So, we've got all the basic genre ideas. Things like sci-fi, steam punk, western, pulp, etc. have all been brought up-so now's your chance to bring up specific models you'd like to see. Any post that is not a specific request for a miniature will be removed to make it easier to compile later.

How about a Not-Wash (Firefly pilot) mini, ie civilian guy in Hawaiian shirt?

I would like to also see a c.1948-50 US Air Policeman (Air Force version of MP). Everyone needs someone to guard the Air Force Base where they are experimenting on those 'weather balloon pilots' that crashed near a certain NV town.

I said it before and I will say it again: Sho-Nuff the Shogun of Harlem!

As a man of girth I would love to see heroic overweight models like Hurley from Lost. Also since everyother line has it we need a not Laura Croft mini too.

Rach / Adonese / Malvernian / Ritterlich Infantry.

all those + Humans with an AT-23 missile launcher.

Retro Power Armored Heavy Infantry - Weird WW2 types, 40mm bases. Guys the .1948-50 US Air Policeman can call for back-up when the weird, silver small dudes come back for their buddies.

Ninja in different poses.

G.U.A.R.D. grunts/foot soldiers.

More Sligg.

Modern Vampire Slayers

Slasher type horror guys

Not-Terminators

Cyborgs

Hooded Cultist

Didn't realize the other thread was closed. This might not be a specific figure but I think G.U.A.R.D. needs a ruthless terriost organization determined to rule the world. For this I was thinking along the lines of Cobra from G.I. Joe or maybe more like Hydra from Marvel comics. Couple leader types and foot soldier/grunts.

Female N.O.V.A. Guard [w/o weapon (so can add various weapons) or choice of arms/weapons]
Military/Security/Police Dog (ex: German Sheperd)
Alternate Pose N.O.V.A. Guard [w/o weapon (so can add various weapons) or choice of arms/weapons]
Galactic Marine [w/o weapon (so can add various weapons) or choice of arms/weapons]
Female Galactic Marine [w/o weapon (so can add various weapons) or choice of arms/weapons]
Sprue of sci-fi/modern heads (male/female)
Sprue of sci-fi/modern heavy weapons [examples based off of CAV: FA-45 MG ('SAW'), AA-52 DFM ('Stinger'), AT-23 DFM ('LAW'), Grenade Launcher, etc.]
A 'Not-Alien' xenomorph
Modern/Sci-fi pilot in flight/g-suit
Alternate Sci-fi races [examples based off of CAV: Rach, Adonese, Malvernian, Ritterlich]

I'll hold off on the other ideas for now. :blush:

The other thread is closed because I'm compiling it so I can send it to Reaper so they have a handy dandy document of everything that's been requested. By closing it, I make sure I don't end up missing posts as they're added-which is why this one was opened.

2 more poses of galactic marines with assault rifles
2 more poses of NOVA guards
(please have Bobby Jackson do these so they stay the same style) People like me want to be able to make squads of these guys for other games so you will sell more by having more poses I think.

splinter cell type infiltrator
human sized ,mean, reptillian sci fi troopers
more space thugs like Boris (for pirates, smugglers, ect..)
some not-locust aliens from Gears of War

Cathode Ray guns.

Electrodes for machinery, and in particular, sized such that they can be pinned onto existing models to make them like radio controlled flesh golem/Frankenstein monsters.

Sprues of weapons with hands specifically tailored to fit most of the Reaper range. Modern, black powder, and also melee weapons. You'd be surprised how many models can be fitted this way, even from different ranges. The hand attached makes for an easy conversion, and would have loads of crossover appeal.

Here are a few suggestions off the cuff.

-More intergalactic marines with a few new personalities.
-Civilians, civilians, civilians. The more and more variety the better. This is one of the biggest lacking elements the better.
-I also second the "average" hero concept ala Hurley from Lost. Everyday people, maybe not so perfect, maybe not so attractive. Additions of a number of SKU's along these lines would be a plus!
-Modern and historical "add on" items. Weapons packs are cool, but things like books, backpacks, frying pans, and other everyday items would be a big plus.
-A group of gamer geeks/convention goers.
-A group of street hockey players (with options on making them hooligan/gang members)
-A twitchy, born again, mischief making purveyor of questionable items and his "Silent" partner (Who knows, it could be made official)
-More anime based concepts.
-More Steampunk/Chronotech concepts (keep them coming!)
-Modern ninjas with personalities.
-Terrorists (and not just of the Middle Eastern persuasion).
-A football/rugby hooligan with optional .50 Caliber Desert Eagle.
-Photographers (civilian, combat, or scared Japanese schoolgirls armed with magical cameras to "steal" spirits)
-Shinto Priests, shrine maidens, eastern style monks.
-The local vicar/preacher/priest (shotgun optional).
-More "modern horror" concepts.
-More Cthulhu Mythos (and related writings) monsters.
-The King In Yellow in a very dynamic pose.
-Mardi Gras performers/revelers.
-More bikers.
-Since historical figures are playing a big part of Chronoscope. How about a number of SKU's that depict Pershing's expedition into Mexico. It would be cool to have some really good banditos and a historically accurate Pancho Villa. What would be even more cool would be to have several SKUs of pre-WWI US troopers, a machine gun crew, motorcycle riders, Pershing himself, and to top it off a dynamic figure of a young George Patton going to town with his ivory handled revolvers (if anything else, PLEASE consider this concept. it would be a big seller). This is an era of history that is not touched on much and figures from it would fit in well with everything from the latter days of the wild west, to steampunk games.

Shadowrun-style fantasy races...
Like a troll in a business suit holding a big handgun with some kind of datalink wire hooked into his wrist or head.
A teenaged male faerie dressed as a skate punk with a skateboard or grav-board.
Tough-looking faeries dressed in combat gear or gang clothes with weapons like assault rifles, chains or swords.
An orc in a sharp-looking military dress uniform.

I like the idea of 1950's USAF guards. Some more 50's style sci-fi/horror characters would be nice as well. The ubiquitous general, the handsome mature scientist, the dotty old scientist, the dotty old scientist's pretty daughter, the dashing Air Force officer, the little kid who was the only who saw "IT", giant ants, etc.

I'd like to see more pulp adventure types as well. Dashing aviators, heroic female investigative reporter.

I'd like to see some Indy look-alikes as well. Guys that are not exactly dressed the same as Indiana Jones, but have the same kind of look. There's a great old movie call "Only Angles Have Wings", starring Cary Grant and Jean Arthur, which is full of the kinds of costumes I'm thinking of. I swear George Lucas got his idea for Indiana Jone's costume from this movie.

Lon Chaney Phantom of the Opera

Killer Clowns

Thugs

More Supers

Alien Smugglers like the cantina scene in Star Wars

I believe I have mentioned my love of ninjas previously

Evil masterminds. Perhaps one holding a cat.

Space cops. The Marshal was a good start.

Trying to think of more but I do like everybodies ideas so far.

Sort of inspired by the story behind the Mike Noe figure...

Why not minis of the sculptors and painters themselves? lol ::D:
