    I’m not sure if it was my idea or someone else’s, but I did have a Ronald and the Hamburglar. I remember playing with them, but if memory serves, their play value was limited. Think about it. What do you do with a couple of six inch clowns? The other figures that I had were either inches or above or 3 3/4 inches (Star Wars and Adventure people) and not clowns.

    Nonetheless, they were very well executed figures. I recognized this even then.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    I don't have much to say... and maybe its just the 70's T.V.-addled, eating-disordered 6-year-old in me, but I just have to say that I think this tiny line was one of the all-time best.

    Thank you.

    if I could hunt those down, I could see myself preferring that over the unwieldy Remco McDonaldland playset cardboard base.

    Cool pic, looks like a shopping mall food court section, gotta love the Borg in the background by the trash barrel.

    The Barbie McD's is nice--I think there're a couple of version of it. Even Joe collectors use it.

    I think these figures are some of Remco's best efforts. I only had a Cap'n Crook, seeing these all makes me wish I had more.
