It's seldom that a toy appears today that isn't a movie tie-in or geared up with some new technology. Imagine how interesting a simple 3 inch tall articulated figure has to be to get the attention of the entire toy industry. In 2003, Stikfas figures won the coveted "Best Original Concept" award from Wizard's Toyfare (the leading magazine of the toy industry). It was the first time in years that the award was given to a non-electronic toy. That makes sense: these figures are really fun and became an instant classic.
Stikfas kits come in several sizes; Lite Packs include a figure and some accessories, while Mega Packs can even include vehicles. Once assembled, the figures cut an atmospheric silhouette of characters not often depicted in children's toys. These two kits are among the latest batch of Stikfas, a Viking and an Egyptian.
