The Wait Is Over: Back To The Future And Princess Bride Precious Moments Figurines

August 21, 2018

These are the Back To The Future and Princess Bride Precious Moments figurines available from The Bradford Exchange ($100 for Marty and the DeLorean, $40 apiece for the Princess Bride characters). Man, my mom used to collect the heck out of Precious Moments figurines. I was raised with those things. Also: Longaberger baskets. Still, it's a shame they didn't include Fezzik or Prince Humperdinck or Count Rugen or Miracle Max with the Princess Bride characters. Maybe they'll come out in series two. Or maybe I'll have no choice but to mod some of my mom's existing Precious Moments figurines into those characters. "Do and die." Ha, sometimes I think she loves those things more than she loves me. "Well start thinking it all the time, because it's true." What do they do that I don't?! "Bring me joy." That's it, I'm leaving. "It's spaghetti night." I'm staying.

Keep going for a closeup of Marty as well as the Princess Bride crew.

Thanks to Melissa FC, who agrees Precious Moments are the best moments.

    I never really understood the point of collecting mass produced garbage. Or having shelves specifically dedicated to your collections of mass produced garbage.

    I don't really buy anything though so... I think I might be an outlier.

    I badly wish to break these.

    I didn't realize Precious Moments was still a thing. I suppose they aren't which is why they are entering the Pop Culture world to stay relevant…

    I was drug to the Precious Moments village and wedding island place in Missouri as a kid. At that time you could get married at this compound that had Victorian houses you could stay the night in that looked so beautiful, this home/museum and this really cool castle he built for his grand kids on an island in a lake in the backyard.

    Very magical. That is until the last part of the tour....

    There was this one room on "how it's made" and there were scores of pictures and depressing videos of sweaty south american workers looking like they want to die packing these things into Marlboro cigarette boxes to ship them. Even as a kid I remember thinking that this part of the tour looked NOTHING like the rest of the tour as if the person who did this hated that Sam Butcher guy.

    Now those things are ruined for me because I can't forget the pictures of long thatch roof open air carport things with unsteady looking long tables crammed with sweaty workers with cigs hanging out of their starved mouths shoving Precious moments figurines into cigarette boxes.

    You're welcome.

    Better than Funko's

    i'm only just realizing that these were the proto Funko Pop! Vinyl figures. both equally terrifying.

    I mean, I blow money on stupid crap*--way too much money--but this... this I'm probably not going to buy.

    *as an example, my most recent internet shopping transaction (minutes ago) was for a "Mutt Cuts" shaggy van patch.
