It is safe to say we are living in the age of Keanu Reeves. From John Wick to stunning an E3 audience with his surprise appearance in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, the actor has become one of the few things people agree we need more of. Well, McFarlane Toys is giving us just that in the form of two figures of his Cyberpunk character Johnny Silverhand, plus a Male-V action figure.
McFarlane Toys has announced a three-year licensing deal that will produce several lines of Cyberpunk 2077 figures. The timeframe suggests it’s a possibility future DLC characters might make it into toy shelves along with the main cast as well as alternate version of Johnny Silverland.
The plethora of high-tech character designs we’ve already seen in trailers proves this license is ripe with action figures just waiting to be made. Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand character gets first billing, which is a no-brainer, to be honest.
Johnny Silverhand will come in two versions, a 7-inch figure with 22 points of articulation going for $24.99 and a 12-inch posable statue priced at $39.99. The Male-V figure comes with same features as the 7-inch Keanu and goes for the same price.
The smaller figures come with an assortment of items, all either shown in the trailers or confirmed as part of the game world. Male-V comes with a base, a katana, a Militech Saratoga pistol, and a Kang Tao-Dian submachine gun. 7-inch Silverhand includes a bottle, a guitar, and a very metal “Sign of the Horns” hand.
The posable statue seems to be the most interesting item of the bunch. It comes with an electric guitar that can be used to style the character and its poses. The 12-incher captures some of the story surrounding Keanu Reeves’ character in the game. Johnny Silverhand is the leading man behind Refused, a Swedish rock band in the Cyberpunk universe. Although, the latest game trailers suggest he’s also an integral part of the larger mystery pushing the narrative forward.
If you’re wondering if this is McFarlane Toys’ first Keanu figure, it’s not. The company had already turned another one of the actor’s other iconic characters into a toy: Neo from The Matrix. Neo figures are commonly on display and for sale in comic conventions and they go from ridiculously priced to more sensibly priced. Matrix figures tended to recreate specific scenes from the movie, be it Trinity flipping off the wall with a gun in each hand or Neo dodging bullets in a rooftop. If you desperately need a Keanu figure in your life, there’s already some out there.
Both the Cyberpunk 2077 game and the new action figures will be released in Spring 2020.
