View Full Version : Famous Personalities Want List

So far we have two figures under the banner of "Famous Personalities'. Scarface and John Wayne. Reports state that their will be a number of John Wayne figures. Will there be other Al Pacino figures too? I guess the figure would have been worded as 'Al Pacino as Scarface' if that were to be the case.

There is huge potential for a line like this, and I don't mind that things are moving along at, what may seem, a slow pace for a line. There are enough 1/6 figs to be had from other lines. I thought a thread like this may give Sideshow ideas, as to what we may think are viable figures, to extend the possibilities they have in their minds already.

Of course there are a multitude of obscure personalities that wouldn't be viable, and the line seems to initially be concerned with actors, though that may not be the case. There are many genres that fans may be interested in. Movies, Sports, Historic, Political, Business the Arts. Many will fall under other existing lines, but without guidelines who knows? So I'll start with a few

Errol Flynn as Robin Hood.
Maria Ouspenskaya as Maleva (sneaky hey?)
Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones
Ned Kelly as himself (real life personality)
Angela Jolie
Charlie Chaplin
Bruce Lee
Albert Einstein
Clint Eastwood
James Dean
Bethoven

Getting the Duke soon and yea for that. Just wish it had been ready to go this year. It would have helped me with Christmas shopping.
I suspect SSC would need a film or at least an iconic costume tie in so I'm including choices for those also.
Clint Eastwood. Man with no name would be a good start.
Angelina Jolie from Tomb Raider or Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Angie do have it goin' on.
Errol Flynn as Capt. Blood or in Against all Flags.
Tyrone Power from The Black Swan.
George Sanders from The Black Swan.
Maureen OHara from The Black Swan or Against All Flags.
I guess thats all my pirates for now.
Cary Cooper which we kind of have gotten. But I'd like a slightly older version though as he looked in They Came From Cordura or High Noon.
The entire principal cast of The Magnificent Seven as The Magnificent Seven.
Well, thats a start. I think everyone here has a pretty long list they would like. This is the start of mine.

Three little words.

The Rat Pack!

"Three little words, eight little letters, that simply mean I love you!"

Also, a line of the president would be something to get excited about.

PF Indiana Jones from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Clint Eastwood from any of his Spaghetti Western trilogy films

12inch "Saving Private Ryan" line. (They made the "Platoon" series so why not one for a fantastic WWII film?...)

Here are a few that would be unique:
Fay Wray and Bruce Cabot from 'King Kong"
James Mason as Capt. Nemo
George Reeves as Superman
John Phillip Law as Sinbad
Oliver Reed from 'Curse of the Werewolf'
Guy Williams as Zorro
Not so unique, but still most welcome...
12" Star Trek(Kirk, Spock, Picard ...)
Indiana Jones
Can't argue with a 'million BC Raquel, either...PS

I didn't realize they were lumping Scarface in with Wayne, I guess it's for celebrities that aren't from a particular movie and for movie figures where they only intend to do one character.

There aren't many larger than life celebrities like that - maybe the Beatles, Elvis, Marilyn, Bogart, Cagney. And perhaps the monster actors could be done under that line - Karloff, Lugosi, Chaney, Sr.

I think an Elvis would be awesome. (though I bet the license would be salty)
I agree with Bruce Lee,

others I like

Brandon Lee from the Crow
Jim Morrison From the Doors (younger morrison)
Johnny Depp from Edward Scissorhands
Hulk Hogan (old school Hogan)

Bruce Lee and Clint Eastwood would be great. You can have Bruce from Enter the Dragon and Game of Death and of course, Kato. Clint would be great as The Man with No Name, Josey Wales and of course, Dirty Harry.

I'd also love to see:

- The Godfather (Michael, Sonny & Don Corleone)
- The Matrix (Neo, Morpheus, Trinity & Smith)
- Braveheart (Mel Gibson)

I would pay mega-bux for a Godfather set (Don Corleone in his wedding tux??? How could you resist??), and regular bux for the Braveheart.

I'd also second the nomination for all who said Indiana Jones and Clint Eastwood characters. You could do an entire line of Clint...The Good, Bad, & Ugly, Fistfull of Dollars, Dirty Harry, etc. etc.

While most all of the names mentioned would probably wind up in my collection, I still would love for a line of "character actors" that could fill in anyone's collection from military to sci-fi to horror to crime drama etc.
Michael Ironside has been in V, Highlander [although the film is better left forgotten], Starship Troopers, Watchers....
Clancy Brown has been in Highlander, Starship Troopers....
Hell, they were both even in ER on TV.
There are lots of others but these 2 already have inclusion in the Highlander license, is there anyone who couldn't find a place in their 1:6 collection for them? :angelsmil

Just occured to me as I found an old Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blain in Casablanca figure. We gotta have one of those, the one I have now...well he doesn't look anything like Bogey (or is it ie?). This line is going to be so much fun. Oh and...
:horse
A presidents line.

Nice ideas all the way around, but I would like to see stuff that hasn't been done, even if Sideshow would do better.
Frontline did a Bogie, Toy Presidents has a pretty decent line of Presidents [and now 1st Ladies and religious/historic] figures, Jack Bauer's been done as has Bruce Willis, there's a plethora of Harrison Ford's out there, Eastwood has had several heads available....
If they were to make more personalities/characters I'd want to see ones that we haven't had thru other means.
Farscape
Firefly [wow some surprises in that movie, huh?]
This Island Earth [Exeter, Cal, Ruth, Brack]
expanding the U.M. licenses
TJ Hooker [don't laugh, it gives you movie version Kirk, John from "V", Tony from Time Tunnel and hey!! Heather Locklear!!]
Alien Nation [film and TV]
"V"
Planet of the Apes TV
Star Trek: Enterprise
NCIS

I would like to see SS do:

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones (This must be done:cool: )
Brandon Lee as The Crow

Also, they could do some kind of Wheadon anniversery thing in PF 1/4 scale too. i.e, David Boreanezas Angel and SM Geller as Buffy.

Angel could have Human/Vamp portrait removable heads like the Ironman/Predator maquettes.

I'd love to see a Billy Jack. And Laughlin could use the $ to make the next film.
Leo G Carroll would be great in a Man from U.N.C.L.E. line and Rathbone could certainly help broaden the UM license into finally giving us a DOCTOR!!!!!
Dr Phibes is already on the way from Majestic Studios.
