    Hey all,
    Finally freed up enough shelf space to display my Shadow Strikers collection. I've got everything from the line, with the exception of one vehicle, which may or may not have been released.

    It's pretty much a rip off of MASK-one good team, one bad team, vehicle technology(Stealth armor) developed by the good guys, some stolen by the bad guys. The figures turn transparent when placed in warm water, and turn normal when put in cold water.

    Here are some pics:

    I wouldn't be suprised. :)  There's a warning on all the boxes about placing the figures in too hot of water. :D

    Pretty neat. The trasnparent covers almost look like custom dust protection shells for the toys inside.

    Wonder if you could remove the shells , cut them into sheets and use them to make a colorchanging Sideways or Punch/Counterpunch custom?

    The shells on the vehicles don't color change, just the figures. :)  I think it's the paint that's used on them that does the changing.

    I got lucky, and found most of them within a 3 week period. I just wish I could find that last vehicle(if it was released, a large plane).

    Shadow Strikers Info?

    How much did you pay for those items? I have a Shadow Strikers Deviator Missle Launcher with "Wraith" Crane MIB & Shadow Strikers Stinger Mini Jet with Dr. Viper MIB, but can't find any on ebay to compare prices with. Any info would be appreciated

    I remember those from the late 80's/early 90's! Very cool. Always liked the concept.
