Readers' Choice of new Figures and Vehicles in 1:72 scale

The purpose of this page is to encourage manufacturers to produce model kits that are most wanted by collectors, wargamers and hobbyists. Readers may submit proposals for new and interesting plastic figure sets, vehicles or buildings which they think should be available at their local hobby shop soon. The Wishlist is voted on, and submitted to 1:72 scale manufacturers annually.

Items 1 through 310 are ranked by popularity, based on 5067 votes submitted by 20.MAR.2000. Numbers in brackets indicate a previous wishlist ranking. Some entries may be vacant, because manufacturers released the suggested item or are in the process of doing so.
