IT'S TIME AT LAST!

Zed's Favorite figures has begun, all week I will count down my favorite figures from the last year at ten per day all the way to #1.

This year I am a bit late due to some last minute arrivals to the list, but here we go.

First off the introduction (explaining what all this is about):

But if you want to jump ahead to the actual countdown here you go with #50-#41

Nice to see you have some pegwarmers on the list. I will be following this. I can't wait to see what the #1 figure is.

To me a pegwarmer doesn't equal bad fig, Most times I notice bad case ratios are to blame or over re issueing in later waves (GI Joe really suffered this in ROC with Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow)

I agree. There are are a lot of good peqwarmers. It also seems like if something is available and people see it's not selling, they automatically don't want it without giving it a chance.

The TRON Legacy line was a good example. Btw, even though Quorra was one of the rarer figures from that line, she still pegwarmed a bit here along with Jarvis. And Castor wasn't released because of likeness rights with the actor, not due to the bad sales. Some Castors were produced but had to be destroyed. JuliusMarx got one though.

Pegwarmer is tossed around a bit much too, sometimes I hear it and the wave being talked about has just come out.

For tron, I did like that line overall, but it could have been improved a bit too. But better than nothing I think.

Quorra pegwarmed, wow, I saw her once and grabber her, glad I did.

Something to whet you whistle with favorite figures this year, Totals: 16 GI Joes, 23, Marvel (Incuding The marvel movies, but to be fair there are very few of the Movie figures), 5 Star Wars (not at all by choice, that was distrobution), 6 other (Thundercats, Unimax, ect).

If Skarr is #28 I can only imagine that World War Hulk is #1.

Actually, WWH technically came out last year (I got him in Dec 2010, although he is listed as 2011) so as such he came in #10 in last year's list. However the compettion was a bit feircer last year too. I struggled with #1 2010 a lot, this year there was no quesiton.
