Now that I think of it, ‘Remco’ would have made a great Warlord villain

I have a question, something that has actually bothered me for years now: Did anyone, anywhere, ever own these action figures? And who comes off looking worse, Deimos or Machiste?*

Back in my youth I used to be a semi-fan of Travis Morgan and his center-of-the-Earth adventures as the Warlord of Skartaris, but even I never thought it was something that could support a toy line. As best as I can figure, the Warlord toys were a half-hearted bid by DC and Remco to cash in on that sweet Masters of the Universe moolah. (Though that might’ve been half-hearted since it was coming a couple of years later into the path of the MOTU juggernaut.)

I even kinda wonder if these were remaindered MOTU figures – doesn’t that constipated muscle-man design look familiar? All in all, these toys look pretty mock-worthy and I doubt I would’ve wanted them at the time.

Of course, now I want them bad.

*Trick question – it’s a tie.

    I remember them (all save Deimos and Mikola) and they were very MOTU: the bowed legs, huge torsos, and really squat physiques. There were several near-identical lines that were neat because you could easily transpose them into your Eternian army. Shame they didn’t bother to do any female figures, especially given that “Warlord” had some kick-ass women at his back.

    Remember Golden Girl & The Guardians of The Gemstone?
