So, this week is the New York Toy Fair and there have been lots of news and reveals. One of the more exciting reveals was that Entertainment Earth and Bif Bang Pow! are releasing action figures and mini-mates based on the cast of the hit CBS show Big Bang Theory. Let's start with the 3.75 inch figures. It looks like this set will feature all of the characters from the most recent cast lineup, including multiple versions of everyone's favorite neurotic room-mate. It is not clear how these will be packaged or whether they will sell them as a set. The second part of this reveal is that these companies will also team up with Diamond Select Toys to issue a set of Mini-Mates based on these same characters. So far, it looks like these will also feature the same characters including different versions of Sheldon. Please keep in mind that the pictures included in this article are pictures of suggested prototypes and not necessarily the final product shipped. But it has been my experience that when they release pictures at the Toy Fair those are usually the final products. As of right now, they have not said how much these figures will be. Keep your eyes peeled for these figures to probably be released sometime this year. I know that waiting for figures to be released is harder than watching Raj trying to talk to a girl. But remember, like always, that these are not dolls.......they are ACTION FIGURES!!!
