These Contra Game Action Figures Feature Authentically Limited Colors

The Contra game was one of the finest gaming triumphs of the 1990s, so it's only fitting that they be immortalized in a slightly more tangible and touchable version in the form of licensed action figures.

This is of course something of an old-school game that was popular when gaming was largely carried out in 8 bits, far from the ultra-HD games of the current day and age. Fittingly, these Contra game action figures feature the limited color palette and stocky appearance that the game's on-screen characters sported.

These Contra action figures could've been manufactured to look very realistic and colorful, but that would go against every 1990s' child's memory of the Contra game. That being the case, these action figures and packaging stay true to the graphics of the time in an astute example of retro gaming marketing.
