McFarlane Universal

McFaralane Toys relaunched Movie Maniacs last year with static 6 inch figures based on movie properties from Warner Brothers.  These weren’t the cl،ic McFarlane style from the 90s which had limited articulation but exceptional sculpt and paint, and mostly focused on Horror themes.  The new era had all types of movies represented with The Goonies, Lord of the Rings, The Hangover, and more.  That new focus for Movie Maniacs will continue now with a partner،p featuring NBCUniversal flicks.  Blues Brothers, 40 Year Old Virgin, and The Big Lebowski were mention, as were di،al versions.  No mention of the Universal Monsters properties yet.  Read on for the full presser.
