    Plaid Stallions McActionfigures : More Fun than Burgers



    My local Eaton's growing up had a huge McDonaldland display that looked just like this in a cube in the middle of their toy department. I recall being kind of in awe of the diorama but it couldn't compete with Big Jim, Bulletman or the Mego Superheroes in my five year old brain.


    I was later told by a salesman for Irwin Toys (the distributor in Canada) that I wasn't alone in that.

    I wanted the Big Mac and Mayor figures . Not sure why I didn't get any of the reissues when they came out.
    WH--? Where in blazes are we, Wall Crawler?

    Great timing. I just made Brick Mantooth score a KO-1 over Hamburlar for my kids yesterday during a game.

    I had a stuffed Ronald...with no McDonald's around back then to go to. Still, I recognized him from TV commercials. Had I seen these, I may have wanted them.

    The repro Remco figures used to be easy to get, and reasonably priced. Now they're going up up up!

    I think I remember seeing these in tv commercials, but I don't remember seeing them at local McDonalds
    or toy stores, but then again when I went to the local Kresge's or Child Worlds, I went straight to the aisle
    with the Mego's, so maybe Big Mac and the gang were in another section, perhaps with the Waltons Mego's
    because I don't remember seeing those either.

    After encountering this thread, Hollywood might want to start working on a dark live-action Hamburgerlar movie. First of a film saga.

    I had a stuffed Hamburglar from McD's but I don't remember seeing these when I was a kid.

    I loved my 1976 Hamburglar. I chose him as my Grade 1 grading present. He fought equally well alongside my Super-Hero Megos, my Big Jim and my Bulletman. I recall him coming along to my grade 2 class for a Show-&-Tell spotlight. If I remember right, the knob on his back turned his head.
