This is probably old, but I really like these, both in concept and execution, and especially in their packaging. 

 

Activision (look to be kit-bashed GI Joes)

Neat idea, but a bit generic in execution IMO (in the sense that even Atari fans might have no idea what they were specifically without an explanation.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing someone try 'pixel art' figurines (similar to those "8-bit Mario/Link Nintendo figures) of Atari game icons, as screen-accurate as possible within the medium.

 

Who wouldn't like a blocky li'l desk figure of an Atari Space Invader, or Pitfall Harry, or a Yar, or one of the dragons from 'Adventure'? :grin:

Ah, if only Activision did a Captain N type cartoon show in the early 80's...

There was a Pitfall show.

Looks like some clips may be on YouTube. Have to check that tomorrow.

They are repainted G.I. Joe figures, done a couple of years ago. There's an older thread on here somewhere.

The Pitfall cartoon was part of the Saturday Supercade with Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Q*Bert, Space Ace and some others I can't remember now.
