To wrap up our Funko Toy Fair coverage, we quickly take a look at their ReAction and Legacy toy lines. In case you might be unfamiliar with either line, they are a toy line that reflects the Pop! figures that Funko already has. The ReAction figures have an old school feel about them. For those of us that grew up in the 80’s and 90’s, these figures have a strong nostalgia factor.  “Funko’s artists are from the era where they saw these as kids and they couldn’t get all of them” so it’s natural that the entire line reminds us of another time.

They are so ornate and extremely detailed. If you check out The Book of Life and The Fantastic Mr. Fox figures below, they look as if they are straight out of the movie. They each have interchangeable pieces like with Ash you can take the head off and put a new one on. If Funko Pops! or Vinyl Sugar aren’t your thing, then perhaps the Funko ReAction figures might be something worth checking out. Just like the Pops! line, there’s definitely a series that might appeal to you. Funko ReAction figures are action figure collectibles that appeal to a different audience and it’s nostalgia factor is just the icing on the cake.
