That's how I was too. Until now. Just picked up a small collection of V stuff that had a boxed complete figure, several sets of trading cards, and a couple life sized weapons. Pretty cool, loved the shows.Always wanted the visitor ljn doll. Never find it loose and complete, and boxed ones are out of control when i am looking to buy.
V was allowed to make toys, You are thinking of Spaceballs. V had a 12" figure released, but nothing else here in the USAUnfortunately V is a product of not being allowed to produce the toys, something about an agreement with Lucasfilm?
if the license were used today likeness rights could make this prohibited. Would love to see V solders at the very least.
Oil shortage in the 70s made a lot of plastics companies hurt badly. Look at the mego heads from that time...they all turned zombie gray.I was watching random toy videos about 80's toys and I think one of the reasons was also the company was in financial trouble. Somethng else of interest was the reason figures went down to 4". The cost of oil went up dramatically so it was cheaper to shrink down the toys. I think I heard that in a Micronauts video.
