    Alas, they were alone in their original 1970s-1980s incarnations... and they were among the last toys left at 6pm* Christmas Eve:

    Samurai

    inorite?

    It's not like anyone under 18 years old this year would know about the *original* SuperFriends run.

    Unless he was a total DC comics omega-nerd.

    I'm surprised Apache Chief isn't there. I think he was another Super Friends underdog.

    Also, kinda disappointed in the quality (or lack of) in those action figures. I think we have the technology now to hide those moving joints. Guessing these were in the bargain bin?

    More or less.

    And I always thought Apache Chief got the short end of the stick too.

    Samurai suffered from about the most bizarre costume design as well, the top part of a formal haori with whalebone inserts to stiffen and flare the shoulders, meeting with ... speedo bottoms...?

    Eeeks.

    If I had my way, he'd (Samurai) get a total makeover as some sort of kick-ass cyborg samurai with integrated weaponry in his cybernetic frame.

    Yeah, even I (who still think Superman being cornered by Lex made me gay) find it hard to understand what DC was doing with it's positive ethnic role model Superfriends.
