    Nice to see it here. I have some CA items, and have a fondness for the concept, and of course getting to work on the Castaway toys packaging didn't hurt either!

    Cool!

    I dig Captain Action. Don't have any original pieces, but I have picked up quite a few figures and costumes from the Playing Mantis and Round 2 incarnations of Captain Action.

    I am very proud to have a Castaway Captain Action and Dr. Eville in my collection. I got them because the were "Mego-like" and for me, they bridged the gap between Mego and CA. The Castaway Toys version was what got me interested in the line because CA wasn't even on my radar prior to that.

    I liked that crossover aspect with CAW, too. But it was Playing Mantis that really grabbed me, I still like those.

    I'd like to own a vintage CA Aquaman someday, Ideal did a good job on him.
    WANTED: Dick Grayson SI trousers; gray AJ Mustang horse; vintage RC Batman (Bruce Wayne) head; minty Wolfman tights; mint Black Knight sword; minty Launcelot boots; Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Lion Rock Franky squared boots; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes, BBP TZ Burgess Meredith glasses.

  6. Happy to see that Captain Action fans have another home here. There are a lot of crossover fans as we found out when we had put out a few Mego style figures via Castaway Toys a few years back. We'll be sure to post any new CA news here as well as on our Facebook pages.
    Best,

    I dig Cpt Action too. I got into the line when I snagged an auction lot of several uniforms and accessories. then I was hooked. I have only an original Dr Evil body, but have original Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Flash Gordon, the Phantom, Buck Rogers and Captain America costumes, set up on Playing Mantis bodies. I am starting to downsize though so will be listing them on ebay in the coming months

    ^Completely agree about Aquaman. The CA version is every bit (if not more so?) as fascinating as Mego including Aquaman in an initial release of an action figure line.

    A (more or less ) minor character benefited from timing.......TWICE!!!

    I FREAKING LOVE THAT HAPPENED!!!

    ME TOO!! lol Praise be to Filmation.

    I love how Ideal did Aquaman's tunic, with the copper-colored cross-hatched "scales."
