You know for kids...

Action figure mis-steps?





This one is J.S. Bach...couldn't find a picture of him in his packaging.

Ejector Head Action!
Love it.

but there is also the line of almighty heroes

John said...

Actually, was going to say the same thing... about the ejector head action (I mean... WHAT??)

Who would win in a fight? The Jane Austen action figure or the Marie Antoinette?

I'll go with Austen and the quill pen. Those things are sharp!

MC said...

See, the thing with the Joey Stivic doll is it has a realistic baby wang... and that isn't good for anyone... except certain older men, and THAT really isn't good for anyone!

That is awesome! I need a set.

John said...

I reckon Marie Antoinette might win - that ejector head action would give her serious head-butting power (or could she really only do that once?)

I got my future brother in law a set of Revolutionary Finger Puppets for Christmas; not quite action figures, but nice to see him making little plays with Trotsky and Gandhi.

Ooh, I just found a pic of them:

Is the little "stage" functional?

Jane is in green, and was played by Anne Hathaway...I'm just saying is all.

Pidomon-
Oh god I want a Jesus action figure so bad! But it has to be a really cheesy bad Jesus with like water to wine action.

John-
Yes! Someone had a ball coming up with that action figure!

Bradda-
As John commented later I think I'd have to go with our lady Marie a flying head pointed in the right direction could give you like a concusion or knock the wind out of you :)

MC-
Oh god that freakin doll is so creepy! I think you are right...only a certain kind of adult would ever want to have the doll around...

Wildth1ng-
I'm sure these toys would bring seconds upon seconds of playtime fun!

John-
Right-on man!

Imaginary-
Holy crap those are cool! Someone could do the coolest, strangest, wife beatingest puppet show ever!

Tuffy-
I REALLY hope so!

Ben-
Anne Hathaway is the queen but still that head poppin action is fierce man!

Randal Graves said...

Bloody hell these are great! Why have a bust of Beethoven on your toy piano when you can have Ludwig with the kung-fu grip!

Dane of War said...

My neighbor got the last one for Christmas from her parents - I remember playing "house" with her and we used Joey as our baby! :)

Becca said...

Randal-
Kung-fu grip! Classic! I wonder if there's a Mozart figure out there, they could so have intense battles!

Dane-
Oh my god that's so funny! I love toys and love to just sit and look through toy catalogues modern and vintage but I swear I had never heard this existed. So bizarre!
