Big Lebowski Action Figures Coming in October

Like most cult classics, The Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski is one of those movies that has a great cast of truly bizarre characters, situations, and dialogue. And what better way to immortalize such a memorable movie than with some collectible memorabilia? (Which is, of course, the grown-up term for “toys”.) A company called Bif Bang Pow! has landed the rights to produce a line of action figures based on the movie, and this October they will release likenesses of both Walter and The Dude himself. Need I say more?

As far as I can tell, the two figures are available only as a single package called the “Urban Achiever Set”, and come with a variety of kick ass accessories including bowling bags, Cynthia’s Pomeranian, a White Russian, and Donny’s ashes in a coffee can. I was almost sold on these until I saw the design… they’re done in a cartoony style, not unlike the Clerks Inaction figures. Not to bring down the party, but personally I would have preferred a more realistic McFarlane style likeness. They will also be releasing two Big Lebowski Bobble Heads (The Dude in Bowling Shirt and The Dude in Hoodie) this July. The Urban Achiever set will go for $33.99, while the Bobble Heads are $12.99 each. You can order these fine products over at Entertainment Earth.

    i would have prefered realistic as well, but these dont look that bad and if the price is right, hey, i’ll take what i can get.

  • I third the realistic sentiment… that’s a shame.

    On an unrelated note, did I miss the memo on taking away our precious fanboy polls? Who doesn’t like polls? Come on!

  • Oops, sorry Zedd, we’re currently rethinking how we want to do the polls, the top 5 on the podcast and the open forum fridays. I’d like to combine them into a question of the week or something possibly. But don’t worry, it’s not gone for good.

  • The dude looks alright, but for my money Walter doesn’t look enough like Goodman. I have to admit that those accessories sound like they’ll sweeten the deal, though.
