I’ve got a Golden Ticket! It came in the form of some much-anticipated action figures based on the 1971 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory gave us so many pop culture icons, from Gene Wilder’s titular character to the moralizing Oompa Loompas. Now, you can take the action home and recreate the candy maker’s kiddy killer factory of horrors with Super7’s new ReAction Figures!
Willy Wonka, Violet Beauregarde, and Mike Teevee make up the first wave of these figures. Like other Super7 ReAction Figures we’ve covered recently, these are $20 each. However, all three can be picked up at one time for $60.

“Not all gum is fit to chew in Willy Wonka’s™ factory, even if you’re a champion gum-chewer like Violet Beauregarde! This 3.75″ scale, articulated Willy Wonka™ ReAction Figure of Violet Beauregarde is inspired by her appearance in the classic 1971 film and includes Wonka Bar and Golden Ticket accessories.

“Only the many wonders of Willy Wonka’s™ factory could pry Mike TeeVee away from his beloved television! This 3.75″ scale, articulated Willy Wonka™ ReAction Figure of Mike TeeVee is inspired by his appearance in the classic 1971 film and includes Wonka Bar and Golden Ticket accessories. Make a sweet addition to your collection by adding the Mike TeeVee ReAction Figure!“
We rarely get to see Gene Wilder action figures. His version of Willy Wonka got a Mego figure not too long ago, and back in the mid-2000s, Sideshow created a Young Frankenstein line of 12″ tall collectibles. Sadly, we never got Silver Streak toys. OK, that line would have only appealed to a tiny group of kids. Still, I would have loved to have 3.75″ tall Richard Pryor.
What would you do with a lifetime supply of chocolate? I’d sell it and sue Willy Wonka for the obesity epidemic. However, in the fantasy world of Mel Stuart’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, the problem with obesity was solved via a chocolate river and a suction tube straight to the fudge room.
