Chicken Fried Toys & Fresh Monkey Fiction Announce C.O.P.S. ‘N Crooks Figures


Chicken Fried Toys and Fresh Monkey Fiction have a big announcement today for fans of the 1980’s C.O.P.S. ‘N Crooks line that Hasbro introduced, which was based on the animated series and was the first-ever 6″ Marvel Legends style articulated action figures, a line that was more than a decade ahead of its time. This new offering will see figures in 2023 and 2024, and will be part of their 4″ offerings.

A press release is below:

Chicken Fried Toys (CFT) and Fresh Monkey Fiction (FMF) are pleased to announce a new venture for our companies! CFT will be producing 1:18thscale (modern 4 inch) action figures under license from FMF for their property C.O.P.S -n- Crooks in 2023-2024, and BEYOND!

These modern and fully articulated action figures will have all the posability, and attention to detail that you have come to expect from our Dime Novel Legends and Weird Western Tales offerings. Each figure will be fully decked out in their molded plastic base colors with detailed & fully painted accessories and gear, flesh tone skin, and some will even sport bonus articulation.

The first offering from CFT for this license will be Marshal Sundown, the Texas Lawman, available on later this year. Some of you may have noticed the full color digital photo renders of the sculpt already, but if you haven’t check it out on our social media pages! We are also premiering a new character card art style and layout which is unique to this project and has a retro look with some modern updates.

We are already hard at work on our first assortment of six different character sculpts, and will offer these in pairs of two single-carded figures at a time, with work being done at our second factory partners. These fine manufacturers have already delivered our Weird Western Tales (WWT) preview figure (Crash Site Intruder) and are hard at work on the first 2 pack featuring Cowboy Kringle & the Krampus for Christmas 2023 season. They are also moving into production on a fluffle of rabbits and even a JACKALOPE that will be available very late this year.

Our first full assortment of six characters offers some familiar faces, with two heroes, two villains, and even two drivers! The adventure and excitement are yours to grab. Come join us in celebrating Chicken Fried Toys new license project, and another chance to work with our friends at Fresh Monkey Fiction again! Let’s FIGHT SOME CRIME in a FUTURE TIME!
