    That would be the small toy company, that has pretty much been forgotten since then, Trendmasters. They also did a fairly good Godzilla toy line, back in the 90's.

    Ugh, puke gag and vomit, those were made by Trendmasters - who are based out of St Louis, I believe. Trendmasters recycled Voltron about 5 years ago, and also did the "Lost In Space" movie toys, Godzilla movie toys, and the Battlefield Earth movie toys. They're somewhat well-known for fairly good prototypes that transfer poorly to final products thanks to cheap tooling, poor materials, sloppy paint, a general neglect for quality control, bad assembly, and weak packaging.


    JJB, "a fairly good Godzilla toy line" is debatable IMO, but the stuff they did for the movie line was partially recycled/retooled from the ID4 line.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    No no no, I'm not talking about the craptaculer american movie Godzilla line. I mean the ones based on the old Japanese movies. Now those were pretty decent.

    Oh, gotcha, but I think - like they did with their early Voltron waves - Trendmasters only took earlier toy designs from Japan and recycled them for the US.
