Action Figure Wishlist

As a collector and pop-culture addict, there is a list of figures I want a mile long.  And I’m not sure all of them exist.  Some of these figures now exist and I would like to share my top favorites with you.

Firefly/Serenity

If you are a fellow Browncoat, you know how long we have been waiting for any Firefly action figures of any kind.  If you aren’t, go watch the entire one-season series.  You won’t regret it.

Now, there are Firefly/Serenity action figures as part of the new ReAction line of retrostyled action figures at Entertainment Earth!

The quality of these figures is unknown, as the ReAction Line is based on the designs of older action figures.  That being said, a reliable rumor has reached my ear that higher-quality figures are possibly planned for another line.  I’ll be staying tuned.

Big Bang Theory

ThinkGeek carries a Sheldon action figure, but Entertainment Earth has more.

The reason Entertainment Earth has more is that they carry pre-orders, whereas ThinkGeek likes to have the item in-stock before listing.  Both are carrying the same Sheldon figure.

These seem to be high-quality figures with cloth outfits.  If you want more fun, ThinkGeek carries the 11th Doctor in the same quality and scale.

And even though the cake may be a lie, these Portal Turrets aren’t!

Now this list could go on forever, but I think I’ll just end with the one figure that no Batman fan like myself could do without.  The Joker from The Killing Joke in statue form!
