Title: For A Few Dollars More Action Figures Out Now
Post by: Hudd on April 16, 2008, 04:36:58 PM
Hello all,

Just a heads-up, the first ever Leone based action figures are finally out in stores! Minimates action figures have created a 4-pack of figures from For a Few Dollars More, including 2 separate Clint's, one Indio, and one Colonel Mortimer. I absolutely love these figures, and there is a Fistful of Dollars set coming out in July, which includes The Man With No Name, Ramon Rojo, John Baxter, and Marisol. I can't wait for a GBU version with Tuco.... and my dream, OUATITW figures...

I posted about these some time ago but thanks for the reminder Hudd.

A shame they look awful. I'll have to give these a miss.

They look eh, but it's the thought that counts. 


I would LOVE to see OUATITW action figures!!!   O0

...but better than these. If they were like these, they'd better leave the beautiful OUATITW alone...

You have a point, but I still feel that it's the thought that counts. Just the fact that a profitable toy company is actually producing Leone action figures makes my heart warm.   :)

I don't know... I think differently. The thing that makes my heart warm is the fact it's already widely popular. But the fact that they're going to profit on it with this doesn't.

But do they make you want to part with some of your cold cash? If the answer is no, they have failed in their intention.

I'm the exact opposite. Toys and merchandise in general (outside of a movie poster or something of the like) are for Spielberg and Lucas movies. Personally, I would hate to see corporate America profit from Serge's movies. I'm glad the figures suck.
