So in addition to the action figure wall, Target now has a freestanding, in-the-aisle table of Stranger Things merchandise. It has t-shirts, Garbage Pail Kids versions of characters, tie-in books, and the action figures. Placement of this table is random so look around for it if you are looking for the figures and don’t see them on the usual wall.

I just picked up the Hopper bundled with the cassette at Walmart, it was in the electronics clearance area marked down to $10. Not sure if this is going to be widespread or if it was a one-off error, Walmart makes some bizarre and accidental clearance choices sometimes. I haven't opened him up yet, but I am now more interested in getting an Eleven to go with him. Even though they don't look good at all.

Man, I don't understand this line. Eddie looks great, if they all looked as good and actually came with stuff-- anything, then they might be worth asking price.

The first two figures are really cheap on amazon right now, I'm definitely considering picking them up.

Eddie is an odd choice before so many core characters, and I say that having finished the new episodes and really enjoyed his character.

Ordered the “Upside-Down Glow Demogorgon” - - which has a different paint scheme than the original pink one.

Risky ordering this from Amazon because the top of the figure is completely unprotected by Bandai’s tray-like box. The head and petals can be broken in transit if Amazon ships it in a plastic bag rather than a box. But it appears that there’s one in stock near me, so it will be shipped via an Amazon delivery van, not the postal service. Hoping it will make it even if they use a bag.

This is just a repaint of the 7” one with limited shoulder articulation, not the new large one with multiple joints. The glow paint scheme is actually grey with some kind of clear coat. Looks very slimy and disgusting. The first few photos on Amazon’s photos are too bright - only the last three photos, of the figure in the box, show off what it really looks like: a dark grey.

Oh wow, didnt know they made an Eddie. Will have to get him for sure. Hoping they make Vecna eventually. I really like his design...reminds me of a Yasushi Nirasawa-type character.

Characters from season 4 I’d buy in figure form:

Max - obvious bestseller
Murray - could be a runaway bestseller or a peg warmer, can’t predict!

I’d consider the other characters but those are must-haves.

Yikes, I was going to pick up the Demobat for my shelf. Man, that is one solid, unarticulated, barely painted chunk of plastic for $18

Honestly all these Bandai Stranger Things figures are grossly overpriced. I got a Demobat and it is one of the worst offenders. About the same price as a McFarlane figure…
Worth about $5 tops

Anyone have the Eddie figure? How does he scale to the McFarlane figures?

How the hell can you make Eddie and not give him his guitar?

Now available from BBTS as well, https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/ ... ils/211409

I'm kind of thrown off by how red the figure is. I guess it was mostly lighting, but I picture him as more blue-gray.

Cool news about Vecna- was hoping they'd make him eventually. Haven't picked up any of the figures so far, but I'd consider a Vecna, especially if he scales with the McFarlane figures. Didn't realize until looking at that figure how much he reminds me of a mini Tyrant from Resident Evil. The monotone, featureless body, the one larger hand. He's just missing some bulging veins. Thought he was a really cool villain this season.
