The Golden Girls Are Being Turned Into Action Figures
Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, Blanche Devereaux, and Sophia Petrillo have long been heroes for fans of the iconic 1980s sitcom The Golden Girls. Now, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA)—purveyor of fine pop culture collectibles—is giving them the action figure treatment with a brand-new line of 8-inch-tall figures that will look perfect on your desk, encased in theft-proof glass, or simply hanging out under the lanai on a warm summer’s day.
The company, which showcased the figures at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, took the task of turning these American icons into pocket-sized action figures seriously—and highlighted the steps they took to get the figures’ face sculpts just right on their Facebook page:
Each figure comes decked out in fabric clothing that’s both character-appropriate and well-suited to the sticky Miami weather.
It’s not the first time a toymaker has channeled their love of the Girls into plastic; Funko did the same—albeit with much bigger heads and more exaggerated features—back in 2016. But NECA’s collection endeavors to be a more accurate likeness of the sassy seniors. The bad news? They’re not expected to ship until early 2019—but you can pre-order your set now for $114.99.
