In the 1980s I started seeing sci fi action figures made in toy soldier scale. These figures have at least two points of articulation and range from about 50mm up to about 65mm. There are more of these kind of action figures in the post apocalyptic toy soldiers page. These are my favorites. This is by no means a complete list.
Kinder Egg Figures
Dino Riders Rulons
