Looks like Funko is doing a line of Dark Crystal figures as part of their retro 3 3/4 ReAction line.
I've managed to resist the ReAction stuff so far, despite some cool figs (especially the Universal Monsters, Alien and Big Trouble inLittle China stuff), but these may cause me to break down and get some.
Also, Funko (and not Mattel or DC Direct) is doing a line of Suicide Squad figures based on the movie. Haven't seen the movie, no desire to, but these figures actually look really well done...

Wow - I don't think there have ever been a line of Dark Crystal figures before - these look great. I typically don't like figures that have '80's-era sculpts since I like more advanced sculpting techniques. However, in this case I think the sculpts really fit this line.
It makes me think of what an '80's Dark Crystal toy line would have looked if anything like this would have been released back in the day.

While I think a lot of the licenses that Funko makes in the classic Kenner style look good, a lot of them don't. Really wish they had just stopped with the unreleased Alien figures from the 70's
