2011 PAPAs: Best Toy Line
While we already recognized some of our favorite new toy lines of 2011, there's still our overall toy lines to go over. So here are five toy lines that
5. Uglydolls (Pretty Ugly)
In addition to the popular Uglydoll plushies, Pretty Ugly released Series 3 of their Uglydoll Action Figure vinyls. Plus, there were the Lucky Uckys and a vinyl collaboration with Funko. And 2011 was one of Pretty Ugly's biggest in terms of apparel.
4. Glyos System Series (Onell Design)
The introduction of the Glyan character highlighted Onell's Glyos line in 2011. There were customizers and artists who added their own spin on the Glyos System...plus various collaborations with companies like Real x Head.
3. Iron Man (Hot Toys)
One of Hot Toys' most popular lines of 2011 was their Iron Man license. Makes sense with the release of Iron Man 2 was released the year before. In addition to the bust shown above, there were a number of new sixth-scale figures released from the film (Whiplash, War Machine, Iron Man, Black Widow).
2. WWRp (3A Toys)
Ashley Wood's World War Robot Portable line is a little smaller than the non-portable version. That means it's a little smaller hit to the wallet when purchasing one of them. Nonetheless, 3A Toys puts the same quality and care into these smaller pieces.
1. Sixth-Scale Star Wars (Sideshow Collectibles)
Sideshow really stepped up their game with the sixth-scale Star Wars license. Rather than the army of Clone Troopers that we've seen over the past few years, Sideshow released a treasure trove of new Star Wars characters with unique body/face sculpts.
