Watching Teletoon Retro’s 80s toy-commercial cartoon block got me thinking about a toy line I had a few figures from as a kid.
There wasn’t, so far as I know, a cartoon or comic book line associated with them.
They were contemporary with Masters of the Universe, as well as scaled and constructed like them - a generic hard plastic body, generic (and, IIRC, easily removable) arms, a rubber head, etc. All of the generic parts were pretty similar to the generic bits of MotU figs. I’m operating under the assumption that they were knock-offs of MotU.
They didn’t come with much in the way of accessories - a weapon and maybe a shield. Don’t think they had removable armour like many MotU figs did. Though they may have…I had a tendency to lose that stuff.
At least one of them had a light in his chest. Or he may not have been part of the same line - I never had him, my cousin did. I’m 99% sure he was, though.
Some of the heads were normally human-like, others were less so. I don’t THINK there was a good guy/bad guy divide on that note like in MotU or Thundercats. But that might just be my ignoring the stated factions and aligning the characters in ways that I liked.
The one I remember most clearly, because I really liked him, and he ended up as an ally of He-Man in my play was blue, and his head had pointy ears and a beak. I called him Vulcan, but that might not have been his name, but rather a name I assigned due to his pointy ears. Either he was nameless, or he was named something LIKE Vulcan, or Falcon, though, I’m pretty sure.
If anybody has any idea what I’m talking about, thanks in advance, if not…well, there isn’t a lot to go on, I admit, but I’ve seen this board make hits on less information.
