Toys Czarn’t Us September 19, 2010Posted by John D. Moore in Merchandise.
“Nerd news” site ToplessRobot posted last year a list of “The 10 Most Tragically Unreleased Action Figure Lines.” Among them were these, the stuff of my dreams, circa 1992: a large expansion of the Darkwing Duck toy line, including Negaduck, Gizmoduck, Quackerjack, the Liquidator, Morgana (!), and even SHUSH personnel. Apparently, Playmates was all but ready to roll on these. Who knows why the plug got pulled, but pulled it was.
Is it just me, or does Liquey look a little terrifying?
Almost 20 years on, all we can do is sigh wistfully for what never was to be. It’s also making me wish I’d gotten around to getting that second Darkwing figure to paint in Negs’s colors.
