As someone who is normally an ‘in-box’ collector, I can’t tell you how much I LOVE having these classic design styles recreated for this scale. It gives them some extra punch, and uniquely capture the vibe from when those lines were originally released. I love it, and I can’t wait to get my hands on these.

All of the figures revealed for this set are Target Exclusives that will launch this Summer (no word on pre-order date just yet).
