    Yet another "design your own toy wave" thread.

    Here's one:

    DCUC: ShadowPact

    Nightmaster(Chimp pack-in)
    Enchantress(new costume)
    Blue Devil(new costume)
    Nightshade(old costume)
    Ragman(fabric cloak)
    BAF: one of Nightshade's shadow creatures, maybe her dragon.

    I've got a couple.

    Pan's Labyrinth (only one wave)
    -Faun (probably come with some cool accessories, like a dagger)
    -The Pale Man (baby shoes)
    -Ofelia and Toad 2 pack

    Firefly/Serenity (going to break this up so we can get some baddies in each wave). I'll note any accessories I'm gonna NEED.
    Wave 1
    -Malcolm Reynolds
    -Jayne Cobb (Vera, his hat that him mother made him).
    -Zoe Washburn
    -Inara Serra
    -Agent Dobson (with an accessory for his eye, so you can do both the show version and the "Those Left Behind" version)
    -Adelai Nisca

    Wave 2
    -River Tam
    -Simon Tam
    -Kaylee Frye
    -Hoban "Wash" Washburn (gonna need small plastic dinosaurs and maybe a mustache variant)
    -Shepherd Book
    -Early the Bounty Hunter

    Wave 3
    -Swordfight Mal (from "Shindig")
    -Jayne in Medical disguise (ideally, I'd like this one to talk, just he can say, "We applied the cortical electrodes, but we couldn't get a neural response.")[SIZE=-1][/SIZE]
    -Reaver Battle River
    -The Operative
    -Saffron (Complete with those awesome *ahem*...assets)
    -Reaver and Blue Sun 2-pack

    Serenity would be tough...would it be a vehicle or playset? The Mule would be cool though.

    OH! And Diamond Select wouldn't be allowed to get anywhere near these toys. I elect NECA.

    Dolph Lundgren- universal soldier
    Bruce Willis- hudson hawk ( i just really like this film)
    Eddie Murphy- beverley hills cop

    Anyone ever watch that Law And Order tv series? I'd like to see some of those characters made into action figures....i mean, what the hell, they made figures of Mulder & Scully from X-Files....

    Law and Order was on years before X-Files, and has remained on years after X-Files has been cancelled...

    And I see movies every week with Arnold, Van Damme and Gibson on them!

    So I'm in!

    And Matt Damon just jump on that list with his last Bourne movie! :hehe:

    Yeah, but X-files was kind of an actiony show....and had more of a fig buying fanbase then Law and Order...I recall once myself I brought up the possibility of a Law and order Series of figs.....Neca style....it was part of my TV Classics idea.....which I will bring up again here.


    Wave 1: Seinfeld

    Jerry
    George
    Kramer
    Elaine
    Puddy

    Deluxe Playset of Jerry's Apartment....or better yet, Monk's diner....though that would be too big....it would come with Newman.

    Wave 2: Cheers

    Sam
    Carla
    Cliff
    Diane
    Frasier

    Deluxe playset the left half of the bar (doorway, Indian, Stairs to Melville's) and would come with Coach

    Wave 3: Cheers 2

    Woody
    Rebecca
    Lillith
    Sam 2
    Paul (the chubby barfly with glasses)

    Deluxe playset would be the right half of the bar....with Norm.

    Wave 4: Night Court

    Harry
    Dan
    Bull
    Christine
    Selma (Varient Florence Head)
    Roz
    Phil

    Deluxe Playset...most of the courtroom...the bench and lawyer tables anyway....with Mac.

    Wave 5: Friends

    Ross
    Joey
    Chandler
    Monica
    Phoebe
    Rachel

    Deluxe Playset, Central Perk...with part of the bar, the couch, the front window and door and a spot for Phoebe to play instuments.....and it comes with Gunther.


    Y'know, these playsets would be huge....while I would like them in a 6/7 inch scale, it would almost make sense for them to scale these back to 3-4 inches for costs sake....cause they won't be that articulated....if they can get the sculpts right...maybe 5 inches.

    Wave 6: 3rd Rock from the Sun

    Tommy (Short hair varient)
    Dick
    Harry
    Sally
    Mary
    Officer Don

    Deluxe playset thier apartment....living room anyway, with Mrs Dupechek



    I think these would kick ass......not Friends though...i only tossed that it there cause it's kinda popular.

    80's Television Icons. Maybe make these two packs.

    Alf and Willy




    You know what, after those two I don't even care.

    So I've been playing Jade Empire, and really wish this game had some figs. What would be cooler is if Bioware had a whole bunch of toys made from their games. Like an entire line of KOTOR, not just Revan and Malek.

    Ever since Bioware moved on from the D&D liscense, they've made RPGs that appeal to those who may not have played them before. With Mass Effect looking like a big candidate for plenty of Game of the Year lists, seems to me that toys based on their games would sell rather well.
