Just an update on my earlier post regarding the quality control issues on Funko’s Game of Thrones Legacy Collection: in a comment, Funko’s Shawndra Illingworth wrote, Funko has been made aware of these QC issues and our factory has been informed of what changes need to be made on future waves of Legacy. Thanks so much! […]
Quality control issues are nothing new in the action figure hobby over the last ten years. The reasons for this are obvious. The most significant problems are rising production costs. The cost of almost everything involved in producing action figures is on a continual and precipitous rise – the petroleum for the plastic, the petroleum […]
UPDATE: By the way, you can order these on BN.com. Funko president Brian Mariotti posted official photos of the first wave of the Legacy Collection Game of Thrones figures, along with the following note: Funko is proud to announce of first ever line of premium action figures. It’s a shame we could not release this information the […]
So user punksraven at the Funko Fanatic forum did some research: Hey guys, I’m new here. After those ebay pics surfaced, I did some investigating. Got a UPC off the Hound’s box in the ebay pics. It’s 849803039127. They’re in TRUs system but no stores in my area have them yet. I’ve also called three […]

Trust old eBay to provide us with the first photos of Funko’s 6″, super-articulated Game of Thrones figures. These were going to be revealed in about a week anyway, so really they did a pretty good job of hiding […]
So – Funko wasn’t kidding around when they said they would have a ton of ReAction figures available at the line’s launch.
Commentary on a few bits of toy- and geek-related news that interested Poe over the last few days.
As you may know, Hasbro has partnered with Gentle Giant in producing the Star Wars Black 6″ (confirmation of this can be found in this interview with Gentle Giant). In an encouraging sign, it appears that Funko may be working with Gentle Giant as well for their 6″ line, which is scheduled to include figures from Game […]
This post is largely reworked from comments I wrote for Firefly confirmed for “Funko Legacy 6″ line (and ReAction as well).” It got me thinking about Funko’s ReAction as a style and brand, not just a set of remolded Kenner protoypes (speaking of, here’s CollectionDX’s review of the Alien ReAction figures). Super7 originally developed the toys, but then […]
The president of Funko (un)officially confirms Game of Thrones for their 6″ realistically-sculpted Legacy toy line.
