Kenner-style Reaction Figures







Ok,  I don't know what rock I've been living under, but I had no idea that these figures existed. One of my old professors from college had a few of the original Star Wars figures that Kenner had brought out when the movies first came out, and she had given them to me and I instantly fell in love with them, but I had no clue that Funko had started a whole line in the same style. I've always been a huge fan of the style of old toys, especially the packaging, so I was super excited when I found these in stores. It took all my willpower not to buy every single one on the shelf.

If you or anyone you know is addicted to collecting figures or old toys like I am, I would definitely recommend checking these Reaction figures out. The figures themselves are so cool and have that whole retro feel about them, and the packaging is amazing. So far, I've only seen them for sale in Barnes and Noble, and they're all pretty affordable too (around $9.99 each.) I'm going to need more wall space because I'm planning on buying as many as I can. You can see the full line of what they offer on the Funko website (here).

  1. I own three of these figures! Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Street, Alien from Alien which I actually got in a Loot Crate, and Barrel with Teddy Scare from Nightmare before Christmas. I try not to leave my figures in packages but even these are too nice to rip out!
