“In every generation, there is a Chosen One. She alone shall stand against the vampires, demons, and forces of darkness. She is the Slayer.”
It’s hard to believe, but twenty years ago today the pilot episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered on the now defunct WB network. Who would have thought that a mid-season replacement series with a goofy sounding name would turn into the cult phenomenon that it is today?
Like many, myself included, I discovered this little-show-that-could during my formative teenage years. And, like many, I am so, so glad I did. This show helped shape me in more ways than one.
It gave me a plethora of strong female characters to look up to (as well as different variations of what strong can represent).
It was the catalyst for my current full-blown love of the horror genre.
It introduced me to the possibilities of what well written media can accomplish, both from a storytelling standpoint, as well as critical analysis (I owned far too many episode guides and essays at one point. Okay, fine, I still do).
It was also one of my first peaks behind the veil into internet fandom. Thank you, fanfiction.net, for your service.
Truly, this show has given us all so much. We owe our thanks to the tireless cast and crew for providing us with seven glorious seasons and a legacy that still lives on today.

If old school action figures are more your style, then you’ll want to get your hands on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer ReAction Series! These exciting retro action figures are proudly presented by Funko and Super7.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer Buffy ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure features the Chosen One in a stylish red mini skirt, black tank top, and thigh high boots. She’s also sporting a cross necklace, and this figure includes a wooden stake accessory.
The Scooby Gang’s prominent Wicca looks adorable as the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Willow ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure. She has her red hair cropped short and is dressed in a pink sweater and black pants.
Of course, wherever Willow is, Oz can’t be far behind! The part time werewolf is featured in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Oz ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure. He’s presented in a red t-shirt and grey pants. This figure also includes an electric guitar accessory.
Let’s talk about the men in Buffy’s life. Are you Team Bangle or Team Spuffy? Take your pick with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Angel ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure or the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Spike ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure. Both vampires enjoy black in their wardrobe, which is heavily apparent. You also have the choice between a human or vamped out version of the Spike figure.
Finally, one of the show’s best villains gets the action figure treatment. From “Hush,” The Gentlemen striked fear into the hearts of Sunnydale’s citizens. Now his creepy smile can follow you home thanks to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer The Gentleman ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure.
These figures measure 3 3/4-inches tall and are recommended for ages 14 and up. They also feature 5 points of articulation, just like the classic Kenner action figures of the 1970s and 1980s! They come packaged in a 1980s-style card back design, with a coffin-style blister where the action figure is displayed.
All of these collectibles are available through Entertainment Earth right now! Place your orders and bring the Hellmouth home today.
