Goblin Mini-Poll

The folks at Garden Ninja asked for suggestions from me and my fans as to which goblin characters should be immortalized as miniatures.

For those of you who don't have an LJ account, please feel free to leave suggestions in the comments. And it goes without saying that Jig Dragonslayer will be one of the minis.

All total, they plan to do 4 or 5 for the first set, though the contract gives them the rights to make up to 6 if they're feeling "particularly inspired" :-)

So what do you think? Who would make the best miniatures? (And of course, which characters would people be willing to shell out a few bucks for?) Feel free to vote for up to 4.

Which characters from the goblin books should be made into miniatures?

Did you choose this list or did they? It seems to pull a lot toward goblins and humans. Where is Slash? The fairies? The ogres?

And I must say that I consider Golaka + her spoon as a given. :)

I came up with the list. Several people, my wife included, have complained about the lack of Slash. My bad...

The pixies and the ogres weren't as central to the stories, though. I personally wouldn't want to focus on them as much, at least with the first wave of miniatures.

Slash! Slash! Slash! Slash!

And while we're at it, where's our Slash icon? Sure, he's not on a cover, but hey! I see lots of possibilities.

First action figures, then other tangibles.

There's got to be a lunchbox in this merchandising somewhere....

You know, in all of the various editions of the book, I don't think anyone has ever done an illustration of Slash.

And the first time through, my fingers typed that as Slashy.

I think I should go back to Goblin Hero and revise it so that Veka calls him Slashy at some point, just to annoy him :-)

I think so too.
