Action Figures Trivia Questions

1. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toyline was produced by which toy company?

From Quiz
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Answer: Playmates

Playmates Toys is a company based out of California and Hong Kong. Playmates first introduced the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toyline in 1988 after the premiere of the animated series in 1987.

2. Known for his stupidity and his tendency to be destroyed in many episodes of the TV series, "Beast Wars," Waspinator's toy figure includes a hand-held cannon and a changeable head. What type/size of toy is Waspinator described as?

From Quiz "Beast Wars": The Figures

Answer: Deluxe

The "Beast Wars'" figures come in 4 sizes - basic (smallest), deluxe, mega, and ultra (largest). Other figures which come in the deluxe-sizes are Cheetor, Tarantulus, and Rhinox. The hand cannon of the Waspinator doubles as the sting/abdomen of the toy's beast form (a wasp). The cannon is able to launch missiles from it. The head of Waspinator's beast form splits into two and forms the chest region of the robot form.

3. Who has the highest level of "Firepower" among the original 18 Autobots? (according to figure tech specs)

From Quiz G1 Transformers Tech Specs

Answer: Bluestreak

Bluestreak's Firepower level was a 9 out of 10, which makes sense given that his function was that of "gunner". Optimus Prime's was an 8, and both Windcharger's and Wheeljack's were 7.

4. Johnny lived on a ranch. What was it named?

From Quiz Johnny West-Best of the West

Answer: Circle X Ranch

8. Who was the highest ranking cassette? (according to figure tech specs)

From Quiz G1 Transformers Tech Specs

9. Johnny had a wife. What was her name?

From Quiz Johnny West-Best of the West

Answer: Jane West

The original issue Jane is known as the 'ugly' or 'long face' Jane among collectors. Subsequent Jane's had a more attractive face. Her accessories included a lipstick and comb (for her plastic hair?)

From Quiz The World Of GI Joe

12. What was the name of the Foot Clan spider tank toy released in 1988?

From Quiz Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Answer: Knucklehead

Knucklehead is the name of the Foot Clan spider tank that was released in 1988. The toy was a robotic walker with eight legs that was intended to be piloted by an action figure. The Knucklehead featured a string and a reeling mechanism that allowed the user to lower it down like an actual spider. It also had a gimmick where the legs could wrap around another figure "capturing it."

13. This "Beast Wars" figure never appeared in the animated television series. However, this figure was a variation on the toy figure of Terrorsaur, who *did* appear in the TV series. What is the name of this basic toy?

From Quiz "Beast Wars": The Figures

Answer: Lazorbeak

Both Terrorsaur and Lazorbeak transformed into their robot forms from their beast mode, the pterodon. The main difference between the two toys is their coloration - Terrorsaur being coloured red, and Lazorbeak being purple. Also, they have different patterns on their back - Terrorsaur having a spotted pattern, whilst Lazorbeak is striped. A third toy which is similar in appearance to these is Fractyl, who is metallic blue in colour, with gold patterns. All three are basic (small) toys and can transform simply by lifting the head of the pterodon. The only weapon possessed by this figure is a small hand cannon, which is unable to fire any missiles.

14. Who manufactured the Best of the West toys?

From Quiz Johnny West-Best of the West

Answer: Marx

Marx was the toy manufacturer responsible for bringing us the Electroshot Shooting Gallery, Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots, Marvel the Mustang, trains, dolls and other wonderful toys. The company was sold to Quaker Oats in the early 70's- the last year of production was 1978.

Hasbro celebrated its 300th figure with a new Boba Fett featuring a new pose and a special package.

17. Which "Beast Wars" figure, one of the largest of the series, transformed from its beast mode, the gorilla, and featured numerous weapons and missiles?

From Quiz "Beast Wars": The Figures

Answer: Optimus Primal

Optimus Primal is perhaps the most famous of all of the transformers, both as the leader of the Maximals, and the ancestor of his namesake, Optimus Prime of the Autobots. He showed qualities of loyalty, righteousness, and acceptance in the TV series. The Optimus Primal toy figure was in ultra size (the largest) and so takes several actions to transform it from its beast (gorilla) form into its robot form. Whilst the beast form is typically black, the robot form displays several white, red and blue patterns. The weapons possessed by this figure include cannons mounted on both shoulders and on the left wrist, all able to fire missiles, as well as two long swords.

