26. B.A. BARACUS: Isn't He A Doll?!

Remember the early 80s action adventure TV series "The A-Team"? Four soldiers of fortune (ex-members of the U.S. Armed Special Force) team up to go on mercenary missions, while running for their lives from the U.S. government. For three years, Hannibal, Face, Murdoch and B.A. Baracus invaded our homes and became part of our TV consciousness. Former bodyguard-bouncer-wrestler Mr. T made an indelible mark in teeveeland with his portrayal of mohawk-haired B.A.("Bad Attitude") Baracus, a role that made him an instant icon. This action figure, found in a provincial general merchandise shop that carried a lot of old toy stocks, is just one of the thousands of merchandise that was generated by the hit series. I wonder if the 57 year old Mr. T is still kicking ass today.
