I'm going use this thread to spotlight the unusual playthings companies actually made for kids, thinking they'd actually want to play with them. First up: The J.J. Armes action figure! [image=http://www.spymall.com/investigators/Armes_doll.jpg] Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you: that figure pictured above has realistic prosthetic hooks for hands. He was made in the 1970s by Ideal Toys, and based on a real private investigator of the same name, who lost his hands in a childhood accident, but still managed to overcome such adversity to become a private investigator. Ideal hoped he'd be as big a seller as their Evel Knievel toys, but well.....I think you can see why that didn't happen. I mean, would you have wanted to play with a toy of a guy with no hands when you were a kid? Also: Slade!
