A-Team Movie Figures

Post by awe on Thu Feb 18, 2010 4:02 am

I can't believe that I didn't anticipate these when I saw the movie trailer.

I'll be on the look out for pics to post asap.

Those 3 3/4" figures from the eighties were major favourites of mine back in the day. Even if they bizarrely wore one-color jump suits that looked nothing like what they wore on the TV show and that I had the van that was meant for the figures the next scale up!
---
Embittered Side Note: I guess I also get excited about anything that is likely to show up here at retail. Is it meant to be this hard to collect figures in this country? I just had my Thor/Enchantress Secret Wars pack order fade into the ether at Casefresh. Loved the look of Battlecat but knew that one would go like lightning. And I don't think I've ever seen DC Universe Classics on a peg. *sigh* Maybe the upcoming Iron Man 2 (3 3/4) Comic Series will have better articulation than the Wolverine and Spider-Man ranges? There's a void Jerry.

It would appear to be. I remember in the 1980s when every Kenner instruction book came with a satisfaction guarantee which began with "We really do care."

From how they tend to act, if most toy companies put a similar disclaimer based on their actions in their instruction books, the start of it would probably read "We really don't give a rat's as.". Sad but true...

I don't go much on Jazzwares, but I may buy a set of the A-Team figures if I like the movie.

I had the four A-Team figures, the four generic village people looking villains, the Van and Face's Corvette back in the day. I also had one or two of the larger scale figures...ah, the 80's.

Will definitely buy the van if I spot one. Not too excited about the figures.

I had a long conversation with one of the Jazwares main reps a couple of weeks ago and they are fairly excited about this line. (Because it will probably be there first line that will be pushed out to all retailers giving them more exposure.)

IMO Jazwares has been improving, and you have to remember anything that they put out the majors have no interest in (Hasbro, Mattel and Jakks) (If only they would stop trying to sell me those Megaman Rotocasts which never sell)

Spotted! Just the figures at K-Mart Stanhope Gardens. $15 and change. They look exactly like the promo shot, which is good and bad. (You would think if you had a character called FACE, that you would pay extra attention to the face).

No vans, but no marked space for them on the shelf either. Asked the staff but they were getting smashed by the Toy Sale crowd.

I might do the same. These look poor for $16. Though I have only seen Michael Crawfords reviews of a few items:

12" Hannibal

3/34 is really only a great scale for figures with vehicles in my book. One of the great things about Star Wars is having these awesome vehicles that go with the figures.

Thanks MAN! I took your tip on the vans and headed to the local TRU. Sure enough, they had a stack for $39.99 each. That's a little more than I wanted to pay, so I'm gonna wait and see (which could be a mistake, but hey).

Picked up the van for $40, and BA for $15, but with the bike and kiddy trailer and some trains for my boys, with the deal last week where you spend over $100 and got 20% off, worked out to be a nice little freeby!
