Awesome Toy Collection – Year End Showhand 2017

Hi world! 2017 has drawn to a close, and I’m back with my Year End Showhand, showcasing items from my awesome toy collection that I had acquired over the course of the year or even earlier.

First I’m showcasing a couple of Funko 3.75″ figures. Funko is a toy company nowadays more famous for producing their Pop! Vinyl series of super-deformed figures. But Funko also produces 3.75″ figures of characters from movies and TV series. As these figures are of considerably lesser articulation and have a somewhat more retro design,  Funko is able to make these figures under a cheaper license. As a result these figures can get to be made, rather than get ignored by some of the more established toy companies who are less inclined to invest too much capital on characters that they consider less popular and will not sell well, especially for the 3.75″ scale.

Funko “Suicide Squad” 3.75″ figures.
Bottom row: Joker, Harley Quinn, Joker (shirtless), Harley (inmate), Enchantress, Katana
Top row:  Deadshot, Killer Croc, Batman (Underwater), Batman (chase variant)
There’s no word on whether the rest of the Suicide Squad are going to be made, such as Rick Flag, Captain Boomerang, El Diablo, or even Slipknot.

From top: Batgirl, Catwoman, Bookworm, Mr. Freeze, King Tut, and Batmobile with Batman & Robin.
Comments from Funko suggests that future waves are in the works.

“The Rocketeer”, and “The Mummy”
Funko was releasing these retro-design under the label “ReAction Figures”, but they seemed to have dropped the name recently.

“Green Lantern Movie” 3.75″ figures
After acquiring the individual GL figures that I occasionally come across, I’ve decided to just simply complete whoever that I was still lacking by buying them online. Methinks that all the alien GL figs are here, including Salaak who was released only as part of the “Leaders of the Corps” 4-pack. Bet you didn’t know that they’ve also made a figure for Test Pilot Martin Jordan, Hal’s dad. Martin comes with a cool parachute which he didn’t really use in the movie (although Hal did use one). One thing that I did decide against doing was to get all the different costume variations of Hal Jordan (there are many, most of which are not screen accurate). That would have been pushing it.

And now a couple of snaps of my McFarlane’s Monsters Playsets. Bought them a long time ago but haven’t actually showcased them yet.
