Mega Plumber Action Figure: U.S.
Sure, the Green Lantern fights against evil with his Colossal Cannon, and Spider-Man has his sticky web nunchucks. In a real emergency, though, what most of us need is a man with a plunger. Ergo, the Mega Plumber action figure, created by American Standard (a company that also makes toilets) to help kids “see plumbers as true superheroes.” The six-inch figure comes equipped with his own monkey wrench, miniature toilet, and—so important for superheroes—rubber gloves.
