LJN Road Stars


Which one would you go for as a kid? I'd be torn between Captain America and the Eagle from Space:1999.

Also, I wanna meet the kid who saw this display and went "Oh Wow, the Waltons truck!"

Oh I have Archie's jalopy. Didn't know it came from this toy line. That's cool. As for which ones I'd like to have gotten I'd go with the two Emergency trucks. One of my all time favorite TV shows.

I'd choose- The flintsones [car], captain America, SWAT, scooby doo's van, and space 1999.

I had a few of these. I liked the Emergency 51 truck the best. I was obsessed with that show as a kid.

How come they never made Fred Sanford's truck? THAT's what I want!

They used the Space 1999 Dinky Eagle as placeholder photo.

I'm going with that freaky-deaky Flash Gordon car.Can't say no to a whale on wheels!

I had the two Emergency! vehicles. Man, I loved that little Squad 51 truck; it was like a character itself. And I may have had that SWAT truck.

The Eagle is a no-brainer. No idea what makes that mustachioed fish a "Flash Gordon" vehicle. The Hogan's Heroes car doesn't really work without swastikas, but I guess that would've been a hard sell even in the 70s. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention, but I think this is the only piece of Hogan merchandise I've ever seen?

Had most of these. The Flash Gordon "car" was the worst. It had metal wheels on a cheap axle that basically was only good for a couple "runs" before it became irreversibly damaged.

These were some of my favorite toys when I was a kid! Thanks for posting this ad!

Cool collection. Where did the design for the Captain America vehicle come from?

The fire and police trucks appear to have about one inch of ground clearance. I guess you are out of luck if there any speed bumps near your home.

Does anybody else find it weird that LJN made, in essence, a German WWII staff car for Hogan's Heroes in this line?
