So I've noticed that there is not a Captain Power section on here. Being that it was one of my favorite toy lines as a kid I figured I'd start a section so everyone can show off what they got or to just chat about Captain Power stuff (toys, cartoons, tv show, books,etc.) in general. I have been collecting Captain power stuff, along with many other lines, for several years now. I always looked forward to the cartoon and show when I was a child. I'd eagerly wait to blast away at my parent's tv so to defeat the evil Lord Dread and his BIO DREAD warriors. Those were the days. Well I hope we can keep this thread going. ENJOY!!!

Cool collection! I only had Captain Power and Tank Ellis as a kid but I got good use out of them. I'm sure the good Captain doubled as Robocop a few times until the Kenner line appeared. Heh!

I hadn't realized how extensive the Captain Power line was. It seemed to come and go and I never saw how the TV interaction really worked. It was a passing interest for me, but still memorable. It's always fun to see the old lines chock-full of vehicles and playsets. Ah, the 80's...

I used to think that this was such a cool action feature gimmick when I was younger. And then I saw the show ...

I remember enjoying the show when it first ran back in '87 or so. I wish they released it on DVD! The toys were on closeout for a long time, particularly tons of the Corporal Pilot Chase figure which was rarer earlier on. I never saw the last two (Colonel Stingray Johnson and Tritor) at retail and I'm still looking for a U.S. carded Stingray Johnson to this day.

Congratulations on such an awesome collection! :D

Thanks! My Captain Power collection has been my main focus as of late. I recently completed my vintage Star Wars figures and after I complete my Captain Power collection I think I might move on to the Bill and Ted's cartoon toys.

I have a question for you.

I was told Captian power stuff was getting pretty rare lately, expesascily the MIB stuff.

I want to jump in but like I keep saying I'm out of room but I was wondering if I should pick up a few pieces now and store them for later?
