I loved that Mumm-Ra figure too!  But I don't recall mailing away for it.  I thought it came with the Mumm-Ra's Tomb playset.  I suppose I'm recalling incorrectly.  Either way I did have it.  The Tomb playset was cool also.  I also liked turning chracter's into other characters even if it was supposed to be used just for turning the mummy into MUMM-RA.

There were a few prototypes made of Boba Fett that fired a missile, but that's all.  None of the figures that were mailed out fired a missile.  The prototypes are worth a small fortune, which has led to a number of fakes being produced over the years.  The missile was disabled because some kid was injured by a missile from a Battlestar Galactica Viper.

I think these toys are being looked at from the wrong POV. It's not the the kid who saved points, or talked their mom into buying the same cereal for months straight to save up UPCs or whatever to finally mail off for this wonder figure, and when it showed up it could have been a turd with a gun or light saber stuck in it and it still would have rocked our world back then. Looking back from today as collector types of course we see the flaws because we are not kids any more. Look at the Boba Fett comments no one is agreeing that it was lame because WHEN IT WAS ORDERED it was the coolest thing we ever got.

And I dont know why you have to diss the Fridge, he was a bankable player back in his day. I remember he was in, i think it was a bacon commerical and he had this huge griddle and was cooking like 20 pounds of bacon or something crazy like that. I'll couldn't find it on youtube, maybe I'll ask the old man and see if he remembers. He was everywhere from Coke commerical to McDonalds.

Just watched the Fridge's GI Joe commerical on youtube, funny as hell to see again, "Watch out Cobra, the Fridge is comin' thru", Only $1.00 shipping charge, man that was a long time ago.

I have been trying to match up and fix my GI Joe stuff from the 80's for EBAY (Is anyone looking for anything? I have alot of stuff through 1986 and I am not making shady deals so let me know and we can deal).

The Fridge was only bankable because he played on the Bears and got more over hyped from the awful crap known as The Super bowl blows shuffle. The figure was a joke since The fridge was huge fat sack of crap. Or did GI Joe get hold of the Super Soldier Serum and a ton of slim fast. I guess Cobra would starve to death after The Fridge at all their  food.

Where is the gut on him? He was bigger than fat basterd. If  it was on any other team he would have been laughed off the field. Granted his ads were not as lame as Jim McMahons Gotcha paint guns by Entertech but I think he was on the Eagles then

But William Perry is a rotund blob and still is, they could have cast him as Blob in Wolverine or in Rob Zombies BLOB film if it still comes back. To include him in the ranks of Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Road Block Duke or Hawk is lame.

Well at least he is not from South Carolina like Sgt Slaughter, I think he is CON servative senator now taking money from BP and Palin. His name is even classified, I can only assume because his family is embarrassed by his tights.

Actually, The Fridge was only huge by the standards of the time.  These days, almost all defensive linemen for the NFL are in excess of 300 lbs.

Thank you Wyldstaar for giving SONYMAN something else to swallow.

littlemikey you were 5 at the time of that season. Have you been in Texas your whole life? I can understand how a Texas education could slow you down.

Thanks for the snappy comeback that I heard in 1977. If you are not so little then I am guessing you are swallowing  a lot more than me.

Not to mention the fact that I never said large fat overweight rotund over eating pigs could not play football.. I said that he could not play without the help of the Bears. team at that time. Maybe if he was jacked up on cocaine like Michael Irvin and the rest of the Cowboys of the 1990's he actually would have had a chance at a viable career and not just the all you can eat buffet line.
