Another company to mention is Remco. Their 3 3/4 Universal monster figures were absolutely beautiful. The details in the sculpting especially the Creature and the Mummy were better than either company IMO.

"The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow...How did it come to this?"
I think the BSG figures would have sold better had they had ships to go along with them plus if they made an Apollo figure. I remember all my friends and I had tons of the Buck Rogers stuff and the ships my fav and I still have is the land rover.
I was Really hoping Hasbro would have gotten in more with the BSG licence when they had it in stead of making just tiny die cast ships

Walked out this morning, don't believe what I saw... Hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore
Seems i'm not alone at being alone... Hundred billion castaways, looking for a home...
The blank figures are an awesome idea. There were companies back in the 90's who did garage kit versions and they were fantastic for quickie customs.
As for the classic lines; I think Star Wars won just 'cos it was Star Wars. The movie made such a huge impact on EVERYBODY they could have released just about anything and it'd sell. Case in point; the original action figure product was a coupn so's you could order them. (And people complain about Matty Collector today!) The Mego stuff was just as good, but it was the tie-in that sold the product.
