    One of the more obscure 80s toy lines and fairly scarce. I only remember seeing these at Woolworths. The gimmick, for this figure, was rotating the arm caused the heads to swap from human-ish to aquatic creatures. The figure also has pullout fins on the arms and legs. The cartoon wasn't bad it was pretty much a less cool Thundercats with sea creatures instead of cats. The real problem with the cartoon it was stuck in a syndicated cartoon block called the Comic Strip and the other cartoons were absolutely terrible.
    I loved the Tigersharks but those figures I had a problem with. Those bulky chests just didn't set well with me, so I passed on them. If they were redone with one of the other companies that are redoing vintage lines I would like them to just stay in their animal mode.

      I give them credit on trying to make the transformation gimmick work and having some sort of battle-matic action was kind of LJN's thing. But, yeah, it probably would've looked better if they just made two different figures.
      You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

        I have been on a Spectreman kick since I found some Brazilian comics from the 1980's. I got this inflatable from G Fest 2022 last year from the ONLY dealer with any Spectreman merch. Somehow there is very little interest in him over the years. Now MIRRORMAN is another story...

            I got this along with a WHOLE bunch of Filmation merch thru Heritage Auctions in the early to mid 2000's. All of that (Star trek animated series, Space Academy! ) Is from the collection of Ms. Erica Schiemer, Lou's daughter. I for one am grateful that I was there and able to score this stuff. Filmation Rules!!

              This one I got at the Chicago toy show last October (2022). This dealer has this along with other "oddities" at her tables. Being a fan of the first film and documentary, I was keen to get this. Over a year and no bad voodoo! "Whew".

                This one is weird. A Dinner tray for the Fab Four. Got it at St. Charles this summer at the summer show and it's a bit of an oddity. Not sure if you eat off it or display it. Oh Well.

                  Crystar and Moltar from Remco's Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior based on the Marvel comic of the same name.

                  crystar.jpg

                  This line combines two of my top toy loves, the sword and sorcery genre and translucent plastic. So glittery. Above average sculpts and detail for Remco. You can tell they put a lot of effort into this line.

                        Anjon's Dragon's Lair from 2002 for Toyvember.

                        dragonslair.jpg

                        With the enduring popularity of Dragon's Lair it is kind of surprising that it only got one very short-lived action figure line which was actually based on the Dragon's Lair 3D home console game. Besides the classic laser disc arcade game, there's been loads of home console video games over the years and even an 80s animated series. But not a lot of merch.

                        ​​​​​​​To be totally honest, the arcade game is actually more fun to watch than it is to play.

                          As a kid, I called these "Star Wars Monsters" because of the vinyl capes.

                            So why do I have two Deputy Dawg soakies? Cause I was stupid enough to forget that I had already bought one. The better looking one was purchased from Big John who always has the BEST vintage toys at the toy show. I was actually looking for Muskie the muskrat and the mole whose name I can't remember!?!? Love that TV show.
