I think this figure from Durham wonderfully illustrates the true joy and cheap chicanery often involved with Rack Toys. The packaging is enticing and vibrant, not to mention well done. It promises action with a slightly "Evel Knievely" setting.
The figure however, is a chubby guy with a flag, who looks like he might wear that helmet everywhere he goes.
As the star-burst proudly announces, he's got "Waving Flag" action! Hunh?
This was the kind of toy that clouded your mind long enough for you to get five miles away from the Zayres or the Big K, until you began to realize just exactly what you've gotten yourself into.
