    I can't for the life of me remember the name of the line. They weren't an A-list toy line like Power Rangers, but were easy to find when they were out.

    I think they were either robots, or people in armor, and came with a crap load of accessories, guns, etc. I had a white figure and I think he had armor and other stuff that you can put away in a little suitcase. Anybody know what I'm talking about?

    I remember getting one for Christmas in the 90's. I think they were widespread across North America.

    If it wasn't for the suitcases I'd guess Ronin Warriors, that's what I always think with armored action figures with tons of accessories.

    I'm pretty sure they weren't based on a game (or a tv show), but I vaguely remember that you could get them at a Toys R Us or a Meijer.

    But yeah, the most memorable thing was that it was a base figure, and then a CRAP load of accessories (armor, handguns, rifles) with a suitcase, and I think they were the same scale as the 90's power ranger figures (and similar articulation). It had a really futuristic aesthetic too.

    Someone has to know! It's been bugging me for the longest time! :banghead:

    The suitcase and guns just makes me think Sigma 6 but that wasn't a 90s line... being the scale of the 90s Power Rangers isn't helping that image in my head.

    Did a little digging, it's called ZAP Police Power Force, man these toys were the shiznit back in their heyday! I had Blazord.

    Although this archive said that they came out in 1988, I CLEARLY remember they were available when Power Rangers was at it's peak.
