Jaws ReAction Figures from Funko

The Love Boat

Here's a few photos I took of the Jaws ReAction figures from Funko.  I have all the standard figures from this series: Brody, Hooper, Quint, and the Shark.  There's also a limited set that comes with a bloody version of the Shark and Quint, and Quint has an alternate headsculpt with a headband instead of a hat.  I don't have that one, but if you're a big Jaws fan, it's probably worth it to track one down.

I think this is a really great group of figures, even though it's just a bunch of dudes in street clothes.  I think it's because each figure is sculpted really well, and closely resembles the character from the movie.  But what I really love is the inclusion of the shark.  That's what really pushes this series over the top.  The shark has a hinged mouth, and you can fit an action figure inside him to make it look like the shark is eating him, which is fun, fun, fun.  I really hope this is the direction Funko takes ReAction in the future, with better likenesses and fun playset-type accessories, like the shark.

I do have one complaint, because my Quint figure's head snapped off while I was taking these photos.  And I wasn't being rough with it at all, it just seems like the neck peg was made out of some really cheap corroded plastic.  Hopefully my bad Quint neck was just a random case of bad luck, and not a major problem with figures.  I haven't heard of this happening to anyone else, but I have had an uncomfortable amount of quality control issues with ReAction figures, so I don't know...  But still, I really like these figures as a whole.  Check out my pictures of them after the break!
