Toys based on video games (And vice versa)

So, being the well rounded nerd that I am, I collect toys alongside playing games and reading comic books (And I have a social life...I swear...).
I love when my favorite VG characters are made 1/20th their size and turned into plastic, so I snatch up whatever I can at local toy stores and the occasional Gamestop.
Some of the best are the Halo toys:

(And you should see the Halo3 ones...*drool*)

Also, the Street Fighter has a good series going now, which I NEED to get a Zangief for.

But my all time favorites were the Marvel Vs. Capcom toys:

It's kinda hard to tell, but that is the single best Mega Man toy to ever exsist.

So, does your geekdom reach into the realm of ball joints and articulation?

Edit:
I forgot I threw that Vice Versa in there, but I was talking about games like Lego Star Wars, or that AWESOME Dreamcast game Toy Commander.

    Halo figures are nice, Fallout figures would be nicer.

    I had the Marvel Vs Capcom megaman. I will indeed second that it was the greatest megaman toy ever.

    I forget what it came with, aside from megaman and some armor. Was a marvel character even included?

    Edit: Ohh, right. A bad-ass war machine toy.

    I actually had this as a kid. I don't think I ever played it.

    Edit: On the Vice Versa side of things, the Micro Machines games were some of the best toy-based games I've ever played.

    I liked the Starcraft space marine figure.

    But the only videogame figures I've ever longed for are mecha. Wanzers and Armored Cores.

    I wish they would. Doublefine have pretty much made all kinds of merch except for figures. Which I need. D:

    Also, have there ever been Monkey Island figurines? I also want them to exist. :P

    Most of the vg toys I have are either LoZ:OoT action figures (Link, Ganondorf, Impa and Zelda) and some old Mario Kart action figures. I'd find pics, but eh.

    Im pretty sure we already have a thread on videogames figures, but that up for the mods to decide.

    Personally, I like seeing figures from games, but they are so fucking difficult to find in Florida half the time. The best place here locally that sells figures that i know of is hot topic and F.Y.E

    I'm not really fond of most of the Halo action figures.

    Arbiter looks like "DUUUUUUUUUUHH"

    I have the Starcraft Marine(blue), special order Marine(red), Hydra, Zealot and one Zealot in the box in mint condition. They are pretty pimp atop my desk.

    I'm still hoping that one of these days we'll get a really nice set of Metroid action figures.

    Also, the new Castlevania figures look pretty cool.

    NECA does amazing work.

    Also, this is noteworthy,

    NECA just signed a deal with Epic to make Gears of War figures due out in 2008.

    Yeah, I'm not really the type to buy toys, but having a mini-Raam would be pretty awesome.
