Recently I had been talking with
about the old Talespin action figures. I was a big fan of the show back in the day. I had thought that action figures for the show would be sweet. Then, one sunny day in... 199something, I'm in Childrens Palace and I'm suddenly face to face with a wall of Talespin action figures. So I bought the crap out of them... and a few Darkwing Duck figures too.
As cool as the things were ( although a few were kinda funky ), they just didn't sell well enough to warrant a second series of action figures. Fans of the figures will prolly recall that Wildcat, Mad Dog and Gibber appeared on the backs of the packaging but never made it to retail ( or, if they did, they're the rarest of the rare ). I had read that along with those 3, that Shere Khan, Dunder and Hacksaw were also supposed to be in the works. Never happened though and I haven't seen any info on their existence until today. I found these during a Google search.
Just place-holding illustrations but it's the most concrete info I've yet to see. I've always dug the air pirates and having the other 3 would've been so sweet, Hacksaw especially.... well, and Mad Dog. Oh well, one can dream.
During the art school years, Don Karnage's plane made it into a still life for my oil painting class.
So, there ya go.
