Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Holy crap -- They appropriated the mold from Kenner's Star Wars Creature Cantina set (or… someone did)!
Wow, thanks Jason. I've seen this ad a TON of times in old comics, but that photo REALLY shows the Lone Ranger line, and I'd only seen the ad.Yes, VERY reminiscent of Kenner's Star Wars figures and playset...I wonder if Gabriel was part of Kenner (I might look into that).Really cool, colorful figures.....thanks again for the images!starfoxxx
Having those figures and remembering seeing "The Legend of the Lone Ranger" in the drive-in this brings me back. The photo includes figures not part of the Lone Ranger line. All the way to the right you can see Zorro and the cowboy in front and in the back with the gray hat were part of some western toy line I vaguely remember.