18. What was the name of Johnny's horse?

From Quiz Johnny West-Best of the West

Answer: Thunderbolt

Thunderbolt came in several colors including brown, black, sorrel and palomino. A full set of tack was included- saddle, bridle, saddle blanket and saddle bags.

19. What year was 'the G.I. Joe' action figure introduced to the US market?

20. This figure is one of the smallest "Beast Wars" toys (basic). It is a Predacon, is blue and green in coloration and exists as a beetle when in beast mode. Which figure is this?

From Quiz "Beast Wars": The Figures

Answer: Insecticon

This is one of the lesser known toys of the series, never having appeared in the animated TV show. Furthermore, it was claimed that the mould of the toy was damaged shortly after it was first released, meaning that it could not be reproduced. This makes Insecticon one of the rarest "Beast Wars" figures. It was the second toy I ever had :) Insecticon is a basic toy and so is able to transform from beast mode into robot form in one simple movement. It comes with a gun similar in shape to a cross-bow. This gun is in two halves, located in the abdomen of the beetle.

21. Johnny had two daughters. What were their names?

From Quiz Johnny West-Best of the West

Answer: Josie and Janice

Janice had brown hair and Josie was blonde. The girls came complete with accessories including a purse, compact and wristwatch.

22. In the GI Joe logo, what replaced the 'dot' above the j?

From Quiz The World Of GI Joe

Answer: A soldier's head

This is one of the most easily recognized logos by collectors anywhere. It has been largely unchanged since its creation.

23. What is the hardest Episode 1 action figure to find?:

From Quiz Star Wars Action Figures 1995-2002

Answer: Jar Jar (Naboo Swamp) with Fish

This was probably the shortest produced Episode 1 figure making it a real challenge to find.

24. What was not an early conceptual name for 'G.I. Joe' ?

From Quiz Collectible Action Figures of the '60s

Answer: 'Butch' Army Infantry

They decided to keep it simple and condense it down to one name only, 'G.I. Joe'.

25. Which member of the Punk Frogs was the first to receive an action figure?

From Quiz Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Answer: Genghis Frog

In the animated series, the Shredder mutated a group of frogs to battle the Turtles. The Punk Frogs were given the names of historic warriors by the Shredder. The Punk Frogs would eventually ally themselves with the Turtles. Genghis Frog, named after Genghis Khan, was the first of the frogs to receive an action figure in 1989.

26. A basic "Beast Wars" figure is Airazor, the beast mode of which is the peregrine falcon. Like all "Beast Wars" toys, Airazor possesses a hologram which shows either the Maximal or Predacon symbol. Is Airazor a Maximal or a Predacon?

From Quiz "Beast Wars": The Figures

Answer: Maximal

Airazor is fairly unique in that she is female. However, it should be noted that in the original Japanese series Airazor was male. In the "Beast Wars" television series, Airazor had a close relationship with fellow Maximal, Tigatron, with whom she eventually combined with to form the transformer, Tigerhawk. Originally, Airazor was a basic toy, but she was later reproduced in deluxe size. The original toy is yellow and brown in colour, includes a claw-shaped gun, and possesses movable wings.

27. Johnny also had two sons. What were their names.

From Quiz Johnny West-Best of the West

Answer: Jamie and Jay

Jay was a blonde and Jamie had brown hair. The accessories for the boys included a pistol, knife and tether.

28. Some of the early Joes had a severe problem, what was it?

From Quiz The World Of GI Joe

Answer: The heads would shrink

For the first couple of years, some of the heads would have a shrinkage problem. This was due to not having enough plasticizer in the mix. The problem was corrected.

29. Mego released a 12-inch tall action figure line in 1977 based on this hugely popular rock band. They wore makeup, appeared in a Marvel comic book, and were known to "Rock and Roll All Night". Can you name them?

From Quiz Do You Remember Mego?

Answer: KISS

The "KISS" line was produced from 1977-1979 and was another great success for MEGO. Band members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss were widely available on toy shelves everywhere. Peter Criss's figure was produced in lower numbers than the others due to rumors he was leaving the band. He did not actually leave the band until 1980, when he was replaced by drummer Eric Carr.
