In 1982, LJN toys beat out rival toymake Mego for the rights to produce toys based on the popular TSR role play game "Dungeons and Dragons" and a great underrated series of toys was born. The LJN D&D line was sort of a grown up version of Masters of the Universe with it's Elves, Wizards and Orcs populating a somewhat dark middle earth environment. Sadly, the line didn;'t fare well, most likely due to then strong opposition to the game itself and it's themes.
Despite being kicked out of my sole D&D game when I was 12 (I didn't really "get" role playing and decided to be an ass) I really dug these toys and bought much of the first wave of figures. Click on the images below to see larger pages with descriptions:
