Remco Power Shield Captain America!

msh_cap_powershield

Ah, I forgot about this one when I posted the Secret Wars picture. Remco desperately wanted to produce action figures of DC and Marvel characters, but couldn't due to previous licensing agreements with Mego. So, instead of producing action figures, they produced "inaction figures" that had a built-in motor that could do stuff! You're probably familiar with the Energized Spider-Man figure, but Remco also did Green Gobblin, Hulk, Superman and Batman figure, too... and the Captain America one picture above! These figures had little, if any, articulation whatsoever.
