Toy Line: Blackstar Fantasy Figures
Sculpt Names: Overlord & Palace Guard
Color: Red & Green
Collector's Note: Here we have some 1984 Blackstar mini figures. How cool are they? They stand 2.5" tall, are made of a cheap, flexible plastic, and are trademarked Hong Kong © 1984 Filmation Assoc. I'm not sure in which countries these were available. They came in a bag with a header card, and were called Blackstar Fantasy Figures. A little play mat was included, so these may have been intended to be pieces for a board game. There were twelve sculpts in total, which came in 5 colors: blue, red, yellow, orange, and green. You can see pics of the packaging at the Blackstar section of Nijirain.com.
As you can see, it's not the tightest of sculpting, and the poses are pretty underwhelming. However, they are mono-colored, Blackstar, mini figures after all and therefore super cool.
If/when I get my hands on more of these, I'll create a full entry for them. Here's an MXD entry for the Blackstar action figure line in the meantime.
