Pod Stallions 34: Disappointing Merchandise

I read on a Star Trek message board the reason Ertl got the license to make action figures for Star Trek III was because at the time they were owned by AMT, the company that had the license to made Star Trek model kits, so it was just a matter of wheeling and dealing between AMT/Ertl and Paramount.

In the 80's there was a pretty awesome action figure line called "Crystar" which sadly never succeeded because it never got a cartoon (though it did get a good Marvel comics limited series).

but wait! Did jason actually go an entire episode without lighting up?
