Buy PowerLords or we'll shoot you

I was too old for the Power Lords when they came out but I remember kind of digging their design, they certainly weren't as child friendly as other action figure lines at the time and that appealed to my newly discovered cynicism.

I don't remember the characters in this ad from Toyfair 1984 and go figure, they seem like they're kind of expensive and probably saw a smaller release. Why are those toys always the prettiest?

Don't forget to join our new facebook group.

Don't remember ever seeing those figures. I'm guessing He-Man was dominating toy shelves by then

Also, probably couldn't get away with that ad copy today.

YIN's right. But if we're going there, even He-Man would get in trouble for promoting edged weapons and feminism/ "gamer-gate" complaints about the costume/ body-types for Teela, Evil Lyn, and the Sorceress.

These days, someone would probably find something offensive about Orko.

Orko, eh? Maybe. Not sure how much political sway floating blue elves have these days.

I had one of these, a blue alien, I think. I remember the comic book, but have never read an issue.
