Classic (?) Toy of the Day!

So, the next few days, I'll be showing you pics of the Remco Mighty Crusaders toy line, which came out (very briefly) in the 1980s, when Archie had briefly revived their super-heroes under the Red Circle imprint.

As you can see from this first figure (the Brain Emperor, the Crusaders' arch-foe... a character that works for me on every level except the name... well, and maybe the costume), there wasn't much articulation on these. I think they were about the size of most modern action figures, but perhaps they were more onscale with the He-Man line from Mattel (the Warlord toys from Remco had this same problem).

The figures all came with a shield that had a built-in whistle.

  1. IIRC these were about the size of the Super Powers figures.
