You Are Reading :10 Best Rick & Morty Action Figures To Collect
Rick and Morty has quickly become one of the most popular animated series of its generation and it seems to ignite passion in its audience in a way that few other shows are capable of. Rick and Morty balances brilliant stories with entertaining characters that exhibit a passion for science fiction and genre storytelling.
The series has evolved to a point where there’s a cast of hundreds comprised of multiple species across various universes, which is actually perfect for something like action figures. Rick and Morty has released a number of action figures that celebrate the series’ weirdness, but there are some figures that are more notable than others.
10 Noob Noob (Funko POP!)
One of the great joys of Rick and Morty is how the series manages to make even the tiniest of throwaway characters resonate in major ways. “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender” is Rick and Morty’s riff on superheros, but out of the whole Vindicator team, there’s only a toy for the group’s most maligned member, Noob Noob. Noob Noob goes stuck with lowly janitorial duties, but Rick constantly bonds with him and sees him as the silver lining in the superhero group. His odd character design becomes even better in the form of a Funk POP! figure.
9 Scary Terry (Funko)
Rick and Morty is at its best when it finds clever and unconventional angles on genre staples or pop culture figures, and Scary Terry is an early example of the series showing how playfully reflexive it can get. Scary Terry is a parody of A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger, but the vicious figure is highly emotional and wears his heart on his sleeve. Scary Terry hasn’t become a recurring presence in the series, but this action figure speaks to the character’s popularity and it’s a fun, odd addition.
8 Krombopulos Michael (Funko POP!)
Some characters on Rick and Morty need to makes a few appearances before they really connect with audiences, but Krombopulos Michael was instantly a hit. He’s exactly the kind of character that’s deserving of an action figure due to his insect-like appearance and memorable role.
Krombopulos Michael is a highly skilled assassin who has a very lackadaisical approach to the slew of murders that he commits. He’s a fascinating and hilarious mix of extreme sensibilities. A distinct Funko POP! for Krombopulos was released at 2017’s New York Comic Con, which makes this figure more of a rarity.
7 Squanchy (Funko)
Squanchy is the kind of character that feels so specific to Rick and Morty and acts as a celebration of the show’s wild nature. Squanchy is a force of chaos that manages to somehow be a bad influence to a character that’s as id-driven as Rick. Squanchy makes for a well-done figure that articulates the vacant madness of the creature. The various lines of Funko Rick and Morty action figures also contain separate pieces for Build-A-Figure characters. Squanchy’s figure contains the head and torso for the Krombopulos Michael Build-A-Figure, which kind of makes it seem like Squanchy’s dismembered the assassin.
6 Mr. Poopy Butthole (Funko)
Rick and Morty introduces tons of ridiculous supporting characters who may only get a few lines, but are able to develop lives of their own. Mr. Poopy Butthole is one of Rick and Morty’s most successful examples of this. The character’s earnestness and fragility continue to be running jokes in the series. It’s only fair to honor this character by getting his action figure, which even includes a cane to highlight the trauma that he’s endured. Mr. Poopy Butthole is also packaged with the Snowball portion of the character’s Build-A-Figure, which is practically a second figure in itself.
5 Wasp Rick (Funko POP!)
Rick and Morty has really leaned into the alternate dimensions aspect of the series and some episodes really indulge in the more absurd versions of Rick and Morty from different universes that have fueled a lot of great fan art. “Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat” features the Wasp Universe, complete with Wasp Rick who’s at odd with the Rick from Universe C-137.
It’s such a niche character, but the Funko POP! figure really goes above and beyond with its design. It’s both silly and disgusting and an oddity that’s the best of the many Rick variants that exist.
4 Berserker Squanchy (Funko POP!)
Squanchy is already one of the more ridiculous and wild characters to appear in Rick and Morty, but he undergoes a fate in “The Wedding Squanchers” that pushes him to even more outrageous places. Squanchy gets exposed to a mysterious green substance that transforms him into a gigantic Berserker version of himself. It’s an incredibly strange sight that becomes even weirder when it’s captured in the form of a Funko POP! figure. There’s a lot of depth given to this wild version of a fan-favorite character.
3 Pickle Rick In Rat Suit (Funko)
There are a lot of trends that have caught on because of Rick and Morty and there’s a level of enthusiasm behind the one-off Pickle Rick episode like nothing else in the series. Pickle Rick has been merchandised out in many different capacities, but the most original take is done with the Funko action figure. The figure is incredibly detailed and allows attachable weaponry along with his giant laser. However, the best touch is that it comes with a dead rat mask for Pickle Rick to wear in an attempt to make the costume complete.
2 Tinkles/Ghost In A Jar (Funko POP!)
“Ricksy Business” creates dozens, if not hundreds, of new characters that invade the Sanchez household. Tinkles and Ghost in a Jar are two of the many ridiculous entities that invade the memories of the Sanchez family. Mr. Poopy Butthole comes out of the experience, but Tinkles and Ghost in a Jar are two of the more forgettable creatures. This action figure duo stands out not only for the extremely niche nature of the characters, but also because it’s a Funko POP! that was exclusive to 2017’s San Diego Comic-Con, which makes it an even more impressive item to own.
1 Snowball Build-A-Figure (Funko)
One of the best and earliest moments from Rick and Morty is when the Sanchez’ docile dog, Snowball, benefits from Rick’s technology to trigger a canine rebellion. It helps establish how the series will play with tone and this mech version of Snowball is equals parts adorable and terrifying. The Snowball figure deserves serious bragging rights because it’s not sold on its own, but rather assembled by collecting all of the other Rick and Morty Funko figures from that series. The Build-A-Figure idea is creative and it actually makes sense for a character like Snowball and his robot suit.
