Should they make Borderlands figures?

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.

Should they make Borderlands figures?

Anyone else wish someone like Macfalene should make figures of famous borderlands characters and package them like they do with Halo? You could have weapon packs with class mods, grenade mods, etc. Then have the playable characters come with two signature weapons like Zer0 with a sniper and sword, Axton or Roland with a Launcher and assault rifle or somehow get their turrets in there. I dunno, I was just talking with my brother the other day and he liked the idea.

If so I would seriously get Zer0, Sledge, some Crimson Lancers/Raiders...

with the BL2 heads/skins combos, there's plenty of variety for repaints. I could see some of the specific manufacturer skins being made convention or store exclusives. I personally think the 3 and 3/4 inch scale would be best, as it'd give plenty of scope to release the larger creatures and vehicles, as well as making it relatively inexpensive to buy up multiples of the enemies, and get some weapons packs out.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn

Yeah exactly! They could do combo packs to with stuff like 2 skags,an alpha skag, and some sort of playable character or any other pandora inhabitant. Maybe with each wave they could release a boss or two as well.

NECA has the right to make Borderlands 1 and 2 figures. They've already made Claptrap and the Psycho Bandit. Plus, they've shown protos of the Borderlands 2 Zero, Salvadore, and Burning Psycho at SDCC.
