There’s one company that still wants to hear from the fans …
NJ Croce is the manufacturer of the most underrated action figures on the market. I say underrated because bendable figures are something of a niche.
The thing is, these guys — who are the Gumby people — are the best there is at what they do. Their items are high-quality, affordable, accurate and creative.
That’s about as good a compliment you can give, right?
My favorite line of theirs — unsurprisingly — is their Batman ’66 line. They’ve produced all the heavyweights: Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Joker, Penguin, Riddler and Catwoman, plus an excellent Batmobile, as well as Batman, Robin and Batmobile keychains.
Now, they want to know what you want.
“Nothing is for certain now, but we’re throwing around ideas for more villains in 2017, and possibly a new boxed set or two,” said Nick Croce, the company’s chief. “Definitely let us know what your readers would like to see; we’re listening!”
So it’s your turn: Who do you want to see the most? Mind you, they have to fall under the Warner Brothers license, so Alfred, Mr. Freeze and King Tut are fair game, for example, but Aunt Harriet, the Siren and the Minstrel are not.
Leave a comment below or in whichever social-media thread you found this. Give us two or three choices, not 10, because it’ll really help to narrow it down.
I’ll tally up the responses this week and post a follow-up story toward the end of this 50th anniversary celebration. And, more importantly, I’ll send the info on to NJ Croce.
These guys do listen, so tell us who you’re looking for to further populate your personal Gotham City.
