    Thinking about years gone by, there have been a lot of cool toy ideas that have not been able to stand the same teat of time as The Transformers and recently there has been a lot of re-makes (He Man, TMNT), so what would you do if you had the power?

    Mine would be MASK.
    That was close third to being my fav toy line as a kid. Such a cool concept; good figures, good vehicles, neat-o masks.

    Any others?

    Probably Shogun Warriors/Godaikins.

    I love Mask as well. I still have my Matt Tracker, Scott, and T-bob.

    Does anybody remember C.O.P.S and crooks. It looked like such a kick ass toy line, but I've never got one.:redface2:

    I'm still pretty amazed Thundercats didn't have a redo of it's toyline since it seems to be more popular than MOTU. Nonetheless I would pick Silverhawks over any of 'em because damn I'd kill for a new Miraj.

    Brave. Or a toyline like it.
    So long as there is a Super Guardion or Pegasus Saber "upgrade" gestalt in there - one who is a complete robot alone, but who can add in a fourth guy to make a new, bigger, powered up robot.

    Otherwise, how about some new Centurions?

    Dude, the cartoon was badass. Fighting crime in a future time!

    I could only find a couple figures for some reason. I had the big boss guy and his dumbass sidekick with the blue jacket. They had tons of articulation and came with cap guns. I always wanted the dude with the machine gun stashed in his chest.

    I'd have to go with MASK or Centaurions. Maybe Starcom. They were all pretty sweet.

    Buttons McBoomBoom? Yeah he was cool..

    Hard to say what my pick would be. So many good choices.. Probably a ML articulation style of Thundercats. I saw a custom figure in Toyfare of Panthro made from a ML. Was pretty cool. I'd love to see a line of Thundercats like thay. Thunder Thunder Thundercats HOOOOOO!!

    That or a modernization of MASK..

    COPS, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, and a few others round out the rest..

    Starcom had some really interesting toys, and a fairly mature cartoon to match.

    M.A.S.K. had some very clever designs too, but Kenner just seemed to take their eyes of the ball; The racing themed toys were probably the best, but the racing themed cartoons tanked.

    Then they rolled out Split Seconds (Weakest year of M.A.S.K. and scrubbed the cartoon) ... little wonder the line just faded away.


    Centurions had potential, but to me the toys just seemed like blocky, and a bit crude.

    I'd say Jem and the Holograms; I can't believe Hasbro hasn't tried already, but I guess it's just not In Demand enough for their liking... Why else wouldn't they get around to giving us Season Three Part Two.


    Incidentally... Nah; save it for another time. ML articulated Jem and the Holograms dolls would so rock; they could even include characters that didn't make the cut the first go round.

    Go-bots. Hasbro has use of the name (but is using it for their playskool TFs), they obviously have a good reputation for making transforming toy robots, and they own what would be the only real competition for it (in the states, anyways). Besides- as recently as Armada, they even had rights to the name Leader-1!
