Boss Fight Studios may be known for making action figures from classic properties like Flash Gordon, Zorro, Popeye, and Sam & Max, but now the company is delving into a little nicer and sweeter franchise.
We discovered, thanks to Figures.com, that Boss Fight is going to take on a berry familiar franchise that that has seen several restarts over the past few years. Yes, Strawberry Shortcake brings berries, pies, niceness, and cuteness back … again.
There’s not a whole lot of info. The toys have yet to show up on Boss Fight’s website, but we have pictures of the first four figures: Strawberry Shortcake, Orange Blossom, Lime Chiffon, and Huckleberry Pie. We know that the figures will be available for pre-order sometime this month at Boss Fight Studios.
The figures will come with many accessories and secondary characters based on the photos, much like Super7’s Ultimates line. Each figure looks like they have 11+ points of articulation. Will these figures be scented like the classic ’80s toys? When will we get the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak? And the biggest question is: where is Bitch Pudding?
What is refreshing is that these toys are based on the original 1980 World of Strawberry Shortcake cartoons by Fred Wolf rather than the updated takes we’ve seen over the past twenty years.
What always amused me was that Fred Wolf was also responsible for the very mature and raunchy Down and Dirty Duck animated movie. His animation style and character designs are very apparent in both.
Is Strawberry Shortcake too innocent for today’s world? Will you be picking up these figures thanks to nostalgia? Let us know in the comments section below.
