    In the 90's I was addicted to this toy line something fierce. I would have HUGE dioramas set up in my bedroom as a kid. The line was called Mega Force. For the last few years I could not remember the name, just vague descriptions. Then today at work I decided to take up the search again, and then I came across a website that was a tremendous help! HERE ! Now I will be on the hunt for this comlete set(and then some). I plan on troop building the heck out of them. Me, my dad, and friends would stage massive battles in my backyard and basement. I know I had dozens of these toys. I am so excited. As soon as I get a decent amount I will take some pictures of my diorama/display that I set up. This is HUGE for me. I loved these things. I remember I had The Goliath and a bunch of the tanks and Vtol's set up in an battle formation. I used foam pieces with fauz grass and sand blued to it with fake trees. THIS is how war toys should be done. and the amount of detail they had was insane. far ahead of its time.


    Anyone else out their dig these things? have any? chime in! and if you have any or come across any, let me know and I may take them off your hands for the right price!

    I had some... and recently saw them after searching back through my stuff for TF's.

    I had stuff like the Ramfist, Stratofortress, Strikemaster, Thunderwolf, Crossbolt, and a few of the smaller vehicles...

    They played well with my military Micromachines.

    Send me a reminder PM about this so I can remember who it was that was interested in them when I get around to going back through more childhood toys!

    wow, those bring back memories. I had a few but not many which were cool since like you said, you can build a whole army of them.Unfortunately I tossed them out through out the years.

    Kronos, what ever happen to yours since you and your family were really into them?

    I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS! I have spent YEARS myself trying to figure out what that line was! Like an idiot I threw them all out, and lost the only picture I had for refrence. This is such a crazy coincidence.

    Looking through that entire site, I had the Goliath, Thorhammer, Backlash, Stratofortress, Trident, Battle Tanks w/bridge, Fighter Bombers, and Vtols. The Goliath was a BEAST.

    Thanks for the memories!

    Were these like Micro Machines, or were they the size of Matchboxes. If they were the size of Micro Machines I know my younger brothers used to collect these. They may still have some packed away in our parents attic. :p

    Mine were lost in a fire in 1992! They were somewhat comparable to micro machines, but much cooler IMHO!

    From what I have seen on Ebay, the only person that has any for sale is someone in Australia. And they are MIB/MISB and pricy!

    Well I meant in overall size because I remember my brothers having these types of toys. However, I don't remember the packaging. I just remember playing with the toys, and most of the pics from that site look like those toys. Like I said above they may still have them packed away in our parents attic because my parents saved all of our toys.

    I remember these - I had all of them except for the Backlash. They battled fairly well with TF Micromasters. I got rid of most except for a few I don't plan to part with. I'd still like to get the Backlash some day.

    Wow! That really isn't a fun Ebay search. Look at this:

    mega force -drive -thunder -bloks -man -nintendo -blocks -bracket -exo -atari -marvel -rangers

    And I'm still getting a ton of crap that's not related.

    I tried megaforce but not "mega force"

    Either way the results suck! Tons of unrelated crap.

    Like Cataclizm, never heard of them, but if they were new now, I'd buy them.

    I remember a friend having these back in like...I don't know, my fifth or sixth grade year. Loved playing with 'em, especially the Crossbolt.

    The size and variety kinda remind me of the later War Planets series.
