Still trying to find images of "Cyborg", "Mutant" and "Android".
Like GI Joe but sci-fi. You could remove their arms/legs and replace them with big guns, tank tracks and stuff.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

Does anyone remember those old 'spyhunter' games from the 80s? They werent' a video game, but they looked like the front half of a little porsche, and htey had a little wheel and shifter, and on the dashboard it had a panel that showed the car, and it would use batteries to light up the game. It wasn't even LCD. It had LEDs for a tachometer, and it was very similar to spyhunte, a top down viewpont, and you drove around and had to evade obstacles. Anybody know what that thing was called?

I know exactly what you are talking about. I had one as a little kid. Too bad I have no idea what it was called.

OK, I'm trying to remember the name of the toy (Star Command? Star something, I don't remember.) It was the coolest toys I'd ever got to play with. I'll try to describe them.

You could get tons of different vehicles for them. But my favorite was the dropship and cargo holder. All of them had little motors and stuff and all the parts moved by themsleves! The cargo ship would pick up the box container all by itself, swing it towards the rear of the ship, then drop it, and swing the arm back into place.

The figures were kinda small (about half the height of a G.I. Joe), but they had magnets on their feet! They could walk around on the outside of the hulls of the ships (or in the drop ship, you stuck like 6 dudes in there and the ship would unload the box all by itself.)

They had little guns and space helmets with hoses running around on the suites.

Most of the ships and vehicles were dicast metal so you could stick your guys on them like they were space walking. I must've spent hours making little battle scenes on the refridgerator.

Anyone remember the name?!


Edit: OMG! I found them! StarCom! Badass!

Check out the figures and vehicles.
