Galoob Last Star Fighter
As the Star Wars franchise started to slow down with the finality of "Return of the Jedi", Hollywood scrambled for another big Science Fiction franchise and "The Last Starfighter" looked like it was the one. The movie tied in America's love of video games with an honest to goodness space adventure, it was also the first movie to use CGI effects. Licensors lined up, Atari had video games ready, Marvel did a tie in comic and Galoob was ready to unleash a line of action figures. Sadly the film was a disappointment and the line never saw release, here is what we missed out on.
The initial tease for the Galoob line featuring the poster image, why this film wasn't a bigger hit I'll never know..
Galoob was bucking the trend by releasing the figures in two packs.
The initial 12 figure offering we never got, there is no mention of playsets or spaceships in this catalog, a real shame.
