‘Golden Girls’ Action Figures Coming To Target

This is so exciting!

Just a couple of weeks back, we told you about a “Golden Girls” play coming to New York City. And now, Sophia, Rose, Dorothy and Blanche are coming to a Target store near you in a box—as a set of 3 3/4″ fully posable action figures. (What, no “kung fu grip” on any of these?)

These sets were initially made available for sale at this past weekend’s “Comic-Con” pop culture shebang in New York City.

Mark Robben, director of marketing at Funko, told ABC News, “The response to our ‘Golden Girls’ products has been wild. We almost weren’t prepared for the excitement. We created these as a passion project initially, and were blown away when it started trending on social media.”

(Cynical disclaimer here—of course they knew these things would blow up! Hello Giggles says they’ll be in Target stores this week, and you can’t ramp up production to satisfy demand in a weekend. But you knew that.)

CBS News says the price tag will be $24.99, with “orders shipping October 10!” Target online still shows them as “unavailable.” Mashable says the sets will be a Target online exclusive.

The fellow in this video already has a set. Let’s see what the Girls look like. (And if crochet figures are more your style…)
