    Plaid Stallions The Lost Dark Crystal Toys





    This toy trade ad from Spring 1982 showed a rather ambitious merchandise campaign for the Dark Crystal including Hasbro (actually their subsidiary Aviva) tapped for an action figure line.


    Like many Science Fiction and fantasy properties of the early 1980s, like Krull, V and the Last Star Fighter the action figures got left on the run way.

    How buyers waffled on such a property yet bought Dune action figures with both hands i'll never clearly understand.

    "Sold well" in the fact that retail orders merited production. I believe the toy line, like the movie was a dud.

    It blows my mind that they tried marketing 'Dune' to kids. Even though I strangely liked the movie when I saw it as a kid, none of the characters were particularly appealing enough to make the successful cross-over into an endearing action figure. I bet most kids that saw it didn't understand the movie and had nightmares.
