Yes...it's been a long time coming, but we are prepared to offer up Plastic and Plush's Top 10 list of the best toys of 2006. This doesn't include plush toys, as we've already given you that list. So, without further adieu...
10. Brian Taylor's Rustboy from Android 8
If we had a category for the most underrated toy of the year, Rustboy would definitely win. It's a very cool toy that didn't garner enough press and interest. Here's still hoping for a full-length Rustboy film.
9. Captain Maxx from Max Toy Co.
Kaiju beware! Max Toy's namesake figure, the Captain was released in several colorways that appealed to the collector who likes his or her figures with a header card.
8. Broken Heart Robot from Genshi:Toy
Craig Perkins' forlorn robot tugged on folks' heartstrings with a sad story and a simple design. With normal, glow-in-the-dark, solid white and soft clear figures...they had all collectors in mind.
7. Buzz Carney from Carnival Cartoons
Jared and Garnet's first figure from The Carney's line was the heavily tattooed strongman. The character conjures up great Spumco memories.
6. Darth Maul from Sideshow Toy
This was by far and away our favorite character from Sideshow's Star Wars line. Even though Darth Maul was an underused and unappreciated villain, he's one of our favorites.
5. Fafi's Irina from Necessaries Toy Foundation
NTF's Irina is by far and away the best looking figure based on French designer Fafi's work. The fact that it stands around 11" in height makes it that much better.
