Failed Toy Lines From The 1980s

The 80s were a heyday for licensed toys, and kids were finally able to actually have some action with their action figures.

Toy series that featured some kind of fighting element were generally the most popular, so companies released many different kinds of combat-ready characters in order to cash in on the trend.

But one group of fighters failed to make kids hungry enough to collect them all- The Food Fighters, a delicious idea that kids just couldn’t stomach.

And then there were those brash toy lines that dared to come out without their own cartoon series, which caused kids to wonder "Who the heck does this Crystar, Crystal Warrior think he is, He-Man or sumpin'?!"
