    Jesus throwing the horns would be totally boss, but I had to put my vote behind the Cardboard Tube Samurai. Don't make me explain it, it's beyond anything you could possibly comprehend.

    edit: or a CTS add-on for the Gabe figure (a robe, hat and tube?)

    Why is this even a contest, surely you must make gabe and tycho's CAT a figure.

    Gabe already said in the newspost that they wouldn't be making Thomas Kemper (Gabe & Tycho's cat) into a figure.

    Jesus does nothing for me. But it looks like Annarchy and CTS are well in the running, so here's hoping.

    I'm guessing these would be in the vein of the Dark Horse pvc sets? ie: figurines like the hellboy sets, not action figures?

    And while I am not Christian, I have to say I would find the inclusion of Christ as a figure a bit tasteless(which is odd for me to even say that, as I am all for edgy humor)

    I'm all for Charles, but that may be because he has goggles...or perhaps Annarchy, just to add a female to the lsit. There definately needs to be a female on there.

    Incidentally, I remember Gabe posting on Palisades Forums back in early 2003 asking what people would think of Penny Arcade figures, and I believe they were having informal talks with either Palisades or other fan friendly figure companies at the time.

    So my guess is we'll see these toward Christmas time(the turn around time on this sort of stuff is insane), they'll be about 3 to 4", and will be a box set of non articulated figurines. I'm also assuming that by San Diego comic con there will be *some* kind of PA plush, most likely fruitfucker, twisp and catsby, or most likely merch.

    Technically, I got him at a local comic shop. He proudly presides over my monitor, next to LEGO Millenium Falcon, Taco Bell Yoshi, and Bendy Gumbi.

    Personally i think the best action figures would be the mighty fruit fucker with attachable orange and JC throing the horns. But that is just my opinion.

    "Definitely".

    For the love of sweet f'ing metal Jesus it's spelled "definitely".


    On another topic... I am genuinely curious as to what you think Annarchy's appeal is. In all the strips, I never interpreted her as an even somewhat engaging character - so she's a girl gamer who uses big words. She kinda reminds me of Calvin, except, you know, no penis.

    She strikes me as a snarkier, female Tycho. And more of Tycho is always a good thing.

    I voted for Heyzeus Cristo because the possibilities are endlessly amusing. Not only to have a small, hilarious Jesus figure in my collection that would inspire perhaps offense, perhaps delight, but also the fact that he's gone through so many visual iterations.

    After that, however, would be Dr. Darktalon Raven Blood. I'd -REALLY- like a figure of him, but I know I'd buy a Jesus.

    Just because they have other plans for these characters doesnt mean that my opinion that he should be an action figure has changed at all. Jackass.

    WEll, if my memory serves ( and it never really does ) he was named in one comic and appeared in another, but there have been no further developments of the character.

    Don't you mean a thesaurus?

    Also, most of these choices suck...when I think Penny-Arcade, I don't think of minor characters like Hector and Frank.

    Make an old-school pack with Gabe, Tycho, Div, Fruit Fucker, and Thomas Kemper.

    I voted for Charles, I'd like to see some sort of action where you can change him from dork to Mac fanboy.

    I think it's a little unfair to have Jesus up there, even though he is pretty cool throwing up the horns. I mean he's Jesus. He doesn't need to be up there. He's too good. Frank, Div, and Thomas should be the ones. They were some of the first extra characters made, and some of the best.

    I'm more of a "themed set" guy. And you will definitely move more merchandise that way, IMO.

    As such, CTS should be reserved for a CTS-themed set. Hector would well be reserved for a "sports" set that would include Gabe in his golfing get-up and some Nerf gun goodness.

    So who should be in the "primary" set? The leads, Kara and Brenna, Annarchy, and Jesus seem to be the best candidates, since Div is off the table.

    Sure, some characters like Batjew would be neat, but really, when's the last time we saw Batjew? And is Charles really a core part of the strip as it exists now? Much less so than Kara, Brenna, and Annarchy, for sure. Heck, I think I see less of him than Our Savior, certainly.

    I would love to see an action figure of the Canid, the malevolent race of dog men that conquered earth.

    Other fun ones would be Wayland Darkspur, Kara, and Brenna. I gotta say that the Canid are at the top of my list. But Mahakala would be great, too. (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/04/08)

    If the guys decide to go into stuffed animals, the Dire Bear with the Plague would be very amusing.

    BTW, they're idiots. Gabe and Tycho should be in separate sets:

    Set 1: Gabe, Brenna*, Hector, Jesus mit der Hornen, Frank**
    Set 2: Tycho, Kara*, Charles, Annarchy, CTS**

    *Switch these if I've mixed up who is with whom
    **These can be switched too, although Frank is more natural with Gabe than with Tycho, but CTS doesn't really belong with Tycho either, but I didn't think anyone would want two Gabe figures in the set.

    Regardless of merchandising plans for Div, how could a Gabe + Tycho figure set be complete without him? There should be some way to fit a tiny Div figure in with other merchandising plans. The same for the cat Thomas Kemper, he's just part of Gabe + Tycho.

    But if going with an incomplete set, using Kara and Brenna to round out a set with Charles is a good idea. I also like the idea of including the friendly zombie in a future set.
