"Regular Show" has quickly become one of our favorite animated series and manages to be yet another TV show related to park maintenance that can continually bring us laughs. Who knew that our public parks were such a comedy goldmine?! Jazwares did, that's who! In fact, they've apparently got the license to produce toys based on Regular Show's cast of oddball characters, starting with a leaked 3-D sculpt of the main character: Mordecai!
The photo comes from Jazwares' facebook page after they screen grabbed it from, show creator, J.G. Quintel's Twitter. Social networking weaves a tangled web yet again! In light of this photo, and with nothing else to go on, we've decided to jump the gun and chime in on the top ten "regular show" toys we'd like to see. Of course, by "toys" we mean "action figures."
10. Mr. Maellard -
Why is he at number 10 when he is obviously a crotchety moon rock/lollipop who is incredibly weathy and owns the park almost everyone in the show works at? Because trust us, he's not the only rich, candy-based, character on this list-- and how many could we really get away with?
9. Sensai -
The Death Kwon Do instructor has everything a toy collector could want: a sculpted physique, cut up jeans, wicked fightnig skills, and a facial hair/mullet combo that would rival even the greatest of 80s action stars! He should come with his Death Kwon Do instruction book and a push-button Death Punch action feature.
8. Death -
The badass taker of souls, who sucks at arm wrestling and bowling, is really the only true villain in the show. He should come with a removable life-restoring loogie, and a bowling ball filled with souls.
7. Margaret -
Moredcai's secret love , (and all around great coffee shop waitress) Margaret is a surefire winner as the lone female in our fantasy lineup. She should come with a Fist Pump t-shirt and a tray with a couple of cups of coffee for Mordecai to anxiously spill as he makes a fool of himself while trying to win her affection.
6. Benson -
Nothing makes a cool toy like "standing around passive aggressively" action, and Benson would totally have that covered! The gum-filled boss of the park crew would need his trusty clipboard. The self-loathing for his hiring Mordecai and Rigby would just be a freebie.
5. Skips -
The sane one of the group, who is cursed with only the ability to skip, is a natural fit for an action figure. Hell, he's voiced by Mark Hamill who has ahd about a thousand action figures already! Give him a weight bench and flock him with fuzzy white fur.
4. High-Five Ghost -
3. Muscle Man -
2. Rigby -
Sure it's a given that he's gonna make the cut, but after seeing the Mordecai sculpt, we instantly have the need for his partner in crime! To fill packaging space since Rigby is so small in stature, we vote that he come with his Hulk Hogan-esque wrestling doll.
1. Pops -
If you've ever watched Regular Show, then you know Pops' insane meanderings make things better everytime his mustachioed face is onscreen. Some sweets (his drug of choice), his creepy doll, and a removeable tophat would help immortalize him in plastic.
That's it for this exercise in time-killing. Let us know in the Comments section if you agree, disagree, or who you'd pick instead-- or don't. Either way, we'll give an update to Jazwares "Regular Show" toys as more info is released. In the meantime, be sure to catch "Regular Show" on Mondays at 8p EST only on Cartoon Network!
