Barely a month since I expressed my disappointment with Funko’s line of retro-styled movie action figures, rival toy company Bif Bang Pow! shows them how it’s done with a really superb line of figures based on classic ‘Twilight Zone’ episodes.
These ‘Twilight Zone’ figures are designed in the same 3.75″ scale, in the style of vintage ‘Star Wars’ toys. However, unlike Funko’s cheap-looking “ReAction” line, these have decent sculpting with reasonable likenesses to William Shatner and Burgess Meredith in their respective episodes. They look retro, with the limited articulation and visible joints, yet they look good. The cool black-and-white coloring is the icing on the cake.
Big Bang Pow!’s ‘Twilight Zone’ figures can be preordered from retailer Entertainment Earth at the same $9.99 price point as the inferior ReAction toys. They’re scheduled for release in August.
