Action Figure Review: Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid ReAction by Funko
Height: 3 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel neck.
Accessories: Bansai Tree
Non-Scalper Price: $10
*Like most of this year's ReAction figures, Mr. Miyagi is made from a sturdy plastic that feels durable just like the toys you remember from your childhood. He has the famous 5 points of articulation that was popular in vintage action figures from the late 70's/early 80's and whuch Hasbro for some reason thinks is appropriate for it's modern Star Wars line. Zing! Everything works fine with Mr. Miyagi, however.
* I think Funko has really found their stride this year as all of their sculpts have been quite good. Managing to walk a fine line between vintage charm and accurate character likenesses can be tough but I think they've nailed it. Mr. Miyagi is definitely not a visually complex character but his basic outfit looks sharp and the headsculpt definitely is recognizable. I think most folks could look at this figure and no who it's supposed to represent.
* I really dig the little bonsai tree that Mr. Miyagi comes with. It's a cool little piece that definitely fits the character and is rather unusual. I've never owned an action figure that came with a bonsai tree, so that's quite an achievement, Funko!
Jack Burton, Leeloo, Quint, Eric Draven, Admiral Ackbar, and the Professor. He's a fun ReAction figure to own and I really like him. Particularly the bonsai tree. I'm totally digging that! I've seen him on sale at Toys 'R Us just this past week so if you haven't picked him up yet, shop around and get a deal, reader-san!
