FLIPSIDE ACTION FIGURES
« on: March 26, 2009, 10:15:23 pm »
Shadowgirls recently submitted a design of their Shadowchild character to be made into an action figure/statue here:
http://www.patchtogether.com/?Designs_Details&Id=1124

I'm just wondering, how many people would buy an Action Figure of Maytag, Bern or Bloody Mary, given the option.

Looks like they'd retail for around $38.00 US. (give or take $8)

I would NEVER buy one just because I don't do collectibles. But I would have to wonder what would the Mary look like with cloak and scythe? Half naked Mary w/ or w/o scythe?

Speaking of Shadowgirls, you might want to fix the link in your sig, the Flipside link as well.

All fixed Admiral, thanks for the heads up.

I'm surprised that Maytag's been shafted for merchendise yet again.  Votes on Bern and Bloody Mary but none on Maytag.  No one wants maytag holding a few daggers while striking a sexy pose?

Sorry nope.
I'm not a collector.

But again if I would for sure it would be Bern in that op image stance or Mary figurine half naked with cloak and scythe.
No for jester May,somehow I don't find May in her jester suit appealing at all,strange.

I must admit, I think Bern just strikes the best badass, threatening entry pose of any character by a long shot.  Bloody Mary comes a close second but I can't think of a really good full body pose with Maytag.

Best i got is this:



But no knives, cards or unzipping of dress.

I love figurines, so I would definitely buy a Maytag figure.  And a Bern.  And Bloody Mary.

I'd buy, but I'd like them to be poseable. Could be cool to make them as resin cast components to be assembled and painted by the byer :P In that case, I'd give more than $38 for one.

Would Bern come with Flipside Brick?

for just a straight up figurine? sure i'd go for all three. $38 is actually kinda cheap. but it kinda be cool to have two versions of maytag one with both arms and one with one arm

Just thought I would mention that I am seriously considering doing this... they would be of Maytag though, of course.  If I were to get some, I'd have to pick one character, so naturally it'd have to be her.

Yep Maytag.

Heck, throw some stuff together for possible poses like you did with the T-Shirts to get opinions, submit it to them for a proposal and link it everywhere you can.  Generally you'll only need about 100 votes and they'll put it up for pre-order, then you need 50 units for them to go ahead and produce it.

I just saw that the lady who does the Pheonix Requiem successfully got one of these figures made for her character.  It was only $29, though I'm sure there's tax and such.

so, i would totally buy a Mary figurine, but $38 is too much. /:

but i too wonder what Mary would look like. or would it be the type that you could choose? like the cloak/scythe are removable? but she's definitely my favorite character by far.

and as far as Bern being a bad ass, yes, she is, but she bothers me. i very much dislike closed minded people, and she strikes me as the such, very much so. it annoys me. i mean, sure she's gay, and gave up the knighthood, but she's narrow minded and only can see her point of view, and no one else's. *shrugs* anyways, that's definitely why i would not buy a figurine of her. and why i wouldnt get one for maytag, is, well, sure i adore her character, i just, i dunno. i think she's a little TOO predictable. *shrugs*

I dunno. I think Bern's been more open minded than most but thats a discussion for the chapter thread.

Hey! It took a while but the Shadowgirls Action figure has become a reality.  Check the cast out here: http://www.starkweatherstudios.com/images/sculpt/DSC08114.JPG

You know. We could always try for a double action figure.  i.e. Maytag and Bern together.  I'd bet more people would buy that.  They make a great pair anyways.  :-*

I think the Maytag action figure should be like one of those ball-jointed dolls that were being discussed a little while ago.
Plus, the suit should be made of real Spandex and removable. Really, the whole point of an action figure is to play with it, and we all know you can't play with Maytag for long without her getting naked.
Hi.
I've been out for two years, so warn me if I act like I missed something obvious. ^^;

...oh, and to anyone who missed me, I'm open to hugs, kisses, and intense tearful cuddles.

I'd actually buy a Maytag! (As special she could have a detachable arm  ;D)

Bernadette? Maybe ...

Bloody Mary? Nope. Too new, and not an endearing character.

If you're going for the "bad ones", try Voulgar or Moss (yeah, not that much of a bad guy, but still). Or Clairen.

Oh man, I want a Clairen action figure with a removable robe. (but it'd have to have some sort of ir so when the robe is removed the male action figures seize up and stop moving)

Actually, just a Clairen figure would be rather awesome.
