    Very cool ideas from all. James Bond would be amazing if done right.

    The Warriors - as long as they are made by a company that doesn't have giant head issues.

    I'd say Logan's Run, but...

    Okay, first - you guys!

    Ha! Before I knew that it existed, I used to daydream about a whole line of lesser-known baddies from the Baker years.

    Daydreamed about this CONSTANTLY when I was a tot. I'm sure that plenty of the Krofft ventures would have made for great lines, but you've landed on my number one straight away

    Correct! Robotman and the gang, now! GM's run would make for excellent toys, too, although maybe a little modern for my tastes, but you couldn't keep me away from a Danny the Street carrying case!


    The first license that popped in my head when I saw the title of this thread was The Prisoner. A favorite of mine for my entire life, and as appropriate a subject matter for Mego and their children as I can think of - snappy, iconic outfits; a wealth of secondary characters and generic henchfolk; and the built-in potential for a new No.2 every 6 months! Don't even get me started on vehicles and plastic-coated, fold out playsets... Swoon!

    I'd love to see a simple Silent Running line - Just good ol' Bruce Dern, the wee robots and a wealth of plastic plants.

    Another something that would fail miserably at the checkout would be a whole line based on Carpenter's Dark Star. Yeah, I know his later work is where the money's at, but c'mon, how fun would it be to have that crew and a round, inflatable alien with nasty, rubber feet around the house? Very!

    I think I'd conclude my four-point-plan to bankrupt any toy company with a grayscale run of the complete main cast from Kubrick's Paths of Glory. Love that film, but mostly I think I'd just like it to happen so that I could have a Timothy Carey doll.


    Also, The Outer Limits, duh, and I think that the The Young Ones might actually sell.

    What, nobody else wants to chime in? Not even to tear apart my Dream Teams???

    Occurred to me today that, now that BBP has the license in hand, a nice, * l o n g * run of the populous (permanent, transient and multidimensional) of Twin Peaks would be most welcome in my world.


    Eensy, weensy Kenner-style plastic Cooper? Nah! 8 solid inches of Cooper dress-up dollie magic? Hell to the yes to the yes yes yes!

    That's easy for me:

    1. James Bond
    2. Hammer horror
    3. Battle of the Planets

    I'd buy all of them.
