These THE DARK TOWER Action Figures and Dioramas Can Be Your Ka-tet (Exclusive)

As most horror toy collectors know, there has been a distinct lack of anything Stephen King related in action figure form. Pennywise and Jack Torrance are often requested, yet always denied, and it had long been assumed that King in general was reluctant to license out his creations into plastic form. So perhaps we are living in a parallel world now, because the movie adaptation of The Dark Tower is not only getting figures by Diamond Select (that we’re pleased to exclusively debut today), but they’re of some very fan-favorite actors who haven’t really graced us with their fully articulated likenesses before.

Like Idris Elba

…and Matthew McConaughey!

As with all Diamond Select figures, the basic figures by themselves will be available at Toys R Us, while the more deluxe versions—with the backdrops you see above—will hit comic and specialty stores. Sculpted by Gentle Giant, they’re based on actual scans of the actors, and if we know the fan community, we suspect stop-motion Lincoln commercials and faux-James Bond scenes will be popping up online soon after these guys hit retail this fall.

If articulation isn’t your thing, though, and you’d rather just have the best pose possible, Diamond also has PVC dioramas of Elba’s Roland Deschain and McConaughey’s Man in Black.

Roland may kill with his heart, but our hearts are going to be killed if we don’t get our hands on these soon. Both 10-inch tall PVC diorama pieces are sculpted by Rocco Tartamella, and run about $45.

So now that Stephen King clearly doesn’t absolutely veto action figures, what are the odds of any from his back-catalog? Probably slim, as actor likeness rights generally weren’t included in any of his previous movies. But we’d totally settle for some Mist monsters.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.
