    I just bought one of these on EBay not too long ago. MacGyver was apparently popular enough in Brazil for there to be a whole set of action figures… who knew! The one I got is a little worse for the wear than the one pictured above, but it’s still a fun item.

    I saw this at a friends house just this past Monday. He bought it off ebay. He said it was quite possibly “the worst action figure ever” because it didn’t “do” or come with anything. And I rebutted saying Macguyver doesn’t need gadgets because he just makes them all.

    Yes, when I was a kid growing up in Brazil.

    he was very very popular in Brazil and still popular today people just love MAGAIVER (MacGyver). every person who know how to fix something was called MacGyver . ,my friends used to call me MacGyver , just because I fix things, or make my own flash light
