Custom made Atari action figures

From chicagotoycollector, A lot of classic Atari titles received very little merch (or none at all), which is why some of these games have endured as classics, in my opinion. If Atari had been shoving merchandise down our throats for every franchise, maybe we all would've grown sick of these games.

Either way, if Atari had decided in the 80's to cash in on their popular games, this is exactly what their toys would’ve looked like (in my opinion). While the last batch of Atari figures I made were constructed from vintage GI Joes, these were made from vintage Kenner Star Wars toys, giving them a classic 80’s look.

And rather than make them only for myself, I made a few extra Missile Command figures and a few extra Berzerk figures to sell. They're all on eBay now for $50 each.

Nice! I'm bowled over about how perfectly that Cloud Car driver works as the Missile Command guy (although I shouldn't, because I'm sure the Missile Command art was influenced by the Death Star personnel's helmets, and we're round the circle again).

Can't say I'm tempted by the figs exactly, but seeing these Atari packaging image on a action fig blister card is awesome.
