    So, I recall being interested in this line when it was released. However, after my aunt purchased two of the figures for me, from Target, I realized that I wasn’t so interested in the line. I can’t explain why. I can only say that they fell flat for me. Because of that, I had no further interest in any of the line.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    I still have my Calibos (with a tail that was repaired by my dad when I was just a wee lad).
    I recall seeing these guys in the stores and in the catalogs. Great fit with Star Wars and even GI Joe. Thanks for the overview!

    One of my most beloved toy lines, from one of my favorite films. I have it all and wanted more, more, more. No Medusa is criminal, and Zeus & Bubo would have been nice.

    Just got this guy off of ebay and immediately had to fix his tunic to be screen accurate. I have all of the figures from this line now.

    Indeed a crime to not have a Medusa!
    Those customs are off the hook - the Medusa Lair from a Well of Souls (I think) is crazy awesome!

    the repurposed heads are fantastic as well. White hair Perseus with a beard as Zeus is inspired.
