Though never produced, Matchbox showed off a remote control Johnny Five from the filmÂ Short Circuit in their 1988 catalog.
The fact that there have never been anyÂ Short Circuit action figures makes me sad (aside from some unlicensed, high-cost piecesÂ a few years back). If NECA can give us a Claptrap fromÂ Borderlands, why not a Johnny Five? NECA seems like the perfect company to do it – they’ve already shown a penchant for producing toys based on 1980s sci-fi properties (Gremlins, E.T., Predator, Aliens), and they’re willing to produce lines that only have a handful of figures in themÂ (Evil Dead II,Â half of theÂ Player Select licenses, etc.).
