Classic Atari Custom Action Figures By The Chicago Toy Collector!

You might remember a few months back when we shared Dan Polydoris/Chicago Toy Collector’s incredible custom figures for his Activision Action Figures Line or even the totally awesome Sewer Slashin’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. The Chicago Toy Collector has returned and brought with him the Classic Atari Action Figures toy line…and it’s a terribly sad world we live in that these were not actually produced back in the heyday of the Atari 2600.

The good news is that the Chicago Toy Collector was kind enough to make extras this go around and if you hop over to his website you can see about not only picking up one for yourself but what Kenner figures were used in their construction if you feel like making some for your friends and family.

    Very cool. I’ve always liked the Missile Command guy. Never though to turn him into an action figure.

  2. Wizard of Odyssey says:

    This pleases me greatly, two of my favorite things, together at last. I can name the components of the Star Wars figures that went into these.

  3. SecondHandNostalgist says:

    Nice work here, especially on the Berzerk figure! Anyone else agree that the Space Invaders figure looks like a diminutive version of Greedo?

  4. Atari Adventure Square says:

    A square! A square!
    Make me an Adventure action figure! Need all accessories too!
    Well, at least a sword for defense. And one of the keys. The Gold one, so I can get home.

    I know, it would most likely be the little dude with the walking stick on the box cover (would still be great). Or even his unsuspecting companion in the back (the unfortunately named Dragonmeal).

    But yeah, a square.

    The dragons would also be nice to have around the house.

  5. Considering Dan’s talent, Atari, I don’t think it’s too much to hope that we will see the Adventure playset at some point. :D

    Second Hand Nostalgist, I think that is Greedo’s little brother Greedly. :P
