Not quite retro, but Stranger Things is based in the 80s so kinda go with me on this.
Having bumped into and then binge watched both series over the Christmas period, I started to look out for any toys that are based on the show – and guess what, there are a few. The postman brought the a 7″ Eleven figure for me yesterday – all carded and looking very nice. This is not going to be opened – I figure it would like nicer on display in the card, and who knows what these things will be worth in the future (probably 59p in a bargain bin!).
The figure itself is very detailed and depicts ‘Elle’ as she looked in series one with shaven hair and a mucky pink dress. There are a few items that come with the figure including a wig, a walkie talkie and different shaped hands – you know, she did the Star Wars force grip when doping some ‘magic’ in the show.
It seems also you have to be over 12 to play with the figure (check out the rating in the top left) – I should be OK.
There is another figure that is also currently out of Chief Hopper, that is currently on order. Also for 2018, expect to see Dustin, Lucas, Mike and Will figures appear which I am sure I will get and show here on the site.
If you are fan of the show, this comes highly recommended – they go for £22+ at present on Amazon and E-bay.
