Commericals : Shogun Warriors, Battlestar Galactica, Micronauts and more!

It's movie day today! Surfing YouTube last night and I found this great block 70's Toy Commercials that weren't really marked as such, this series features Shogun Warriors, Micronauts and Suckerman!

This second block of commercials features the Mattel Battlestar Galactica Action Figures, Viper Launch Station, More Micronauts and Mego World's Greatest Superheroes.

I get asked a lot about the Micronauts, usually I do Micro Stuff at the Museum Blog but I thought I'd post a picture of the Aliens here, my favourite characters.

Might as well point out links for the stuff in the commercials above, you could lose a whole day in these sites:

Battlestar Galactica: The PS site has the 1979 Mattel Catalog but also check out the Battlestar pages at the 3 3/4" Archive

Micronauts: Megomuseum has a section but also check out Innerspace Online for a complete perspective.

Mego Superheroes: The galleries at Megomuseum are unmatched and there is also the book World's Greatest Toys that everyone should own.

Shogun Warriors: Wildtoys has a great page and we've got pages from the 1979 catalog.

That was great! I've never seen most of those commercials, including that first WGSH commercial. It's a little surprising they included Shazam and Falcon, but not Spider-Man or Captain America. Nice! Also cool that the commercials are such high quality. Great find, Brian.
