Acrobatic Run

Pocket Power was a line a toys from Tyco/Sega. I vaguely remember the commercials but did not remember the skater. This guy is from 1990. He fits in a pocket sized cartridge which holds the figure, his board and a ripcord. The ripcord fits into the center of the board which is basically a top. There is a small metal cylinder which protrudes from the bottom center of the deck and touches the ground. This cylinder spins with the top and moves him around. The figure can be placed on one of three pegs, which fit into his right foot or his upraised left hand. He also bends at the waist and both legs bend independently of each other. Varying his position will change his center of gravity and make him take different paths.
