Still Too Far Outside the Room

I just stumbled across this list of comic book characters that I wanted to see made into action figures...
  • Atomic Robo
  • Tristan MacGregor (High Moon)
  • Reuben Flagg (American Flagg!)
  • Agatha Heterodyne (Girl Genius)
  • Nemo (Little Nemo in Slumberland)
  • Heath Huston (Fear Agent)
  • Ogami Ittō (Lone Wolf & Cub)
  • Aveeare (SnarfQuest)
  • Rocketo Garrison
  • Captain Klutz
  • Groo
  • Hatter Madigan (Looking Glass Wars)
The original list is from 2010, and some of these characters haven't seen print in any form for years and years, so most of these are not in the least bit surprising. (I don't think Frank Espinosa has done any professional comic work since 2006, much less return to Rocketo in any capacity!) But I'm kind of bummed that only one of those chaaracters have ever had action figures made of them, and I believe even then Ogami Ittō is only available in a more high-end format. (There have been a few inaction figures for some of these, but they're literally just plastic statues. Zero possibility.)

These wouldn't be the Top Ten I'd choose today, although many would still remain on the list, but I'm reminded how out of step I tend to be with popular ideas and opinions.

But tell me a Captain Klutz action figure wouldn't be cool!

Good list. Speaking of which, I want this.

Others I might want...
- Scott Pilgrim
- The Mighty Halo (from _Grrl Power_)
- Alison Green (from _Strong Female Protagonist_)
- Bandette
- _Atari Force_
- Superhero Girl

I wonder if _Order of the Stick_ action figures would be physically feasible?

Ha! I did not know about the Wimbledon Green figure -- nice!

Your's a good list, too -- but they HAVE done Scott Pilgrim figures!
