Here They Come… THE MONKEES Action Figures

Published:

Though the series arrived 10 years before I was born, I found myself enamored with THE MONKEES during re-runs on WFLD Channel 32 here in Chicago – the same place were I first experienced many cool things as a kid (1966 BATMAN, THE GREEN HORNET, GREAT SPACE COASTER, etc.). I’m not sure what the current status is of new listeners finding their music (I’ve played it for The Rock Daughters on vinyl), or new viewers experiencing the show, but the folks at Figures Toy Company are releasing several different series’ of MONKEES action figures, all done in a 1970s Mego-style, much like they’ve done with THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, KISS and the DC Comics SUPER FRIENDS. Announced over a year ago, these were actually supposed to have been released last Fall, but they’re coming to Entertainment Earth this Spring…

THE MONKEES as THE MONKEEMEN

THE MONKEES 8″ Series includes Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork in three complete costume sets. There’s tuxedos, red band suits and “Monkeemen” superhero costumes, all from their first season adventures.

THE MONKEES 12″ Series are simply larger versions of the band suit versions…

These figures are expected to start shipping within the next couple of weeks, and according to Figures Toy Company, Mike Nesmith will include his trademark stocking cap.
