Action figures aren’t just for kiddos anymore. The folks at Black Ops Toys proved this back in September when they unveiled one of the controversial American Sniper Chris Kyle. Now, the toymaker Beeline Creative is giving us a grown-up line we can all get behind: Pulp Fiction action figures.
The foul-mouthed miscreants of Tarantino’s 1994 magnum opus have been brought to glorious, miniaturized life. The series includes 13-inch talking figures of characters Jules Winnfield, Vincent Vega, Jimmie Dimmick, and Butch Coolidge. Each comes with recognizable add-ons, like Jimmie’s cup of “serious gourmet shit” coffee and Butch’s samurai sword.
Good luck finding these at your local Toys “R” Us.
Unlike a lot of superhero merchandise out there, these characters’ diabolical antics haven’t been scaled back for their miniaturized forms. The figures are rigged to speak up to 12 explicit, curse-ridden phrases from Quentin Tarantino's masterwork. It was their motor-mouthed delivery of Tarantino's dialogue that made these characters so iconic, after all.
On the touch of a button, the Jules figure will spew such timeless bits as “Mmmmmmm! This is a tasty burger!” and “English, motherfucker, do you speak it?”
The Pulp Fiction action figures are now available for purchase via Amazon, averaging at about $50. However, the Butch Coolidge figure is still only available for pre-order and won’t be ready until the end of April, 2016.
Strangely, a Mia Wallace figure with a detachable syringe is missing from the pack.
