McFarlane Toys’ Movie Maniacs line is taking a major detour, including the likes of Ted Lasso, Bugs Bunny and Harry Potter.
McFarlane Toys is resurrecting its classic Movie Manics line, complete with…practically no movie maniacs.
The lineup, which Todd McFarlane unveiled on Twitter, includes the Wicked Witch of the West, Bugs Bunny, Harry Potter, and Ted Lasso. Notice anything strange about this wave of Movie Maniacs? The Wicked Witch of the West is the only inclusion that even gets close to qualifying–she does threaten to kill a dog and has no problem lighting a scarecrow on fire. Bugs Bunny, Harry Potter and Ted Lasso, on the other hand, are straight-up protagonists, only one of which is even considered a major movie character.
In his Twitter post, McFarlane–who himself doesn’t seem terribly interested in the properties being tied into the once-defunct Movie Maniacs label–shows off each box and figure, hinting that the entire promotion is more of a plug for the 100th anniversary of Warner Bros. Each figure comes with a backdrop, a base and a card with a certificate of authenticity, and a box with one more surprise. Bugs Bunny (in superhero garb) is limited to 7,500 pieces, the Wicked Witch and Harry Potter are both at 10,000 and Ted Lasso will have 20,000 available.
