The Golden Girls may seem like unlikely action figures, but it seems they are all over the Internet right now. The Golden Girls was a popular sitcom in the ’80s when action figures were also very popular. Who would have ever thought that four older ladies who sat around eating cheesecake would become popular action figures decades later?
However, The Golden Girls is one of the most popular vintage sitcoms. Fans are flocking to buy Golden Girls-themed accessories and nostalgia items. All of this talk about The Golden Girls just makes me want to re-watch the show! But, first, let’s take a look at their action figures.
Take a look at the ‘Golden Girls’ action figures
Rose (Betty White) seems to look the most like the real-life character, perhaps because she is still alive and very present in our culture. The figures are about 8-inches and have pretty generic body types. In fact, Dorothy’s (Bea Arthur) uses a man’s upper body with a padded bra, likely because she was so much taller than the other ladies.
Sophia (Estelle Getty) is the only figure to come with accessories other than clothes. She comes with a cheesecake with one slice removed and a handbag that opens up.
The company NECA created these action figures and they are heading to Target. NECA realized that many action figure collectors simply want to collect their favorite characters and showcase them.
I couldn’t find the action figures on Target’s website just yet, but they are being sold on Amazon! They are going for around $34-$40 each, so they are not exactly cheap for their small size. However, big fans and collectors will probably pay just about anything for their favorite Golden Girl.
