Rather than who...how about what type of figures do people want?

25mm lead for role playing
40mm-60mm lead for display
plastic posable action figures (Reaction Figures)
action man style with changable clothing/equipment
statues (Robert Harrop)
model kits (plastic/pvc)
life size pieces of equipment (lawgiver, etc)

Something else? (please specify)

personally, I'd like to see miniature figures. Like the 28mm ones citadel did way back... or may be in 54mm scale. That'd be cool. Both sizes are good for roleplaying, and skirmish games and stuff.

i was think ing just the same size as the normal just released ones but in different characters another suggestion is DR and Quinch probably seperately sold. although there could be special size figures like a 12 icnh judge dredd figure like the GI joes, this size has always sold well as figure take for instance the buzz lightyear figure a few years back. also it gives the figure more stature and is just better.

ABC Warriors are a must by Reaction,but I'd be well into 54mm lead jobs of the same.How about a Bad Company box set by Reaction?Crumbs.THE DARK JUDGES,please in 12".Just more figures.SOON.

i'm not sure if this has been already covered, but reaction figuRES are no longer making them... the contract runs out inabout 8 months (i think) and thats why all the promised abc warriors, etc have not been realeased.. because they were a bit of a failure(some of the figures were a bit patchy as well)

i think figures with the detail of the mcfarlane ones would be really cool with all the weapons and stuff but the only drawback with them being like that is it make tem virtually impossible to use without breaking a bit off by accident.

2000ad figures - Dream On
« Reply #8 on: 10 December, 2001, 07:02:04 am »
Well, looks like they havn't been a great success.  I had my doubts as I heard a local shop was selling them for ?1.80 each.  Coming soon to a remaindered shop near you.  Bit of a bitch as I paid full price for mine.  Serves me right for buying toys at my age.

As the Dredd RPG is now going to be made, along with Slaine, that seems a more likely route to getting small portable homunculi of our fave characters.  Mongoose has the rights to RPG, maybe someone should contact Harlequin who licensed the Dr Who 28mm figures and ask them.  They changed their name to Icon, then something else but they might do it.  they also do lord of the rings, as well as those GW cultists who are trying to ensare more innocent folk (if you are a games workshop cultist, don't hassle me, every time I say something it's like the spanish inquistion)

I'm sure you all remember how good those Citadel figures were, they even made Johnny Alpha and Wulf.  

I think there could be a market for inflatable characters with orifices, there are enough disturbed fans out there to make it financially viable.
