Sell Battlestar Galactica Collectibles

Battlestar Galactica Mattel 1978 Actions Figures

After the successful TV series, Mattel launched the toy line. Mattel’s original line of Battlestar Galactica action figures were released in 1978. The toys sold very quickly as the missile-launching toys were popular. Due to the death of a young boy, the toys were redesigned not to fire missiles; therefore, there are two versions of all the vehicles. One version fires missiles and the other does not fire. The ones that fire are worth significantly more.

Inhumanoids was a popular animated TV series in which Hasbro produced a toy line to follow in 1986. Inhumanoids was a series of ‘scientist action figures’ that had “glow in the light” features. Metlar, Tendril, and D’Compose were some of the popular figures in this series.

Sell Tron Action Figures

Tron Tyco Action Figures

After the production of the Disney classic sci-fi movie, Tron, Tomy went on to produce the toys and action figures in 1982. While a small toy line, they are very well made and designed to capture the essence of the movie. The movie didn’t do as well as expected, so only one series was released.


Sell Lord of the Rings Collectibles

Lord of the Rings Knickerbocker Action Figures

In 1978 Lord of the Rings was released. Toymaker, Knickerbocker produced the toys and action figures. The line consisted of six figures and two horses: Aragorn, Frodo, and his Steed, Samwise, Gandalf, Ringwraith and his Steed, and Gollum. Very nicely done toys, albeit a very small line.

Sell Dune Action Figures

Dune LJN 1984 Actions Figure

Dune the epic science fiction film was released in 1984. The line of the Dune action figures were produced in 1984 as well by LJN. The original film did not do well and neither did the toys. The toys were for sale for years and couldn’t be given away, which is unfortunate given they were well made.

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!
