Stranger Things, nearly a year after its initial release, remains insanely popular and is one of Netflix's biggest original hits to date. We are all still awaiting the arrival of season 2, which is coming this Halloween, but in the meantime, we will have some pretty cool merchandise to tide us over. The latest example of said cool merchandise comes in the form of some high-quality Stranger Things action figures, courtesy of McFarlane Toys.
The good news of these awesome looking Stranger Things action figures comes courtesy of a pre-order listing on Entertainment Earth. According to their listing, both Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Chief Hopper (David Harbour) are going to get the McFarlane Toys treatment. Unfortunately, they are the only two who are listed for now, so you Barb fans are going to have to wait a little while longer to get her as an action figure. The best news? Eleven comes with waffles. Here's what the pre-order listing has to say about the Stranger Things action figures.
"From the Netflix TV series Stranger Things comes these 7-inch scale action figures! The Stranger Things Action Figures are highly detailed and articulated action figures of iconic characters Eleven and Chief Hopper sculpted from assets taken directly from the series. The figures are in 7-inch scale with 12 points of articulation for dynamic posing and feature show-accurate attires with accessories included. The figures come in a retro-themed packaging. Eleven stands about 5-inches tall, is sculpted from images of actress Millie Bobby Brown, and comes with removable blonde wig, radio, and waffle. Eleven is featured in dress and jacket outfit. Chief Hopper is sculpted from images of actor David Harbour and comes with a removable Sheriff's hat, pistol, and coffee mug. The figure is featured in sheriff's outfit worn by Chief Hopper. Both figures feature a stylized Stranger Things-branded display base and are showcased in retro themed packaging."
McFarlane Toys is known for making a quality product, so these will be something that hardcore Stranger Things fans will want on their shelves. These Eleven and Hopper figures will surely fit in nicely with the many Stranger Things Funko POP toys that are currently available, which you can play with while listening to your Stranger Things soundtrack on vinyl. Or cassette, which will be available at Urban Outfitters soon. The sheer amount of merchandise being made available for Stranger Things should give some idea of just how popular the 80s sci-fi series is.
Stranger Things Season 2, which will hit Netflix on October 31, will actually arrive before these new action figures do. According to the pre-order listing, they will arrive in November. The good news is that the package runs a very reasonable $35.99, which isn't bad at all in the world of high-end action figures. For now, you can check out the packaging for the figures for yourself below and you can pre-order the figures via Entertainment Earth, should you feel so inclined.
