Last week, McFarlane Toys teased their new line of action figures based on the beloved 1987 film The Princess Bride, and it seemed as though fans were really excited about them. That makes sense since the figures look fantastic. McFarlane also revealed that the pre-orders would arrive this week, and they made good on that promise.
Indeed, pre-orders for the McFarlane Toys figures of Westley Dread Pirate Roberts, Princess Buttercup, Inigo Montoya, and Fezzik are live here at Entertainment Earth now priced at $24.99 to $39.99. The figures are 7-inch scale, which explains why Andre the Giant’s Fezzik towers above the rest of the cast.
Each of The Princess Bride figures features up to 22 points of articulation, and character specific accessories like swords for Westley and Inigo, and fabric skirt for Princess Buttercup. However, Fezzig has the best accessories of all – a peanut and a rock.
Based on William Goldman’s novel of the same name, The Princess Bride debuted in 1987 to critical acclaim. Since then, many fans have marked it as one of the best films ever released and in 2016, the movie was added to the National Film Registry. Other than Elwes, the movie also starred Robin Wright, Peter Falk, Fred Savage, Betsy Brantley, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, and others.
In total, The Princess Bride ended up making a modest $30.86 million at the box office. It was much more successful critically, eventually earning an Oscar nomination the year of its release, and has gone on to become a celebrated classic.
