Movies are like butts, everybody loves them. They are so inspirational (movies, not butts). But what happens when someone is so inspired by a movie that they create a toy line based on that film? We get some really cool and fun action figures, that’s what. This was a difficult list to concoct because there were so many great officially licensed products in the 90s. But these were my favorite:
First of all, Demolition Man is a great movie. It is a tale as old as time. Good vs. Evil and all that jazz. And what’s better is that it is Sylvester Stallone vs. Wesley Snipes. These toys were great because they were sturdy and one version of Simon Phoenix came with a flame thrower!
Such a fun bunch of action figures. I loved this set because there were so many options. No matter which Lost Boy you identified with, there was a toy for you. Bangarang!
Just what everyone wants…an Alec Baldwin action figure. He is appropriate for girls and ladies. I think everyone loves him. At least, most everyone. Plus, for some reason there was an Otho action figure.
2) Police Academy
For some reason, I not only love this movie, but I love these action figures. There were just so many of them. And my neighbor had them all. I was so jealous. I used to borrow them. How crazy is that? I used to borrow Steve Guttenberg from my neighbor.
This one is near and dear to my heart. These action figures included Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neil, and a buff Wayne Knight. Seriously, for some reason he was muscular…and cool looking. It would be like if Rambo were your IT guy.
