McFarlane's Movie Maniacs Adds More Non-Maniacs

McFarlane Movie Maniacs Logo
Yes, folks, the tears are real. Some years back, McFarlane Toys announced a relaunch of their legendary Movie Maniacs action figure line. The fact that the announcement came with no hint of a release schedule or a nudge toward character selection didn't bother die-hard fans much, as the sight of that logo on the walls of their Toy Fair booth alone was enough to generate excitement. Flash forward to 2023 and McFarlane proudly announces their first wave of modern Movie Maniacs, kicking things off with.... Bugs Bunny, Harry Potter, The Wicked Witch of the West, and the genuinely terrifying ....Ted Lasso. McFarlane clarified that rather than returning to the depths to explore horror's most fiendish fiends, their new Movie Maniacs would celebrate 100 years of Warner Brother's movie icons. So...why the moniker "Maniacs"? I'm gonna guess the answer is "Why not?"

Now Idle Hands presents the next series of MOVIE MANIACS...

McFarlane Movie Maniacs 2023 Series 2

Neo from The Matrix

Sloth from The Goonies

Gandalf from Lord of the Rings

Alan Garner from The Hangover

This is listed as a 6 inch figure line, due to ship in July. No word if the line continues to be non-posable. If it does, there will be nothing to stop McFarlane from exploring licenses other companies are continually making action figures for...like Gremlins! Skies the limit with a Warner Bros license like this.
