    Are there any Borderlands figures coming out? Ones that I would actually want?

    Boderlands may be considered a "niche" franchise by some, but it's definitely popular, so popular that it has its own line of action figures. And now, McFarlane Toys has revealed on Twitter that they're adding Lillith and Krieg to their lineup.

    These are pretty cool, actually. I really like the Lilith one.

    I find Krieg more intimidating and dangerous :)

    That is kind of its own sign of popularity and fandom, to be able to come out with some action figures. I do not have any but I would gladly take one of these to add to my house somewhere.

    Well it's a good idea, and considering the fanbase it will be beneficial

    I wonder if it will still be a hit, considering that most kids now prefer tablets and cellphones.

    Toys still sell regardless. The only question is whether Borderlands is popular among kids, but even if it isn't, there are older people who are interested.

    It's still rather popular among adults but not as much among kids

    True, because I don't think Borderlands would be appealing to kids below 10 yrs. old.

    Yup. It's mostly adults who are more interested in collecting action figures of games or shows. It's not like the Borderlands management really expect many kids will buy it since most of their player or fanbase are in the adult's age range.

    Yes and it's difficult to introduce this game to younger fanbase

    But when the kids get older then it's likely that they will be interested in them.

    Yeah. We just have to wait for them to ripen up. :D

    Kids have a different taste and they will gradually change to a more mature one as they grow.

    Tbh many kids already play COD, CS and such. Borderlands is a "tamer" game than those, so I'm sure there are many Borderlands fans among younger gamers.

    Looks cool to me. Though I am over with my addiction of the action figure toys. So it does not seem much useful to me.

    At some point the collection becomes too big to buy any new ones ;)

    True, it just gathers dust and can be a hassle if you move houses a lot.

    I like Krieg's look a lot. He looks like Bane from one of the Batman movies(I can't remember which one). I am glad somebody brought this to my attention because all the major Borderlands news is about Borderlands 3.
