   Oh Internet, is there anything that I can remember that you can’t locate? I was thinking back on an eraser set I had back when I was 10 (1980). Lo and behold I found them. Not only did I find them, I also found this awesome blog post that,is very informative, about them. The only thing I had to go on was the name on my favorite piece… HORTA. I have fond memories about these erasers. They were toys that were acceptable in the classroom, so it was as if I was getting away with something 😉

    Looking at them now, I am more drawn in by the blue Cyclops Robot.

Mego, arguably the biggest line of characters, didn’t offer a singular voice. Adventure Team did that, and more. Head over to Plaid Stallions to check out the great toys from years gone by.

   I read this article earlier today, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Did you know about Ideal’s small toy line representing female superheroes of DC? I didn’t! Really neat stuff. Anyhow, it gives me something else to look for out in the wild, or at second hand shops.

MOONBASE CENTRAL: FOCUS ON S.T.A.R. TEAM


   Being someone who’s extremely fond of the Zeroid  robot  range by Ideal Toys, which appeared in 1968, it’s not  surprising that I also have a soft spot for some of Ideal’s S.T.A.R. Team action figures.
