Player Figurines

I used to collect football figures (they made some cricket and rugby etc) like made by Corinthian PLC, and they made soooo many etc.
Anyway, cut to the chase-I would love to see models/figures/dolls, whatever made of some players. You'd only have to do top 10 or something, obviously would be great to see loads, but I don't know how to go about getting them to notice us.
Maybe if we put forward a collection of our ideas/petition, would be awesome Anyone like the idea of the figures?

Jim Thomas - Max Mirnyi - Jordan Kerr - Rohan Bopanna - Andy Roddick - Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi - Ilia Bozoljac - Chris Haggard - Jan-Michael Gambill - Donald Young - Nathan Healey - Lleyton Hewitt - Jamie Murray - Olivier Rochus - James Blake - Vince Spadea - Tim Henman - John Isner - Travis Parrott - Paul Goldstein - Tim Henman - Wes Moodie - Arnaud Clement - Michael Russell - Jeff Coetzee

Re: Player Figurines

I fully agree. I've got hundreds of those Corinthians ones somewhere. They had that Roddick bobblehead one which was pretty poor, other than that I haven't really seen any. I'd buy them, I'm guessing the market just isn't really there if they're not making them.

Yeah, I've seen the Roddick one, but was very big-and looked nothing like him. But the Corinthians were small so they were awesome, and didn't move-just looked legendary. I had loads but sold a lot, they went well... still got a few esp the Aussie rugger team

I've still got most of mine. I could never part with some, like the David Ginola and Jurgen Klinsmann in a Spurs shirt

What you are looking for is a business plan. Judging by you already desperately bumping this thread, it doesn't look like this will be a lucrative venture for any company to take on.

I made a plan aaages ago, like a whole folder, but chucked most of it away when I got interested in something else. I planned to make the Aus Davis Cup team.

Re: Player Figurines

I'd like to see it, and I'd definitely grab a couple

got a whole bunch of old figurines here, although none based on real-life people, or even athletes....closest one is Casey Jones from teenage mutant ninja turtles

Yeah, they were a hot item on TV commercials back in the early to mid-90s. Definitely a trend as you would label it. You never see them anymore and there were so many as you put it.

I have the classics locked away in their carrying cases including the ring, belts, accessories. They would probably be worth something in the next 20-30 years. Especially if one of today's wrestlers made it big in a sporting event or some form of competition (Rock - Movies, Brock Lesnar - football tryouts with MIN)

It was just so much fun to re-create the matches that went on back in the day. Do their moves (though you had to move them manually as their build-in spring-loaded mechanisms didn't give off the same execution )
