looking for a different product line, could use suggestions.

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

ok, so I recently took a look at bigbad toy store, not my first time looking there but still... I noticed they have more brands and whatnot then I was able to comprehend.

I really need a new kind of actioon figure too collect. as much as I love TF's I just have too many, as for superheros, whgile I don't have many major big name heros, I still have grown somewhat tired of them. I don't have many starwars, but I do have alot of GIjoe''s and generic soldiers, which are all the same old thing to me. I ahve some TMNT figures, but need no more. The only figure thats different from the rest is my Twisted metal Sweet Tooth. Which I'll (hopefully) never take out of the box.

I really need somehting new, fun, and just plain different.

this is what a was thinking,

something Anime related, perahps a cute magical/sorceress girl type of character or anything else for that matter,

somthing non-tf Robot or Mecha , like gundam, or who knows what. I do have some broken Battle scared gundam parts lying around, but they don't count.

maybe something horror related? but probally not, I don't want to sleep while sweet tooth has a another psychopathic murderer with a chainsaw in my room... one is already enougth...


at this point i'm out of ideas, and as for the ones i mentioned, I don't know what brand or product lines to chose from, could anyone spark my interest into another different kind of action figure?

I think Revoltech has figures in all 3 of those categories. Most of it's robot stuff from things I've never heard of, but they do have Anime, a few horror, and even Disney figures.

Lots of options out there as far as poseable figs from Japan. Revoltech is already mentioned and has many series and characters in that line. The Figma line is one that has a good amount of anime girls. The SIC line if you're into Kamen Rider. I think Figuarts is one that released some Dragonball figs and One Piece figs. There's also Busou Shinki from Konami if you're into anime girls with lots of armor, weapon, and mecha parts.

I love the Master of the Universe Classics line, but not sure how "different" it would be for you.

They also are releasing a new Voltron Lion through MattyCollector.com. When all of the lions combine it will be 23 inches tall and look pretty impressive on any shelf.
