Fans of the cult classic film, Time Bandits, directed by Terry Gilliam, can peruse a new line of officially licensed action figures from Plastic Meatball.
The Time Bandits collection is modeled after and pays homage to the classic Kenner style of action figures from the 1970s and 1980s. Each figure is 3-3/4-inches in scale and features five points of articulation. The figures are mounted on retro-nostalgic packaging that includes branding and stills from the movie.
Wave 1 includes three characters from the film: Evil, Randall, and Og (as a pig). Evil comes equipped with a gas mask, while Randall is outfitted with the Super Being’s map. In deference to Time Bandit’s dark tone, the action figures are marketed for adult collectors ages 14 and up.
Thanks to its broad licensing agreement, Plastic Meatball plans to continue developing and releasing new characters from the movie and other retro collectible items, including apparel and puzzles inspired by the fantasy adventure.
All three figures are available for order directly from the Plastic Meatball e-store at a cost of $14.99 USD each.
