BUCK ROGERS and BSG

So much potential with these two, especially with the 3 3/4 scale. Buck's starfighter is still pretty amazing looking, even by today's standards.

Would have been cool to see a 3 3/4 scale colonial viper, landram and shuttle (just dreaming) and scale cylon fighter. Doubt that was ever in the cards but if they made a landram for Buck, how far off could I be?


Landram was done. You might have been able to get one, if you lived in Canada at the time.

Scale was a bit off though.

Both of the recent ThunderCats lines were cut way short, but the Classics were especially disheartening. I was hoping they would have at least finished off the rest of the main team.

Mattel's Avatar: The Last Airbender line could have been so good. At the time, I don't think there were any other lines doing double jointed articulation apart from Marvel Legends. The line just collapsed under the weight of countless re-releases of the same Aang sculpt with minor variations.

All of which I can still get at Fallas Discount for about $2 each. I need to remember to get an Aang. I want the head for a Kai Ro custom.

SOTA Street Fighter. They eventually got the core characters out, but there was a lot of potential for more great toys of really cool-looking characters. The Alex the showed looked great. Would love to get Rose, Skullomania, so many more.

But the real tragedy was how Darkstalkers never got made. The Anakaris,Talbain, Demetri and especially the first prototype of Morrigan were all amazing. AMAZING. But never got made. The whole thing went downhill so fast but SOTA was at one time making some of the best figures out there. And we could have seen Victor, we could have seen Felicia, so many more.

Legendary Comic Book Heroes. Yes, the Vanguard and Mean Machine they showed looked nice, but the potential of the line is off the charts. Seberal of the LCBH toys that did get produced are amazing, and the boys at formerly-known-as-ToyBiz were doing some of the best work of their career, and they could have made so many more.

Spawn. No kidding, at one time Spawn toys were the best thing since sliced bread. Once they transitiojned to larger statues instead of fun articulated toys, they lost it. But I'd love to see them go back and make their core characters again but to modern standards which I know they are capable of making.

I miss SOTA's Street Fighter line a lot, too. The articulation was very good, but the paint apps were simply stellar. It's like they stepped right out of the screen.

The one guy I wished they had gotten to was Dee Jay. He's the only member of that relatively early "class" that's missing. :(

Not to mention the extra heads and hands. What a great line.

Now if we could just get a comparably equal Mortal Kombat line to go with it!

I really miss that Street Fighter line...it was nearly perfect. The color variants became overwhelming at the end, but overall this was such a fun line. I would have really liked to see the Dee Jay and Alex protos get produced, and wanted to see SOTA make the toyetic characters like Necro, Q, Dudley, Skullomania, etc...so bummed when it ended.

Heck, I still am! I have been searching fruitlessly for the Round 3 clear variants for the past four years... :(

Every DC Line should make a toyman figure. Not because he's cool but because a toy of the Toyman is just funny.

That being said WGSH. imagine how expensive the X-men would be now if that line continued. Flash and Green Lantern would've been cool as well.

You need to check out the Mego Museum site for all of the customs they do there.

Those two are the biggies for me. Well, that and Transformers Generation One but they at least still do commemorative releases for that sometimes. JLU and ThunderCats are the bomb!
