I remember reading an interview concerning Shane Acker a while back where he said that we were eventually getting 5, 6, 3&4, 2, 7 and 8 figurines (and maybe even some larger-scaled figurines of the machines,) sometime after the DVD's release in January... But from what I've seen so far... no figurines.
I'm guessing that the line was discontinued or something. Which is a shame, 'cause I know I'd buy a 5 or Cat Beast figurine without hesitation if they were ever released.

I must agree there, 12. I'd totally buy a 7 figure-- they even had an image for it-- but never came out with any. I really hope they're for sale somewhere, like at a private retailer or something, but I think you're right about the discontinuation. 8C
Yeah, yeah! They could have the extremely detailed figurines for the Beasts~! And by detailed, I mean like this!
They didn't forget a thing on this guy, and he looks so epic~!
As for 1-9, I think it would be cool if they were made out of PVC, like anime figures are ^o^ That way, we could have 9 looking normal in some cool action pose, instead of the famed pedo9 we all know. XD
You never know ... sometimes a dedicated fanbase can revive a show or movie. Look what happened to TNBC and Futurama.
Unfortunately 9 doesn't have much merchandise out to begin with, but if they sell well it send s a clear message to the merchandisers to make MOAR and pacify our fangirly/fanguy-y needs. I wouldn't rule out future figurines if the fandom gives 9 a lot of support.
If you click on "Costumer Service", you can write a message to NECA. I say we all send them messages saying that we're deticated 9 fans, bought their 1 and 9 figures, and that we'd love it if they'd come out with 2-8. If you don't think you can convince them to make ALL of them, then tell them to at least come out with 7 since they put up an image of her on the internet for God sakes! I just thought it might work since you were all saying that they'll only make more if the demand is high. And since there is so many of us here on the forum, imagine what they'll think if we all wrote to them!
Besides, 5 and 6 are so popular, sales would go through the roof if figures of them ever came out.
