A new series of Dungeons and Dragons Figures, done in 4" scale, similair to the old Characters but with obviously better sculpts (although I do love the old sculpts) and better articulation (although for their time they had decent articulation).

And who would you like to see appear in the line, and what new characters would you add from the Dungeons and Dragons universe.

I second this! I would also want to see the playtest characters from the 3rd Edition Player's Handbook made into figures! And then just go down the line, a genric Lich, Vecna, Kaz, Warduke, Lord Soth, Count Strahd.... ect. ect. ect. Also I'm all for the animated series characters!

I would kill for a six inch figure of Iuz the Evil and Iggwilv!!!

I'd love to get figures based on the animated series.

BTW, this should probably go in the Hasbro forum since they own the game now, highly unlikely that they'd license an action figure line out to another company.

Me, too.

But as much as I love the vintage AD&D line, I'm not sure I'd want an update. I feel like the simple and almost cartoonish quality of the originals would probably be scrapped for a hyper-realistic tone. Granted, I'd probably buy into that, too. But I'm just a big fan of the aesthetics of the originals.

I always prefer when companies create original properties instead of rehashing something from the past.

Yeah James heard it before move on. I tell you what I wouldn't mind and that's Tiamat, also like the Thought of getting a Lord Soth, throw in a Tanis and I would be happy. You could make them in sets for instance a Greyhawk set, a Dragonlance Set, Basic Character Set and so on.

Or even make an updated Cartoon and base the characters of the cartoon, in fact you could either reboot the cartoon or do a follow on age the characters from the original cartoon make Bobby 18 yrs old and the rest in their 20's (Obviously Hank would be the oldest, and you could either make them return to Dungeon Master World, or better yet they never ever got home).

As much as I loved it back then-- I could only get through about 4 episodes before I resold it online (it was a gift)--

I would take figures of them though, but I also would prefer figures of the Dragonlance novel characters--I really want a Tika Figure...
