I have little to no faith that the upcoming A-Team remake is going to be anything but terrible, but enduring the trailers has at least given me one glimmer of hope. It seems the classic A-Team van, easily one of the best characters from the original series, hasn’t suffered the same hideous Hollywood facelift as Optimus Prime and his cohorts received. Better yet, as the movie’s release date gets closer, the official tie-in toys are now available for pre-order, including this awesome 15-inch version of B.A. Baracus’ ride.
Apparently the electronically-enhanced van will play sounds and quotes from the movie based on which of the 4-inch figures are placed in the driver’s seat, but since no one will care about the new versions of our favorite A-Team characters, I highly recommend just picking up this van to serve as a replacement for Solo’s Millenium Falcon, or even Vader’s Tie Fighter. In fact Darth would have easily defeated those rebels were he tooling around the galaxy in this thing. $30.99 available from Entertainment Earth sometime in June.
P.S. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, then I highly recommend picking up the original episodes of the A-Team on DVD.
