Essential Seven Female Action Figures Wishlist

The action figure market is primarily dominated by male action figures. Little boys don’t want a girl action figure. Because of this, very few female characters are ever created for toy lines. Princess Leia, April O’Neil, and Scarlett are a few of the more successful female action figures.

The older collector market is not affected by gender. We embrace unique toy lines, and the lesser known characters. That leads to this week’s list the Essential Seven Female Action Figure Wishlist:

7) Sophia Petrillo

Wise cracking Sophia Petrillo is my favorite Golden Girl. I loved her smart-ass remarks on Dorothy’s non-existing love life;  Rose’s stupidity; and Blanche’s promiscuity with hundreds of men. She was the voice of truth, and would make an awesome action-figure.

Purse Smashing Action

Tan bamboo handbag, Captain Jack’s Seafood Shanty Pirate Uniform, and her famous tomato sauce.

6) Tangina

Eccentric spiritual medium Tangina Barrons was brought in to find Carol Anne in Poltergeist. After discovering that Carol Anne is in another dimension she comes up with a rescue plan. While Tangina coaxes the spirits away from Carol Anne Diane, enters the closet with a rope to retrieve her from purgatory.

Special Features:
A voice chip that plays the line “This house is Clean!”

Rope, 2 tennis balls (covered in goo), and that evil clown toy.

6) Lorraine McFly

Before you comment, yes we know that there are BTTF minimates! They aren’t action figures! In Back to the Future, the 1955 version of Lorraine has a crush on her future son who was attempting to return to the year 1985.  Thirty years later, the Lorraine McFly who is depressed and drunk all the time would make a far more interesting figure. Other versions of Lorraine could be the Enchantment Under the Sea dance and the alternative 1985 breast implant variation.

Special Features:
Alcohol drinking arm action!

Box of peanut brittle, cigarettes, bottle of alcohol, and Uncle Jailbird Joey’s Cake

4) Catherine Tramell

Psycho killer Catherine Tramell takes out her victims with an icepick. When she is brought into questioning she gives the police a glimpse of her cooter. I don’t remember much about Basic Instinct except for this famous scene. That scene screams action figure.

Leg spreading action.

Cigarettes, ice pick,  fur coat, and underwear that you can take on and off.

3) Vicki

Voice Input Child Identicant (V.I.C.I.),  or Vicki was a robot modeled after a real human girl built by Ted Lawson. The character had superhuman could elongate her neck, super-strength, speed, and shrink. Sounds like a great action figure to me!

Special Features:
Three panel openings: AC outlet under her right arm, a parallel port under her left arm, and an access panel in her back.

The large cabinet she sleeps in.

2) Joan Holloway

The ’60s look and feel of Mad Men would make a perfect action figure line. I personally would love to see Joan Holloway, the office manager of the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency, as an action figure. Christina Hendricks curvy body lends itself to the form.

Swivel hips & bouncing breasts

Cigarettes (every character smokes on this show)

1) River Tam

We were so close to getting a River Tam figure from the Serenity line. However, they chose to ignore the second most important character from the film! Serenity didn’t do very well at the box office, and the toy line never continued.

Kicking & Punching Action

Tons of weapons to kick Reaver Ass!

Don’t forget, the Hot Toys Sarah Connor figure is available for pre-order from
