Ultimate Soldier 1/6 Little Bird Attack Helicopter

As I was searching through old photos, I came across this photo I took in my backyard when I lived in the great southwest. It is the Ultimate Soldier 1/6 scale Little Bird attack helicopter and the GI Joe Classic Collection female helicopter pilot, one of my favorite figures of all time.



Some packaged and stock photos from the good old internet.

UTB 1 - Kenner Indiana Jones

So this is the first installment of a regular post I want to present. I will pick a toy line, reminisce about it's pieces, and then cry about what wasn't made. Then I need your help. Did I get it right? What would you add? Remove?

I know that companies need to make a profit to continue a line or to even stay in business. Money needs to be spent on design, prototyping, marketing, sales, engineering, accountants, etc. As rabid as we toy collectors are, companies can't make everything we want. Actual sales may not warrant it. We run into this all the time - just check out any action figure forum. Business is business.

But let's thank those brave companies who at least tried to give us some love to our pop culture cravings in the form of toys.

With that, I'll start with Indiana Jones.

In it's initial lineup we had Indiana Jones, Sallah, Marion, Toth, Belloq, Cairo Swordsman, Indy in German uniform, and German Mechanic, We also saw Ceremonial Robes Bellow which was a mail in exclusive, the Monkey Man which came with the Streets of Cairo playset, and Indy in Arab attire with the Maproom playset. Playsets included Well of Souls, Truck and Horse set.








So if the line continued, what else would we have wanted from the Raiders of the Lost Ark from Kenner?

Here is my list.

Idol Playset
Satipo
Hovitos
Belloq in Adventurer Gear
Nepalese Thugs
Marion's Bar Playset - how fun would that be?
Flying Wing
Captain Katanga
Ark Opening Stage Playset

What would you add?

Walking Dead Board Game - Kickstarter

Another great Kickstarter to get you Walking Dead fans fired up. While I wish the figures were to standard 54mm scale, these are pretty darn good.
