    Plaid Stallions Crystar: Crystal Warrior



    Crystar is pretty bittersweet for me as it's possibly the last action figure I ever purchased as a kid, I was in the last few weeks of being 12 and the winds of change were blowing. I still think they were neat.

    Awesome! I collected all the Marvel comics run, but I never once found any of the figures in any of the toy stores I frequented as a kid in Ontario.

    That's a good point, I found them at a Hobby store in the mall and nowhere else.

    I saw the Marvel ads for the toys constantly, but never laid eyes on the figures either. Apparently Remco's distribution was a problem.

    That is a very nice ad! And I love the tagline: "Marvel and kids, the best of friends". Ah, the more innocent days when every kid could read every Marvel comic.

    My mom bought me some from either Sears or JC Penny. I know I also saw them at Kay-bee. My Crystar figure got a lot of mileage. He worked well with the Tron and Time Traveler figures. There's something cool about translucent figures. A few years ago, I bought some Crystar comic books from ebay. Not a regular collector of comic books, but I thought the Crystar comic book series was rather lame.
    I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two.

    One of the funny take aways from this era was how many single purchase action figures i had. There were so many lines coming out, I'd buy the main guy and stop right there. It was weird.

    I remember my desk had like a Crystar, Hawkeye from Mash, Warduke and He-Man on it.

    I rarely ever had the whole line of figures from a toy series back in the day. 100% of the purchasing came from my parents. I don't ever remember buying a single toy with my own money (that's when I had any money) as a kid. There where so many toy lines going on from about 1975 to about the mid-to-late 1980s that it was virtually impossible to 'collect em all'.
