Thread: 8" Joe Namath

    I'm a football fan and I would love more football players, but Ali will be great also. I had the original Ali figure as a kid and I remember it fondly. Up with the sports, ease back on the sitcoms.

    Fair enough, but the Team Mates helmet wouldn't have fit this head. Using a Big Jim helmet and pads as prototypes might have been useful, I've not compared the fit but they look good.

    It's nice that they finally did real socks. Way better than the painted on ones.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I agree!

    I like this figure a lot. I hope the Ali is as well done. I’d love to see a Pele, too
    Fresh, not from concentrate.

    Oh, overall, I think the 8” Joe looks terrific! But, the helmet does look like the ones I used to get from those vending machines all those years ago. I realize that Mego couldn’t use the same helmet as worn my the Team Mate figures (though I don’t think the size is too far off). I just meant that they could have done a better tooling of their helmet when you compare it to the same type of helmets that come with the Team Mates. They aren’t elaborate, by any stretch of the imagination, but they do fit the figures well and look great on them. That’s all I’m saying that Mego would have been better off shooting for. However, as I said earlier, if this is a one off football figure, which I’d bet is the case, I’m fine with the current helmet. The figure is very good, overall, as far as I can tell.

    If you were born in the 20th century, it would have been hard to not hear of him.

    Maybe you are a lot younger AND don't watch football.
