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?


Some things a pretty rare and can be very hard to find. Most of the figures and ships are really common but over the past year or so I've noticed that prices for the Captain Power stuff MIB is steadily rising. If it is something that you do want to collect I would pick up a few things here and there and hang on to them. If I can help you in any way just let me know. Are you just wanting figures and ships or are you interested in everything Captain Power?

All I know right now is I def want all Mattel figures, vechiles, acessories.

I'm not too sure if I want to branch into anything else that's not a toy.

I've been collecting Captain Power for about a year now. I think you've even beat me bidding on an auction or too! While there are a lot of toys/guns/party favors/etc., here's a list of all the released figures/vehicles/playsets:

Figures:

Captain Power (Series 1)
Lt. Tank Elis (Series 1)
Major Hawk Masterson (Series 1)
Sergeant Scout Baker (Series 2)
Corporal Pilot Chase (Series 2)

Lord Dread (Series 1)
Blastarr Ground Guardian (Series 1)
Soaron Sky Sentry (Series 1)

Col. Stingray Johnson (Series 2) *Rare*
Tritor (Series 2) *Rare*

Soaron Sky Sentry (Japanese Package)
Major Hawk Masterson (Japanese Package)
Blastarr Ground Guardian (Japanese Package)
Captain Power (Japanese Package)
Lord Dread (Japanese Package)
Lt. Tank Elis (Japanese Package)

[I don't believe that the Dread Commander or Dread Trooper were ever released. I have never seen any evidence of their actual release. Many CP toys seem to have never been made after the show was cancelled, I suspect these two mythical figures belong to that category.]

Playsets

Power Base *Rare*
Power On Energizer
Trans-Field Base Station *Uncommon/European Release Only*
Trans-Field Communication Station *Uncommon*
Wind-Up Sauron Beam Deflector *Uncommon/European Release Only*

Power On Energizer (Japanese Package)

Vehicles

Anti-Personnel Patroller *European Release Only/Extremely Rare/Rarest?*
Blastpak 1200 (Individually Packaged) *European Release Only/Extremely Rare*
Dread Stalker *Uncommon*
Friction Motorized A.T.R. Mobile Proton Cannon *European Release Only/Rare*
Interlocker
Magnacycle *Uncommon/European Release Only*
Mobile Sky Bike Launcher *European Release Only/Extremely Rare*
Phantom Striker
Phantom Striker Gift Set (w/ Video)
Powerjet XT-7

Powerjet XT-7 Deluxe Set (w/ Blackpak 1200) *European Release Only*
Powerjet XT-7 Gift Set (w/ Video)

Phantom Striker (Japanese Release)
Powerjet XT-7 (Japanese Release)

_________________________________________


Myself, I'm not trying to get all of these toys. Particularly the Japanese releases since they are exactly the same except for the packing. Furthermore, if you really wanted to worry about packing, there are several minor variations on the figure packing (some have a shiney logo, some not; some have non-English text, some not). I am also not a big fan of the Magnacycle and the ATR Cannon given how odd those toys were.

Myself, I'd like to have all the cool ones: Power Base, Power On Energizer, Dread Stalker, Mobile Sky Bike Launcher, Phantom Striker, Powerjet XT-7, Interlocker, and all ten figures.

I wouldn't mind getting some of the rarer ones simply due to their rarity (congrats on getting the individually packaged Blastpak 1200, btw), but... well, we'll see.

I almost had the Sky Bike Launcher once. A collector was asking 300 USD for it. I agreed, but then he flaked out on the deal. I think he also collected other toy lines and wanted to use it to trade for some ultra-rare G.I. Joe instead of for cash. Still, it probably was for the better, hopefully I can score the Sky Bike Launcher one day for much less than $300. The most I've actually ever paid for a Captain Power toy was $150 + $50 shipping for a complete Power Base in really nice condition.

There are a lot of other cool Captain Power toys too. I think all of the guns are pretty sweet, and I wouldn't mind putting together one of those Captain Power puzzles (but you outbid me!). Oh, and the weird Mexican Captain Power figures are cool too. I watched that auction but couldn't decide if I wanted them or not. If the auction had ended on payday, I probably would have fought for them.

Very nice collection. Thanks for all the pictures! Happy to see that others loved the show just like me.

I want those walkie talkies! Nice find. I am still trying to talk a seller into shipping me puzzles like the ones you have. I still haven't bought any CP guns, but I might have to start collecting those next...

I am working on some nice photos of my collection (I still need to get a friend of mine to lend me her camera and figure out lighting), but here is the complete produced figure/vehicle/playset toy line as I've photographed it today.

Dread's forces:
