It’s been a good year in plastic form. A lot of new faces have made it into my collection and a lot of them were sold off or given better homes. Before the year ends I’m sure I’ll have another batch of figures waiting for me on my doorstep but for now these are my top five figures of the year.
5. NECA – RoboCop
A lot of my NECA figures just stand there, they tend to break easy. Haven’t had one do it to me yet but I seen many examples. With RoboCop, I have him standing on my shelf looking cool and that’s all I need out of a RoboCop figure.
4. AEW Unrivaled – Thunder Rosa
I been wanting a Thunder Rosa action figure since I first saw her on NWA Power. I was glad she signed with AEW because that gave me hope that she would get a figure of her own and she did, three of them!
3. Wulf’s Chop Shop – Corny
I don’t buy a lot of custom figures but when I do they mean something. I always liked Jim’s “That’s My Opinion” promos and the best way for me to remember those hot takes is in figure form. Chop Shop has made many figures this year but I gotta say this one is the best.
2. Marvel Legends – Morph (X-Men Animated Series VHS Collection)
I have bought and sold Marvel Legends a few times over but this time I’m sticking to my collection. First time around I was trying to build the animated series team but at that time Morph wasn’t available… Until now! When Hasbro announced their Morph figure I got back into the ML game and hopefully sometime in January I’ll have the team complete. Waiting on that Cyclops.
1. McFarlane DC Multiverse – Dark Knight Returns Robin (Carrie Kelley)
What a wonderful and spot on this figure is. When McFarlane announced this wave of figures I got excited because Todd can’t do no wrong when it comes to Batman and he knocked the whole wave out of the park. Do you know how big the Build-to-Collect horse is? It’s huge… Robin scales well next to Batman she’s a short figure and you can put her into so many dynamic poses with a flight stand. The head sculpt alone is near perfect and she comes with a sling shot.
