    What Sportsmen (women) would you like to see in 1/6?

    In a similar vein to the musicians thread, and an offshoot of the soccer babes discussion, what sporting legends would you like figures made? Apart from Enterbay's basketball players, a few Man U players and the Storm Toys Mike Tyson, there been very little from the sporting arena. Most people follow one sport or another, so there must be some interest in figures. It would make a nice change from Clones and Iron men.

    I'm a big fan of motorsport, so a Senna or Schumacher would be nice. I'd quite like an Andre Agassi figure as well, back in the day, when he wore loud shirts and those funny shorts.

    All wishlists are pretty pointless, but there's never been one for sports, so why not.

    It'd cost a fortune, but, James Hunt and his McLaren.

    Cam Newton or Jonathan Stewart - Carolina Panthers.
    Not into normal british sports, so an American football figure would be my ideal :-)

    Re: What Sportsmen (women) would you like to see in 1/6?

    Maybe some:
    - Olympic Biathlon- really cool sport, crazy looking gear and rifles etc
    - Women's Hockey - I swear, while the men take out their pent-up frustration on fights, the women players put 100% of their aggression into great hockey. I'd love to see a Hayley Wickenheiser figure
    - Civilian hunter - cool gear, weapons
    - NHL player - 'cause I'm Canadian, deal with it
    - Competitive shooter - awesome gear
    - NBA - Kobe!!
    - Tour de France cyclist - the bikes!!! This would be awesome IMO
    - James Hunt + McLaren - 2X!
    - Nikki Lauda
    - Motorcycle racer + bike
    - Caber toss pro - 'cause why not

    I think a generic modern American football uniform - no licensing costs, something that could just be "a football player" by itself but also that bashers could work with -- would do extremely well. People are still making do with old GI Joe parts from the Army/Navy set, that's nuts.

    Suprised there's no Ayrton Senna figure, also would love a Jim Clark figure.
    - and, he may not technically be a sportsman, but I really want a Steve McQueen from Le Mans.

    And yeah, it has turned into another wish thread. .

    Anyone willing to pick up some clay and start sculpting? Anyone going to start on those Red Sox uniforms? Anyone going to ask Enterbay if they can make a Wayne Gretzky?

    No? Then forget this, because it won't happen.

    so that "forget this" snap is a bit of a cheap shot. Some people enjoy the pure fantasy wish list aspect so don't unnecessarily pour cold water on it. A few of these suggestions might have a chance of someday being made and we all know that most don't. We could talk about what it takes to get Sports figures made, and how they have different challenges in licensing, topicality, etc but that's another thread.

    There are those who look at figures that get made, and ask why... I dream of figures that were never made, and ask why not.

    It hasn't turned into one, it was started as one. If it bothers you, please feel free to ignore it.

    Most wishlists are dominated with Conan, Mad Max, Commando, Blade Runner et al. Not too surprising and yes, a bit of a waste of time to repeat them over and over. Sports stars however, haven't really been touched on. I had no idea what sort of responses i would get from this, but if there are 20 requests for a figure of say, Muhammed Ali, then one of the manufacturers might think "we'll look into that". If you don't ask, you won't get.

    Also, who's to say that figures we're getting now, weren't as a result of being on wishlists a few years ago? Whilst many releases these days seem to be dictated by whatever Marvel are bringing out, occasionally there are some surprises. Snake Plissken, Nathan Drake and the unfortunately cancelled Dredd were all common requests on previous wishlists.

    I like wish lists, they're a harmless bit of fun on a rainy day and it's been a rainy day here! As they say, dreaming is free...., but Hot Toys costs a blimmin fortune!

    Why would anyone want Red Sox uniforms? Though you did remind me that Derek Jeter definitely needs to be made.

    Just kidding.

    Well, not about the Red Sox.

    I love my Sox, even in the bad years. I remember them all from '68 forward. Love Jeter, always a class act. But I have to post:



    Greatest player to play the game! An old Johnny Hero Red Sox uniform with giveaway helmet. Ted never wore a helmet( other than a flight helmet) but it was all I had at the time.

    Re: What Sportsmen (women) would you like to see in 1/6?

    I'd love to see a pro speedball player in tournament gear with a LV1 paintball marker. Jersey, facemask, screwable hp air tank, pod carrier, etc. I play paintball with my kids and ya, it would be easy enough to kit together a rec player in camo bash, but I'd rather want the bright jersey colors and such to make him stand out.

    Would also like to see a college lax player and 1927 NY Yankee player such as Lou Gehrig in the flannel uniform, wood bat, real leather glove and spiked cleats. Have him come with a weathered base and ball as well.
