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.
Anduin Lothar, Medivh, Blackhand, Garona.
Gul'dan, Orgrim Doomhammer, Zul'jin, Uther Lightbringer, Terenas Menethil

Alleria Windrunner, Turalyon, Teron Gorefiend, Dentarg

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
