Inspired by Shaftyboy, and my own boredom, here is a new wishlist/game.

Think of what monsters you'd like to see released as classic "army builders", ie figures that you would be multiples of, to have 'armies' that the Doctor can confront. These figures would be basically the same mould over and over, with maybe a repaint or minor sculpt varation from figure to figure. In other words, something CHEAP for CO to produce.

They can be 2-packs, 3-packs, or 4-packs. They could be mixed in with pre-existing figures or Minor (repaint) variants, BUT the only "NEW" figure in the set could be the army-builder itself.
And who knows... maybe if CO sees this list, they'll get an idea of which figures they can re-release in different 'sets', without incurring too much aggravation among the customer base.

By way of examples, I'll get started. For the sake of my sanity, and yours, I'll exclude Daleks... but you don't have to.

Wheel-In-Space Cybermen 2-pack.
Auton 2-pack
Silurian 2-pack
Gallifreyan Guard 2-pack
Sontaran 2-pack
Ogron 2-pack
Draconian 2-pack

Each of the above could easily be paired with a companion, in a future release!

Brig (as hopefully he won't be new by then) with Unit Troops (or troops with any Unit monster foe)
tractator 2 pack - they might look cool as toys... Same with terrileptils
Classic time lord pack (some minor changes can yield loads of different figures)

War Machines! As with the Robots of Death figures, they could come with a sheet of identification number stickers so we can make all the different variants.

Yeah, I'd like to see some of these. Love this thread concept, by the way. Breathes some new life into the forum. Well done.

Here'd be my wish list:

Sea Devil 2 Pack

Silurian 2 pack

Unit Troops w/ the Brig (though TBH it's a bit dodgy doing army building with humans. All of them looking the same kind of ruins it for me. Because of this, I think 3 different heads for the UNIT rank and file would be great (and the most we could probably hope for). Maybe some uniform variety too (beret, helmet, etc.)

I've already got 3 Earthshock cybermen (the type I prefer), so an Earthshock Cyberleader with 2 cybermen would also be most welcome.

Doubt we'll be getting that though, so this may be the one and only custom I do: a Cyberleader. I think it'd just be painting the two pipes on the side of his head black, no?

I think that's about it for me, really.

I thought UNIT only had two troopers, Stuart Fell and Derek Ware. They seemed to be the two who'd get killed each week. But maybe there are enough actors to warrant 3 different heads, barely... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_UNIT_personnel
