Longbox Heroes Brings Us 4.5″ Retro Action Figures of Rocketeer, The Tick, and More!

Fresh Monkey Fiction

Did you grow up liking comic book characters that never made their way into action figure form? I was a big Mr. Monster fan, and not until the past few years has the gun-toting hero gotten his own toy. Thankfully, companies like Fresh Monkey Fiction are filling this void which a brand new toyline called Longbox Heroes.
Independent comic book heroes and villains are finally getting retro-styled action figures. Similar to Kenner’s Super Powers line, the Longbox Heroes have seven points of articulation and few accessories. Each figure is about 4.5″ tall and is sculpted by ToyOtter Toys’ Jason Geyer.
The first line is split up into two packs. The six-pack includes Cassie, Madman, Mr. Monster, The Good, Tick, and Grendel. This is priced at $174.99 and can be pre-ordered through the Big Bad Toy Store. A Rocketeer three-pack at the BBTS is $74.99 and comes with The Rocketeer, Black Phantom, and an Onslaught Trooper. The figures can be ordered individually for $24.99 each.
