This year, we've featured eighteen Most Requested articles. And although we really wanted each and everything we asked for, we also want to know which of the Most Requested Figures really is the most requested. And the best part is, you get to decide.
Before we get into the nominess, we decided on one ground rule. The figure still must require a request - they can't be announced/scheduled in anyway. This disqualified Martian Manhunter as his barcode is present in the Wal-Mart computers. We considered disqualifying Ghostbusters minimates, as two of the ones requested are in the third 4pk, but we've left it in as there are plenty of others that could use minimate treatment.
Before we get to the poll, here again, are the nominees.
Of the various e-mails we receive about the site features, the Most Requested Figure column seems to get the most attention. Some people e-mail in their support for our request (and some denounce them). Some folks send in requests they'd like to see or ways to go about getting more support for their particular want. This week though, we received a unique e-mail. One reader asked about the futility of the column and why we do it. It really made us think.
For the most part, we don't see this column as futile. A Martian Manhunter DC Classic is certain. Mattel skipping out on JLU Toyman would be a bonehead move. Hasbro will eventually do a 25th Covergirl. Mezco *could* make more comic Hellboy. We do think about the likelihood when we plan these articles and we usually cast aside the ones we think would be futile. But why not do a futile one? So, contrary to what our reader may have intended, we're going to feature one of those futile requests: Xevoz.
