Let nobody ever again say that Princess Bride action figures are inconceivable. If indeed they ever did. McFarlane Toys just revealed what fans hope will be wave 1 of the toy line inspired by the 1987 cult classic. Westley as Dread Pirate Roberts, Fezzik, Inigo Montoya, and Princess Buttercup look to be fully poseable with movie-accurate accessories. Buttercup even includes a fabric skirt. It’s not clear what scale they will come in, but if it’s 6-inch, they can integrate with McFarlane’s previous Game of Thrones line. If it’s 7-inch, they’ll play well with The Witcher.
Here’s the full image, released on McFarlane Toys’ social channels today:
Expect preorder information and more specifics next week.

Obviously, fans hope for a second wave, as this one leaves out some key characters. Prince Humperdink, Count Rugen, Miracle Max, and, well, a Princess Bride action figure line without Vizzini would be…there’s a word for it. One that does mean what we think it means. Plus who doesn’t want a good custom base for My Dinner With Andre toys?
Screaming eels and ROUSes would also be welcome additions.
