Nobody Ever Said No. 6 Can’t Be Kickstarted as an Action Hero, er Figure!

19 Apr

“I will not make any deals with you. I’ve resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own. I resign.”

… and ready to show how Patrick McGoohan can be imprisoned (well, his character of No 6 actually) is with Wandering Planet’s Kickstarter campaign to fund the first-ever officially licensed action figure line based on The Prisoner! This cult classic television show starring and created by this actor/producer still continues to influence to this day. The campaign will run from Monday April 19th until Wednesday, May 26th at 6:06 PM PT.  

In 1967 the cult classic TV series, The Prisoner burst onto the screen. The series, about an unnamed British intelligence agent who awakes to find himself trapped in an idyllic seaside village, was not only an instant hit with viewers at the time, it went on to be watched and re-watched obsessively by fans, quickly gaining cult status. And while there have been several collectables released over the decades, The Prisoner has never received a line of officially licensed action figures… until now. Wandering Planet Toys, appointed by ITV Studios, will bring to life 4-inch retro style action figures that celebrate Patrick McGoohan’s brilliant series.

Na na na na na na … Batman! And Robin of Course!

22 Sep

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

batmanfigures1Holy posable! Fans of the 60’s series must take a look at the figures of the dynamic duo from Hot Toys.

These figures of Batman and Robin are modeled after the 1966 Batman movie (rather than the series) and they come with nifty accessories.

The figures are crafted in 1/6th scale and have 30 points of articulation. Batman is approximately 30cm tall while Robin is 28cm.

They are expected to ship in Q2-Q3, 2014. They carry a hefty price tag  but I must say that the look of the figures themselves are incredible. I’m not a toy collector to the extent that others are, but I may change my mind on these two. Maybe I’ll even acquire a museum-quality glass display case just for these figures as the start of a small collection.
