Oh yes! I particularly like the scorpion weapon. Is that an Easy Rider motorbike? Was it by Matchbox? It's a good substitute for the Ultrasonic Scooter.

HAHA!!! well spotted! It is indeed a MATCHBOX "EASY RIDER" !! the scorpion hand is a pen topper/finger fright from TM TOYS - they also do a GREAT mantis and ant which fit really well!
MORE TERRIBLE PHOTOS COMING SOON!!!

I likes Membros. Laughing

So, whose who in the pic? In terms of the family?

Membros would also have made a cool Enemy figure in Action Force. Cool

Boom boom!

Do you have the Easy Rider figure? That's an old, old memory.

I had the figure for a while but it was HORRIBLE, all one colour (chocolate brown) - i think it was articulated, some old hippy in a fringed jacket! I got rid of it because MEMBROS was always sitting on there and looked way better, he fits perfect!

Yeah the shit brown hippy with the tassels. He had swiveling shoulders and hips but they didn't quite manage to make him stand up as well as sit on the saddle. Didn't he have big hoops on his heels?
As a kid I was so obsessed with action figures, I didn't see how kids could be into toy cars and vehicles that had no visible drivers. My brother had Easy Rider and he was a bit more interesting.

Thats the one, great big hoops on his cuban heels as you say, so you cant display him without the bike... and once MEMBROS got on there old tassel boy was out.
I could never collect "human" figures as a kid (and still now) all the other kids were going mad for LUKE SKYWALKER (boring) and i just wanted all the wildest monsters... guess i turned out ok though!!!! Razz

We'll be the judge of that! Smile

My brother cut those hoops off but the figure still wouldn't stand.

I know what you mean about human figures but no figures is worse. Never bought the Skywalker figure either. He was pretty crap with that chunky skirt and a tiny head that resembled nobody but was blonde. Hammerhead was always my favourite.

Very Happy NOW YOURE TALKIN!!! - HAMMERHEAD was my FAVE too!!! easily the best sculpt, his vieny arms and shifty eyes! plus his striking FREDDY MERCURY style leotard!!
As you say the human figures didnt even have any features!!!
(second favourite was GREEDO).
