    It really is a head-scratcher, especially considering Richard Dreyfuss did allow for Funko to use his license, not only for the ReAction, but for the Pops.

    Perhaps it is easier dealing with estates of actors who have passed away?

    ^^ possibly.
    And for NECA to continue the line while missing one of the three primary members...I wonder if they felt it was a risky move, hence, the reason it appears they hit these two figures totally out of the ballpark in quality.

    I believe that Funko didn't have likeness rights, they pushed the envelope there with all the distinct tells the character had.

    Oh, I hadn't considered that. Interesting! And of course generic card art with the shark instead of the characters would support that.

    One thing NECA could do, if they're making the shark, is make a Hooper in scuba with shark cage... Might be kinda cool.

    Bingo. Instant solution to bringing the 3rd part of the cast to fruition without paying a license. Ha!

    That's a pretty novel solution.

    If they included Ben Gardner's head... sales would increase.

    The Mayor has the greatest line in the film: "As we all know Amity means friendship".
    I'm laughing just writing it.
    If a Mego figure of God did not exist, it would be necessary for EMCE to invent him.

    Are these out yet? I don't buy much new stuff, but I love these.
