As regular readers of That Figures will know, we're big fans of Fisher-Prices' ''you know, for kids'' line of toys, Imaginext. We also love blind-bag figures and toys. And that's why we're big fans of the Imaginext Collectible Figures line.

Action figure and action movie fans will both rejoice at this fantastic Snake Plissken retro doll based on the 1981 John Carpenter film Escape from New York! Featuring the likeness of actor Kurt Russell, this Escape from New York Snake Plissken 8-Inch Retro Clothed Action Figure is poseable, and dressed in fabric clothing similar to the toy lines that helped define the licensed action figure market in the 1970s. Snake wears his iconic camo pants, muscle tee, and assault boots, and comes with a removable jacket, holster belt, and enough weaponry to take down a small army! Blister card packaging with removable protective clamshell.
