NFL Action Team Mates

Hi kids, your old pal IseeRobots here again. Do you guys remember these? I’ve never really been into football but for some reason I always wanted one of these figures. I think it might have been because you could only pick them up via catalog and my family wasn’t big catalog consumers. It’s like, I never actually saw them in person so I wanted them. I bet if I got one I wouldn’t really have played with it for very long. Because you know I didn’t really like football very much.

I don’t remember the van though. That’s a neat and totally weird accessory. It’s cool, don’t get me wrong but it’s weird. Do you think that there has ever been a situation where a full uniformed player drove around in a custom team van? I can imagine a knocked out ballplayer getting hauled off the field in van like that but it’d probably have a siren on top. Tonka’s Van has no such siren therefore it is weird..


Got a minute you want to waste? Then head on over to Facebook and give good old IseeRobots a big thumbs up. You won’t be sorry for long.

  1. Not only do I remember them, I had the San Diego Chargers one – who I made into Dan Fouts. I’ve been watching the prices on these on eBay for quite some time, they’re expensive now, MOC command $100+ and even figures that need reassembling and new rubber bands can be pricey.
