10 Years, 100 Toys

Adventure Kermit
To celebrate the 10 years of making toys, the ToyFare magazine made a list counting down the 100 best toys of the decade: 10 Years, 100 Toys:

From 1997 onward, toys only got better and better as companies continued to raise the stakes and collector tastes continued to mature. From #100 to #1, these are the figures whose articulation, sculpt, playability and overall cool factor had us in a perpetual state of regression. The rules were simple: it had to have come out in 1997 or later, and no re-issues of toys made pre-1997 were eligible. (Sorry, Imperial Shuttle.)

There are toys of Harry Potter, Captain America, Darth Vader, Batman, Legolas, Buffy, Muppets, Alien, Lara Croft, Chewbacca, Superman, Robocop, Balrog, Godzilla, Iron Man, Indiana Jones, Space Ghost and many other well known characters. Even a Bruce Lee is on the list. However, been a fan of Tim Burton’s creations, for me the best choice was Jack Skellington. By the way, where is El Kabong and South Park action figures on that list?
