Did any of you have the V 12 inch action figure produced by LJN from 1984? Also anyone remember that LJN was going to make smaller scale figures. I think it was 4.5 inche scale. Some of the concept/prototype toys were seen in the series being played with by character Sean Donovan.

I would of loved to have these in the 4.5 inch scale or even 3 3/4 inch scale. Oh what could of been. Another cool toy line that ended up being not produced :( Any thoughts? Would you want these made today?

Here is a link of the 4.5 inch scale action figure line in the LJN 1984 catalog. Scroll down to post 13 to see the pic.

I remember seeing a 12" Visitor figure advertisted in the sci-fi fanzine Starlog back in the day, but I never collected them.

In the TV movies, they show Donovan's son's friend playing with what looked like 3-3/4" scale Visitor shuttles and figures, but that scene was probably poking fun at the Star Wars merchandising machine at the time.
