I just posted a blog here at AFi about the Vonner mystery line. Clue's are pointing heavily to something with Valiant? Is it just Valiant? We don't know yet. But, assuming there is a Valiant Comics-based toyline on the horizon this is the place to talk about it.

What do you think of the prospect? What/who would you like to see?

I wasn't much into Valiant back in the day outside of Turok, but the God Key character aren't part of the new Valiant. I always though X-O Man of War and Bloodshot were pretty cool. I remember looking forward to the X-O figure that one of the small indy toymakers of the 90s was going to make until it got canned. Would love to have a new X-O figure.

I'm pretty excited about the possibilities. The new Valiant is pretty cool. And, if these end up being 3-3/4", well, then I'd be really hyped!

Just saw the blog post Jeff. I have to wonder if it's not a full Valiant line, but just like you I'm left with far more questions than answers.

If you haven't been picking up the new Valiant comics, run don't walk to do so. Every one of them I've read has been fantastic. I was a HUGE Valiant fan when they were at their hayday, and hated how the company went out with a whimper. So I can hardly wait for some specifics as to what is going on here.

I'd pick up only a few. Turok for sure, especially if he comes with some articulated dinosaurs to fight. Maybe X-O.

Beyond that? Probably not much.

FYI, Valiant no longer has the rights to the Gold Key characters including Turok.

Which is really sad. I won't miss Solar and Turok as much, but Magnus is one of my favorite characters. His storyline with Rai is one of my favorites in comic history.

If these are 3-3/4 scale ill pick up a few. Definitely Shadowman, Bloodshot and X-O Manowar. I may still pick them up if they look are 6-inch if they look good.

Well, that sucks. I guess I won't be buying any then. :?

I'd totally be down with a Valiant line. I always wanted that XO Manowar figure shown all those years ago (by Toy Vault, right?)

I was thinking the same thing Juilius. It was the blue X-O armor I think the one from the Acclaim comics run.

I don't think it was Toy Vault, but for the life of me I can't remember who it was and I can't seem to find anything online about it.

Any way to get Valiant characters in action figure form I will be very down with.

I will have to go out and try reading the new Valiant stuff. I was a huge fan when they all were coming out in 92 and 93. Those first runs of Magnus Robot Fighter and Solar Man of the Atom were amazing. It's too bad those guys wont get made.

Still, would be very down for a XO Manowar, Shadowman, Rai, Archer and Armstrong (which became my favorite title from them).

A Bloodshot figure might be cool.
