I'm a fan of Fringe, and would ABSOLUTELY LOVE action figures based on characters from that series! I mean, it has a wide range of characters, all of whom could be turned into figure.
What do people think?

I'd also like Warehouse 13 figures...

I agree on Fringe figures but it doesn't seem like Fox has any idea how to market the show, so merchandising might be unlikely at this point. Also, after McFarlane's Lost figure line fizzled out, I'm sure there's an industry-wide nervousness about toys based on American TV shows. I'm hoping the Dexter figures turn out to be a massive success so things like Fringe figures have a better chance of being made.

McFarlane only makes statues with 1, or if you're lucky, 2 joints.
I suggest for figures to sell well, make 'em articulated, and make them look like who the are supposed to portray. Why do you think the 2009 Star Trek line was such a failure?

As talented as Character Options is, they should expand their business and make figures of other series and so on.

I sent them an email and, for once, I actually got a reply!

Thank you for your email.

We have no current plans to produce Figure based on Series such as
Sherlock, Being Human, Warehouse 13 and a Town Called Eureka.

Hope this fully answers your query.

Regards,



Gemma Morris

Customer Service Advisor

I'm also assuming that this mean Fringe figures are also out of the question. It's a shame as well.

Yeah, I realized that CO is actually geared towards children's lines. Maybe Sci-Fi Collector?

I would not exactly call Dr. Who a children's line.

I'd like Warehouse 13 toys too. Very Happy I'd buy a Pete. Laughing

If they were in scale with Doctor Who, I'd take them all. Ever since watching it, I've been picturing A Who/Warehouse Crossover...(alright, actually I've been picturing Ten getting zapped by Pete or Myka's tesla guns). Same with Fringe (Having Four and Walter in an argument).

you raise a good point, jaredofmo. I've emailed them about the possibility and IF I get a reply, I'll let you know (though they have a good track record of answering my emails, unlike CO)
