Even though our Requests article isn’t on a regular basis this year, we still want to dust it off now and again to give the companines ideas for figures fans might like to see. Normally, I don’t bring up DC Universe Classics because Matty’s doing a decent job. But after Toy Fair, an idea came to me that I wanted to share.
In 2010, IAT featured 33 candidates from across the toy spectrum – the return for cancelled lines, key figures missing from current lineups, properties in need of toys, characters that have never been featured in toy form, etc. Then, we asked you to vote. Here’s your choice for IAT’s 2010 Most Requested Figure
3 voting is over! With nearly 900 votes in, the last four finalists have been selected. Yeah, four. We ended up with a tie for 3rd place in Round 3! Vigo, Rescue, Blonde Bikini Teela, & the Crime Syndicate are ready to join the others in the final round. Come in and vote for IAT’s 2010 Most Requested Figure!
We’re a little late, but it’s finally time to select the last group of semi-finalists for IAT’s 2010 Most Requested figure! For the last few months, we’ve featured an eclectic batch of requests and now it’s come time to separate the winners from the losers. Cast your vote in Round 3 before it’s too late
As a general rule, we don’t include many MOTU characters in this column because Mattel promises us the complete roster. That means we’d just be asking to move them up on the schedule. But there’s a movment out there for a MOTU character likely not on Mattel’s roll call… “Blonde Bikini” Teela.
I’ve come to a realization with my recent purchases of Star Wars: Vintage Collection figures: I love that line. With superb articulation and great sculpts this may be the best toy line on the market today. But my Star Wars shelves will never be complete without Spaceballs figures.
Something unexpected happened to me a couple months ago. AMC released their first trailer for The Walking Dead and I was blown away. Just two episodes into this new series, one thing is very clear to me. Some company needs to start making toys of these characters right now.
I was reading through this awful issue of Justice League of America at the comic shop last week. I don’t normally bother with the book, I stay away from that writer these days, but this issue featured the Crime Syndicate, so I braved it. I’d also like to spend some money on Crime Syndicate toys too.
We’re a little behind on our Requests for this third round and we’ve had a few requests where none of the IAT staffwriters were proficient on the subject matter. Today’s request, Dark Tower, is one of those requests. So, we turned to reader Dayraven for the in’s and out’s .
With all these movie Iron Man figures running around, plus the few from the Marvel Universe line, I think it’s about time for Tony’s right-hand woman to get her own toy. No, I’m not asking for a personal assistant figure, but I would like to see a figure of Pepper Potts in her Rescue Armor
I don’t really have a Transformers budget, but I try to keep an eye on the franchise. I was hooked as a kid and there are certain characters I just have to buy when they get a new version, a redeco, or a reissue. But an e-mail from reader Jason L. reminded of one favorite character that I’ve never had as a toy: Kup.
For this most requested, I wanted to focus on one of the most prolific science fiction TV shows to not air in the late 70’s – early 80’s. But that hasn’t stopped the throngs of fans from meeting every year at conventions and swap merchandise. But the one thing missing from all their collections are official Galaxy Quest action figures.
