Default My Toy Wishlist

I don't tend to call myself an aficionado on much, however, I'm something of an action figure aficionado. Now, I thought Blizzard's in-house figures were ok, but nothing special. Toycom's were a devastating disappointment. DC Unlimited, however, has really upped the ante, giving the current Action Figure powerhouses a run for their money. Now, for those of you who don't know, the series was released with named characters who we'd never heard of before: Rehgar Earthfury, Thoras Anvilmar, Valeera Sanguinar, and Meryl Felstorm. It's recently been revealed that at least a few of these characters are also in the comic. I'm not sure which came first, or who's basing what characters on what, but there it is.

So now, I'm going to go through the very pointless process of saying how I wished it had gone.

We start with every game as a different property.

Warcraft 1:
Anduin Lothar, Medivh, Blackhand, Garona.

Warcraft II:
Gul'dan, Orgrim Doomhammer, Zul'jin, Uther Lightbringer, Terenas Menethil

Beyond the Dark Portal:
Alleria Windrunner, Turalyon, Teron Gorefiend, Dentarg

The following games have four three-figure series, for 12 figures per game.

Reign of Chaos:
Series 1: The Scourge of Lordaeron
Arthas Menethil, Jaina Proudmoore, Muradin Bronzebeard

Series 2: Path of the Damned
Arthas 2 (Death Knight), Kel'Thuzad (as a necromancer), Tichondrius

Series 3: Invasion of Kalimdor
Thrall, Grom Hellscream, Mannoroth

Series 4: Eternity's End
Tyrande Whisperwing, Malfurion Stormrage, Archimonde

Frozen Throne
Series 1: Terror on the Tides
Illidan Stormrage, Maiev Shadowsong, Lady Vashj

Series 2: Curse of the Blood Elves
Kael'thas Sunstrider, Lord Garithos, Akama

Series 3: Legacy of the Damned
Sylvanas Windrunner, Anub'arak, Balnazzar

Series 4: The Founding of Durotar
Rexxar, Rokhan, Daelin Proudmoore

World of Warcraft then has a number of 4-figure series focusing on different groups of characters.

Series 1: Racial Leaders
Bolvar Fordragon, Cairne Bloodhoof, Magni Bronzebeard, Varimathras

Series 2: Dungeons
Darkmaster Gandling, Baron Rivendare, Prince Tortheldrin, Princess Theradras

Series 3: Raids
Rend Blackhand, Hakkar, Ragnaros, Kel'Thuzad (as a lich)

Series 4: Dragons!
Onyxia, Nefarian, Azuregos, Anachronos

Series 5: Burning Crusade Racial Leaders
Velen, Lor'themar Theron, Khadgar, A'dal (not sure how they'd do it, though)

Series 6: Burning Crusade Dungeons
Kargath Bladefist, Murmur, Warlord Kalithresh, Patheleon the Calculator

Series 7: Burning Crusade Raids
Gruul, Mother Shahraz, Naj'entus, Solarian

Series 8: Burning Crusade Dragons
Nightbane, Naltharaku, Sapphiron, Emeriss

That's right. I want a million action figures.

Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon

A Lothar figurine would be more than enough for me.

Sadly they will never make most of those. There are people who don't even know who the hell Garona is. Everything is geared towards WoW players now, which are like 75% people who don't care about any of the other games
