I'm dead serious here.
McFarlane and SOTA and similar companies have made some killer figures in the Movie Maniacs and Now Playing lines, mostly focused on horror and sci-fi. But what about the (mostly) cheesy 80s movies we all watched over and over as kids and still adore to this day?
I'm thinking characters like:
Harry from Harry & the Hendersons
Johnny-5 from Short Circuit (perhaps with a Short Circuit 2 version as a variant)
Sloth, Chunk, and Data from The Goonies
The Gremlins (if the license is available again)
decent ET figures
Bill, Ted, Billy, Socrates, Rufus, and Napoleon from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
the Martians from Spaced Invaders
Adventures in Babysitting (sounds dumb, maybe, but wouldn't a Marvel Masterwork style figure set of the movie poster kick arse?)
Daniel-San and Miyagi from The Karate Kid
And, possibly more than any other beloved 80s film:
Westley, Buttercup, Enigo, Fezzik, and Humperdinck from The Princess Bride
Like I said, I'm dead serious.
You know as well as I do that such a line would sell like hotcakes.
Because you'd be second in line behind me buying them all. (Okay, I'm passing on the Short Circuit 2 variant of Johnny-5. That sequel kinda blew chunks.)
