As you guys probably know, lately I've been putting together various wishlists of the top ten characters I'd like to see be made into action figures.
And trust me, with the sheer amount of characters out there from the big two, there's a lot, and I mean A LOT of heroes and villains who don't have their own action figures.
This week's theme is The Flash's Rogue's Gallery, specifically the ones that I think are past due being represented into action figure form.
10). Weather Wizard (Classic)/(Modern)
Honestly as much as I'd like to see the classic version made, I'll go for the modern one too. Anything just as long as he's finally made.
9). Heatwave (Classic)
Another Rogue that desperately needs to be crossed off this list. hell any list. And now that he's regularly appearing on the new Legends of Tomorrow show, then there's never been a better time than now to make him.
Ever since I saw him and that design, I've always wanted to see the Top made in action figure form, especially for the DCUC line. I still do:(
7). The Trickster (Classic)
Much like the others on this list, he's one of the last classic members of the Rogues that really, really needs to be made already. Love that costume too.
6). Abra Kadabra
There's a couple versions of his look you can go with, so I went with the top two I'd like to see. The current Nu52 one is just to boring and uninspired-looking.
5). The Icicle (Classic)
He's a golden age villain and has a cool design. Win-win here.
4). Rainbow Raider
What? Why not the Rainbow Raider? He's earned it this spot.
3). The Pied Piper (Classic)/(Modern)
I'd easily go for both versions of the Pied Piper, but I figure out the two, the modern one's probably the most likely to be made.
2). Dr. Alchemy/The Alchemist (Classic)
Another classic villain with an equally classic look that's simple enough to pull off without too having to make too many new parts.
A very deserving figure to be made I think, You can either do a straight up repaint or really go to town and do a full-on twisted sculpt that really sells how scary the Black Flash can look.
And here's the Top 5 runner-ups:
5). The Trickster (Axel Walker)
This new kid's more likely to have an action figure made before the original does, so might as well go ahead right?
4). Zoom (Hunter Zolomon)
Slight and simple repaint for the Prof. Zoom figure that was made in the DCUC line, and other lines.
3). Mr. Element
Here's a classic villain that just missed making the main list. They could really do this one up really well if they really invested in the sculpt, especially the helmet design.
2). The Golden Glider (Classic)
Captain Cold's sister is back among the living in the NU52, so while that look would more than likely to be made than her original classic look, I still prefer the classic look myself.
1). The Thinker (Modern Computerized Form)
Originally just a regular guy who wore a fancy spaghetti strainer for a weapon, this computerized version of Cliff DeVoe looks a million times better than he originally did. A slight challenge to realize in 3-D figure form, but worth a shot I think. I'd sure love to see how they'd do it.
That's my list, what's yours?
And yes, I already thought about The Turtle and decided to exclude him because of his lame "powers" and design.
