Boss Fight Studio Announces Popeye Figures

Boss Fight Studio, creator of fan favorite action figures, announced today they had acquired the license to make action figures and collectibles of the iconic Popeye The Sailor comics and cartoons. The deal, brokered by FanGirl Consulting and Brand Management, with King Features Syndicate, is the latest in a great lineup of cult classic brands already in the Boss Fight arsenal, including Flash Gordon and The Phantom.

“Like so many, I grew up watching the classic Popeye animated cartoons,” says Andrew Franks, partner and art director at Boss Fight. “As an adult, I was drawn back to Popeye by E.C. Segar’s brilliant original comic strip. To be able to bring these characters to life as fully poseable toys is a dream.”

“This will be the fourth license we work with Boss Fight Studio on and we know their approach will bring these toys to life and quickly become fan favorites,” says Jarred M. Goro, VP of North American licensing at King Features.

“We approach design with aesthetics but also functionality,” says Franks. “Toys should be able to be posed into any scene your imagination can dream of.”

Founded in 2013, Boss Fight Studio is known for their highly-articulated, poseable action figures. The first wave of Popeye Classics action figures is expected to hit shelves late summer 2021, and will include Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto, and Castor Oyl. The Popeye Classics figures will bring a new cult favorite to life and be a great complement to the Boss Fight arsenal of licenses.

“We’re digging deep into the comic strips to deliver Popeye toys like you’ve never seen before! Authentic styling, super articulation and great accessories – even packing in smaller characters like Swee’ Pea, Eugene The Jeep and Bernice The Whiffle Hen as bonuses,” added Franks. “We can’t wait to bring these toys to market. We’re sure they will delight Popeye fans, and celebrate the rich 90-year legacy of these iconic characters.”

The designs are simple but they knew how to transfer them as a figure, Popeye in particular looks very good.

Personally I can't wait to see Bluto's Final Deco!

That's a big box for a relatively small figure.

Everyones favorite Sailor Man and his crew are finally coming to highly articulated figure form! Drawing inspiration from the early classic Segar comic strips in an exclusive to BBTS Black & White deco, these figures are sure to delight all Popeye fans! These 1/12 scale figures stand between 4-6 inches depending on the character.Popeye comes ready for action with his spinach can for power, alternate heads, alternate hands, removable hat, and his little boy kid, Swee'Pea! You can pre-order this now at our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

It looks good overall just not a fan of the black and white look.

Today they showed off some early concept photos of their Classic Popeye figures. The figures are said to be in the neighborhood of 5" tall. Shown are Popeye, Olive Oyl, Bluto, and Castor Oyl. Look for these to be released later this summer and stay-tuned for more Popeye reveals from them coming soon.

These figures look awesome overall.

Guess it depends on your idea of market size. These are being put out by a small company with likely small production runs straight to online. So we are talking about a fairly small market in the overall scheme of things.

Very true. Very true.

These figures are quality for sure. I'm just surprised there's enough of a market for Popeye figures that are so high end.
