Funko Back to the Future Marty McFly ReAction FigureTo say that Marty McFly was a long-awaited action figure is a gross understatement. Fans expected Mattel to make some after announcing that they had the license, but now that it seemingly lapsed and nothing was announced it seems that no, this was to be. Funko brought out excellent Pop! Vinyl figures, while Diamond Select Toys did some bang-up Minimates. This figure is the culmination of decades of expectations and desires, and as such cannot possibly please everybody. I can tell you that it's pretty good, but quality control is a bit of an issue here - if you just want a Marty, go with the Pop! Vinyl. If you love this format, you simply must buy this figure.

As a shorter figure, he fits into the Diamond Select Toys 1:15 scale DeLorean Time Machine - this came out a few years ago and it is a bit of a tight fit, but you can fit him in the driver's seat. Keep in mind that 3 3/4-inch scale figures are roughly 1:18 scale creations, meaning that they were not meant to fit together and the slightly larger car fitting is really just a lucky break.

The 3 5/8-inch figure is more or less like an old Kenner figure, only wearing skinny jeans and unfortunately mine has a weird white mark on his vest. It's just a little wonky - as all good Kenner human figures should be - and he has no problems sitting or standing. The foot holes are roughly 1980s Kenner sized, and the hands are a little different - holding his skateboard is something of a challenge, and it seems kind of small.

The sculpt is good, but not particularly Michael J. Foxey. It's clearly Marty McFly, though, and the figure is quite colorful even for the 1980s. A black watch band is on his left wrist, and there are painted details on his shirt which really bring it to life - and would probably be a one-color item in the 1980s. Despite being quite skinny, the figure otherwise looks more or less like it fell out of a time warp or a garage sale.

The sculpt is good, but the plastic and deco may need some help. The figure lacks the gloss of real Kenner figures, and the flesh is a little translucent so it's not quite what you might want relative to the genuine article. It takes a little work to get him to balance on the skateboard, as the wheels are a little uneven and there's no foot peg on the board. It's an appropriate accessory, but it's just not quite great. It's OK. I wouldn't know what other accessory to give him, but it has the colorful, 1980s charm and looks more like a prototype of an unmade toy than an actual production toy.

I like what they did here - the off-modelness of it is charming, and it looks almost as scrawny as early Luke figures - but it probably could have used a couple of more minutes in the oven. If Funko keeps making these it wouldn't stun me if a subsequent run used improved materials and looked perfect. I appreciate the eyes are even, and the hair seems solid. I hear a lot of people whine about these figures but to be honest, I don't think I could've given Funko many notes to do a better job given the limitations and aesthetics of the era. It's neat. It ain't perfect. I'm eager to see what's next.
