About Tonka Rock Lords Action Figure Toys

Rock Lords are an offshoot from the GoBots toy line.  Rock Lords was released in 1986. They are transforming powerful rocks.  Consisting of several sub-lines:  basic, Narlies, Jewel, Fossil, Shock Rocks, and vehicles.  Like GoBots the Rock Lords were licensed from Bandai’s Machine Robo line of toys. Divided into two factions the good guys led by Boulder and bad guys led by Magmar. While successful, like their cousin GoBots they only lasted for three series.  Do I have the Stone Head playset?  Sadly no.

Bio: I’m the founder and owner of Wheeljack’s Lab. My vision has always been to reunite customers with their favorite childhood toys, triggering fond memories and reigniting their imaginations. Every day I work in the “lab” where it’s Christmas 365 days a year; scouring the internet – like we did the Sears Catalog of yesteryear – for the next great treasure, awaiting the arrival of the postman as if he was Santa Claus himself and helping collectors worldwide with their own versions of Christmas. Every day as a vintage toy buyer is an absolute joy.
