Custom Activision/Atari 2600 Action Figures: If Only River Raid Had a Person in It

by


Looking back at the Atari 2600, it really wasn’t very good until Activision came along and raised the bar for graphics and sound for the early 8-bit console. To commemorate these classic games, Chicago Toy Collector Dan Polydoris¬†created this nifty set of custom action figures.

The set of five action figures got their start as various G.I. Joe characters, but they’re now sporting that perfect Activision 8-bit look. While Pitfall Harry¬†is surely the most recognizable of the bunch, the other games were all pretty solid too – especially H.E.R.O. - though I never knew its protagonist’s name was Roderick.

Awesome job, Dan. These are all quite special. I only wish you would make a little burglar dude for Kaboom!
