A Playmobil model based on the iconic van from the action-adventure franchise The A-Team is hitting toy shelves next month.
Featuring a red stripe across a black base paint and tires with red mags, the A-Team Van is more than just a mode of transport for the titular heroes. Packed to the roof with technology and equipment, the van is vital to the team’s missions, both as a mobile operations center and a getaway vehicle.
The A-Team Van is a real crowd-puller at almost every fan convention, and with the soon-to-be-released A-Team Van Playmobil model, fans can now experience the legendary vehicle, along with all the members of the titular vigilante group, as an unusual table decoration or as the highlight of a display cabinet.
True to the original, the A-Team Van Playmobil model is sure to impress fans not only with its look, but also with its many functions to play with. The perfect addition to any collection, the toy set is comprised of 69 pieces and comes with figures of John “Hannibal” Smith, Templeton “Faceman” Peck, H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock, and Bosco Albert “B.A.” Baracus.
The A-Team Van Playmobile model will be available in toy stores starting October 25th.
Created by Frank Lupo and Stephen J. Cannell, The A-Team franchise started as a TV series that ran for five seasons on NBC from 1983 to 1987. In 2010, a feature film based on the TV show was released by 20th Century Fox.
The series and the movie followed Hannibal, Faceman, Howling Mad, and B.A. as former U.S. Army Special Forces unit members who were tried by court martial for a crime they had not committed. They were convicted and sentenced to serve terms in a military prison, but later escaped to Los Angeles and began working as soldiers of fortune, while still trying to clear their names and avoid capture by law enforcement and military authorities.
