I guess they were technically doing it for a while with the Twilight Zone figures, but these look more directly like the Funko stuff we see announced on a regular basis – and even an attempt to one-up by adding more articulation, and stylized faces that look a little bit like some of the actors.

I believe that’s the first figure of movie Aura ever made, and it only makes me want a more realistic one with her pet dwarf Fellini.
