In the 1960s, Mattel had a great deal of success with their "Major Matt Mason" line of toys, but when Neal Armstrong stepped on the moon and discovered nothing, interest in space toys hit new lows.
Mattel logically thought to spin the concept off to a more earth bound concept and created "The Sea Devils" underwater explorers featuring the same bendable body style as Matt had. Leading the expedition was now Commander Chuck Carter and his sidekick Rock Riley as they explored the ocean's depths.
Sea Devils is something I've wanted to feature on PS, mostly because I find it an awesome line of toys and two, it just fell flat on the market and are really hard to find in the secondary market. It's a shame as they are a great start to what would become a wonderful decade of toys.
