The Goonies is probably one of the fondest movies from my childhood (and many from my generation would agree). It had everything - hidden pirate treasure, evil villains, action, adventure, young romance and a malformed strongman with a penchant for Rocky Road and Snickers. I still think this is one of Spielberg's best films from his heyday.
In any case, Mezco toys has announced that this summer they'll release a line of action figures based on the original gang. Mikey (the leader), Data (the "weapons" expert), Mouth (the one with the sharp tongue), Chunk (the lovable oaf who emotionally traumatized chubby kids everywhere) and, of course, Sloth (the malformed strongman) are all being immortalized in 6" of plastic, just in time for the "Gen X-ers" to introduce it to their kids.
And if that's not enough, Cartoon Network originally had plans last year to release a new cartoon based on the 1985 film. Word is they halted production because the original cast asked for too much cash for the use of their likenesses, but the possibility of an animated telling of new Goonies stories isn't completely out of the question yet. The project has been "back-burnered" for now, though.
Originally, 2 sequels to the film were planned but, much to the dismay of the fans, were scrapped after scheduling and financial conflicts. Regardless, the film still has a very strong cult following.
