Unless you’ve ignored it completely, then you have at least absorbed a little bit of the hype around the Netflix show Stranger Things. They currently have 2 seasons already completed, and a third filming soon. The show follows a group of kids from Hawkins, Indiana, as they deal with the odd events that have suddenly been plaguing their small town in the 1980’s. That’s an over-simplification for sure, as the show features themes from horror, to science fiction, to 80’s style teen comedy. The show has built up its following by mixing in great atmosphere, solid writing, retro flare and strong performances from Winona Ryder and the child-heavy cast. It’s not perfect, but when each season hits its stride, there’s a lot of fun to be had.
Today we’re taking a look at some of the McFarlane Toys figures based on the show. The second assortment of Stranger Things 7″ Scale Action Figures are now available in stores. The first wave, with Hopper and Eleven was released late last year. The newest assortment includes 7″ scale versions of Dustin Henderson and Lucas Sinclair. They’re joined on toy shelves by the new 10″ tall Demogorgon Deluxe Figure. The line will continue to grow with additional figures in the near future, as we’ve seen previews of multiple new figures. McFarlane toys sent along wave 2 for us to check out. We brought in the series 1 figures as well, and have a full gallery to check out. Read on for my thoughts and 50 photos of the figures.
