Waitaminiute everybody... No Fantastic Journey mention yet? I mean, I might even buy five of those.
But seriously where's Land of the Lost?
Looking for Tong body style LHT/Australian release Ninjas of any color, and here's :::My Expansive Wants List::: WARNING: I am medical malady boy, and have recently proven to be chronic iffy-to-negligible-trader-response-guy. Like After School Special worthy. This is my self-imposed Scarlet Letter.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
Not that this could be done without Disney\Pixar legal squashing a lesser company like gnat- but would it be cool to see a Mego style Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear- you know, done in realistic proportions?
I recall reading on here that one of the Mego creators, when asked if he would have made Sulu or Chekov had the Star Trek line continued, replied that he would have made more aliens.
In that way, some of these lines could work. The Irwin Allen stuff for example. I dunno if Land of the Giants would work, it would just be the cast and a giant pencil, but take Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, or my personal fave, the Time Tunnel. Once you make a few main characters, like Doug and Tony or Nelson and Crane, you could make everyone from Marco Polo to a Manfish! Guys painted silver who could crossover to other shows!
Kolchak could work this way also. You got Kolchak, maybe Vincenzo, and then all the monsters you could think of!
Even Columbo! Think of all the guest stars! Patrick McGoohan! Martin Landau! John Cassavetes! Who hasn't wanted to make a custom for a Cassavetes picture? Jack Cassidy and Robert Culp with alternate outfits for their hundreds of guest appearances. Leonard Nimoy complete with "murder gloves", those leather gloves that people only wear when they are gonna kill somebody. It goes on and on.
Anywho, that's my two cents. Fun thread!
BJ and the Bear is a must for all serious collectors!
A lot of the Hanna-Barbera shows mentioned would work well too. For example, Space Ghost, The Herculoids, Birdman or Scooby-Doo. Other than the main cast of these shows you have numerous very colorful and cool looking villians / monsters / aliens to keep the lines going for several waves.
