This handsome man might look like Brian Blessed, but he is infact a character from the cartoon show Thundercats. This is one of later toys from the late eighties. He is an unusual figure and was produced after the main characters had already hit shelves. Ram-Bam is not to be confused with Ram Man, who featured in 'He Man.' They are very alike and both have similar actions!
The figure is about five inches in height and is rather squat in his appearance. His humongous tummy gives him the ramming action he desires and there is a ramming mechanism on the toy so you can actually have him ram into people, which is pretty good fun. This feature also enhances the play value.
He is very well made, the plastic cast stands up to repeated wear and tear and my figure lasted me many years and the paintwork stays on too which is very important for collectors later on down the line. He benefits from glorious bright colours all over, quite primary but very striking and this is why he is such good fun.
I adore his expression, he really looks like he cannot be bothered! His beard seems to hide his mouth and it is a rather fed up grimace. You can move his arms and legs and the toy is a neat item to chuck around as it is almost ball shaped.
If you fancy buying one loose you will pay but three to four pounds from an online auction site. If you try to find a boxed figure, prices will be closer to twelve pounds, but boxed figures of this chap are hard to come by. Overall, a very chunky and desirable piece and also jolly good fun!
