It’s not inconceivable that a company like Super7 would want to make a series of retro-styled action figures based on one of the greatest fantasy movies from the 1980s. In fact, they have! Get ready for The Princess Bride ReAction Figures!
Wave 1 will include Dread Pirate Roberts, Fezzik, Inigo Montoya, Vizzini, and Princess Buttercup. Each $20 character, with the exception of Buttercup, comes with an accessory, including swords, daggers, and Fezzik’s boulder.
The ReAction Figures come on blister cards featuring illustrations of each character rather than the Kenner-esque still shots from The Princess Bride. This design choice makes the figures even more display worthy than if Super7 had tried the traditional retro look.
I can easily see at least two or three more waves for this series, including multiple versions of Wesley and Buttercup, along with Miracle Max, Valerie, Prince Humperdinck, the Albino, and Count Rugen.
Sometimes, Super7 makes playsets, and The Princess Bride would be the perfect property for them. A Kenner-inspired cliffside playset and maybe Miracle Max’s house would sell really well. Put some of those classic Kenner play features in there, and this could be the line that draws people back into collecting Super7 figures again.
“It’s INCONCEIVABLE that The Princess Bride wasn’t a smash hit at the box office, but thanks to home video it has become one of the most beloved cult classics of all-time! Super7 is proud to introduce your favorite Princess Bride characters as ReAction Figures”
In 2021, McFarlane Toys announced a line of The Princess Bride action figures. The 3.75″ tall characters didn’t look that great. The initial photos of the action figures had less-than-great paint applications. I can’t remember ever seeing these hit store shelves, but they are currently on clearance for less than $20 through Entertainment Earth.[Source: Super7]
