Playmates To Do Family Guy Figures & Playsets

From toynewsi, Playmates who achieved great success with their Simpsons toyline in the 90's appears to be trying to recapture some of that magic with a new line of toys based on another Fox animated series, Family Guy. Like with their old Simpsons line it appears they will be releasing figures and interactive playsets based on episodes from the series.

The first series of figures will include:

- Stewie
- Peter
- Brian
- Cleveland
- Quagmire
- Halloween Stewie

Wow, really? I guess that's great, but it seems to me like FG has been sufficiently action figured already. I predict this series won't last for too many rounds.

I don't own a single Family Guy fig, although I love the show. And I must admit I've been feeling sort of ambivilant about the large Simpsons collection I've amassed. Some of them are great, but I've come to realize that I don't need object versions of 2D characters that I like.

The two FG figs I've considered are the mutant Stewie and the Bertram fig, the latter for the cool helmet (with it's very specific head shape) and the sperm ship accessory. Because who doesn't want a sperm with a little windshield?

Well... me, I guess. Because I didn't get one.
