Custom Made Atari Action Figures
Using old G.I. Joe figures, Dan Polydoris aka Chicago Toy Collector picked some classic Activision games from the Atari VCS (2600) and created something amazing. Considering that just about everything in the 80’s had an action figure or breakfast cereal, it’s kind of hard to believe this never happened for real back then.

The cover for Adventure on the Atari looks nothing like the title it’s promoting. The game itself is essentially made of a series of rectangles, with a few blocky enemies prowling around, while the main adventurer is simply a square. You’re forced to imagine the fantasy world you’re meant to be exploring. But imagining it is a whole lot easier thanks to the vibrant artwork of Susan Jaekel. Because of her painting on the cover of the box, you knew that you were actually venturing through a hedge maze with three huge dragons lurking inside. It filled in the gaps left by the game’s rudimentary graphics — and Adventure was far from alone.
