Vintage Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band Action Set

March 27, 2010

I still remember getting these guys on Christmas morning 1983. Well, not these specific figures, since they got “lost” somewhere along the line. But I remember getting a set of Rebo Band figures. On the one hand, they’re kind of silly figures because they don’t do anything but play instruments. You have to get kind of creative if you want to have adventures with them. But I just love the designs of the aliens, and for vintage figures these toys are very accurate versions of what we saw on screen. The band consists of Max Rebo himself on the keyboard, Sy Snootles on vocals, and Droopy McCool on the… whatever that thing is.

Apparently these either came with a black instrument and silver mics or a silver instrument and black mics — never all silver like I have here. But I kind of like the all-silver look so I’m not overly bothered by that.

Here’s one of the original TV commercials for the set:
