UK action figures ad

Post by Mark Lungo » Sun Jun 09, 2019 5:59 am

Much obliged to Vintage Toy Advertiser, who posted this on their Twitter feed. Two things to note:

1. The ad has better, longer character descriptions than the cheap little stickers on the toy packages.

2. The headline is sadly inaccurate, since the figures weren't available in the country where it all started. :o

Thanks!

I found it funny that Zach is riding "Mel" and Doc is riding "Z-100" (the series has those horses switched) and I don't have enough knowledge to say if, perhaps, the labels are simply wrong (I can't really tell one shiny horse from the other).

Neither can I--probably because (as I've noted before) the horses are all recycled from Galoob's Golden Girl line, despite the existence of show-accurate prototypes.
