1984 Cannell A-Team- MR. T ( B.A. Baracus)

Mr.T was a staple In my childhood and yours too If you grew up In the 80's.He was a larger than life,In yo face character who stood for everything that was good .Mr. T taught us the right thing to do.He taught us to never bully,stand up for ourselves and to be kind while doing It.He also taught us how to say "I pity da fool!"He was on our lunchboxes,television screens and cereal boxes and frankly,there was no one cooler than!This past week I was able to negotiate with an awesome eBay-er,and I got my very own Mr.T action figure!I already had a B.A. Baracus Galoob 3 3/4 fig but that one ,while cool,just doesn't do him any justice.This Cannell (what the hell Is a Cannell?, I never heard of this toy manufacturer)produced  Mr.T figure Is a better representation of the character,with the jewelry,tattoos and  trademark outfit!





I expected the plastic on this figure to be a little heftier ,but It's really not that chunky.He feels rather light In hand. Alot of these Mr.T  figures are In good shape but the tattoos that have rubbed form general usage and old age.Luckily mine was still Intact.Hes got 8 points of articulation at the head ,arms,waist,legs and knees. 



Look at the guns on this guy!I just love this figure :)


Here's the tale of the tape.The figures In this line weren't quite In scale with Rambo FoF figs, but I remember buying  a Cannell A-Team villain  ,Python,as a kid to duel It out with my Rambo figure.Python Is probably going to be next on my checklist.Sadly ,he came accessory-less ,and that's a shame because he has a nice array of  weapons.


A couple of T's,three If you include me ;) 


Mr.T fits nicely into my vintage display and I pity da fool   who says he doesn't!
