I had the whole set when I was a kid. I still have the pontoon boat that detaches from the convertible float plane.

Poor snow-flake.

I don’t say it doesn’t deserve it, just that those comics haven’t been very fun, just depressing.

That’s fair! My favorite by far are the fun-pak comics, but I don’t really get tired of the ‘smash Trump in the face’ ones…

I also like the fun-pak ones. I absolutely cannot get enough “Actually it’s Frankenstein’s monster” jokes.

The cool thing about adventure people was the ball and socket neck joint. Kenner action figures tended to lose their heads.

So you super glue / put the wrong heads back on the other body, create your own reality.

Oh, the things that Male Mountain Climber, Male Ranger, and Female Swimmer saw and did; you wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Uncle Ryan. They watched i-beams glitter in the dark of the Tanner House basement. All those moments will be lost in time, like toys in eBay. Time to bid.

technically the kenner heads rotated-- but not after supergluing. (Basically, kenner’s quality control was awful-- but since they had the license, it didn’t matter)

I had Johnny Apollo by Marx. His rubbery fingers fell off, but I still loved his craggy, mature, realistic face.
