All right, I may have lured you in under some false pretenses. There will never, ever be Veronica Mars action figures. There are a few busts of Veronica and Logan Echolls, but manufacturing action figures is far too expensive a process for the few thousand they would likely sell. Heroes, on the other hand, is still on the air -- and still pretty popular, despite last season's meanderings -- which means the action figures are coming fast and furious. Hmm... What Veronica Mars cast member is on Heroes now? Let me think...
The first wave of Heroes figures from Mezco Toyz is in stores now, and focuses on Season 1 with Peter, Hiro, Sylar, Claire and Mohinder. Ditto September's Wave 2, with Nikki/Jessica, Claude, Matt Parkman, Noah Bennett and Mr. Linderman. But Wave 3... that's where Season 2 (and my misleading title) comes into play. Along with a few remaining Season 1 starrers (Nathan and the Haitian), Wave 3 gives us second-season costumes for Peter and Hiro and the line's first Season 2 character, Elle -- played by Veronica herself, Kristen Bell!
Now, while it will likely say "Elle" on the package, there's no law that says you have to keep her in there -- although some die-hards would argue otherwise. I say take her out, put her on your bedside table and call her whatever name you like, whether that's Veronica, Sarah Marshall or Princess Leia -- oh, if only the clothes on this 7-inch figure were interchangeable with a gold bikini.
