Five Reasons Why I Love the Power Team Figures




  1. Reasonably priced

    I have paid from $5.00 to $19.99 for Power Team figures. The $5.00 figures from Dollar General only came dressed, but the $9.99 and $19.99 have included 1:6 scale weapons, mechanical equipment, gym gear, and tables as accessories.


  2. The Strength of the Direct Gaze

    These guys look you in the eye. They mean business. I can believe that they are heroes without capes. (And yes, Kim, most action figures seem to look straight ahead.)


  3. Strike a Pose?

    Can they be posed? Oh, yes. The Power Team Guys can move it, move it. Do they look good while posing? Yes again. Some of the earlier models have huge ham-fists, but later figures have better proportioned hands and fingers.


  4. Interesting Faces

    Look at their faces - not a single bland face in the lot. They have personality.


  5. World Representatives - Various Races

    Finally, they represent the world. Name a race or ethnicity, and you can likely find a representative of that group in the Power Team figures.

The accessories these guys came with were amazing. Bunk beds, donkeys, kayaks, all sorts of goodies.

I love them, too, for all the above reason!

Hi, MSJ! Yes, their accessories are exciting. Better proportioned than Mattel stuff and in realistic colors! I love the donkey, too, LOL. I mean, how often do you see a 1:6 scale donkey?

Hi, DBG! We have great taste, LOL.

POW-ER TEAM! POW-ER TEAM!

Oh, I do looooooove my Power Team guys! Everything you said is so right on. They are wonderful, fantastic, beautiful guys. I know what you mean about the direct gaze. They seem to really be making eye contact with you, instead of just staring straight ahead. There's such a great variety, and such great faces. It's tough to get an ugly one-- although I'm always glad when I do, so I can yank his head off and steal his body, lol. And there are so many of them! I have a bunch, and I don't have any of the ones in your picture. Yay, Power Team!

SG, I have to find the guys I don't have. Sigh. Next time I can buy DAFs.

If you want to treat/torture yourself to photos of more Power Team guys, check this Webshots folder. That collector also has the FEMALE Power Team figures as well as figures I have not seen that might be new to you, too. Sigh.

I love the M&C guys, best though.

I miss my Power Team guys. I have quite a few but I still miss being able to go into the stores and pick and choose from the shelves full.

5 x trueeeeeeeeee!!!

I agree with you in every single word! They are handsome, they got diffrent colors of eyes (not ONLY the blue like Action Mans etc!) I love that articulation body!

PS: What a lovely army of Power Boys you have :)

Hi Dvscolectr and Eibhlin!

@Dvscolectr - thanks for visiting. I hope that you are able to find the Power Team guys that you miss. They are still available in the USA. (sorry, not sure if they sell outside of the USA.)

@Eibhlin - go Power Team guys, go! They joined hands and bowed at their waists to thank you for the compliment.
