These look great. Quite a diverse range there from what looks like articulated detailed figs, non-articulated solid figs, cloth and vinyl capes, to those really cool looking clear figures. Some of it has a bit of a MOTU look too cheers Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Paul - I am really glad you like them Very Happy It is a very diverse line and not one of the easiest to locate all the correct accessories . I have the basic figure line pretty well complete - think all I am missing is a Crystal Castle playset and seems like there are a couple different "Shatterpult" Accessories .

here is a link to a cool site that has a little more info and pics to look at if anyones interested : http://www.action-figures.ca/crystar.htm

I missed this thread somewhere along the way. I had Crystar when I was a kid. Just that one figure. I've always had a soft spot for them since. I've gone over Ebay many times looking for Crystar figures and just never can pull the trigger. I may have to just do it soon.

really glad you like them Very Happy It took me a few years to put togeather what I have and its still not a complete set (close though) . If your patient you should be able to get everything fairly inexpensive . The toughest piece to get is the Crystal Dragon - and thats just mainly because the wings are really fragile where they clip on to the body .

Hey James

When I was browsing at my local toy store yesterday afternoon. I saw a couple of MOC Crystar pieces hanging on the wall.
Let me know if you want me to take some pictures and find out the prices.

Thank you for the very cool offer Clint but I don't collect carded stuff (for any vintage line) - I barely have enough room in my house for my loose collections lol!

My collecting is very compulsive - if I had one MOC I would have to have them all MOC :cool laugh:


BTW Though - if you ever come across any loose Knickerbocker Lord of the Rings figures or accessories I would gladly buy them cheers

this is all I have : http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t6120-does-anyone-else-collect-knickerbocker-s-1979-lord-of-the-rings-figures?highlight=knickerbocker

I owe a another huge THANK YOU to Clint for giving me these awesome Crystar figures cheers :clap: cheers










As I mentioned earlier in the thread I don't collect MOC figures normally (due to space and cost) but I am extremely happy to add these to my collection celebrate

I will never get rid of them and it is so cool to have a couple MOC figures to display bow
