Funko and Reaction announce first 4 inch line...

Funko has posted a major, major announcement. They have announced a ton of upcoming ReAction Figures, 6″ Legacy Figures, Pop! Vinyl Figures and more. Included in the announcement is that beloved, and short lived, sc-fi series Firefly will be getting both the ReAction and the 6″ Legacy Action Figure treatment. Also, another Joss Whedon series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, will be getting the ReAction Figure treatment.
Funko’s ReAction line are 3.75″ figures, modeled in the style of classic 70′s and 80′s action figures. Think classic Kenner Star Wars for a visual style. In Funko’s own words, their 6″ Legacy line is said to rival the Star Wars Black Series in terms of style and articulation.


UM...NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What in the hell is that about?  They announce all these great lines, do a 1979 Alien line....Then jump from them to the nineties Buffy and Firefly?  I have never seen those shows and will never.  I thought this was supposed to be about VINTAGE stuff!  They announced they were doing Universal Monsters, Escape from New York, and Classic Star Trek before.  Why start out with nineties properties that I feel have a LESSER fan base?  Buffy and Firefly are for single guys that are old and are usually not married who have to have fantasies about Sarah Michelle Geller....

Oh well....Someone let me know when Universal Monsters and you know....COOL lines come out.  Sheesh....
