OK, we're up to page 12 of the Heroes World Catalog #1...
As you can see, pages 12 and 13 cover Kenner's Star Wars action figure line... and since I'm pretty sure there's plenty of Star Wars collector sites out there (plus there's just too many figures in that line to save pix of), I'll just let you know you can click the images to see each page in more detail!
A bit larger image for page 14, which starts the Battlestar Galactica coverage... and here's some photos of the Mattel action figure line!
You'll note that the Viper and other vehicles are a completely different scale than the figures are... in fact, those came with their own mini-figures!
And there were larger figures, too! So, you had tiny figures (about two inches or so tall) that had vehicles, larger figures (about the size of the Star Wars line) with no figures at all, and then the two larger figures (that had nothing else to go with them).
While the line is highly collectible today, I can't help but think it would've been more popular originally if there were Vipers to scale with the figure line!
It would've helped, too, if the vehicles (other than the Viper and Cylon Raider) in this line were actually vehicles from the show, eh?
This was a better look at the Imperius Leader than I think we ever got on the show itself!
Just to break up the pictures, here's page 15, which has some of the worst art I've ever seen!
Oh, I didn't even realize I had the Galactica bubbles!
Oh, here's another Mattel Galactica item that's not to scale with the rest of the line!
I wouldn't be at all surprised if all the current Galactica items are more successful than the original line was... although there were a lot of licensees aside from Mattel!
Next time, the Heroes' World catalog starts out with... The Micronauts!
