Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Action Figures

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was a spoof  musical horror black comedy film released in 1978 and was in the style of a 1950’s and 1960’s Horror B-Movie flick which quickly gained cult status.

The unexpected success of the movie led to not one but three sequels! It gained such a cult following that there was even an animated TV Series produced by Fox TV between 1990-92.

It is also a little-known fact that the sequel, released in 1990, was one of George Clooney’s early movies.

These action figures are probably among some of the strangest and weirdest that Mattel have ever released and whether it was some weird quirk of the marketing department, a short lapse from sanity or its cult status that inspired Matte a line of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes action figures was released in 1991.

The Mattel action figures however, were not based on the movies but the animated TV series instead, which ran from 1990-92 on Fox. The line consisted of nine double packs of poseable PVC figures based on the animated TV Series, with each pack featuring a human and a man-eating tomato from the series.

One of the lines biggest attractions however was that they were produced in the 3 ½ inch scale, which had become the standard by then. This meant that they were compatible with most of Mattel’s other figure lines produced at the time, and even Kenner’s Star Wars figures. Just imagine the scene, Darth Vader being attacked by a horde of Killer Tomatoes on the Death Star!

Although quite whacky and weird, like the movies, these also seemed to have gained a certain amount of a cult status. This is probably due to them being fairly easy to find, cheap to buy and great fun to play with!

However, recently these seem to have been gaining in popularity on the secondary market and generally sell for between $30-$150 depending on the character and condition etc.
