A-Team Review

 
 
A-Team
A-Team (Galoob) - 3 3/4" Scale - 4-Packs
I bought this set after Christmas of 1985 with the money I had collected as gifts from relatives. Back then the A-Team was one of the most popular foreign shows in television where I live (Philippines). These were the first figures I bought that had multiple articulation - swivel arms, elbow and knee joints, etc. - before coming across my very first GI Joe figures several months afterwards. The articulation of these figures was the main factor in my purchase, with the novelty of the television show coming in at close second.

The overall quality of these toys is the reason for the rather mediocre rating. Their thumbs snapped off rather easily after a few weeks of normal play (I remember one snapping off after accidentally dropping off from the cabinet to the tiled floor), and joints loosened up rather quickly as well. The O-rings also had some durability issues. As for their weapons, their grips weren't really snug with the figures' hands, and the backpacks had plastic "straps" rather than pegs. Paint apps were also of satisfactory quality.

But they came in rather cheap and still provided hours of fun play.

I had these figures also. Their parts were interchangable with the my old GI Joes.
