Haven't done one of these in good while either, an edition of Dream Waves, where I blog about a dream wave of figures I'd love to see made.
Now this one's going to be a little different in that I'll be applying the same strategies and sensibilities I'd normally apply to the Marvel Legends line. In fact that's exactly how I'll be setting this one up.....except this time I'm talking about a DC/Wildstorm property instead of the usual Marvel one.
Blame Googum for it, since he brought up Warren Ellis and John Cassidy's Planetary to me last week.
And yes Virginia, there will be some derivatives of Marvel and DC characters, as well as old pulp heroes from the 30's. I'll just be trying my best to keep those to a minimum.
Also, yes, I'm aware that back in the late 90's to early 00's DC did put out a couple Planetary figures through their DC Direct line back in the day. But they only put out the main 3 characters of Elijah Snow, Jakita Wagner, and Drummer.
There's a whole slew of characters that never got made from the series.
Well today I'll rectify that and present my ideal Planetary line of figures.
Let's do this.....
Planetary Wave 1:
1). Elijah Snow
3). Jakita Wagner
4). Dr. Randal Dowling
5). Kim Suskind
6). William Leather
Planetary Wave 2:
1). Doc Axel Bronze
3). The Dark Millionaire
4). The Dead Ranger
5). John Stone
6). Jim Wilder
Honestly I'm not sure who or what to use as a second build-a-figure.
Their version of the Hulk from the Planetary Preview? Any of the Godzilla-inspired monsters?
The Dead version of their Galactus? I have no idea.
Anyways that's what I would do if I could plan out and create an action figure sub-line from the Planetary series.
What you guys think?
