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.

Barbie Glam Vacation Jet? New for 2010 - Link

Ah so this is the Barbie Vacation Jet. Reminds me of the other Barbie planes.

Hmmm ... this, I think someone could create something like this.

My crew have a helicopter - that's enough air travel for them.

A second set of Rocawearing So in Style dolls will be available at Entertainment Earth.

I like this Grace's outfit and this Chandra's outfit and hair style.

Shades of Black, Part Four: M & C Toys Power Team

Behold the Black Power Team members that I have to date. (Only one figure withheld - he has green stripes painted across his face.) One figure has a light complexion but most have dark brown complexions. So if you seek darker complected figure AND articulation, check the Power Team selections.
