A-Team (Esquadrao Classe A) in Glasslite Catalog
Glasslite produced an impressive series of figures and vehicles based on some of the most popular 80s TV action properties. The A-Team was available alongside TJ Hooker, the Fall Guy, Knight Rider and others. Imagine if this hall of fame assortment of toys were available in the US! My head would have exploded! As it was, I did get the Galoob 3 & 3/4 A-Team set, which owes its construction and I would argue its colorful presentation to the Joes. After all, the show had the team outfitted in unique yet not exactly bold outfits (well, aside from BA).
The Glasslite figures are still colorful but aren’t wearing all over and single color outfits. Some of the accessories also look a bit familiar, from a Gung Ho backpack to a Ripcord helmet and parachute pack. And is that a Rock ‘n Roll torso?
