    I loved this show as a kid, watching it now I'm a little surprised by how dark some of the subject matter was, but I think that was some of the appeal for me as well.
    I remember being all about the Inhumanoids, Redwoods, and Granites from the toyline but hated the toys for Earth Corps, it just seemed silly to me to see that tiny human head poking out of those bulky suits.
    This is one of those lines I always wished Hasbro would revamp and update. A 3.75" line for the humans (remold some G.I Joes if they wanted to cut corners), 6" for the Redwoods, Granites and Magnecore, and 12" for the Inhumanoids themselves.

    I'm really enjoying watching the cartoon right now.

    I actually like those bulky battlesuits. These are unique and I'm glad they didn't follow the Gijoe design.

    I liked the design of the suits and the idea of removing the helmet, but those tiny tiny heads never looked right to me. At the time I'd also been spoiled by the articulation Sectaurs had and was disappointed I couldn't get Herc Armstrong into some better poses.
    I stumbled across some amazing customs of the Earth Corps (made by Boskos toys I think?) a few years ago, man I would have loved to gotten my hands on these beauts.

    Tendril is between $45.00 and $65.00. Not so bad.

    I remember as a kid my brothers having the purple one, the yellow one, some sort of truck of theirs and the BIG Skeleton monster along with a bunch of the smaller elemental monsters. As of now all I have left are the the smaller monsters (Rock, Tree and Lava) but I remember loving the crap out of the big boney one...even if he didn't have a head by the time I got him.

    I didn't have a chance to see the show many times as a kid, but I remember a friend having D'compose and Tendril. I always wanted a Tendril of my own. I don't know what I would do with it now, though.

    I went on Youtube and watched the first episode just a few weeks ago. I might have to track down the rest of the series some time. Is the rest of the cartoon worth watching?

    I loved this show. It was really very dark for a kids show. I remember watching this and having a feeling of complete hopelessness for the good guys,

    No, the Jaegers look like the suits.

    Rik Alvarez was just being interviewed on the Cybercast and he mentioned they worked on a possible reboot of Inhumanoids at Hasbro. They changed the name to Primordia becuase Marvel asked them.. Inhumanoids was too close to Inhumans!

    These customs had to have used Iron Monger as the base figure. Look great though.

    I really liked the cartoon, and I loved the toys. I’ve been debating trying to collect the entire toy line since it is so small.

    I hope the property gets resurrected in some way...

    Why does Inhumanoids cost so much? My boyfriend asked me to track down D'Compose and whoa! He's crazy expensive!
