Another one just occurred to me, the second series of BraveStarr, which would have featured Judge J.B., a female for the line.

Geez, did Hasbro drop the ball on Small Soldiers! NOT marketing the Commando Elite as the draw for the film (it was called Small SOLDIERS) and overdoing it with the Gorgonites...

They may have been the good guys, but this was a case where the "bad guys" were SOOOOOOOOOOOO much cooler!

Like most Small Soldiers fans, I love the Commando Elite, but I'll stick up for the Gorganites insomuch as I think Archer was a good, noble character with a great design.

Annoyingly, one of the reasons there was never a follow-up to Small Soldiers (a CGI series was heavily rumored) was executive producer Steven Speilberg's shock and awe at the Commando Elite's popularity. He ordered them severly watered down for any future incarnations, though I'm sure he chose other terms.

Under those circumstances, I'm glad there was never a cartoon.

As for the Kenner/Hasbro figures, I absolutely love them. One of my favorite lines of all time, easily, but boy does the lack of Link Static and Butch Meathook ACHE!

Ya know JJJ,

I actually customized a Link and Butch! Unfortunately they are really SMALL! HAH!

I used the playing pieces from the board game and the men from some Tonka line with drivers of similar stature. Nice look overall, but they are like only 2 inches tall!

But on the upside, at least we got Kip Killigan and Nick Nitro!

WOW WOW WOW! I'd never seen those! Holy crap, I could care less about Marvel Legends, but I would be all over those sets. I love those old Kirby/Lee Monster comics.

I used to pine for the unreleased 4th (?) S:TAS wave that was supposed to have the Flash in it, but the Mattel JL Flash was worth waiting half a decade for.

I was probably the only one on Earth who bought the cool Astro City figures and was hoping to get the Jack in the Box and Winged Victory figures that were supposedly prototyped for that failed line...

Ah! Good ol Toy Vault! They specialize in FAILED lines!

I remember wanting Astro City, Farscape and LOTR figures than never got made too!

I still really like their Gimli figure, as it's pretty much the only one that is still a cool figure whereas pretty much all the other Toy Vault figures are totally outclassed by the Toy Biz LOTR stuff.

Except the Barrow Wight I guess, since he never made the movie cut...

Toy Vault pretty much only makes plush now right?

Oh Yeah... I have seen the prototypes for the Toy Vault Wingged Victory and Jack in the Box. Boy, that is when I was JUST starting out and Toy Vault was one of the first companies that talked to me.

There was also the Flattworld 8" AC Jack-in-the-Box. I won an Flattworld figure in a contest from their website and I was given the option of waiting a getting one of their "upcoming" figures as my prize. I picked Jack...I'm still waiting. :evil:

Don't know if this is totally cool but I had my Toyfare #40 from 2000 handy so I thought I could shed some light to this discussion.

Came across an old article, which originally appeared on Comics Continuum back in October of 2000, about an announced 4th wave of X-Men Movie figs from Toybiz, which included:

# Pit Fighter Logan with cage from movie's early fight scene.

# Battle Ravaged Wolverine.

# Prison Magneto with plastic chess set from final scene.

# Lab-Tech Jean Grey with Senator Kelly on lab table.

# Senator Kelly with containment chamber from when Magneto captured him.

We have the license for Bucky O' Hare, Toxic Crusaders and we are bringing Extreme Ghostbusters back. You guys have alot of good suggestions listed here. We are taking feedback for the new lines we are doing and suggestions for other retro lines fans would like to see brought back as well.

Sadly, those are the only images I have. I think that's the size they were sent. I don't remember the results of our poll offhand, but the line obviously never progressed so maybe that wasn't the right time for it.

It would be neat if they revived that idea one of these days...

Bumping it becuase someone posted this link over at RTM. Also you think that Art Adam's monster line might be something similar to what this Monster pack is that's supposed to be coming out?

I'm with MWC on the Earthworm Jim stuff. I really wanted to see that hit the streets. I remember seeing pics of Prof. Monkeyforahead and Queen Slugforabutt. It would have been beautiful.

Anyway, yeah Toy Vault LOTR had some figures ready to roll - Elrond was one I think - before the license went *poof*!

Also, there were a few Tigersharks items that didn't make it out, including a few figures if memory serves.

Peace!
