloody) ReAction FigureThe debut of the mold for this action figure was, surprisingly, a Comic-Con exclusive! Technically a "prepaint," Funko's Predator (Invisible, Bloody) was one of the few things that had be drooling at the show - the clear version of the figure was acceptable, sure, but getting it early with some nasty green splatters on it? Oh man, sold. The figure is typical of this kind of toy - 5 joints, and the neck is restricted due to the figure's design. The long hair and shoulder cannon prevent movement, but it is a separate piece. This is sensible, given there are a whopping five Predators coming so far and there are two heads between them.
