I suppose you want every Marvel Legends series from now on to be made up of nothing but Wolverine, Captain America, and Hulk figures, as according to you, toy and specialty companies only makes products that sell phenomenally well. Take for example the AOA Sunfire figure, it's a figure that a small segment of the overall comics and action figure community wanted to see made, should the figure have been denied a plastic form simply because not every person on earth begged for it? Anyway, Gwen Stacy's death is one of the most defining moments in not only Spider man's existence, but also in the Marvel universe as a whole. She may not have taken the super soldier serum, been blasted with gamma radiation, or had her bones bonded with Adamantium, but she is an extremely important character nonetheless. Could you try not to dump on other people's parades? I'm a fan of Gwen Stacy and I don't appreciate my interests being criticized by someone who clearly sees them self as being superior to others.
WAS an extremely important character is more like it. Spidey is and always has been my all-time favorite comic character (even though OMD and BND is leaving quite a bitter taste in my mouth) and I can think of atleast a DOZEN characters from the Spidey mythos that are more deserving of a figure then his LONG dead girlfriend. Chameleon, Electro( a good one), Vermin, Spider Slayers, Black Cat, Puma, Beetle (a good one), Tombstone, The Prowler, Hammerhead, Carrion, and even JJJ are more deserving of a figure then Gwen. Sorry to rain on your parade guy, but she would be a pegwarmer just like the SM3 BAF MJ was.
Your example of AOA Sunfire proves MY point. He is being sold online... meaning Hasbro can produce however many of the figure are ordered... meaning minimal to no-loss for them.
And as far as me being someone who clearly sees them self as being superior to others", not so much guy... I just don't have a mad-on for a character that died before I was born sorry.
