Looks like they put Short Round's head on Indy's body.

It's amazing how much of a market has sprung up around intentionally shiatty action figures. And it's not like Hasbro has any problem doing it accidentally either.

I just want some decent Micronauts re-issues.

It still hits that desirable price point of being cheaper than buying the originals off eBay.

The new GIJoes are offensive, like worse than 1980s Kmart ripoff versions

I hate every last one of you no-talent, tasteless asswipes making this 'Retro' shiat happen.  Hasbro has sucked so much ass since they fired everyone that actually *makes* action figures.  Every actual employee they have now is just some useless Business Major.

I mean, LOOK at this pathetic thing. This wasn't as good as the toys we had in the early 80s. Hell, this isn't as good as knock off Star Wars Toys from the 70s. Look at the lack of articulation, the paucity of detail. If you got this from a yard sale you'd think you got cheated.
 
2022-10-02 2:28:00 PM  
Ugh, action figures went to crap with the miniature Kenner Star Wars crap, which were more like Lego figures than anything else. The original GI Joes and superhero action figures were way better--to say nothing of the 6 Million Dollar Man figures with their awesome features.

And bring back the JJ Armes action figures! He had the most awesome accessories!

Are you sure? That looks more like a cool display piece than a fun toy.

"Woo! I'm pretending Indy is finding where the lost Ark is buried! And now he's finding it again! He is so finding that Ark! Oh yeah, Ark, Indy has totally found your hiding spot! Ha ha, he's still finding it! Look at all the finding going on here! So... much.... finding. Yay. Whoopie. Ah screw it, I'm gonna play with the box this  thing came in."

Go away, Boomer.  Somebody probably has a hoop-and-stick to keep you entertained when you finish playing with your dolls.

At least in the Indy one you could have map room shenanigans, fights, etc.
Alas, I didn't have anything else in that line.

Would have been cool.

Of course, back then, since we didn't have access to streaming versions of every movie we actually had to act them out ourselves with our toys

That's just a crappy Asian knockoff, right?

That's state of the Retro art from the dominant schmucks pushing it: Super7.

They somehow got ahold of the molds for the never-produced 5poa 18th-scale Alien line and thought excitement over those was somehow rooted in their 5poa format, and ran with it.  If there's a license you can imagine, they've made shiatty 5poa figures (that widely skirt around expensive actor-license fees) of it.

The only figure from them that I've seen that I would buy for $5 is this one.

No they haven't.  Those are god-awfully proportioned cheap hack-work.  The foot is bigger than the entire pelvis!

Yeah, saw that at Target the other day and I was shocked by how shiatty it was compared to even the original non-swivel arm battle grip figures I had back in 1982 where half the Joes were repaints with mix and matched parts.

Snake Eyes was specifically designed back then so they would have a figure that they wouldn't have to spend money painting and could just leave black, and the ReAction folks somehow managed to make their figure even cheaper.

I mean it does kind of convey the crappiness of the TV show characters and writing compared to the excellent Marvel series written by Larry Hama, so there's that.
