Hi folks,
Pictures of my Centurions collection;



The Heroes:

Max Ray with Cruiser:


Jake Rockwell with Fireforce:


Ace McCloud with Skynight:


Assault Weapons Systems:
Tidal Blast:


Wild Weasel:




Hornet:


Detonator:


Orbital Interceptor:


Skybolt:


The Villains:

Doc Terror:



Hacker:


Strafer Drone:



Well that wraps it up for my Centurions stuff, I've got the majority of the stuff released here in the U.K. except for the Depth Charger weapons system & I believe one of the green coloured ground based enemy drone. I know the line got continued in the U.S. of A does anybody here collect or have any?

I think it's Kenners forgotten toy line, I can remember seeing them in local toy stores yet most people seem to think that they saw a limited release here in England.  

What killed the series in the States.. was it their size, expense or didn't they just catch on with kids?





Thanks for looking

T'shot

I had the Ace mccloud and my friend had Max and Jake. I really don't remember these a lot, but I think they were around when gi joe was and that was the leading boy toy at that time. These are larger and out of scale with everything that preceded them and the competition in toys at the time was rich with stuff (heman, transformers, gi joe, thundercats, etc...) so I am guessing that is why the line did not survive.

I was never really a fan of G.I. Joe or military-esque figures.. but I do like the way The Villains look! Definitely creepy.

The pictures, as always, are superb!
