FIFTH ANNUAL ACTION FIGURE AWARDS RESULTS
Collectors Choose the Best of 2007 in Annual Online Poll
Friday, January 04, 2008

For the fifth straight year, the McFarlane Toys collectors voiced their opinions on the year's best figures, coming to a consensus to hand out the McFarlane Toys Action Figure Awards. More than 2,500 votes were cast, and winners were named in 21 categories. There's no better judge of our figures than the collectors themselves, so let's take a look and see what you crowned the best figures of 2007.

On the action figure side of things, 'tis the season for the scantily clad vixens! Mrs. Clause from McFarlane's Twisted X-mas and 12" Dorothy have tied for the most awards with two each. But, not to be outdone, Twisted X-mas also scored an award for Best Online feature, and the award for Best Paint resulted in a tie between Reindeer Rudy and Lord Covenant from SPAWN 31: Other Worlds. That brings McFarlane's Twisted X-mas a grand total to four awards, making it the big winner in 2007!
