Lots of things in this life make me happy, but a couple that happen to be pretty high on the list are: giant robots & action figures! That's why NECA's recent release of toys based on the upcoming "Pacific Rim" film, by Legendary Pictures and my favorite director Guillermo del Toro, caused my heart to practically burst from my chest with excitement! After the ensuing trip to the hospital, I contacted Randy Falk, King of NECA Toys & All Things Heavy Metal*, about the upcoming figures and the working relationship between the film-making process and the action figure madness!

Woo-Hoo! NECA has just announced a collaboration with 20th Century Fox to put out a limited set of figures celebrating classic guest stars on Fox's "The Simpsons," with Tom Hanks, Kid Rock, Hal Hefner, Yao Ming and James Brown in the first wave of 25 projected figures available in 2014.  They will have my money if the Brown figure goes, "This bandstand wasn't double-bolted!  Huh!"

But which guest-stars will make up the remaining figures in this line?

Now, what's of note is that these are guest stars playing themselves, as opposed to voicing original characters.  This is a gray and complicated area that demands deep thought, maybe.

I'm going out on a limb and saying that Mel Gibson won't get a figure, despite hanging extensively with Homer back in the day.  I am further uncertain as to whether this precludes Johnny Cash as the voice of the spirit-coyote Homer saw after eating Guatemalan insanity peppers, or John Waters as the very John Waters-esque John the kitsch-shop owner.   And what about David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as their "X-Files" characters?  And then there's the entire issue of Michael Jackson as "Michael Jackson."

At this point, I'm very confused.

Well, look: Here's a wish-list for some of our favorites, with appropriate outfits/accessories.  Ah, memories: Read More...
