Personally, I would much prefer a Chlara figurine, she was always my favorite character in the game.
And if I saw correctly, the XBox game commercial showed a virtual figurine of both Chtlana and Chlara as a part of the same "statue" (I doubt it would get made in reality, though).
I only saw a video of that part where you get to view the characters on youtube - as far as I know, this is sadly not part of the PC version, which I have - or if it is, I have yet to find it. I used cheat codes (invisibility and invincibility) and Garry's mod to gather good screenshot references of the girls.
And I agree - I like them both, but I like Chlara better. It's probably the goggles. They actually do something here!
Another thing, that would be interesting to see (although I kind of doubt that it would ever get made), would be a motorized Oxameter figurine. With it's low center of gravity and the wide "snowshoes" it could be easily stable enough to walk on it's own. And the battery compartment and the on/off switch could be hidden under the robe, or possibly under the helmet. And when turned on, it would do exactly what Oxameter does (or is it what the Energizer bunny does), which is walk in a straight line until the batteries run out.
That's an awesome idea, and could probably be done pretty well! Maybe simplifying of the design is needed, or doing it on a smaller scale.
I often wonder, actually, why aren't there more toys of video game characters. With today's 3D technology in games, meshes are now incredibly detailed (gone are the days of blocky polygons) enough so that they can be used as templates for toys. In fact, I know for a fact that this is how Wizards has been making its D&D miniatures for a while now - they create a 3D model, and then try various poses for the final miniature - often releasing the same "mesh" as different characters in different poses, like various orcs, or just check the last two Umber Hulk miniatures - they latter is scaled up to Huge size, but they are both the same model.
