    Those prototypes are really amazing.

    I liked The Last Star Fighter movie too, liked just about anything that was science-fiction.

    An early experiment in CGI. At the time, I preferred all spaceships as models in movies, but now, looking back, it is a very fun time capsule with an unforgettable look. It is an all-around enjoyable film.

    P.S.

    There may have not been figures to buy, but I didn't miss out completely on having something to accompany the movie when it was out, I had Last Star Fighter Game by FASA. It was a small boxed game. It didn't have a traditional board, but it was a table-top game, with cardboard counters. And it had a nice picture box. I think their Star Trek game of that size was for Star Trek III: The Search For Spock.

    I loved this movie when it came out. I was just about the age where I stopped buying toys so I don't know if I would've bought these had they come out, but it's really cool to see them now! I love the fact that stuff like this still surfaces all these years later.

    I agree, Funko or Super 7!

    All I truly remember about "The Last Starfighter" is Catherine Mary Stewart.

    ^ What those two said.

    Neat find, of course. I do remember the movie. I don’t recall being too interested in it. Was it a popular enough movie to support an action figure line? That’s a sincere question, since I don’t remember.

    I don't think they would have sold well to be honest. The film wasn't a huge hit, although it's fondly remembered, and was a landmark in CGI effects. Time has been kind to it, but 1984 saw interest waning in space figures of this scale.

    ^ Gotcha. Thanks.

    As I said, I certainly remember it well, but I didn’t find it very exciting. I mean that I didn’t want to go home and play The Last Star Fighter.
