Funko's ReAction line is one of my favorite new lines of 2014. When I first started becoming a serious toy collector back in the early 2000s, one of my favorite reference websites was Kevin Lentz's 3 3/4-Inch Archives. The site hasn't been updated in about 7 years at this point, but I'm sure if it were, it would be brimming with excitement over these new figures. There's something extremely charming and nostalgic about action figures from the late 70s and early 80s that gets lost on modern toys. Funko's ReAction line is doing a great job of bringing that feeling back. While many of the (modern) ReAction properties don't appeal to me (Buffy, Nightmare Before Christmas, etc), most of the retro properties have me giddy. For example, this Bride of Frankenstein figure finally fills the void left by her absence in Remco's 1979 Universal Studio's Mini Monster line. As someone who was combing through those archives realizing the lack of women over the years, this line is a godsend. Let's check her out below!
The split dress leg articulation bothered me visually at first, but now I view it as a quirky throwback to the few females they ever even attempted in the 70s (ie Princess Leia).
I just had a minor geek freakout when I realized Elsa Lanchester also played Katie Nanna in Mary Poppins.
Five splendid points of articulation.
Time for a Group Pic!
