A Hasbroverse combined line of 1/25 scale M.A.S.K, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Action Man and C.O.P.S.

Being 1/25 scale it would mean vehicles wouldn't be cost prohibitive.

I suggested this some time back on this site. Hasbro was trying to figure out how to create a shared universe across its brands. I thought they could have a system which works across numerous brands. Call it something like CORE technology. Basically, all the toys have a universal joint system which allows for swapping of parts. Each brand can focus on a different type of play pattern.

Inhumanoids. Construction vs monsters.
MASK. Vehicles.
GI JOE. Military.
ROM. Space technology vs aliens.
Visionaries. Technology meets fantasy.

Just to keep it to those 5 for now. You can mix and match parts between the lines via a port system. Maybe the figures can mix and match as well, ala Mega Construx figures.

Per your suggestion, COPS and Action Man could be utilized as well.

I can’t really think of anything. Most of the properties I love have had figure lines dedicated to them at some point. Unless you were to start getting into the minutiae of artist specific figures or figures that appeared in specific comic storylines, tv shows, video games, novels and never expanded beyond that one specific thing.

For instance I love Jurassic Park, but outside of a handful of toys made by Kenner, I don’t think we’ve ever seen figures that were based entirely on the first two novels written by Michael Crichton. So if Mattel did an offshoot of the Amber Collection that featured characters solely from the books then that would be cool.

I also really like the Spider-Man Clone Saga but beyond Ben Reilly, Kaine in his Scarlet Spider costume and Jackal, we haven’t seen much in Legends or anywhere else. And there were around 60 characters that only appeared in that storyline that never saw the light of day in figure form or in any other spidey book following this era. And the characters that weren’t unique at least had unique costumes that haven’t been made in legends form yet either. Hopefully it’s only a matter of time before those figures see the light of day.

I would love a 1/12 scale Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat (Storm Collectibles are nice, but you can't display them with Legends). I just discovered that Figuarts had a SFV line, but it seems like it was never finished and some of those figures are really pricey.

Also, a line of popular action TV show characters and vehicles. I would focus on the 80s, but thats my bread and butter:

- Knight Rider
- The A-Team
- Miami Vice
- Magnum PI

Sure, because it's not like it's shown on a number of channels or streaming platforms.

Gargoyles and SilverHawks were my two biggest ones for so long. I really have to sit and think on what I still would really like to see.

Freakazoid is a big one. I love that cartoon so much and those character designs would make for such fun figures.

And in that same vein, The Tick. I have the solo Tick that what’s-his-face made. It’s a fine figure but it’s starting to change color and I’d like a larger cast of characters.

James Bond would be cool. I’m not really a huge Bond fan, but at the very least I’d LOVE to have a decent Brosnan Bond to add to my video game shelf.

I've always wanted some figures from Underworld. I know it's not like an amazing movie, but the characters are pretty toyetic. I'd love to at least have Selene and Victor.

I was just going to post this exact Wish list.

Multiple TV properties under one banner name.

So many great characters need modern 6” or 7” figures.

I could easily come up with 100 figures for this line but I’ll only post 10 :)

1.Dukes of Hazard
2.Gary Coleman
3.Kolchak
4.6 Million Dollar Man
5.Greatest American Hero
6.Classic Battlestar Galactica
7.CHIPS
8.Welcome Back Kotter
9.The Monkees
10.Land of the Lost

It seems MEGO is doing this but those figures/dolls aren’t the greatest imo.

There was a series back in the day, but it was still when everybody was doing 'action' statuary; and they were poorly-received overall.

Where the hell is my ExoSquad revival, you dumb PlayMates bastards?!?

Yeah, they weren't good at the time, I do remember that. My wife had never seen Underworld before, and it was available on Netflix, so I put it on. As we were watching, I started to think there are a lot of good action figure options there.

I have to admit I would love to have these for sure! Especially Magnum PI. I would want the whole gang. The theme song has always grabbed my attention. I find myself really liking the new series too but the original has always been my favorite. I like The Rockford Files a whole lot too!
