Finding toy memorabilia for many film classics of the '70s and '80s isn't all that difficult. Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, and other franchises brought in massive profits at retail thanks to broad licensing agreements — often amassing higher totals than what their respective movies drew at the box office. But what about the successful flicks that never had a presence at Toys 'R Us? eBay seller popsfartberger has addressed that with his carefully crafted (and packaged) action figures for films that normally may not strike you as a fit for children's toys.

Characters from adult-oriented hits like Taxi Driver, Lethal Weapon, Jaws, Dawn of the Dead, Cobra, and others are offered at prices ranging between $16.95 and $69.95 — presumably based on the intricacy of each figure. They're shipped inside custom, vintage-like packaging that would easily pass as official branding to a casual observer. And while these toys not be an ideal choice for your kids, they could serve as a nice holiday gift for the film buffs in your life.
