    I think he's the only one who has these toys considering his movies aren't even about Superheroes or Cartoon characters that normally have figures made for them. Here are some..

    Decades ago, the millions upon millions of nerds in the world decided that painted plastic was in. TV and movies took advantage of that with a polymer fist. Tarentino attracts every type of movie fan, including nerds.

    Plus they're the just the right shape, length, and girthiness.

    Rigidity.

    I would like if they made this figure. Raquel, the feisty junkyard owner and the Wolf's soon to be breakfast date from Pulp Fiction. That flannel shirt would look real sweet on an action figure.

    1: People seem to be happy with pointless dust collectors on their shelves. Like they want people to know who they are, except what they're showing is that they are frivolous and misguided.

    2: some people really enjoyed the doll part of childhood and modern nerd culture is a licence to indulge themselves. A pursuit of happiness.

    Can I have the Salma Hayek one from From Dusk Till Dawn? It's for a friend, but I'm going to keep it next to my Costco-sized tub of lotion on my bedside table.
