I would post this on the official SPAWN forums, but there are a good few too many really unkind people there, so I decided to post my choices here.

Rick Deckard (Blade Runner) Harrison Ford's futuristic cop would come with his trademark pistol

Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs) The Good Doctor should come with his straight jacket and a removable mask

Ellen Ripley (Alien(s) Movies)-the greatest chick-hero ever should come with the little girl Newt. Why the hell was Hasbro's Aliens line made without any human characters at all?

Indiana Jones (IJ Trilogy) is Hasbro doesn't produce a line of these figures, just Indy would definatley be a good Movie Maniac

John Rambo (Rambo trilogy) Ok, they made us a toy of Arnie the Terminator, so how about a figure of Sylvester "The Other Guy" Stallone? This dude oughta come with a big gun or in a bow-firing position

DeLorean (Back to the Future) true, McFarlene seems to keep their Movie Maniacs horror and action related, but they have produced lines for Austin Powers and Strange Brew. A boxed set with the car, Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet Brown would kick ***.

Queen Alien (Aliens) true, there were a series of Aliens figures of just the aliens, not the people produced by Kenner, but who would not buy a Queen that was the size of the King Kong figure?

Deckard from Blade Runner, awesome choice! Indy, Ripley, and the Back to the Future Delorean with Marty & Doc would all be super as well... but McF would have to increase their articulation and material problems ten-fold to get me really fired up on this one.

Regan, the exorcist
Possibly to foul to make, but still it would be awesome!

Darth Vader, My god what they could do with this one, especially if Todd McFarline does it, i drool at the thought!!!

Ben Willis, I know what you did last summer, and i still know...

That would be cool to make, its not hard

Cupid, Valentine
Killer, in a cupid mask, not hard

Scream, Killers revealed!

All 5 made, possibly in a 5 packs, cloth clothes!!!

Ooog! I forgot! How about the Bruce Willis character from The Sixth Sense? I'd buy that. A Darth Vader Movie Maniac has probably less than zero of a chance of being made. But it is nice to dream :D

I really don't see how McFarlane could improve upon Hasbro's most recent Darth Vader figures. Except to make a really dull, lump of unarticulated plastic.

Indy is a little to action oriented for McFarlane, meaning plastic statues wouldn't do the property justice.

Although I would love to see Deckard Smith and maybe a couple of the replicants from Bladerunner, namely Pris with her freaky eye make-up and frizzed out hair.

I'd like to see them do Darth Maul.

The Joker and The Penguin, Darth Vader and Darth Maul, Jack Skellington, Queen Alien, Hannibal Lecter, Pinhead.

Most of them have already been made into Action Figures, but I would like to see them done Mc Farlane style!

Deckard and (of course) Roy Batty from Blade Runner have always been on my Movie Maniacs wish list.

Two I saw on a list of what was to have been the next line-up (the one that turned out to be T2, Blair Witch, etc.) that I thought were great were Darkness (from Legend) and my personal favorite Alex (from A Clockwork Orange).

I don't know if it fits the motif or not, but I'd love some figures based on Buckaroo Bonzai Across the Eighth Dimension (one of my all time favorite films). Buckaroo, Dr. Emilio Lizardo, John Parker and John Bigbutee' would be ideal, especially if the Johns had interchangeable hands and heads (human and Lectroid).

How about that hideous baby-thing from It's Alive! That would be a good choice for the line. Far better than one of the other projected members of the next line, Sloth from the Goonies! I believe there was also a Gremlins two-pack promised.

One final thought, from a very obscure and incredibly funky movie I've not seen since I was a kid, the title character from The Phantom of The Paradise! If you get a chance, check out this twisted slant on The Phantom of the Opera. It is high camp but a lot of fun.

If I really put my mind to it, I could scare up a few more, but that's all I have for now.

An axe-weilding Jack Nicholson from "The Shining" would be very cool too. As for the Joker and Penguin- I always wanted to see a Batman line based strictly on the movies (the first two that didn't suck, if you want to get specific) with actual good likenesses of the actors, and none of this "Glow in the dark, aqua-strike, missile firing Batman" crap.

10-30-2001, 03:42 PM
Heeeeeerrrreeees Johnny!

Good choice. Perhaps the blood-covered Carrie (from the movie of the same name) would be a good, too.

McFarlene could do a Deckard Smith dead at his computer.

Oh! I forgot about Alex and the other Droogs from Clockwork Orange

I wouldn't mind seeing some Mel Gibson figures from The Patriot and Braveheart and maybe some of the other characters too.

The Ghostbusters.

Ramirez, Connor, and Kurg from Highlader.

Trent and Mikey from Swingers.

Inspector Closeau.

Dets. Mills and Somerset fron Se7en.

Westley from Princess Bride.

Tyler Durden.

Forrest Gump.

Charlie Chaplin.

The gang from Animal House.

The list goes on and on...and I don't even buy McFarlane Figs...

Henrietta - "Evil Dead II, Dead by Dawn" - She needs to be made, she should have two interchangable heads, normal and the "pee wee" head with elongated neck.

Beetlejuice - " " - This would be neat to see.

Ash - "Army of Darkness" - I would like to see an S-mart version with rifle.

Audri II - "Little Shop of Horrors" - easily a boxed set if they do the final "mean green mother" version at the end of the film. Or it could fit on a blister card if they do a smaller potted version.

Seymour Krelbourn - "Little Shop of Horrors" - could come with Audri II seen at the beginning of the film. Some body parts rapped up in paper *bloody or not* possibly an axe, and a bloody paper apron.

And I would just like to see the Ghostbusters, period!

Forrest Gump, the brilliant classic movie character that he is, will probably never get his own action figure.

I would like to see entire lines of The Goonies and Animal House.

I think my number one vote goes to Jack "Heeeere's JOHNNY!" Torrence. "I'm not going to hurt you. I'm just going to bash your brains in. I'm just going to bash your brains the f--k in!"

Who's on your pick list for who should be made next? Here's a few of mine...Jack Torrence-"The Shining"

Rick Deckard-"Blade Runner"

Alex-"A Clockwork Orange"

Ellen Ripley-"Aliens"

Indiana Jones-"IJ Trilogy"

Hannibal Lecter-"SOTL and Hannibal"

(Deluxe) Old-school Godzilla

(Deluxe) Queen Alien

(Deluxe) DeLorean w/ Marty McFly and Doc Brown-"Back to the Future"

I would also love to see McToys produce a line of Goonies figures, as well as re-release their Sleepy Hollow line along with some new figures like Katrina. What does everyone else think?

11-13-2001, 11:45 AM
Mothra!!!!!! :D Actually I think I'd have to take your list. :P Well except Alex, that movie was weird. I'd actually like to see alot of the classic Godzilla stuff, Back to the Future stuff, and more T2 stuff made. That'd kick. :D

Star Wars Movie Maniacs? Naw. I'm happy with what Hasbro is doing with them right now thanks. I am quite fond of the Epic Force figures, however, which are highly McFarlene-esque in scale and detailing.

Can't we combine these two threads?

Yes, done. These really were the same thing.

Alex and his droogs...best idea
Cheezo,Dippo and Bippo from "Clownhouse" maybe a little seen movie but the best evil clowns i ever saw, oh yeah on that note Pennywise from "It"

11-16-2001, 12:04 AM
The 3 Stooges would be better. ;) Well....maybe a 5-pack or 5-figure series of all 5 of the stooges would be. What would be really cool is having half the figures done in black and white coloring while the other half is in regular colors, as sort of a generations thing.
