TF13: Factory Entertainment Archer
Super Spy Finally Gets The Figure Treatment...
If you’re not watching Archer on FX it’s possible you may not have a sense of humor. Following the exploits of Sterling Archer, Lana Kane, and the rest of the gang at the secret intelligence agency ISIS, Archer is one of the funniest shows on TV, let alone animated ones. And while the show is currently in its 4th season, we have yet to get toys from it... that is, until now. At Toy Fair Factory Entertainment had on display several of its upcoming Archer product (all in early stage prototypes), and they’re all awesome. Deluxe Shakems (Factory’s answer to the bobblehead) are high quality authentically proportioned statues with movement and sound chips. We got a demonstration of Lana’s sound clips and they include some of the best and most memorable moments from the show... including the dirty ones! Look for several Archer characters including different versions of Sterling and Lana later this year.
Also on deck are Archer action figures! Not much is known about these just yet, but Factory Entertainment did have an info sheet with a rough render and a few key facts: the Archer figure will be in 6 inch scale, have 18 points of articulation, and come with accessories that may or may not include a pistol, travel bag, martini shaker, and glasses. Factory is also bringing the fans a series of plush toys based on characters and items from the show like Sterling, Lana, Baby Seamus, and Pam’s Dolphin Puppet!

Note: while there are "No Photos Please" signs visible in the Archer section of their booth, Factory Entertainment did authorize us to take photos and share them.
