Flicks doesn't matter. What counts is all the duplicates: Han Solo, JetSki Han Solo, Winter Wonderland Han Solo, etc.

One of the Star Wars characters wins.

Don't forget Mattel's "Harry Stamper" Armageddon action figure of Bruce Willis. Sylvester Stallone has Rocky, Rambo, John Spartan from Demolition Man, and a Medicom Judge Dredd.

Probably bending the rules a little but:

Hugo Weaving:
LOTR Trilogy, Matrix, Transformers (voice of Megatron)

Mel Gibson:
Road Warrior, Chicken Run, Pocahontas

Which makes me wonder, why have we never gotten a kick ass William Wallace figure?

Christopher Lee: Scaramanga ("The Man with the Golden Gun"), Sauruman ("The Lord of the Rings"), Count Dooku ("Star Wars"), and it seems like there's at least one from his Hammer era.

It's gotta be Harrison Ford. Between all the different Star Wars and Indiana Jones figures that are out there, I doubt anyone has more.

How about Will Smith. Surely there were some ID4 figures. I'm sure there were Wild Wild West ones. MIB?

Yep, I was actually thinking William Shatner - how many James Kirk toys have been made over the years?

With the women, it's a bit less. I can't think of any actresses with more than 3.

Halle Berry: 3
Catwoman, X-Men, Die Another Day

Kate Beckinsale: 2
Underworld, Van Helsing

Angelina Jolie: 1
Tomb Raider



Here are some more surprising ones, whom all have more than Tom Cruise (Cruise only has one action figure from Mission Impossible):

John Goodman: 3
The Flinstones, Speed Racer, The Big Lebowski

Tim Roth: 3
The Incredible Hulk, Resevoir Dogs, Planet of the Apes

Willem Dafoe: 2
Spiderman, Platoon

Hugh Jackman: 2
Van Helsing, X-Men

Sean Connery
James Bond, Professor Jones, Highlander, Robin Hood:Prince of Thieves, Dragonheart, The Rock. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?

When I was a kid in the 60s stores had an entire aisle devoted to James Bond toys and action figures, 1965-67.

IIRC, there were 4 versions of ToyBiz Batman. Of course, only 1 of which actually looked like Michael Keaton.

Karl Urban: 3

Ray Park: 4
Star Wars, Sleepy Hollow, G.I. Joe, X-Men

Warwick Davis: 6
Star Wars, Willow, Hitchhiker's Guide, Narnia, Leprechaun, Harry Potter



I'm surprised I haven't seen a Clint Eastwood action figure based on Sergio Leone flicks, Dirty Harry, and Unforgiven

few I can't believe haven't been mentioned yet.

Kurt Russell The man is 4 movies strong.

Escape From New York, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Stargate.

And I'm sure will be 5, cause Neca will likely someday put out a Stuntman Mike figure.

Bruce Campbell: Army of Darkness, Evil Dead, Bubba Ho Tep

Liam Neeson: Phantom Menace, Darkman, Batman Begins, & Narnia (although IMO voicework shouldn't count for anyone).

Uma Thurman: Batman & Robin, Kill Bill

Jim Carrey: The Mask, Batman Forever, The Grinch

Jason Lee: Mallrats, Chasing Amy

Ben Affleck: Chasing Amy, Dogma

As a guy who used to collect figures, I can tell you that there aren't any Pulp Fiction figures. Those Lego looking things shouldn't count.

Also, next year you'll be able to add Christian Bale -- Batman, Patrick Bateman, John Connor

They made action figures for the movie The Rock?

Speaking of, there have to be dozens of wrestling-based action figures of Dwayne Johnson... were there ever an Scorpion King figures made?

Evidently. I looked at ebay to see what was there before posting. Only thing I couldn't find anything on was League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, hence ?

All the Bond women going back to Dr. No have figures. Maybe Lois Maxwell/Moneypenny is the champ with 14 movies?

Bruce Campbell

With all the different versions of Evil Dead/Army Of Darkness figures over over the years from different companies (Sideshow, Mcfarlane, Mezco, Neca), and now one coming out from My Name Is Bruce he has to be in the running.

Which is funny since at one point there was no Evil Dead merchandise at all.
