Pokemon and Nintendo: Make a Misty Action Figure

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon.  While Nintendo, The Pokemon Company and other associated groups have begun to celebrate fan nostalgia with a wave of products, one thing we could use more of is action figures, and we ask that you start with a character who has been underrepresented for years in that regard, Misty.

Many of us who have been with you for these two decades haven't limited our following of the series to the video games; we have also watched the TV series, and Misty is a character very dear to us.  She was a girl character many boys couldn't help but like; even at an age when boys still tended not to associate with girls, and for many young girls viewing the show, she became a role model, as a tough and assertive heroine they got to see embark on a Pokemon adventure years before the Pokemon video games had playable female protagonist.  Sadly, because Misty left the Pokemon anime after the Johto arc, while Ash and Brock stayed in focus, they have received several well-articulated, scale representations of the their characters in toy format, while Misty only got one slightly articulated figure released by Hasbro, and it was not widely available.  Since then, other female anime protagonists, Dawn and Serena, have gotten fine action figures, but Misty still hasn't; despite still being many fans' favorite.

However, this year, marking two decades of Pokemon, is a great time to change that!  We, the fans, request an action figure of Misty, the Kanto water-type gym leader and original Pokemon anime heroine.  We would like it proportioned accurately to the way she appeared on the show, preferably to-scale with the other Pokemon action figures on sale, possessing plenty of points of articulation for maximum play and posability, and at least one of her signature Pokemon included.  We want to celebrate 20 years of Pokemon with a character who was a big part of the series for many of us, and pledge to buy the figure if it is made and sold!  Please don't let us down!
