Spotlight: Funko Jaws Reaction Figures

It's been a long time since I did a photo review of a modern toy, this is mainly because I don't buy that many modern toys. 

Funko's Jaws line was a break in that drought. I haven't been much into the ReAction stuff as I thought I would be, mostly because the licenses don't appeal but also the figure aesthetic hasn't always been to my liking.

However, the stars lined up pretty swell for this line, it's the perfect license combined with a nice job. More after the jump:

I got my set at Entertainment Earth, if you like what you see and want to order, please use this link. I get a tiny but much appreciated kick back from every purchase.

The chairman of the board is the Shark, if they just made this and not the figures, I'd have been satisfied.

The card art is the poster, so you can't go wrong but the nicer thing is you can pop the characters off the card and totally get who they're supposed to be. 

I think Quint is the most popular character in the line, I had to wait to get mine.

There is no boat for the series but my childhood Fisher Price Adventure People boat will fill in for the Orca.

An appearance by Aquaman would have greatly altered the ending to the original film.

The league of 70s icons take down Bruce!

I'm trying to convince myself I don't need these, you're not helping!

Wait... where did the Battle of the Planets Galactor mook come from, and where can I get one?!

I got it from Japan, a cell phone company sold them (and sadly, only them) about ten years back. On the secondary market a three pack runs about 30 bucks US.

Thanks for the information - I think Galactor mooks must be *the* most abused mooks in history, one of them even got his face roller skated overby the Gatchaman team once... :-)
