Tyco Looney Tunes Action Figures

In 1993, Tyco got the Looney Tunes license and created a whole series of merchandise which included a set of action figures, talking figures, PVC figures, plush dolls, a board game, and probably some other stuff I am forgetting. Here is the back of the package of one of the action figures.



The set consisted of Taz, Marvin, Bugs (with a weird carrot-shooting... thing), the Road Runner and Coyote.



I have always found it amusing how easily the Road Runner figure's head comes off. I imagine it was done so kids could let Wile E. win once in awhile...

They look nice. That's reminds the Playmates Looney Tunes figures i see in 1998 with figures from the cartoons "Hare-Way to the Stars" and "Fast and Furry-ous". I wonder if it's possible to see this out today.

I still have the Bugs one with the carrot shooter somewhere around in my attic. The little carrot shooter didn't shoot that far if I remember correctly. Maybe a foot, tops. Bugs had really short legs, too, he'd keep falling over.

It is also impossible for the Coyote figure to stand up on his own without falling over... I had to lean him against that stack of books to take the picture.
