Roller Skating action figures

Postby bjpalm1994 » Sun May 23, 2010 7:20 am

Hello all, I am new to the realm but have been a long time viewer. This is one of if not the best site for action figure related stuff. Ive spent many an hour on the site while at work( LOL) That being said I was wondering if anyone knew of a particular figure? I remember these figures around the mid 80s and they were your basic He-Man type figures (big muscles, semi-squatting position) except that instead of feet they had roller skates. One skate was free-wheeling but the other had the pull-back motor in it so they could roll on their own and ram into each other. The one that I had was the leader and he was white I believe had a red & blue jump suit with some kind of yellow lightning bolt insignia and a yellow removeable helmet with the same insignia. He also came with a lightning bolt accesory for a weapon. I recall there being a few other characters (a black guy and some kind of villans) but was only able to get that one. I bought them at K B toys and have been trying to find out the names of the line or pics for a while know. Just a piece of childhood. Thanks and hope to be a Realmer for a long time. bjpalm1994

That is what I was going to suggest from the description too.

Rocket Rollers! I was searching for these for so long. I didn't think anyone else knew these things.

SCORE!!!!! These are what I was talking about! I thought this guy was so cool back in the day and he fit in perfect with my MOTU figures! I was just thinking how toy companies back in they day made a figure that didn't need some big, complicated back story or a movie or cartoon to sell. All they did was make a cool figure and said if it catches on, good, if not, we'll keep trying :D Thanks so much Aesthetikz for finding these pics! \:D/
