Apparently, I'm mostly doing tangetial-to-comics topics this week. Today, I'm talking about action figures. Nothing complicated, though; just a list of comics related action figures that I would like to see made in a 6-inch scale that could pair with Marvel Legends and Mattel's DC figures and the like. I know some of these have been prototyped or made in different sizes, but as far as I can tell, none of these characters have actually been produced in that scale. Probably because most of them are financially practical. But in no particular order...
  • The Phantom
  • Flash Gordon
  • Golden Age Daredevil
  • The Claw
  • The Heap
  • The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
  • The Sandman and Sandy (I know Wesley Dodds has been done as the gasmask-wearing Sandman; I'm talking about the purple/yellow costume specifically here.)
  • The Green Turtle
  • Nelvana
  • Golden Age Red Tornado (Ma Hunkle)
  • Atomic Robo
  • Girl Genius
  • Captain Klutz
  • The Mole Man's monster from Fantastic Four #1
  • Rama-Tut
Also, as a minor rant... the seven inch scale is just dumb. A six inch scale makes sense; it's easy math: one inch equal one foot. Any accessories or vehicles or playsets can be rescaled quickly. Easy peasy. Seven inch scale, though? One foot scales down to 1.2 inches. Yeah, it's 1/10 the size but that only make sense if you're on a metric system; imperial units don't scale well that way.
