You ‘ve waited YEARS for "The A-Team" to return to pop culture and now it opens today in a theater near you! But that’s not all, the team at Jazwares have made a line of action figures for the property and made some pretty smart decision in the line.
It was really smart to make them in the same scale and style as the GI Joe line. Fans love it when lines fit together in style and scale, and many fans have always wanted a Mr. T figure that would go with the forces of Joe. The movie B.A. is close enough to fit that bill. Jazwares is a clever bunch. These figures are close enough to represent both their classic TV and modern movie counterparts.
It was really smart to release the van. The van is so iconic that you have to make it for this line. Also the van is so well done that it actually serves as a jumping on point for fans. You see that thing on a store shelf and it’s so well done and a great price point you just have to pick it up…. and then you need a team to go with it… and that’s how it starts. Some one has to drive the thing…. In a time where most companies refuse to make vehicles or play sets it’s nice to see a company like Jazwares take a chance on a great vehicle. I hope it pays off for them.
They were smart to make them the right price point. In a time where a lot of 3.75" lines are roughly $10. It’s nice to see, fun, well done figures for almost half that price on store pegs.
