    What films need action figures?

    What movies have never had action figures and need them? Or have had crappy figures in the distant past and are due for an update?

    I'm thinking mainly Movie Maniacs-style figures, meaning one figure per movie. (We'd all kill for a Johnny Five figure, but who wants the Ally Sheedy?) But if there's a movie that needs a line to itself, post that too!

    Short Circuit: Johnny Five
    Harry & the Hendersons: Harry
    Beetlejuice: Beetlejuice
    The Highlander: Connor McLeod
    ET: ET
    The Goonies: Sloth
    The Dark Crystal: an entire line
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I would love it if an entire line of Napoleon Dynamite figures were released, I'd buy them all. Napoleon with time machine and tots, Kip with computer and tupperware, Uncle Rico with football and camera, Pedro with cake and Sledgehammer . . . the possibilities are endless.

    I'd also like Spaceballs, though Brooks said he couldn't do merchandise due to an agreement with Lucas.

    Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (or Playhouse, it's all good) is another one.

    I would like to see Carl from Big FIsh made into a figure. I think McFarlane could do that one up nice.

    Re: What films need action figures?

    After looking at my DVDs, I see a ton more I'd like.

    Two that are begging for their own line:
    Spaceballs - 11 figures, 2 waves: Dark Helmet, Barf, Yogurt, Dink 2-pack, Princess Vespa, Lonestar, Col. Sanders, Spaceball (white and black armor), Dot Matrix, President Scroob.
    Back to the Future - Various Martys & Doc Browns (with dogs) from different times, plus a Tannen or two. And a Delorian (gotta have a Delorian).

    Individual / Movie Maniacs / Marvel Legends:
    Happy Gilmore
    Bullseye (movie version)
    Indiana Jones (and Sr.?)- a great American version. Maybe an 8 or 12 incher.
    Bad Santa - all 3 main characters (Billby Bob, Tiny, and "Thurman")
    Jason Bourne ("The Bourne Identity/Supremacy")
    Buddy ("Elf")
    Leon and Mathilda ("Leon" / "The Preofessional")
    Milton ("Office Space")
    Frank "The Tank" Ricard ("Old School")

    James Bond needs to be done in with vehicles and gadgets. I know there's the ultra-collectible 12" line, but I'm thinking of play potential, and there's very little chance of seeing a 1/6th-scale Aston Martin DB5.

    Re: What films need action figures?

    i've always said that movie maniacs should have a fight club theme one time around. just picture them: "jack" (that's what i call ed norton's character, since they never really give him a proper name and he keeps talking about the "i am jack's liver" article...) tyler, robert paulson, and angel-face all with interchangeable normal and beat-up (or completely blown-apart, in robert paulson's case) heads. maybe a "jack beats the crap out of himself in his boss's office" playset??? that would be awesome!

    Re: What films need action figures?

    Here's a short list of mine:

    1) Fast Times At Ridgemont High (A Spicoli, Mr. Hand, and a Brad Hamilton with a bathroom playset. Maybe EE could have an exclusive Phoebe Cates in bikini)
    2) Spaceballs definitely
    3) Boondock Saints (maybe a Connor and Murphy two-pack)
    4) Dark Crystal (they have to be really creepy though)
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    Could be wrong, I thought they did have them once.
