There's no stopping the raging pop-culture bandwagon that is Stranger Things and it appears that there's also no marketing or merchandising area that hasn't yet been targeted, including the collector toy market.
Spawn creator and Image Comics co-founder Todd McFarlane's McFarlane Toys is known for delivering some of the wildest fringe novelties and licensed tie-in products from every corner of geekdom. Now the company is poised to mass-produce a line of Stranger Things action figures this fall to coincide with the second season of the Netflix sensation from The Duffer Brothers.
The initial wave of toys will be of Eleven and Chief Hopper, with plans for the remaining members of the cast to roll out shortly thereafter.
Here are the details:
From the Netflix TV series Stranger Things comes these 7-inch scale action figures! The Stranger Things Action Figures are highly detailed and articulated action figures of iconic characters Eleven and Chief Hopper sculpted from assets taken directly from the series. The figures are in 7-inch scale with 12 points of articulation for dynamic posing and feature show-accurate attires with accessories included. The figures come in a retro-themed packaging. Eleven stands about 5-inches tall, is sculpted from images of actress Millie Bobby Brown, and comes with removable blonde wig, radio, and waffle. Eleven is featured in dress and jacket outfit. Chief Hopper is sculpted from images of actor David Harbour and comes with a removable Sheriff’s hat, pistol, and coffee mug. The figure is featured in sheriff’s outfit worn by Chief Hopper. Both figures feature a stylized Stranger Things-branded display base and are showcased in retro themed packaging.
Check out the packaging prototype of the first pair below and admit you'll be hoarding these like a greedy Demogorgon when they're released in November.
