Would be interested in 8" scale figures of Crockett, Tubbs, Zito, Switek, Gina, Trudy, Castillian(SP? Edward James Olmos' Character), and Calderone. I understand the effort and cost that would involved in getting the okay to use the cast members' likenesses and so forth, but it would still be great. Even back in the 80's I had always hoped for a 3 3/4" action figure line(even with the O-rings) despite the fact that this was an adult show which aired in the 10PM time slot.

Mezco tested the waters for Miami Vice and the line only got Crockett and Tubbs out there.

The Mezco figures IMO were not that nice and definitely far from Mego style. I can understand why the line only got Crockett and Tubbs.

Kids in Brazil got a couple of boats with figures which looked nothing like Crockett and Tubbs, IIRC. The Mezco figures looked like animated characters. Can imagine what an animated MV series would've been like. Saturday morning MV for kids and Friday night MV for adults. That actually would've been kind of cool. Use the same Jan Hammer opening theme for both.

Didn't say they were Mego style, just that a line was tried and it didn't do well. I honestly don't think a Mego style line would fare any better.
