Top 5: Favorite Action Figures


Each Tuesday I do a quick “Top 5” list, and instead of doing some kind of big write up, I do it in pictures instead.  I’d love to see others join in the fun as well and chime in on the same topic on your own site, social channel, Instagram, podcast, or wherever you share your opinions online.  I’ll be posting under the tag #Top 5, so if you do the same we can all see everyone else’s list.

This week, it’s my Top 5 Favorite Action Figures.  Let’s go to the list…..


Snow Job

Snow Job from the G.I. Joe A Real American Hero Line

With the skis, Snow Job was one of the most played with action figures I owned.  I killed many a snow day out of school going on special missions with Snow Job.



Jitsu from Masters of the Universe

While others may have other MOTU figures they were more fond of, but there was just something about Jitsu that struck my fancy.  That deadly golden karate chopping right hand of his made for a fearsome foe for He-Man in my world.

B.A. Baracus from The A-Team

This Mr. T figure got his fair share of play time since I was a huge fan of the A-Team show.  After each episode, I would re-create it with these figures, and B.A. Baracus was always the star.


Bruce Wayne from The Dark Knight Collection

There have been a lot of cool Batman figures produced through the years, but this Bruce Wayne is my favorite because he could transform into Batman!  It was like getting two figures in one!


Ric Flair from Remco

I’ve always been a big pro wrestling fan, and was a fan of Flair even back in 1985 when he was at his worst.  This Ric Flair figure was so cool because there was not another one on the market.  This Ric Flair was not only champion of the AWA, but he also beat B.A. Baracus, He-Man, and every other toy who dared step into the ring with him.


What about you, what were some of your favorite action figures back in the day?
