|Does anyone remember these lines by Bluebird Toys?
Never had MANTA FORCE as a kid, but having read about the fun people had with it I bought the MANTA ship and RED VENOM a few years back...the spring fire cannons on these things are....LETHAL.
I did have 2 ZERO HOUR sets-the 27 figure pack of B.A.D. BRIGADE soldiers and the MATTEL repackaged CODE ZERO version of their bus that became an attack vehicle. I'd liked to have had more as a kid....tempted by some of it now too....depends on prices as I would want to spend too much at all.
Warriors of Kerrang was an odd one-saw it in the shops in the 1990s I think, it had good and evil Knights that were on another world, humans and aliens I think. 3 3/4 size, bending knees and Palitoy Action Force style neck, shoulder joints but had 4 buttons on their chests that could allow for limbs to come off and you could say attach the torso/arms/head to a hover vehicle thing which had molded legs on it to appear like he was on a steed of some sort, the arms could be changed with other arms packed in that had molded weaponry in the hand. The illustrations on the cards were nice, in that lovely felt tip style Bluebird used on ZERO HOUR....
Does anyone have catalogue scans of Zero Hour and Warriors of Kerrang?
It'd cheer me up seeing it at the moment with the impending funeral on Friday. Thanks.
A toy ahead of its time
